so using Simple Green. figure i'll do the first scrubbing later today. just wish the plastic mechs didn't float

Tie a heavy nut to them by a piece of string and floating isn't an issue

eh, it isn't that bad.. it is mostly just the stilt legs, the Unseen marauder was pretty big too.

Maybe so, though my Unseen Marauders aren't half again taller than my Cyclopes. ;)

no, but they do have nearly half again as much volume.. marauders are big, no matter how you cut it.

Good news, I finally have what I need to base my tanks and my battle armor, so I will be able to return to this soon and work on the other lances as well as finishing up the recon and strikers.

and in my excitement over getting the small rectangles of wood i need to base my smaller stuff, i forgot that the weather is well below freezing, and is going to stay that way for several weeks from the forecast. :(

no way i can primer in these conditions.

Brush-on? I'm afraid it's years since I spray primered.

Just make sure it's not too thick - find a brand, add a little water if needed, use a broad brush (1/4"or so).

I have sort of the opposite issue - it's not often too hard to do the matt sealing, but it can often be too wet. My wife is sick of me saying "Looks like good varnishing weather today" ... ;)
