Trading in the argoran waste

Well, I had good intentions at the start of the year, but I might have set my release pace a tad high, and found it hard to publish weekly. When you combine that with a dip into console gaming (Zelda’s Breath of the Wild on Switch) and general hobby slowdown, it partly explains the last few months of silence. It’s not that I haven’t done any, but nothing really meaningful, a lot of cleaning and sorting, and also quite a lot of prepping models. I’ll try and go back to post some of the stuff from the gap, but there isn’t that much to show, so it won’t take long.

They have 3 categories: Best Painted Force, Freestyle, and The Painted PreePree. There is no way I’ll have the time to order a force and paint it, so that one I put aside quickly. However, the Freestyle category covers terrain, and I’m always interested in cool terrain projects. The PreePree category covers all their small critters, so I made a small order for some critters and a bigger models that will hopefully get here in time, if Salute didn’t completely drained them of inventory.
