Does anyone have links to or can upload the "Busou Shinki Character Song and Special Radio Rondo" albums? I bought them on Japanese iTunes fucking years ago but I'm too grandpa to work out how to remove the iTunes DRM in order to get the tracks onto my new mp3 player.

Stiletto/Stylet complete. First off, not sure on which name is proper, and second, I would recommend never to pose a FAG much after painting. After adequate curing time, priming, careful moving, there was a lot of scratching going on during the photoshoot since the kit is so tight even after sanding connecting pieces. Still, it was fun to paint a girl figure, and definitely learned I should take it easy on where and how much shading I do on skin.

Is it alright to call it a skirt, if it doesn't even cover notpants?
>>
>>6331728
It's barely a belt.
>>
>>6331722
Yeah, there's so much close proximity with everything in her design, that a lot of paint rubbed off on anything near it. I've posed her just for the photoshoot and now I'm never touching her again.

I'm fine with Stylet having a dirty butt. Sounds like something she'd do.

Not 100%. It's why you should always consider them models rather than toys as they're not meant to be touched much, just how actual scale figures can also have paint rubbing.

Maybe I should be asking this in the plamo thread, but did MSG Overed Manipulators actually get released? I preordered them from HLJ but they aren't available yet. Did they ship from other stores?
>>
>>6331798
Is this why most people only snap +seam weld them, or limited repainting on them at the furthest?

Maybe the secret is not to bother painting the skin parts?

Shinkis have been a dead line since long ago, and the aftermarket prices for some of them doesn't help either, but the main point is that now we don't only collect shinkis, they are not the main core of these generals, we have FAGirls, Megami Devise and more, We need to evolve, I welcome this change of the title of the generals

I got tired of sanding the sides of the faces smooth, so I tried a different cast setup and it's come out just how I like it. the risk with sanding is sometimes it exposes miniature bubbles and I just couldn't stand having any near the face even though the hair would cover them.

the molds aren't too complex. they're really just molded to cut where the face seams end, in case anyone wants to do the same. the pieces are pretty small too, so they don't use up too much silicone. I think I used up a total of 60-80ml's total for all 4.

the most crucial part is I upgraded from the cheap 6 dollar resin packs to smooth-on's 305 smooth cast. the resin seems compatible with the alumilite skin tone dyes too. the slower casting times allows for more time for bubbles to come out.

She looks okish but they are just too big, FAGs are already a bit too big, I don't like that much.
>>
>>6332326
It had heart, and was clearly made by people who love Shinkis. The endcards had the TV staff post photos of their own shinkis wearing cute clothes and shit. FAG anime is just shilling. Entertaining shilling maybe, but still shilling.

Maybe they're both garbage, but the shinki anime stunk less.
>>
>>6332118
I mean, anyone who doesn't know they're Shinkies can ask, so I think you're good. Keep on keepin' on!
>>
>>6332421
Why not just make it a "friends" thread then, a.k.a. mecha musume thread
The point is that its no longer focused to one specific line with a couple others tagging along, its specifically all the lines, the name isn't meant to take away power from any of them, but give them all equal footing (even if its FAGland nowadays)
Plus with the way the OP is set up each line will still show up when searching the catalog
>>
>>6332443
The FAG anime is genuinely, unironically good with good writing, direction and editing and being an advertisement with nested advertisements doesn't stop it being a legit good comedy show.

Opinions are funny like that. For me it's been pretty disappointing with it's annoying characterizations, myriad fetish pandering, and bad CG. It does have some good bits occasionally but it's killed all interest I had in most of the kits, I only hope they don't get around to ruining this >>6332511 like they have for almost every other girl.

