++ My Epic Score about to be someone else's! ++

So just wanted to drop a quick line to say my Epic War Hordes Enay auction is about to end... Just wanted to let everyone know becuase this is such a cool once in lifetime find, who ever wins thing it'll be like Christmas (or hannukah) circa '92... Anyways check it here: Smitty.720 Also just wanted to say thanks on this memroial day to all those who have fought, and died for our country... Without you guys I coud not be sitting in safety of my home writing this write now. I may not always agree with our policy or the direction our country goes, but the soldiers who risk it all for us cannot be thanked enough. So cheers to all the warriors out there and cheers to all the warriors that are not with us, I raise my Morning Pint of Beer to You All! Happy Memorial Day Buddys!

++ Epic Score! ++

Hey Buddys,

... Yes pun intended, and by that I mean the other week I was cruising the local-ish mall found an interesting discovery. The mall game store moved its warehouse and brought in a bunch of old and rare games that were still in deep dark recesses of the warehouse. Amongst these items I found this awesome score:

Still sealed, new in box Epic box from the first edition. Man this thing is got all the great and cheese-ball art I grew up on. I have not opened the box and actually think I will plop it on ebay because starting another game system is just not a good idea for me at the moment.

Here's te pics of the box contents... I don't play epic but this seems like a boatload of models, and for multiple armies. I always wished I had this game when it came out but I think this thing should probably just go to a good home that can really appreciate that brand new feel so such an awesome old-skool model kit.

So check my ebay page to make this bad boy your own, and either way I was glad I could share a piece of our hobby's heritage!

+ Cheers Buddys +

++ Robots & Girlys: Part 2 ++

Hello Every-buddy,

Another installment of Buddy Times, excellent!
Above as you can see I have begun putting together the Soda Pop Mini One Shot and Fritz into sub-assemblies for painting. This model for having so manu components and weird pieces actually went together really easily and cleaned up nice and quick.

I went all out on the bases for these guys because they are really more for looking at then for gaming. I always like big bases but I usually try to keep the debris inside the edge of the base...  Not with this chick, her base is B2tWallz!

Here's the little buddy Fritz, I really like this guy and he is tiny.

 Here's the overview of the various sub-assemblies:

the girl herself, one piece

the base

Fritz on his base

The Mecha: Legs, Arm, gun+arm, cockpit

Here's the overview of the dry fit. The long left arm is not attached but overall this is the finished product before paint.

Well overall I think this mini is sweet and a nice kit altogether, a bit pricey for its pettiteness but well worth it for uber-geeks who can appriciate awesome mini-art.

until next time, keep it mellow, buddys

++ Girls and Robots!!! the miniature variety ++

Hello Every-buddy, 
Long time no talk, eh? Well a lot has been on ol' Duder's mind lately (maybe more about that soon), and I thought maybe I'd share some hobby with you all... Actually these are pretty old pictures but I felt like I need to get them out. The subject today is Soda Pop miniatures.
this is one models worth of bits... This is not only a good looking kit but it is a highly complex one as well. There are a lot of little pieces and the completed project on the whole seems like it will be a bit fragile, but the sculpt is amazing.

Here's all the components in laid out in an orderly fashion, with a black reach SM for size comparison reasons. as you can see it is a hybrid metal and resin kit. Actually was surprised it was not all resin, not sure why but the thing dry fits together very nicely so it is not like the old GW plastic and metal hybrids that SUXXed.

 One thing I do have to say about this hobby is the ore expensive and specialized the model the gets the worse the presentation becomes, generally. I know Kingdom Death and a few other put packaging as a priority but think about ForgeWorld and other small scale resin companies, it's like getting a baggy full of tiny pieces... see above for Soda Pop's version of packaging, a couple baggies in a cardboard box with a sticker telling you what the models is.

And here is a final size comparison shot for all y'all.

Overall I have to say this kit was  abit pricey but it looks great and I think it will be  a blast to paint...
Until next time keep the buddy going!
