More shipping and Resin updates!

 (for some odd reason, I love this picture)

I think I am getting the glitches worked out in the system so that when your order is shipped, its an automatic email instead of the current method that seems to work randomly at best. In the mean time, if anyone has not gotten your order, or a notification that it was shipped, feel free to email me for an update.

Please be aware that current time from order place until order shipped is 7 days on average and sometimes as many as 10. If you placed an order before that time frame has passed, it most likely means your order has not be cast yet.

Onto resin updates and the resuming of casting. The order was to arrive yesterday but didn't Its new scheduled delivery is for tomorrow. All orders placed in the last 12 or so days will be fully cast by the end of the week.

The TS7-A "Robot" will be complete and ready for casting by next friday. I am going to wait until then to do a mass release of the pictures of it (and there will be many) as I will be limiting the entire release of them to 25 kits. That's right, only 25, 8 inch tall "Robots" that will work very well as a certain hard to find kit(s).

The true scale kits are nearing the last few. I know it has been said before, but to make a long story short, there are 2 full kits left and a hand full of torso/leg combo kits left. I do not plan to remake the molds unless demand was high enough. Frankly, they are tough on molds as they are not as "plain" as they appear in some pictures.

More updates soon.

40k True Scale - Tired of wondering how big they are?

This all started over several forums where people keep claiming marines are 7 feet tall and how terminator armor is only slightly bigger.

It all boils down to, when people use plastic terminators to convert into true scale power armor marines, they then need to upscale the terminators. Ive been told by a few mine are to big. Well, here is more then enough GW picture evidence to prove otherwise.

Most Recent Art showing scale.(not even 3 years old at most)

Then this, from about 5 years ago.

And finally the picture (from the early 90's when GW models were tiny) that people fail to see, that was drawn when marines were tiny. 15 years of size expansion shows a lot. Look at the most recent art above. That power armor marine is at least 8-9 feet. And he isnt even in heavy armor.

Read the new fluff people, and not just BL stuff.

Also down to the last kits for them. So if you want them, act now.  

If by chance there are enough requests worth making another mold for a few more sets, email me direct. If we get enough people together, ill go ahead and do it. I however would need at least a handful of people to make it worth considering.

Shipping Updates and Resin Orders

The demand has actually out weighed over 2 gallons of resin. I have ordered more and it should be arriving this week. All remaining orders will need this batch of resin as the jugs are literally empty. I simply did not expect such a high demand in such a short time frame.

There is a plus side.

All orders that are delayed until the weekend when the resin arrives, will receive a free sample from the next, and as of yet, un-announced kit. (more news on that in a future post)

If anyone has any direct questions regarding their order, future orders or just want to shoot the breeze, I can always be reached via email, located to the right of this post (or the top right of the website once this post moves down)

True Scale Space Crusader Heavy Armor 5 man Upgrade Kit as it Ships

Ive been meaning to take this picture and post it for awhile now but the demand has been so high, all my time has gone into casting and my actual day job.

Without further adu, I preset the True Scale Heavy Armor upgrade kit as it looks when shipping.

 (no flash)

 (with flash)

Tomorrow ill post picture of the shoulder pads but since they can be seen below, painted by a customer, it seemed redundant.

In total there are less then 8 full kits and a hand full of partial kits such as just the legs and torso. If you want a chance at these, now is the time to act before they are OOP for good. They can be found in the TSS store, here.

First pictures in of a painted True Scale Heavy Armor upgrade!

*The demand for these has been high and with that, the molds are nearing the end of their life. I realistically see them only making a few more sets. There are no plans to remake the molds.*

I just got in the first pictures of a complete upgrade set. It was painted by one of the first customers and I'm happy he chose to share it with me. It is using other companies arms and head but is using the TSS torso, legs and shoulder pads. He said it was for his pre-heresy Iron Warriors army.


I just got in this additional picture showing him with some models for scale. Please keep in mind those models are in full motion poses thus lowering the height as well as being on blank bases, even lowering the height further. Maybe not the best picture for scale but it should help.

Now lets see everyone elses! Id really like to set up a gallery of various peoples uses for the set.

Back to work on the TS7-A robot!

True Scale Space Crusader Heavy Armor has beun shipping!

That's right! For those that made the pre order, the kits have begun shipping! I will be 100% caught up on every single pre order by the end of this weekend. Anyone who has placed an order since the release date earlier this week will have their kits sent out starting Monday once the pre sales are shipped.

The True Scale Crusader Heavy Armor can be found for sale here.

The track units have also begun shipping for the pre orders as well. Regular sales for it are on hold until this coming Tuesday as the true scale kits have taken priority.

Ive gone ahead and included a picture to show the assembled True Scale kits as well as the scale compared to a heroic 28mm model. Also pictured are parts that can be used with the kit.

The True Scale Crusader Heavy Armor can be found for sale here.

TS7-A Crusader Robot Shoulder Pad Design Discussion

I've come back to the TS7 and decided before release, to change the shoulder pad design. I know it will be hard to give opinions without seeing it on the Robot itself but I'm hoping with the size clearly shown, and your trust that the overall shape will fit the design, we can deck this pad out to its maximum potential.

To that end, I'm asking for peoples feedback, design ideas/changes or anything in between on this large scale Robot shoulder pad. I just feel the pad right now is missing something. I do plan to add hanging connected cables from under the pad but the way I'm casting it, ill need to have that as a separate bit people can chose to add on when building the kit itself.

                                                    (gaps need filling but I generally do that last.)

Good? Bad? Ugly? I'm open to it all! Well, don't be to mean on me..

TS4-A Masters in prep for release today.

Also in prep for the actual TS4-A release/start of shipping date today, here are the master TS4-A parts before spruing and casting. Ive been so focused on getting the molds done on time, and design for future items I've been neglecting getting pictures up. I also will have painted display models up on the store in the next week or 2. Ive had samples sent out to a few leading painters from the web.

Over the next few weeks I will be releasing 'sister' units as well as alternate heads, torsos and arms so that people can make unique squads.

The kit comes with:
2x Tracks
1x Lower Track Body
1x Optional Front Armor Plate
1x True Scale Heavy Armor Torso
1x Helmeted Head
2x Shoulder Pads
1x Power Ram
1x Power Claw

You can now find it on sale in the TSS store.
