I hate to burst your bubble, but bots probably account for most of that. Every time you post (and you are prolific), you're going to get "views" from every search bot on the internet. The fact that the paint removal thread has that many views without 27 pages of replies is incredible, as bots are generally a "one and done" view. I must admit that the only reason I continue to read your thread is out of a perverse curiosity over whether or not anyone will actually buy your landship. :?:

huh.. well that is bit soul destroying but would explain why there are far more views then replies or comments. maybe I'll stop, I seem to be the only one active in this section most weeks anyway.

as for the hand ship I've been lazy about selling it got too much other work on my desk, the only ones I've really offered it to is miniwar games and I didn't even get a "oh thats cool, too much for us thought thanks" so I guess it will sit for awhile, of course if it sits long enough I'll have to paint it and then the price goes way up.

so thanks to my number one fan Munin, I'm a little crushed, but hard to keep down, we'll see what happens....

and hey wait a minute, if you go back through my whole thread, I've come up with more then a few ideas over the years, to say you only check the thread to see if the landship sold, is ...well. a waste.

Don't take it too hard, this entire forum has slowed down a lot in the last few years. The most prolific posters of yore are pretty quiet now, and the weekly pledge thread is largely the same small handful of folks every week. If it weren't for Nappen's tireless work (even more impressive considering how often he relocates), this entire forum subsection would probably dry up on the vine.

Thats a very nice base! How are you going to cover up the paint on the trim, though? Will it be painted as well?

a dark stain which the client wanted to do himself which is why I wasn't too worried about getting some on the base. I'd even do a black if it were mine.

I personally hate it, too, when such things happen. Though you've shown us soooo many crazy (in terms of size and effort) builds of yours before, no one will doubt you, when you tell us you built another huge project in a short amount of time! :D Though WIP pics are always nice to see a project evolve step by step!

That would surely make for some nice "Kill Team" terrain, wouldn't it? Cool idea and neat execution of it!
