Catching Up

This last week has been very busy with work and having to deal with changing my internet service provider.  The one bright light amid all the stress this caused was my Heavy Gear KickStarter pledge arriving from Dream Pod 9.

I took some pictures of everything unpacked, kept the rule-book out to read and had a hell of job getting everything back inside the box.  Whoever packed this did an excellent job.  I ordered the Caprice army in addition to the four army starter pack, added a couple of extra Accos, and took advantage of the option to buy some Terra Nova terrain: Badlands Outpost and four stone heads.

As you can see in the above picture I also took up the offer to add a couple of standard models to my order: the new Hoplite and a couple of metal Gears – Hunter and Jaguar for a special conversion.  So Christmas has arrived early at the Paint-it-Pink household.


  1. A nice haul!
    I look forward to receiving mine.

  2. Oh that is a lovely big pile of shiny niceness!
    Cant wait to see that all get put together :-)

  3. Congrats on receiving the kickstarter load! Just in case you haven't heard, there are some minor to moderate QA casting issues that you should check for on your sprues that they detail on their forums (beyond what they mentioned in an update) like missing parts, dimples, folds, etc. Some of those are easy fixes like the dimples but others are not unless you want to resculpt bits.

    1. I've been keeping an eye out on the forum. You know me though, all this is largely conversion fodder. I imagine some will be disappointed though, but my expectations have been mostly met. I will be posting some comments soon on my impressions, just as soon as I find time to take pictures, but at the moment I'm still sorting out change of domain stuff.
