I had an email from a customer today who was alarmed that I had accidentally slipped in something extra into his order, and he was afraid someone else may have been shorted in theirs. This is a first for me, as no one else has said anything when I've placed a freebie in their package. So I explained to him that there was no mistake. Not only do I occasionally slip in extra stuff for repeat customers or those that spend a lot of money with me (maybe I need to start a rewards card program? ha ha!) but I also include extras in the 1st, 10th, 20th, and every 10 orders after that, per month and I try to remember to write it on the packing slip, but sometimes forget to. He just happened to be the 10th order of this month, so received something a little extra that would be of use with the other things he'd bought, and i hadn't scribbled as to why!
Today I'm shipping out the 20th order this month to a fella in France, all 6mm Federation stuff, so he'll be getting a couple of free Khiff things for them to blast.
So, if you receive something extra, don't freak out! Thanks are appreciated, but not necessary. It's just my way of saying thank you for your support.
The 15mm Puma, S'orhan, and Armored Command Truck pre-order is closed and all orders have been shipped out! These products have now been added to their assigned webstore locations and prices, but we've added platoon deals for the Grav armor.
So you might be wondering what's next? Well, in the immediate na new drive armor has just finished up its trial runs and is ready for deployment, as are some civilian "get around". As soon as there are some less-than-freezing temperatures to allow some paint to get sprayed on you'll see them! Stay tuned folks!
Like just about everywhere in the US, it's been cold here. Very cold! I have had a difficult time reacquainting myself with my airbrush due to my big-ole air compressor being bolted to the floor in the corner of my cold cold cold garage. So, it has taken some time to get the S'orhan all sprayed up. It was a real trial, with having to clean the airbrush every minute of spray time or so, but it is done!
Below you will see one S'orhan worked up with airbrush, the other (a miscast) painted by brush. Sound off on which you like better!
The green for the visual sensors didn't come out as bright as I'd like it to be, nor did the red filter (oil paint) that I applied to the sprayed tank have as much effect as I wanted it to. Next time I will mix up Johnny Ridden Zeon Red and make them look Orkie Fast!
Production of our newest items seems to be ahead of schedule! Some of the most recent pre-order items will be shipping out by this Friday, and once all of the orders are out we will wrap up this preorder and set the models to general release. This will include setting their rices up to their "normal", but a slight discount can still be had with "platoon deals".
And soon we will reveal more February releases, and maybe show off some other stuff in the works. We'll have to see if y'all behave!
