Your not planning to start them on an Airfix Spitfire . Your definitely not British as I would guess it's 95% of British peoples first plastic kit.

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

I've got Medge, IMEX chemical plants, Proxie, Reaper and a pet store hamster wheel in there, it's a who's who of scratch building!

Mrs Kyoto is Japanese so their first kit was a Tokyo Olympics Gundam

Last night's effort was a Revell U Wing fighter kit. Pre painted, cut off sprues, just super easy to assemble and look good.



If you don't lose a piece of the lower hull when you're throwing out the packaging of course...

It's about 1/72 so can't really pass for a shuttle but makes a fine 1 man fighter/courier thing. It has lights and sounds but I popped out the batteries.

Used my new 2 part grey stuff (cheaper than green, good for bulky jobs without detail) for a base and got this.



Still needs more distressing but should be a quick and easy terrain objective.

That's a really cool crash. Did you decide to wreck it because you threw away a panel? Or was it a happy accident?

It was always going to be a wreck, I knew it would be too small and I need some wrecks/junkyard ships for the port. So I wasn't toio upset.

Nice progress on the port. Those Unity signs are fantastic. I've been OD'ing on Conspirituality and Cult podcasts so this sort of gaming crossover is weird but great.

Definitely liking the Stargrave crew set.



Feels like the sci fi kit I've been waiting 20 years for. 5 bodies, 15 sets of arms and 20 heads on every sprue. So basically buy a box of these and count on having enough rifles left over to equip a box of cultists or whoever.



Size wise a bit smaller than GW, even older GW.



Cadian, Stargrave, Empire, Medge Broken

Not a deal breaker for me, but worth noting.

So the Renedra Middle East Buildings are my new favorite thing in the world. Thanks Insaniak for the tip!

http://www.thecommguild.com/roller/thecommguild/entry/terrain-spotlight-converted-renedra-desert

(technically called Afghanistan To Middle East Two-Storey Houses if you're looking)





You get 3 slightly different ones, (each made from 2 sets of identical walls, one blank one with windows), about 6"x6" with lots of room for customizing and decorating. I like how one floor has carpets molded to it so you can have figures sitting or lying there. Flat roofs are much more practical if there's little rain or snow and if you don't have AC, lying on your roof was the best way to get some sleep in the summer.

And finished building my 20 Stargrave crew.



Recruits



Soldiers



Specialists



Who says there's no grenade launchers, sniper rifles and flame throwers in this box?



Seeing if I can do a captain and first mate out of the box.





And played with the free Cultists and Gnolls from the Nickstarter.

Lots of bits left over, fun kits to build. Going to have to get more after I catch up on some painting.

WIP Gendarmerie (basic IG) for the Arbites.



A colonel supported by 4 infantry squads, an inquisitor and 3 sentinels.



For the bases they got ruins decorated with obviously heretical messages like "Peace", "Justice" and "Protest".

I hope the Sentinels have loudspeakers to advise the cultists to disperse.

I love the Sentinel kit it's the rare IG kit that actually has all the options on it and more.



I think we can figure one of the roof do-dads is a loud speaker.



Squad close up, I'm thinking the need more fliers to trample on.

Got some paint on my Thunder Warrior



Fairly happy with the muted scheme.



Also started work on my Revel Halo Pelican model. Quick build, maybe 20 minutes and that includes taking out the batteries from the electronic sounds part. 1/100 scale but works for 28mm, about Valkyrie sized. My only complaint is no weapons for the pylons. But that's what bitz boxes are for right?



Also got in my metal Cadian Special Weapons just in time for them to go OOP.

While these models should never have existed, all special weapons should have been in the plastic set, they are nice and will work OK with my 2nd edition Cadian metals.

Or I may keep them in a blister and sell them later to pay for the kids' college.

Decisions, decisions.

That Pelican looks like it was actually designed for Warhammer- perfect size and sculpting.

Yup, the siren call of metal minis in blisters. The soft susurration of the Sibyls sneaking into your dreams whispering "Open me, you'll paint me if I'm open."

Resist you must!

Imperial heavy lifter shuttle (counts as Sky Talon Valkyrie)

Formally referred to as the "Salmo Ventus heavy lifter", this shuttle's front attachment point has given it the nickname "Chin Hook".

The name is of course a pun because why even name things if it's not a pun? Besides being a Pacific Northwest tribe Chinook is also a work for a strong wind off of the Rockies and a species of salmon. Hence the Salmon Wind Chin Hook.

"Chin Hook"- geez I'm slow! I've parachuted out of them and didn't get the pun until you actually explained it!

Excellent build- the kitbash gives a very solid, satisfying 'lift anything' vibe.

High praise indeed. It still needs something, maybe some grappling arms on the waist. But I'm just glad it hasn't fallen apart in the night.

Meanwhile...



With its cockpit repurposed for the Chin Hook, the Inqui-I mean Mining Inspection shuttle, got a new cockpit made from Ork Dakkajet bits. Seriously, the Ork Dakkajet has an insane amount of excess bits, there's like 3 or 4 ways the build the cockpit alone.

Also...



I want to address the rumors I'm starting a Space Marine army.

I am not.

When I started my Arbites army my backup plan was to do a Police/Urban Combat themed Marine force called the Emperor's Finest. And these are just some spare marines from the bitz box I'm using to see how it would have worked. But I'm not going to start a whole marine army.

Nope.

No way.

I'm just wondering how many marines I have in my bitz box anyway.
