So the way my model is faced for Diamondback Industries(Yellow)its marked firing on its base is to the side of the front of the model.

Anyone else?

Guess I'll contact the manufacturer in hopes of a replacment as this is causing confusion among my group as to where its firing arc should be.

I got the painters edition and the waterside decals the problem is there are no decals for the base which makes it hard to mark is firing arc on the new one. should I go that route.

You made me go double check all of mine, lol. Mine are all correct. Definitely a manufacturing mistake there. You should definitely be able to get a replacement from them for it. I didn't look how they were attached tot he base. It might be possible to change the facing depending on how they did that, but it would likely require breaking the model off and reattaching it. If they are sending you a replacement one though, it might be worth it in the meantime to make it more playable and less of an issue.

Anyone got a hi-rez picture of the Diamondback logo; same one thats on the existing base?

If I can't get a replacement the current plan is to cut it free form the base, remove the decal and air brush a new one on. Just need a good photo of just the logo for that.

It matches the DB dice because the logo on them is upside down compared to the other 4.

You might get away with just painting over the 3 facing "arc" markings and painting the edge of the base yellow where the proper forward arc should be.

Yeah but I paid $200 for these. I would rather they not look like tossed together crap.

So they sent me a questionnaire about getting a replacement I filled it out and haven't heard back yet. That was three weeks ago. Anyone else having issue getting replacement parts?

I contacted them last week and they told me to fill out the form as they would be sending out parts soon.
