They have a recieve date in March. :-D

I have ordered many FSS resin kits from these guys, and they have been great! Quality is always top notch!

They have also had a Cibo kit that looks Amazing! They usually restock kits a couple times a year.

Did a search, not hard to find :-D

Company Website: http://www.e2046.com/

Cibo: http://www.e2046.com/product_info.php?products_id=8389
Sanakan: http://www.e2046.com/product_info.php?products_id=8949

Note: For anyone not familiar with garage kits, they come completely unassembled and unpainted. That company seems to do painted stuff as well. I have yet to actually get one such kit, but I have a feeling these will be my first.

Edit: looking at the picture of Cibo's pieces, it looks like that is a rather advanced kit. So many tubes!

Those look awesomely fun. Aside from doing the eyes I don't think painting them would be too hard. Then again I paint 40K minis :D

Just placed my order for Sanakan, hope to order Cibo next month (trying to stay on something of a budget). I'm also a tabletop gamer like ShakKen, but as I understand the tool of the trade for garage kits is first and foremost the airbrush rather than a traditional brush. I'm gonna stick with what I know though, I've never been one for perfectly smooth blends and subtle contrast.

I'll post some pictures once I complete the figure, but May is quite a long way off.

You wouldn't get as smooth a result or transitions without an airbrush but I think for a Blame! model the blotchier look of short brush strokes/drybrushing would suit it better.

It's possible to come pretty close but it takes a lot of effort and time. I agree with you though, a rougher approach would work better on a BLAME! figure.

Also, seems like the hobby tends to prefer a subtler approach to shading than miniature painting. Much less contrast with the actual lighting on the figure providing the shading, which is possible due to the scale. This'll be an experiment for sure.
