Sorry, for the delay in getting this order going to Ainsty.
Here we had a few of the guys back out due to a variety of problems.
As for myself, I am currently on an alert notification of a possible post reassignment so I have not made the order as of yet.
I will know for sure whether or not a move will occur until as late as the end of June.
Sorry guys for the additional delay.
Looks like I will be making my own order when I get an opportunity.
I still plan on posting the pics here when the stuff gets here.

Rabid Fox,

Does This Have to do with the Recent Announcement of the Latest Post Closings? If so Do You Have the Kind of Senority/ Job Security to Get Transferred? Good Luck to You and Lady Fox Either Way... And Of Course Post Pics as You Get'em...<Smirk>...

Rabid Fox,

"Lady Fox" goes by "Ragamuffin".
Do not ask; it has to do with a group of nicknames my father-in-law gave his children.
I have never received a straight explanation that made sense; I guess you had to be there.

It does indeed have to do with BRAC 2005.
Where I am currented posted is not on-post or even in the same state, but I am on TDY from a BRAC 2005 targetted facility.
So now, the entire DOD with all its many arms plus all civilians in off-base-reliant businesses, are on pins and needles at the very least, waiting for BRAC 2005 to be resolved.

I have some seniority, but that does not really count for much when it comes to a BRAC closure.
Generals can even lose their "jobs" with BRAC closures and they most certainly have a good bit of seniority.
Due to my skill set and prior MOS I do have some good security that way, but this transition from cold communist national army warfare to warm multi-national non-national-military warfare has left a few folks who hate change out in the cold.
The whole framework of force projection & deployment is changing and there are some brass and their sycophants, who refuse to change, who are the ones who definitely are going to be losing their jobs, pending the cashing out of favors they are owed.
It is folks like these with their sly inuendos and their "unnamed Pentagon sources" that are giving Secretary Rumsfield such a hard time and such bad press.
Fortunately, for the frontline soldier, these brassy lack wits are in their late 50s as far as an age average; in other words, on their way out soon and their sycophants can hopefully be re-trained into useful servicepeople.
Thank goodness!!

My family has gone into partial pack-up mode already just in case MLV.
My wife wants to take advantage of this possible transfer to look for new quarters locally anyway.
At about 600 square feet this house is just a bit too small.
She has her eye on some quarters about twice the size with only a $52 increase in our housing costs.
We will see.

My youngest has only been transferred twice so transfer is still an adventure, but my eldest has a few more under his belt and so it is not looked at as such.
My eldest is just grateful that nothing will truly happen until after school is out here.
So far, he has escaped a mid-school year transfer, unlike myself years ago.
If we suffer from a BRAC closure, I should be able to know fairly quickly and then find transfer to a new assignment by September fairly easily.
My skill set is not overally common, but still quite useful to the DOD in these days of the NEW type of war we have to fight .

I've picked up the cyber bar pieces from Grendel.

I love these accessories, but I am disappointed in how some of the sculpting "merges" into the rest of the piece.

For people who haven't posted pics, what colors have you painted your tabletops?

I'm not a good paintbrush by any standard, and I'm trying to figure out what color scheme to go with. So far I've just painted the gas can and a couple o'bottles of firewater.

I just broke down and placed an order with Anisty, and found out something cool, for the Month of June they are having Free Shipping! (or at least that is what i think the e-mail said

Thanks for your order.

Not sure if you would be interested to the point of changing anything but I am about to release our Base Camp (finally!) and opening up with a June Post Free offer. The twelve packs (value GBP 40.00) will be offered for GBP 28.00 post free to the US

It is in combination with a new line they are doing called base camp, which from the look of it, is one of the reasons i finally bought some stuff. It has a decent bit of Scenery like Tables, the Reception Desk (Base Camp 25 - 2551 - Reception Desk) to me is going to work Straight up as the Detention center consule from the Death Star....

So if you haven't placed an order from them and are thinking about it, you might want to do so in June. While it will have to paint all of the stuff it think it will spruce up the scenry very nicely...

Oh and a Side note, i found out that Armorcast, is closeing down a number of thier lines, so if you liked any of there stuff you might want to get your orders in before they shut down those lines

From the Armorcast Website


Press Release
May 20, 2005

Armorcast will undergo major restructuring over the next few months. We will discontinue all Terraform Battlefield Scenery pieces and a number of Armorcast Vehicles pieces so that we can concentrate on the BattleTech, WarZone and Steamer lines. With the exception of the models listed below, all Armorcast products will be permanently discontinued as of June 30, 2005.

Last Day to Order Discontinued Products: June 30, 2005. Discontinued products orders received after June 30 will not be accepted and will be returned. If you want any Armorcast Terraform Battlefield Scenery products, now would be time to order them.

Retail Sales
We will ship all retail orders placed by the June 30 deadline for the discontinued products. We do expect to get backed up a bit on shipping orders, but rest assured, your order will ship in the order it was received.
Credit cards and money orders will be the only types of payment accepted.
If payment is by credit card, cards will not be charged until the order ships.

Continuing Products: The pieces listed below will remain in production after the June 30 deadline and will be available to wholesale customers at the current discount.

We thank you all for 10 years of supporting Armorcast and hope you will continue to support Armorcast in the future,

Tim DuPertuis and David Garton

That well and truly sucks. I'm going to have to pick um some more armorcast buildings before they run out.

Too bad, really. They make nice stuff.

Yeah, DF is still the drug of choice, but until we get new product, we all need to get our fix somewhere.

Rabid Fox,

Well, Again I Wish you What Ever Sort of Luck might "Help" With These Likely Transitions... As Far as the Changing Face of the Military, that has Been in the Works For So Long, it is Almost a Suprise To See it Really Becoming a Reality... (I Got Out Right Before Gulf One, Right as Some Big Changes Were Coming Down the Pipeline, Got Recalled for that one But Did Not Stay In Long Enough to Really Notice the Changes Myself)... Anyway, Again Luck to you and 'Ragamuffin'...<Chuckle>...

Ghengis Ska,

That Trully Bites I Doubt I will be Making an Order Before the Deadline, But Hey Maybe it will Get Lot's of You Maniacs To Buy it Up and Posted Lovely Painted Terrain Pics enmass...?

Yukon,

Yeah... Main Line the Forge...Ouch!

I cannot believe Tim is going to do this to everyone!
I am going to have to contact him and find out what is going on.
The last time I spoke to him was two moves back so it has been a bit of a while.

I have not bought much ArmorCast to date; there was always something else to buy that had a higher priority.
I always thought I would do it eventually, but that kept staying in the future.
Now, I am not going to have the capital to really hit the order hard.
What really sucks is that with so little warning, I am only going to have $200 that I can re-assign from my gaming budget by the ArmorCast deadline which will only cover most of the plants and water I want to buy.
Just if ArmorCast would move it back a month; I could then go as much as $800.
That still would not touch the ~$1,300 I would like to spend on terrain for me, let alone the additional ~$3,000 I want to spend on structures and more to make a medieval Christmas village for my wife.
Only if I had more time; gee, I have never said that before about ArmorCast terrain before, have I?
HAhaHAhaHA!

Oh well, maybe we and the other gamers we know can all buy enough stuff to get them to move back the deadline.
Some of their stuff looks really cool inside Master Maze terrain.
Maybe we all can buy a bit, put it into our Master Maze, take pics of the displays and then post them here.
Maybe that might get someone to buy the master molds from Tim, if he will not change his mind, and then produce the terrain so we can still put it in DF"s MM.
What say y'all?
