Here is my public facebook album

http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=2 ... d4b142feb3

Starting about pic 14 or so is the frankenmech.

Little background. Our resident commando contracted me to paint about a dozen battletech mechs (including the limited edition 3085 lancepack), perhaps a half dozen CAV figures ONTO battletech hexes, a battalion worth of trucks, and maybe a company worth of micro armor WWII SPG's. Out of all the stuff, some of the micro armor was missing the dinky in-scale 37mm guns, the Scylla had a REALLY miscast torso, and I either LOST the thunderbolts right leg, or it was never in the blister to begin with.

Contacted IWM, and within 24 hours I got a response from not one BUT TWO people there. After contacting the SECOND peros to make sure I wasn't cheating them into sending me free spares, I was able to confirm that the Scylla torso was being replaced. So now I had a free Scallya torso with pre-existing "battle damage".

BONUS!

Figured I never had any really brutalized mechs on the table, so I'd make one. I have NO IDEA what other clickytech parts I used, since my bin is entirely made up of PARTS... But I like what I did there.

Check out the pics and tell me what you think so far...

Oh and feel free to friend me on FB if you guys want... just PM me so I know who you are lol!

Just want to shout out to IWM too, those guys are fast, courteous and AWESOME. I personally know of people who cast their own minis and REFUSE to buy from them because I support IWM. (Unseen stuff however I might make an exception for)
