Relief at Progress


Finally, I've managed get the paint on the torso and head to match the work I'd done before having to strip it. Phew. Breathe a sigh of relief at managing this. A first for me matching glazes and washes, made easier using a wet palette and additives.

Just have to do the final assembly, varnish and decal the torso and head to call Ferretti's Buster done.

In other news, I've acquired two Kodiaks and an armored Hunter. The Kodiaks will be converted into Busters to go with the one above. 

No doubt I will tinker with variant weapons loadouts on these.

The Armored Hunter was an impulse purchase that took my fancy. I'm tempted to make it the ride for my CASDA weapons specialist.

These took an awful long time to make it across the Atlantic, and at one point I thought the parcel had gone missing. Much relief now they've safely arrived. All the RAFM Gears are mine!

That's all for now. Catch you on the bounce.


  1. Top job on painting that Mech ! :)

    1. Thank you. It was an interesting exercise in creative guessing at how to match an already painted set of arms and legs to a repainted torso where a lot of the finish comes from serendipitous application of colours. :-)

  2. The armored hunter was one that I always liked back in the day and still do. I like the combo of the extra armor (especially on the head and chest) along with the treaded secondary movement system. My only complaint is the small engine on back but in universe that's fixed by the bear hunter that uses the larger fire support engine with the armored hunter body/limbs. Regardless, two kodiaks and an armored hunter is a nice Rafm haul!

    1. I'm of the swap parts around kind of gal. The different engine pack style has inspired some ideas for a different Ape variant.
