I was involved with the Albedo Miniatures Kickstarter. I adapted Combat Patrol for the Albedo universe. I also bought into the Kickstarter to get some of the figures and vehicles. The figures are really nice and will work by themselves or mixed in with other science fiction figures and games. I am working short days this week, so yesterday afternoon I painted two vehicles and an aircraft that I had prepped and partially assembled two days ago.
The fires support vehicle comes with a more traditional gun, but somehow during prep, I accidentally threw out the barrel, and it was trash day, so by the time I realized it, my barrel was on the way to the landfill. So, I replaced it with a “Tesla gun” from Company B miniatures. I am going to have to order another couple of packs of those barrels. They have come in hand recently.
I really like this aircraft. In fact, I have ordered two more of the kit with more optional variants. I had a little trouble figuring out how to attack all the various weapons, and had to refer to pictures online, but I love this kit! I plan to use this both for Albedo and for other science fiction games.
At Historicon I purchased a giant gorilla from Eureka Miniatures. Two weeks ago, when I opened up the packaging, I discovered that the gorilla’s left arm was missing. Rob put one in the mail right away, and it arrived before I returned from my long business trip. So, I painted it while I was painting my Hawaiians.
