    Planning to take the eldest spawn to see it a week from this Friday. Have to wait until then to give ya an opinion.

    I'll probably like it, especially if there is a spaceship or two.

    You know, that reply seems really bitter. "Why the sudden interest" just spins me up. And it's telling that things haven't been restocked in 3-4 years. If you've got a product that can't be bought...

    It'll make me sad if Battlefleet Gothic goes away. I'm enjoying painting little Tau spacecraft.

    Pick a bombshell, and I'll work the same figure. See where we diverge on things. That's if we both settled on the same one, and actually have that one purchased, of course.

    It appears that while hopped up on NyQuil, I can still manage a paint brush. Can't manage a pen ("perle" does not come close to "purple") which is why I managed to paint a bit.

    Sadly, no squee from me either. Wish them the best, however.

    Strange. Such a scifi nut, but never got into the whole flying air/spacecraft robot genre. Just not my flavor.

    I think a second highlight would give a bit more depth and look good. I don't think I'd worry about the large patches on their heads. Just concentrate on the areas already with highlight.
