Website Down

At some point very early this morning the server which hosts my site broke.
All the data from that server is being migrated to another server, with a bit of luck this will mean my site is up and running tonight, though it could be tomorrow.

Really very sorry about this.



Michael.

RDF Update

Right then.
As you may know there has been a delay on the new RDF.

This is due to the Female Trooper.
A few master moulds have been done of her, the first one had problems with the arm not casting and the gun being possibly too thin.
The last master sorted the arm issue but the casters are convinced that if the production mould was made the gun would end up being so thin it may simply not be cast.

So this afternoon I got out the Green Stuff and thickened up the rifle.
Hopefully it is now thick enough to be successfully cast from a production mould.

I will post this Monday and it will be with the casters on Tuesday.
Hopefully they can get the new master and maybe the production mould done quite soon after that.


Sooooo fingers crossed very shortly they will be available...


YAY

Painted RDF

I have at last managed to finish painting my 4 squads of RDF troopers, which includes the as yet unreleased packs and the MS1 Pathmaster (Ranger Variant).


Could there be a game soon...?

I had some custom decals made for the vehicles and am looking at costs to make them commercially available incase you want to use 'official' decals.

I also added some stowage to the vehicles too, they do not come with any, but I like that worn out, used, lived in campaign look.

OKI wall set

I have been mould making and casting over the weekend and I have finished the first set of walls.

In the set you get:

2 gate sections
4 corner sections
8 wall sections

Each wall and gate section is 50mm long and 22mm tall, the walls are 10mm thick at the base.

This gives you just over 50cm of OKI protection!

 
 
I am going to make some more moulds for the walls so I can cast up a few at once and when I have a few sets ready I will get them on the website for you!
 
 
Are your employees safe and ok on that remote colony world?
If they have OKI then they are OK!

OKI walls are printed

A while back I posted the images of my OKI Corporation walls, designed to keep their MHUs nice and safe.

http://angelbarracks.blogspot.co.uk/2012/09/oki-walls-for-mhus.html


Well today I received the printed models I shall be using to make the moulds from.

I have a sneaking suspicion no-one quite anticipated they would be this bad ass.
I am actually really pleased how thse have turned out and can't wait to get some cast up so I can have some myself..


:D


Here are some shots for your viewing pleasure:


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I will be making the moulds over the weekend and should have some ready painted by the middle of next week and have worked out the prices by then.
 
 
 
Oh, and yes, I think they would work well with 15mm figures too!

Camel is painted and pre-orders getting closer

Just painted the Camel up in BPI colours:



 




Not very exciting, but then a research vehicle need not be exciting...


The casters have started spinning the models so they should be with me by the end of the week and with the pre-order customers quite soon!
