I managed to find myself an good deal on some used Space Marines. Someone on a Facebook group I am a part of needed to sell off his Ultramarines. He was selling off:
- 10 Terminators (5 finished, 5 without arms and primed)
- 5 Scouts with sniper rifles and a missile launcher
- 20 Tac Marines
- 5 Devastator Marines
- 3 Bikes
- 5 Assault Marines
- An untouched command group box
- a bunch of bits sprues.
I also just received an order from Miniature Market today containing the Season 2 and 3 rulebooks for Dreadball. It was also supposed to have the main box set in the order but they instead sent me the Base Rulebook. A quick call to them about it and they said they'd ship out the main set today. I don't even need to send back the mistake. Very nice of them. I have ordered a ton of stuff from them and I have had 0 complaints about their customer service. I have said it before, and I will say it again, if you live in the US, you should check them out. Good prices, awesome service. And no, I'm not getting anything for saying that. I wish I was! ;)
I also managed to put together almost all of my Dropzone Commander starter set. The Firestorm Armada set is complete. Here's some pics:

And the Terran side:

I've also started assembling my Dystopian Wars starter set. It's actually surprisingly easy to assemble.You just have to put the main gun turrets on the ships and then there's a choice of generators or a rocket battery. All which can be simly placed on the model or magnetized. They're unlikely to fall off during play, so there's likely no need to magnetize them. I'll likely test them un-magnetized and then if they need it, I'll do it later.
I also just got two other things in the mail. The first is something called MaskFX, a stick on stencil of sorts (I call it a reverse stencil) for doing camouflage patterns by Critical Mass Games. I got the digi-camo version to do my Dropzone Commander UMC vehicles in urban camo. The second thing I got was a Kickstarter I back called Stencilis. They're a flexible silicone stencil. I pledged at the 10 Stencil level and finally got them. Haven't had a chance to use them yet, but the "camp ground" stencil will be perfect for painting lambda symbols on my Minotaur Space Marine vehicles.
That's about it for now. I will try to do updates as I can' It's just hard to sit in front of the computer and do this right now. :)