Not that guy but the FAGs in the anime have pretty cliche personalities that people either like or hate
>stoic and assertive Gourai
>tsundere and prideful Styko
>genki and playful Base
>sadist lesbo Materia twins
>chuuni Jinrai
>kuudere Architect
>violent and arrogant Hamburger
Only neutral factor is Ao and Bukiko because Ao is the (cute) audience standin and Bukiko mostly gives exposition on plamo meta. Hence, I've come to the conclusion that the only way to watch FAG without dropping it is to watch it for Ao
>>
>>6332645
I understand thank you for your time. I personally don't have any issues with their personalities since we only could imagine ourselves what they'd be like judging from box art alone before the show came around. If anything, I'd say baselard was the most different to wait I had in mind compared to her box art, not to mention colors and face are tweaked in the show, and iirc her re-release kit that'll come with the bd set is going to be the TV version anyways to reflect her newfound personality

It's less them being cliche, and more that they don't really have any history or backstories driving their behavior. That makes sense, given they're all newborns, but it makes them feel one dimensional and flat.

The shinki anime, in contrast, had characters who've been active for years, and the writers put thought into what they had been doing during that time, and how that would shape the people they became. That kind of depth is required to carry a slice of life show.

And that's really the difference. FA:Girls isn't really a slice of life anime - it's a gag show. Which one you wind up liking better will probably come down to which kind of show you prefer.

one potential issue is that not all mecha musume are created equal. someone comes to talk about strike witches or god forbid, Kancolle, how would you feel? renaming FAG and friends would keep the status qou the shinki and friends title always had.

of course it would. unlike FA:G, whom have been commented to have no single "true" interpretation (something about "they could be 15cm tall if you want, they could be 1.5m tall if you want, they could just as easily be 15m tall..."), MDs are explicitly toy robotgirls. their lore is essentially busoushinki's with a new name. hell, their official 4koma comic is the same thing shinkis had for a while - same artist, same setup, essentially the same humans even.

I'm honestly kinda suprised they decided to ape shinkis for the FA:G anime - I guess thumbing their nose at konmai was something they wanted to do sooner rather than later, and since there's somewhat more variation to be had with FA:G designs than what's already available for MDs...

>colored pencil
Well, there's another idea for my experimental Innocentia. Maybe pastel instead but I'm not sure how much I trust myself with a brush. How'd you choose your colors though?
>>
>>6333206

Had a 12 piece set lying around so I just did some trial and error from there.

I've found 2 main techniques : #1 Color on water - wet the surface slightly, then color into the puddle. This dilutes the pencil lead and allows you to cover a larger surface. You can also mix colors with more than one pencil.

#2 Dry color. Just draw directly. Soft coloring blends easier, hard lines stay a bit longer (great for butt folds) . Blend with a q tip, add a tiny bit of water if it's not blending enough.

If you f-up, just wash and clean everything off with a q tip. As long as you laid a good matte surfacer down anything can be fixed pretty easily.

That's just one girl in the show, though. In comparison, Ines, Lene, Clara, and about half the side characters had interesting and unexpected quirks in their personalities that played against their stereotype.

It made very poor use of the setting/premise, and they chose a very strange main cast, since Altlene and Altines were pretty much designed as the new take on Arnval and Strarf. There was such a huge assortment they could have chosen from and they picked two pairs that were already very similar.

I always thought it strange that Arnval MKI was pushed aside to use MKII as the 'original' shinki.

Would have made it more interesting if Ann was an original production run A1 living with a bunch of MMS3 shinki instead, and Hina is still a Strarf MKII.

>>
>>6333823
This triggers me more than it should. Mecha Musume was never meant to literally mean "mechanical daughters" (just like Shinkis were never armored goddess princesses or whatever that actually translates to). It was just a sort of brand for Shimada's girls basically cosplaying with weird military themed gear/accessories. Mecha Shoujo predates and encompasses it but they're not interchangeable either, and neither simply means "robot girls".

If you really want a Mecha Musume General, Figma & AGP Strike Witches and Kantai Collection are the only toys that legitimately qualify. The rest of the lines in the op could get a pass for the stylistic overlap and it still wouldn't be home to every feminine robot toy out there.

The beauty of "Shinkis and Friends" was how it concisely kept the focus on the core concept that binds a handful of niche toys together with a respectful nod to the dead line that started it all.

