Biiiiig Purchase *Pics Added!*

Postby combatdroid113 » Tue Oct 03, 2006 12:12 pm

ok i am now buying all the fleet boxes (cept for the shadows and the vorlons) and im having difficulty. Even with fleet reinforcment packs imusually 1 or two ships away from making a 10 point battle fleet. Currently im wracking my brain with Centauri and am having no luck what so ever

i have 1 Fleet box and 1 reinforcment box im also working towards my Minbari and Narn only i have avoided the pitfall there with buying an extra sharlin and an extra G'qarn to go with them. will i have to buy extra stuff for all the fleets? I have looked at a site ascii i think its name was and they only have the fleet packs and no reinforce.


Also what do i use for breaching pods?

Why not the Shadows and Vorlons? Poor squiddies.

Wow, I am not alone. I am in the process of doing the same thing, only I already have the Vorlons. The Shadows are next on the list, just need to sell more plasma. LOL.

That is a BIG (damn... can't get it any bigger) purchase alright... something I know my wallet (and heart) could never handle. Knowing that I spent well over $500 on modles would probably put me in a coma.

Mongoose, any chance for some kind of discount? I mean, the guy is buying your entire stock...

Well, best of luck, and unlike LBH, please try and PAINT the ships you get. It's insulting to the rest of us that CAN'T afford them for all those beautiful models to sit unpianted and sometimes unassembled :roll: .

We still love you LBH... kinda. :lol:

Holy crap...

I got mine about a week ago, and after some serious hardware issues, only have the cruisers and 2 Vorchans together. The other vorchans I need a file for and the fighters won't be together till I can paint them on the sprue...

I haven't even thought of painting them cause I need to get some base coat spray...

Jeez, I could learn a few things from you.

Can't wait to see the pictures.

Well I've bought 5 fleet boxes plus, a lot of demo credit, some cash and some rebates, I've easily spent more than 500 of your US dollars.

Only one (or, at least, one pack) of each though.

And they do Fleet Action deals too...

Well, if you spent $500 of MY money I would gut you like fish... :lol:

I have spent (maybe) $200 (and that is a liberal estimate). I freak out if I spend more...

Less than 4 hours to go... thought I would update evryone... :roll: 8)

Dude, those are some nice Centauri models. Welcome to the Republic... :wink:

You should post these on GT if you didn't already. Will cheer Marquis up to see B5 stuff when he gets back.
