ummmm,,

ok, so I promised that when I got close to 10,000 views on this thread that I would finish the land ship, but that a couple of weeks ago when we were still in the 7000's, and somehow I checked today and as of this post it's at 9998, how did that happen? either way I'm going to contact my clients who I' working for now and tell them I'm going to take a quick side trip to finish the land ship cause I have everything I need, so next post by me will have the finished, (not painted) land ship.

more to come...

lol, couldn't be my talented bitz bashing?

either way it motivated me to stay up till 3am last night and finish the ship, well 98% of it. now I got to assemble the full company of marines and it's all done, pics up tonight,

YEAHHHHH it's done.

and here's what I've also been working on, got the phone pics sending again, the gold guys and pirates are commission jobs.

Image

Image

Image

this is the start to my next big project.

Image

and this is a guard army I'm starting. the goal is 100 tanks.

Image

Land ship pics tonight got to base the whole thing so it matches.

I'm realizing now that ten pics aren't enough to explain this project in full so I'll have to get more, in the meantime here's basically the final build of the Mourning Spear.

I'll add more pics and the write up once I get a chance to do it. but for now I'll just say I'm glad it's done and here's hoping I can find a buyer cause it takes up far too much room.

here it is with the top taken off.

Image

and here's one to show size, thats a rhino and Raider parked next to it.

more to come...

OK, I'm going to ask the (perhaps) obvious question: why? What circumstance can you foresee that would allow you to field a hundred tanks at once? How often is the circumstance likely to occur? Does the frequency of its occurrence justify the associated expenditure of time and money? Are you buying/assembling/painting that many tanks just so that you have enough of any single variety to cover all your needs for smaller games? Would you perhaps not be better served by purchasing far fewer tanks but taking the time to magnetize or modularize all of the options (main gun, hull weapon, detachable sponsons, etc) such that if you wanted to field 20 Punishers at once (which is still an absurd number of tanks usable only in the context of an Apocalypse game) you could do so?

I mean, it's your money, but excess for the sake of excess itself is not endearing. You could collect and/or paint entire other armies that you might actually use rather than 85 tanks that are going to spend the vast majority of time sitting on a shelf.

lol,

you guys are the first to see the finished landship and the tanks are what you ask about? I do enjoy myself here.

to answer the question of why 100 tanks? those were all good points but I don't even game anymore haven't in over a decade or more but I do like doing all the things I couldn't afford to do as a kid AND, and this is important, thanks to my connections as a commission painter and trader, I very seldom pay full price for anything and that bitz collection was a perfect example,

anyway why 100 tanks?

this is why..

Image

I'm going to build this for my game room, along with the mega fortress I've already started, but when I do this it will be bigger because why would you ever do anything but...

Ah, OK, you're a diorama guy, not a gamer. Got it. Objection withdrawn.

I used to compete in the monthly diorama contest here on mini til they stopped doing it, haven't done any in awhile with the exception of one I'm doing now for a customer.

those tanks I got with reality easy, so now i want to see how many more i can get doing the same thing, I guess we'll find out.

and here's one of the reasons I'm so behind in my work, this is what's left of my airsoft field,

Image

Image

it's a 17 acre field and every single barrel, tire and camo net is on the ground under a few inches of crap.