But that's just one autist's thoughts on it I guess.
>>
>>6334127
How do AGP MS Girls and FAGs not count?
>>
>>6334136
They're based on mobile suits instead of being inspired by real world tanks, planes, or boats. They're still mecha shoujo, just not Mecha Musume. It's like calling any Japanese figure a Figma. Common misusage of a term doesn't change it's meaning. Except it does, eventually, e.g. Kleenex and Bandaids. But I like to pretend we're not at that point yet for the sake of pedantry.

Also works on the hair and faces. Used it for the rouge on Stykko's faces and did some contouring / gradients for the hair parts. Tried to recreate the green to purple of Stykko's anime hair and I think it turned out pretty well.
>>
>>6334518

Thanks mate.
What I love about this technique is that all you need are a matte surfacer (which you should have if you are building these), q tips and a small cheap box of color pencils. No airbrush, cleanup, dry time etc. And it's all easily removable.
>>
>>6334498

Good job, I'm definitely gonna try it.
Did you give it another matte coat after?
>>
>>6334498
>>6334505
so basically this "shading" is just smearing your pencil marks?

kinda like what happened years ago when I tried to panel line a gundam with a rolling-ball pen.
>>
>>6334553
pretty much the same thing as using a shading pigment desu
>>
>>6334545

Once you're certain the look is final, yeah, you need one more coat. Otherwise it'll rub off if your hands are too wet.

>>6334559

Apparently you can use ground pastel chalk, weathering kits etc as well. But pencils give you a lot more control.
>>
>>6334569

I think there are pastel chalk pencils. I used to use them like 8 years ago, but they are expensive if i recall correctly.

Really excellent tutorial! I do recommend when using a matte spray, to give it 24 hours to let it "cure" fully. If you don't wait as long, it won't pick up the color as well. If you're only doing one coat, Dullcote is okay, but if you're working in layers, Dullcote is known to yellow, so Mr. Super Clear Flat/Matte is preferable. And Derwent Watercolor pencils are incredibly magical for this sort of thing.

I'm fine with mecha musume and busou shinki and friends. they both work fine in different ways.

Busou shinki and friends was a classic. its the original and pretty much describes what our focus was - a select niche of robot girls that fit a certain theme - not really "brand name" or a set character. Sure there was a cartoon, but it didn't define the individual shinkies. kinda like nameless little robot girls that you could build from scratch with, which was very different from like if sailor moon came out with an armor version or what gundam is now trying to do with their gundam girls. It was the ability to start from scratch that I felt we really enjoyed. It'd be a shame if we threw that away. FAG, MD, and DA, and Vlockers fit that mold, because they all stem from the busou shinki mold. Part of the appeal was also the niche status or "members only" sort of feeling - that you had to put in a certain evident level of effort to obtain a shinki or showcase a shinki so it became a hobby and not a passing whim. also, flesh tones was a must.

Mecha Musume General is fine too, but it's a compromise and will prob lead to future problems.

How much extra parts does red bunnylard come with? I'm trying to justify the cost as being a regular baselard + a materia/innocentia

Aves Apoxie Sculpt?

It's a model kit, mate. You're a can of spraypaint and primer away from a bunny in whatfuckingever color you want.

Don't be embarrassed! I mean, it'd honestly be worth sending him an email. You said you lived in Europe?

I remember you saying you were also embarrassed about what happened, but short of actually melting the piece in some way, it should be fixable. Would you mind posting pics of what happened, or even just describing it in detail?
>>
>>6334327
Don't know what you mean by 'vehicles', girl Baselard and Hamburger are based on regular Frame Arm bots of the same name, with exo suits of the aforementioned robots as their armor.

A baselard is a type of sword, and Hresvelgr is a Norse(?) devourer god that can turn into an eagle.

I guess you could custom cars of them, though.

Bingo, Frame Arms Girls and friends I feel could also do fine, just not FAGs and Friends that is ASKING for trouble. Mecha Musume is gonna lead to trouble later on when we start getting swamped by not only things that don't really fit the same niche focus as Shinkis and FAGs but as others have pointed out, those who don't even fully comprehend what a mecha musume is.

