    The first part of my MBP pledge arrived on Thursday morning….

    I could not afford the top pledge at the time so I cherry picked the bits I wanted. The expansions were the first to arrive.

    Up until I saw MBP on BOW I had never backed a Kickstarter – mostly through fear of losing money or being disappointed with the end product. However after watching numerous videos and Demo games on BOW I backed MBP on day one. I could not afford the top tier pledge at the time but I think I picked the best parts for me personally.

    Anyways enough waffle – I have made a start on my first box the Hephaestus expansion.

    These are the mechanical warriors…wip

    just laying in base colours on Acamas…

    Love the colour that you got on the Mechanical Warriors – so clean and shiny!

    It’s going to be great painting the minis, different styles to work on; monsters, divinities, stone, metal, fire and lava, glow effects, skin, cloth, fur – it’s going to make a change from futuristic armour and guns.

    @chillreaper They were the exact reasons I backed MBP – it was for something completely different from the norm to paint.

    The miniatures themselves are really good – very little to no flashing – they take primer and paint really well. I don’t know who they use exactly to make the mini’s but they need to keep them on board for future projects. The mini’s are top notch quality.

    That’s looking good :-)
    I’ve only opened the titans box and they look lovely and almost perfect.
    Did you open any of the other boxes yet ?

    @limburger – I have opened them – just to take a quick peek. They all look amazing.

    I’ve started to experiment with lava bases – something I’ve never done before but I think it’s turned out ok…

    Love the progress on the mechanical warriors, they look very much like the Dwemer in the Oblivion series.

    @martin45

    Is that done with cork sheeting and hot glue? Looks like something that I wouldn’t be too keen to stand on! I can almost hear it going bubble and blop!

    I’m still thinking of perspex bases, but the more that I see what people are coming up with is making me think about reconsidering my plan.

  • Avatar Image martin45663p said 1 week, 4 days ago:

    @chillreaper Yes mate it was done exactly that way and to be honest it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I looked through old vids on youtube and this appeared to give the best results…

    I thought about using transparent bases myself but I like messing about with bases and I think they look quite cool plus they add that little bit more colour to the mini’s themselves…

    I actually cannot bear the wait much longer. I have NEVER wanted a KS to arrive as much as this…and I have backed a few ????

  • Avatar Image limburger1862p said 1 week, 4 days ago:

    @martin45 :
    I’d also suggest looking at the lava floor bases that @caladors made for massive darkness :

    Glue gun can be a little tricky…but nothing a scalpel can’t solve. :)

    @carlosfandango if it’s any consolation the wait will definitely be worth it. – Hope you get yours soon fella….

    @lancorz I just liked the colours but your right…. :)

    Loving the strong colour schemes, and the obvious efforts to match them to the playing surface. Looks great!
