Well here we are, meteorological Fall (in the northern hemisphere, that is...). Time for some new releases! So, as of right this minute, the 15mm versions of the Federation Scorpion LACV, and the Venturian Kh'Erisan MBT and Kh'Lrian IFV are now available for general sale. If you didn't know, the development of these 3 vehicles was funded via a Kickstarter campaign that was successful because we here at Darkest Star Games have the coolest, most awesome and discerning customers! Heck ya!
In pre-order news, the long-awaited Venturian Lift Infantry squad is now up for Pre-order, and word is that the Command squad will possibly be ready next month. Maybe some Federation opposition too. We will see...
Also very soon, the previously teased Spec-Sec High Intensity Response Team should be along in a matter of weeks (or hopefully days!)
Keep your eyes open, there is more to come!
This is the final week to preorder the 5x 15mm sci-fi car set. Get in while you still can!
We are very pleased to announce that we now have a 5-pack of 1/100 scale/15mm sci-fi cars now available for pre-order!
$20usd gets you one each of (left to right) a Metro-Coup, a Cruiser (which comes with optional light-bar to make it a Police Cruiser), a Mini-Van, Super Sports Car, and Vintage Sports Car (pictured in front). Each resin model comes with both metal wheels and grav/vectored thrust nozzles so you can have either ground cars or those flying ones we were promised oh-so-long-ago!
This pre-order is set to deliver by April 7th. Should production take long, we will let you know. As usual pre-order items are slightly discounted and after the pre-order is over the price for the set will be raised to it's "normal".
Note: flight stands are NOT included. You will need to provide your own.
You can find this set on the pre-order page: HERE.
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!
...upon them models!
The Spec-Sec armored command truck has so far been brush painted with base colors and a little bit of ink. I've been waiting for some custom decals to arrive, but I'm starting to think they will not. Sad face. Well, at least I can get on with further detailing and weathering! figure from Blue Moon Manf is for scale. Love them dudes!
For the Puma and S'orhan I've busted out the old airbrush. It's been too cold here for it to work effectively, but I've done what I can! The Puma too is ready for weathering , though I've decided to skip the filter beforehand (the S'orhan is still drying from filter application. I wanted something red so had to use oil paints. Can't tell the result yet, but here's to hoping!). Again, I have been waiting for decals, but am now pressing on.
There is more to come, and updates as we go along! Remember, there is only 3 weeks left on the current pre-order. Get
Hey y'all! I hope your holiday season has been a good one. The flu has hit like a hammer around here despite trying to avoid it like the proverbial plague. Tis the season!
So... the pre-order for the 15mm version of the Talin IFV is coming to a close at the end of the week. Orders will begin to ship out of here Monday. And a little bird told me the "big 'uns" might just be ready soon as well!
As of 11:59 pm on December 15, the free stowage package deal for early 15mm Talin pre-orders has expired. Those who got their orders in during the first couple of days will receive one 22 piece stowage package for each individual 15mm Talin in their order. ...and let me tell you that's a LOT of stowage!
A BIG "thank you" to everyone that has made a pre-order so far, we really appreciate it!
