Anvil Industry Afterlife Kickstarter

One of the best bits suppliers out there, and possibly my overall favourite, Anvil Industry - has finally been letting loose on the promised gamesystem AFTERLIFE - yay! They are already way beyond their goal, 2h39min - I think Joel was in shock, great. But head over there, have a look and get ready to support one of the best miniatures companies out there.

PDC Gaming's tracked weapon platform Review

Some time ago I participated in a Kickstarter from PDC Gaming trying to get some stuff going. I received my plastics just the other day, a combined order of weapon platforms and heavy weapons. As I have been wanting some artillery for my AdMech for quite some time I wanted to put these together ASAP and see if I got what I wanted.
The weapon platform can be fitted with a laser type of weapon, but the accessory sprue will let you add different weapons - cannons, gatling cannon and rocket launcher, as well as let you make a closed compartment platform.

Assembly is rather straight forward with just a few mould-lines. Unfortunately the tracks have some rather annoying mould-lines which takes quite some time to get rid off. The quality of the plastic is excellent without bends or any other problems.
You can make quite a lot of different weapon types from the bits, and the ones I needed the most was the laser and multi barrelled cannon. You also have the option of adding the "top" to the fuselage, and place the weapons on top of that. Personally I like the platform without the top the best. 

All in all I think these are a great find, and hope to get some time to paint them soon, as one always need artillery when playing those pesky CSM. Now on to some priests to tend to them......................

And for completion, the heavy weapons sprues - haven't build anything yet from them but this is how they look. Not sure what I'll use them for yet, perhaps just parts.

Between a lot of real life action, tons of projects and several really cool bits from kickstarters that have been rolling in, I finally found time to paint a few more tiny warriors. Namely a couple of chaplains to lead my jump troops as well as my terminators. I was really lucky to find an original terminator chaplain - at least I think I was lucky. Never seen one before so I took it they were quite rare.
I'll show off the new Mechanicus bits from the kickstarters over the next days

Heavy support rolling in

Almost done with these heavy support units, just a bit on the weathering side to go. I'm not quite sure why I have only painted three Predators though, as a units consist of four - DOH!

MOM - I just had the weirdest dream

 - I dreamt I had gone to a land with really small mes!

Yes, I know what you are thinking, but bear with me and read on and I think you'll see what I mean. Got a bunch of new models painted up during the weekend. A couple of commanders and a host of scouts. Unfortunately Pig Iron Produtions doesn't make 6mm conversion bits.Have I said before that I really enjoy painting these small minis!!!

...and the dream shot!

Smallest terminators I ever saw!

Somebody might say I'm a WYSIWYG nutter - and they might be right. I simply couldn't bring my selv to say that a unit of termies has two assaultcannons without it being visible at all. So cutting down their bolters and adding a 1mm plastic rod I soon had a handful of armoured and very small terminators with the proper weapons. Also began the work on some scouts I was lucky enough to get my hands on.

Almost an army!

Hey look at this - almost an army painted up in about a month! As earlier stated I really enjoy this painting Epic stuff, and I have to keep moving since I got literally about 5 kg more plastic in the mail yesterday. Best parcel ever - thanks ZOG! The content will make myself and a couple of friends really happy in the future. At least 4 armies in there.
Anyways - here is what it looks like all painted up so far.