That sound even more horrifying.
Likely not something that will go well if I'd try it.

This board should have spoilers for these grotesque guro stories, but here goes:
I didn't have sandpaper, but AnOn told that microfiber cloth could work.
At first it did nothing, but then suddenly it caused something that looks like it melt.
I put it all back together, but later I decided to try something again.
When disassembing, a corner of the part suddenly bend, though it bend right back it left a mark. Looks like the microfibering made that corner thinner.

Just as long as the core of these threads isn't lost. We're fags who buy dresses and 1/12 accessories for tiny robot girls. If it can't do that, it doesn't belong in this thread.

Has anyone tried using bandai HGBC on their FAGs? Do they use the same 3mm holes?

>buy dresses and 1/12 accessories for tiny robot girls
>If it can't do that, it doesn't belong in this thread.

That is the core of the reason why some seem concerned over a broad word like Mecha Musume. It's more then just girl figures/models with mech/vehicle stuff slapped on top of them like armor. One thing I noticed over the years is the number of people who collected Shinkis were also Transformers collectors, so perhaps there is an overlap in appeal with the armor aspect?

Yeah I definitely need to find a way to get those files onto this device in the future before posting.

Apologies for the fucking flash. The build booster was too loose for the peg holes on stylet's charging port. I had to put on a few layers of plastic cement on the connection on the build booster before there was any friction.

Sorry if this is common knowledge, but I used to frequent the threads a while back and I remember an Eastern model maker who did very lewd but good female mecha models.

I think it's a pretty reasonable thing to be upset over, especially now that a third of the thread is just repeating things found in the gunpla general and another third is talking about an anime instead of toys.

>>6336148
and I think you're doing that "omg change = bad" thing over the fact someone tried to be reasonable about the fact that shinkis have basically nothing left to talk about and even the shinkibros with huge collections hardly post about them anymore, yet there's -several- product lines that have come up aimed directly at the market shinkis were aimed at, up to and including a line that's made by almost all of the same people as busou shinki that's essentially busou shinki with the konami trademark filed off (megami device, remember them?) that people ARE talking about now.

I'd not be suprised if you were one of the people crying against the idea of allowing discussion of FA girls, MDs, etc in here back before the lines actually got launched.


yeah, people are fagging about the fag show. they fagged about the shinki show when it happened, and even filled up with hope that konmai would stop being faggots and relaunch the line to cruise on the attention the show generated... to no avail. do you have any particular point?
and yes, repeating stuff from the gunpla general that applies to what's relevant here is not terribly suprising. what, do you want half the thread to be comprised entirely of links to posts over there?

Had to balance her since her custom frame is using the spare upper torso from Gourai/Architect and the ABS joint housing gets loose after a while.

... Should have outfitted her with Innocentia's upper torso with the better joint housing.

I been one of those who wanted it to eitherremain BS and Friends or be FAGs and friends instead of Mecha Musume general, but your complaints are silly. Of course we gonna discuss the anime like we did with the shinki anime, and it's not like there is already a precedent for overlap between generals before. Hell Friggin gunpla is a dual board thread.

>>6336106

I wanted to get a Shinki to see what they were like, so I found what I thought was the cheapest one, and like a moron, bought it without further research. Now I have a box of Shinki parts and accessories and nothing to do with them.

Because that would make you the obstinate so autistic he is blind to others one. Unfortunately we would be the ones seen as the most autistic to screech on and on about it. Personally I wish all these name changing crap could have waited til the next wonfes. Once we see if those shinkis are still in limbo after all this time or got a prgress to revival then we could have made a final decision

Koto JP was honestly extremely helpful with the whole situation, I didn't have to pay shipping or anything. Unless you're from a country with crazy import limits and something like this happens, it should be pretty easy to get a new runner if the problem is on them.

I've built a near-armada of girls and haven't had anything else like that happen to me, closest thing was a piece that was kind of bent from being pulled out of the mold, but still attached to the runner.

So they can sell you Inno-Gourai to stick the armor on later. Or so you buy the Inno-Gourai set to stick the Gourai-kai pieces on, of course.
