Hi folks

Thanks to Ackie's excellent sleuthing and a tip off, I got a supply drop of MAM boots today . So its just inspired me to get my remaining MAM ( bar 2 ) kitted up.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7081

Some spares here if any one spots something they want
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7086

Each units designation will emerge as I sift through my existing kit/spares and start to detail them .

Have got three of these Space Jump suits - a bit left field for the Munrovians , but I'm sure I can figure out a good role for them. The Helmets/cap are Red Devil & British Infantry, I stared to paint up for a homage the 1984 range that got pulled.

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7088

These two will join Lt Ocean's Mortar team. The Mortar is Lanard.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7089

This guy is a bit solo at the moment - possibly a Turbo Copter attack pilot ?
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7090

The next team all use a set of Cammo Lanard Ultra Corp uni's I found on e-bay- so essentially they look a bit like VAM Ground attack ?
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7093

Start of the HMG Sections?
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7095

Command unit
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7096

A couple of troopers
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7097

another Solo - some kind of Urban squaddie?
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7098

still a lot to do but at least I feel like I have Munrovian MAM "under control."

Need to dedicate some time now to the nasty Dragonians   Twisted Evil so we can have that mega set up in the summer Shocked

Any way the basic squad kit is  starting to build.

Got this chap

Maybe a Franken-VAM as that face looks like it should be on a body with grippers.

PostSubject: Testing some garden effects out...   Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 Icon_minitimeSun May 20, 2018 7:00 pm

Hi Guys,
Mrs G has let me have a patch of the garden for VAM - so cleared away the shrubs etc and transplanted elsewhere around the Munrovian "estate". Shocked

So the area is from the shed down to the tree.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7555

Can't move this Honeysuckle but will help blend out the fence..

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7557

Will move this bush eventually...
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7558

I may even be able to take over this area  too ! but baby steps first...

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7559

So started to lay out some 1/6th scale stuff to judge how best to use it...
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7532

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7535

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7533

Yes I know ... will I ever build the strong point ... but I'm taking inspiration from Dean Aka Sam Goldwyn Rusty Gun Cool  and now I have sorted out the garage - I even have a summer workstation to "crack on " from .

Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7534

I've even got the wood - just need to find that cup of motivation...

So my ultimate aim is to install what my US buddies would call a Pondless waterfall . Well actually I want to create a stream that emerges from behind the tree- Action Man and water !- and runs to roughly where the Strong point house is ... but as I said baby steps- I am after all DIY "Challenged" .

So decided to try and replicate some effects I've seen on others posts ... So here is "Near miss for the patrol "

Special Ops Alan Rigby &  Pvt Andy Potter of the 1st Bn  emerge from the undergrowth.
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7549

"Nearly back at base Alan"
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7551

Alan hears something ...
" Andy! Incoming !"Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7550

Kabooom !
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7539
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7538
"Come on lets not dawdle .. that could be just a ranging shot !- Yalla Imshi "
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_7541

Our intrepid pair rush past the shell hole toward the Strongpoint and hopefully safety of the bunker ...

Okay, this is seriously cool! "Real" smoke effects, rather than digital! Love it!

And the cardboard ruined house is a fabulous start! Layer on several different shades of spray paint and it could look quite realistic!

Great action poses with the figures, and their uniforms are impressively detailed!

Looks like a fun summer ahead!

A VAM training ground will be great for the troops and provide some great photo ops too!

...just a shame the Dragonian artillery seem to have it's coordinates plotted..still you can't beat live fire exercises! lol!

Hi folks
I think it was Ackie88 who mentioned in a recent post, "how many figures have you got now?"

Well I've been thinking about my display of the guys in the home office. It needs some work , so grabbing the bull by the horns and start sorting out the display and count 'em up at the same time.

Here its as it as was
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_6583

Here it is as now- Phase 1
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_8783

Sorted out a load of reference books I don't need for other key AM materials .
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_8785Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_8784

Here is the storage area
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_8786

This sofa will have to go and some floor to ceiling shelving is required - phase 2 !
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 IMG_8787


So what about the stock take?

I started with about 20 taken down from the the loft in Xmas 2015- the result if a car boot sale in the mid 80's plus my trusty CH11 .
Gunner Munro's collection.  - Page 9 Fullsizeoutput_501

So excluding the CH11 I have

Vintage[u]
Paint head-3
Fuzz heads-64
EE Hybrids-6
EEBP's- 25
Zargon- 1

Gyper man -3
GI Joe- 1 vintage 5 Modern
30th's - 2
50th- 7

MAM
active service -47
Spares-13

Total 177


Other
Redbox- 1
Tommy Gunn- 2 (1 Zodiac)
Max steel as Dragonians-37
Lanards- 13
21st Century -4
Dragon-9
Chad Valley- 28 ( bought for their uniforms !)
Marx-18
Special Forces-3
Knock off-5- mainly strike force in AM bundles from e-bay
Max steel - spares 5

Total 125

So that adds up to far too much according to my PayPal account  lol!  lol!

Thanks for sharing with us the display of the guys in the home office. It’s really wonderful to see a variety of different figures. The storage area looks nice and tidy. Wow from starting off with with about 20 taken down from the the loft in Xmas 2015 to now owning in total 125. I’m guessing that total will grow over the rest of this year tehe.

Thanks again for sharing Gunner Wink.

Your room is coming along great Steve, the extra shelves (or bookcases0 will really ease the pressure of housing your figures. Also the ceiling malles a great place for keep your airborne stuff, i,e, helicopters, turbo copters and such, (if Mrs GR will let you!) Very Happy . Looking forward to seeing the room and collection grow cheers

125 is an impressive number for 2 1/2 years collecting! cheers

Take no notice of your Paypal account, they sound just like wives!! lol!

As a rule of thumb..if you're still willing to admit the actual figure on an open forum than it's not nearly enough!
