Well this last week I received several packages in the mail and it will give me some material to start working on the marines a little more. The first package I got was 300 magnets! 200 are 1/8th inch and 100 are 1/16th inch. I normally use the 1/8th inch magnets for everything from vehicle doors to marines and dreads. The 1/16th inch magnets are something new for me. I was planning on using them to magnetize special weapons onto marines. So far this has been successful, I have used the 1/16th magnets on 2 marines (1 tac and 1 assault) and on 5 guns (Bolter, Bolt Pistol, Meltagun, Plasmagun, and Flamer). I may have to post a simple tutorial on how I do it, it's not hard at all, and I may have to do one for the Contempor arms as well (they are a bit more complicated).
Well besides the Magnets I received a good size order of bits from Scibor. I got the Lion decorative plates, more lion helmets and more shoulder pads. I am a bit worried about the AoBR tac marines and how much work it's going to be to remove their left shoulder to put on the lion ones. Finally the last package I received was the Space Marine MEGAFORCE! Man was this box bigger then I expected. I have not opened the box yet as I think there may be an unboxing video in the works, but I am really looking forward to starting on this kit. I am not looking forward to 1 part of it though... another drop pod. I like how they look and work in the game, but man do they have a lot of surface area to paint!
Scibor bits FTW!
I have also been working on an a flying Assault Marine squad, the AoBR Captain, and the Rhino from the SM Battle Force. I am also running out local tournament this Sunday and have upped to points for the Tournament up to 1850.
Here is a question for you guys. What do you think is the best size for a monthly run tournament and why?
I will finally leave you with the AoBR Dread that I finally got based.
