You can't see me
« on: 24 August 2022, 19:42:42 »
OK so we have the mini that takes way too much time to get ready for the table top  ::)  ;D  >:D

IWM CE-008 the Null Sig Exterminator

All the work that you have to do for this thing.

I had to glue it to a hex base, fill the base, paint the base and glue down fine ballast and blended turf. last off seal all that down with white glue.

That is a lot of work for this thing  ::)  ;D  :D  >:D

for real this was a fun couple of hours (due to the time needed for things to dry) and will be fun to have on the table.

I thank the crew the IWM for giving us the one  :thumbsup:

No need to that in the natural finish of the mini.


Thanks all

Is it just me, or is it no longer on IWM's site? ???

Been far too long since I went to a con myself... not sure anyone I know personally still goes either.  But I'll definitely ask around, thanks!  :thumbsup:

I love BV Traders, but they haven't had any new stock in a looooong time, sadly.

The concept and execution of this model is great in every respect. Thanks for sharing it. Wish I one to go with the group I have now, but that's not the way life panned out.

Besides, I'm all about the EXT-4A model nowadays, anyway. I just recently learned that it was built on Thermopolis of all places, and not Nanking where I thought it was. A nice bright spot in my day! 
Thought I might get a rocket ride when I was a child.          We are the wild youth, 
But it was a lie, that I told myself                                          Chasing visions of our futures.
When I needed something good.                                            One day we'll reveal the truth,
At 17, I had a better dream; now I'm 33, and it isn't me.        That one will die before he gets there.

But I'd think of something better if I could

This is real, right? This isn't a joke?
Also: is this based on the current plastic Exterminator? or the old metal one?

I own one, although it's much more yellow. The old, small one.

No real deal. IWM brings some to GenCon and Origins.

It is off the older metal figure.
