Well, in case anybody missed it, last week Admiral Drax finished my Tankbustas! Not only do they look fantastic, but they ought to be shipping out to me today.
|Note: The bases weren't flocked per my request. This way I'll be able to base em to match my army.|
That said...they're only (according to google maps) about 5 hours from Warsaw, which needs a little bit of a roughing up.
|Ok boyz, fink uv it az a Kommando raid...|
Not the whole city mind you, just Maxmini's offices. Ya see, the Green Alliance kickstarter has reached the 1 year behind schedule mark this month, and there's little relief in sight. I'd really like my Orc Shooterz, but...well its yet another Kickstarter, by a long established company, that can release new products from their regular product lines, but not follow thru with their KS promises. Yeah...I don't care what they have to offer, I'm not buying any of it till I get my Orks! The discontent pales in comparison to say...the Robotech Tactics' mythical Wave 2 but still, us backers aren't to happy.
|Av yoo seen deez boyz? No? Yeah, me neether...|
So it would be great if my Boyz could go in, rokkits blazin' and rescue my Ork Shooterz prior to shipping home.
Oh well, at least I'm getting some well-painted Orks, that were a bitch to paint I'm sure (which is why I didn't want to paint em myself). Indeed to Drax's quote on the subject:
'Hopefully I'll never need to paint one of these blasted sculpts ever again...'
lol, but anyways this really wasn't supposed to be a 'rant' post as Drax has done both a superb job and a huge favor for me by painting these boyz up! Though I will admit to being a bit jealous that my Tankbustas got to enjoy an extended trip to a country that I myself may never be able to afford to visit.
