    The Griffin is special to me because discovering its very bad minimum range issue led me to falling in love with LLs and MRMs

    Your "CapnNips Approved" content for the day: I had to change resins on my 3D printer, so I'm dialing it in with Fresh Stompybots; Syllogy's MWO Blackjack on the left, CGL on the right:

    *chef's kiss*

    And now, a question for the lore nerds:
    I've got line items in my Units list for Chloe's Cavaliers and Jake Kalmar's pirate crew. The Cavs are the unit that, before they became Nik's Cavaliers in MW5, were sent to hunt down Jake and his lostech Ravager Corsair. I'm trying to figure out what both sides of this fight might have brought, and here's all I know:

    Cavaliers: Wolverine, Phoenix Hawk

    Kalmar's Crew: Corsair, Trebuchet

    Does anyone know of any other confirmed or noted 'Mechs in either unit? If not, what do you think might go well in either? Keeping in mind, we know the Cavs were sporting SLDF-tech at least in the P.Hawk, so if they were supplied by ComStar by way of Interstellar Expeditions, it's possible they were packing more.

    So PGI kinda goofed up the backstory on the Ravager, not sure how or why the Cavaliers went back to being Chloe’s and not Nik’s between 3015 and 3037.

    Technically you’re open on what mechs you can field, but if you wanted to be cheeky you could run a Nightstar.

    Crossposting my Atlas from the painting thread because I'm pretty chuffed with how he turned out. Some slight printlines if you get real close, but a lot less panel lines than some of the CGS mechs!

    Random questions.

    For those of you who have hung up the posters in frames, what frames you recommend? Cause man, they are either expensive or cheap in both senses from what I can tell.

    Context - my wife used to be a framing manager at Michael's arts & crafts (like an AC Moore or a Hobby Lobby).

    She didn't think it'd be worth doing any special mounting because the posters were folded (I am, genuinely, extremely salty about this), so I'll probably just get something relatively cheap. It's a $3 poster, and it's creased. So that unfortunately puts it firmly in the "probably don't bother spending much" category for me.

  • DarkewolfeDarkewolfe Registered User regular
    I tried to find whatever frame I bought, but I think I bought it in a larger order for other frames. I bought a fairly nice one and while you can still barely see the creases, I don't mind because I'm never getting a sweet Timber Wolf piece of art otherwise and it displays nicely.

    What is this I don't even.

    It's so funny the timing you posted that, because I just printed off a Chonky Boi of my own, and was going to be like "Hey look at this Chonky Boi, isn't he cute?" and then you blew up the place. Which is great! I want to see more!

    But anyway! Here's more Chonky Bois, in Chocolate and Vanilla flavors:

    I am a little disappointed in the CGS atlas when compared to the intimidating brick craphouse of the PGI lad. I suppose he is closer to the goofy football star of the original though.

    "Papa, what's wrong with that Atlas's face?"
    "Don't stare son. It's impolite."

    Grinder.

    Grinder!

    Ran this very special Alpha Strike session today. Jump in with a mech of 20 points or less. Each time you get wrecked, take a turn off before coming in with an additional 10 points (So 20, 30, 40, 50 and so on).

    The result was quite fun, and a pleasant surprise that I actually had three other people to play with today!

    How much do everyone else clean up the mechs before starting to paint?

    I noticed some moldlines that I felt was noticeble, but I'm not sure if it's better to leave them rather that risk cleaning away details?

    Had a Battletech (MechWarrior, technically, I suppose) dream last night.

    I was in a Commando doing a raid and there was a Warhammer and Cataphract still in their parking spots so I splashed the cockpits with medium lasers, followed up by melee to crumple them to make them unusable but salvageable.

    For some reason I chose the Cataphract over the Warhammer, but I didn't finish the dream so I'm not sure how I outfitted it.

    It's a really good habit to remove those lines and almost necessary if you're going to do any dry brushing.

    And if you use a good clean, fresh blade and take your time, you probably won't lose any detail.

    Okay, so I know most of us are still in the post-Kickstarter refractory period, swimming in more 'mechs than we know what to do with. But I thought I'd mention that one of the larger east-coast retailers just got in a big shipment of stuff, and *as of this second* hasn't yet sold out.

    So if you're looking for more, at reasonably sane prices, here you go.

    Also, I take this that either 1) some big ships finally came in, or less likely 2) the shipping situation has at least eased a smidgen, either of which is a good sign.

    The true answer, many hours later, is that I have a deep-rooted brain disease, and the only way I can keep it at bay is by having everyone else buy all the things so I cannot.

    And given the $Whoops I just spent on another small pile of packs, it has clearly been proven to me that the rest of you cannot be trusted to keep me from doing bad things!

    For anyone that cares!

    CGL has put up the first run of Stormcrow-TC premium models in their web store.

    I imagine they won't last more than an hour or two, given how the Black Knight (still out of stock!) went on its launch day.

    Also, they're selling the Tukkayid Salvage Packs they had at the conventions this summer/fall, containing a pile of offcast bits from the Creative Juggernaut production lines at $10 a pop.

    I may have just made another $Whoops.

    Guess I should have bet the over, because it looks like the Stormcrow TC kits are still available three hours later! Good sign of supply progress from Creative Juggernaut.

    Darn you... That Stormcrow is tempting me since it looks like my LB20X build I run for the laughs in MWO. I hate to see the shipping for one unit though.

    Edit: Forgot to add that it is still in stock as of this post. Over 7 hours later.

    Listen. I'm about to land four bags of Tukayyid parts. It might take some cleanup, but if I can't assemble you something out of that then I've made a terrible, terrible mistake.

    And I'm super impressed the stock of the 'Crow has held up this long. Even limiting it to one per customer, I fully expected it to have sold through by late this afternoon.

    Wait, what are Tukayyid parts? I need to look at those when I'm more aware what I'm doing.

    Fake Edit: I put in a ton of pre-orders for a bunch of Star Wars and Transformers stuff today.

    Looks like the Tukayyid salvage bags are bags of ~10 mech bits that didn't pass QA. Miscasts and the like.

    @McGibs What are you using for your antenna wire?

    Also those decals on both, and the pattern on the Crab, are tastefully sexy.

    (Probably in the same FB groups I'm in. I've seen you there!)

    Okay, cool. I'm about thirty hobby-time seconds away from trying this, and was wondering how well they take paint, or if you even paint them at all.

    Mine took paint just fine, not even primed. Acrylic is flexible.
    Unless you can find black bristled toothbrushes out there...

    Could probably find black bristled hair brushes that'd work. The black bristled toothbrushes I've found tend to be pricy for toothbrushes.
    But then, we dropped a heavy chunk of change on tiny stompy bots, what's another 7-8 bucks for a life time supply of scale whip antennae?
