Parts for riptides have arrived! So am starting work on them now! Few parts are missing, so have submitted a claim.



Missing parts from last week update!! Submitted my claim no issues at all. Shapeways is great some how instead of them sending me the missing parts they just refunded me store credit. :D I am a happy camper!

Good to hear there was no issue. Their customer service tends to be really good about those kinds of things. One bonus is that during their investigation they discovered an error with my file which I was able to correct. Nothing big, but it should print better in the future.

Have made some progress, I made a pretty big mistake and ended up stripping all the ripetides down. I took the opportunity to do more Magnetizing am much higher happier with that aspect of the models.

Arms, jets, all guns, and heads it will help for posing and storange.

Picked up a new orange base paint.

Won't be using liquid mask this time.

The 42nd was also dispatched to a distant world, a deep space probe indicated a demononic fisher forming on Galin a near by rogue sphere.

Image

Upon arrival the local inhabitants had already fallen victim to the first wave of demon forces.

The 42nd lead by Shas'Gilnor took up bombardment formations and began to hammer the foes with heavy Missle fire. The probes indicated 60% casualties after the first bombardment. A large amount of demons arrived through the Fisher. Repeated bombardment resulted in heavy casualties with remaining forces abandoning the planet.

The 42nd suffered minimal damage, with exceptional to one stormsurge leaving with heavy systems damage.

Major Victory!

:biggrin:

Doing some work on the tetras, had some damage to my Airbrush nozzle. Ordered another and a ultrasonic to clean the parts better too.


Finally got a sure fire process for my orange, much easier to apply and get the same result.

Base paint, was just missing a solid base paint between two paint layers.

Glad to finish up these tetras a good addition to the collection. Next question is what Forgeworld unit do I add to my collection next l.

Had another battle using the reserve forces borrow from a friend.

Lost by 1 point due to alpha legion warlord hopping. Killed the warlord 4 times in that fight. Learned enough practicing to stand proud and know I didn't waste my money :)

I really like how you built up the bases on the Tetras and hid the flight stem. Gives them a great appearance of barely skimming the surface, which is how I imagine them moving across the field of battle.

Thank you :)

Am pretty happy with how they mesh with the environment.


Update on ripetide bases!

I used some clay to keep the still water from running off the base

Had a part on my Airbrush hey damaged replacement part was delayed due to snow storm. Once it get here will finish up the ripetide and complete the mounting process.

Then will get some pluck foam tray's to protect them.
