    So I was pretty patient while waiting for it to arrive to the store. Waiting for the shipment to actually show up on my doorstep is absolute torture.

    Should be here tomorrow, though.

    Mine should be here tomorrow too! Initial estimates had it by Friday, but somehow it's now the 17th.

    I got my box and started cleaning stuff up. Shasvastii are apparently trying to be the kings of "is that flash or is that detail?"

    Lol. Was thinking exactly that just yesterday. Though CB have come a long way since the fiddly old days. It feels like they make progress with every major release.

    The Tuareg from Red Veil was super frustrating and that’s just last year. Still a bit of an alignment problem with two handed grips tho.

    Dude. Not ok. Next you’ll tell me the 90’s is close to 20 years ago!

    Red Veil was before the community started turning Bostria's hair grey!

    Sorry if this has already been listed somewhere, but does anyone have 300pt lists including the units in Wildfire and Beyond Wildfire?

    I really haven't been impressed with the Wildfire set my brother got.

    It didn't include the booklet(not a huge deal for me, but really? someone there managed to not pack in the two player introductory booklet for a two player introductory game box?) and quite a few of the O-12 models seem to have gaps that are just plain unsightly. Gamma was a big one(I'd read about the head not fitting for others, so I removed the crossbar and got it fitting a bit better...but it's still not perfect) as was the female Kappa with pistol and rifle and the Delta.

    For an introductory product? This was just...wow. The previous boxes have been much better.

    Hate to break it to you, but most of the 90s was OVER 20 years ago...

    I had a moment last year, where I was teaching an employee here how to read our blueprints and found out that he was one of my YuGiOh customers back when I still had my college job at a comic book store. That kid now has a wife and kid. Nothing makes you feel the passage of time like other people.

    I'm not calling it a mistake, I'm just saying that advanced alien rifles don't need front sights. I meant to clip them off!

    shasvastii (gwailo lt, book picks sheepskin) and
    O12 but the book doesn't have an lt listed for them so I picked the omega.

    I think you just invented a new calendar era - Before the Bostria's grey era (BBG) and the Bostria's grey era (BG) :laughing:

    Beyond Wildfire contents + surrounding releases. Not really convinced by the prancing O-12 old dude, but Pavel is boss. The Shas assassin girl needs a better paintjob, this isn't Angel for sure. It's mediocrity kills a nice sculpt.

    Great minis but is it just me or those paint jobs are lower quality than usual?

    Yeah, they took on one/more painters besides Giraldez a while back. Looks like the same guy who painted the Defiance characters.
