Re: introducing myself

Ah googling was dismaying. All the hits seemed to be about the ranges no longer being available and your health problems Pier! Hope you are well, or better, and that your models will be available again. It would be fun to see you post photos of your figures (and a free bit of advertising) and think ...

Re: introducing myself

Welcome Pier, aka ITALWARS. You have interesting historical periods in your sights and your research. There must be an article or two there for the Journal, from straight history to gaming or modelling ideas. And you are into a popular modelling scale too. Do you have any favourite figures (or manuf...

Re: 20mm Afrika Korps project

A Pastry brush is a first Andy! Your mix is inspiring oneI shall try if and when I do any Jerries for desert. I think with 20mm I have experimented with inch wide brushes but seem to be more able to get finish I want with half inch wide (1cm) flat brushes. Mind I can sometimes forget brush needs to ...

Re: 20mm Afrika Korps project

Lovely finishes on those vehicles, Andy / sediment.

Are you using washes with dry brushing over the top by brush? Or are they air sprayed / air brushed?

Lovely blend however you did them.

Re: TAG 28mm Taliban, from Badger Games in USA

Pity I didnt see this earlier as they had 20% off at the Battle Group South wargames show at Bovington tank museum in mid July. One show to put in my diary for a post retirement long weekend! I have only made it to Bovington tank musueum twice before and the last time must be nearly ten years ago. C...

TAG 28mm Taliban, from Badger Games in USA

Well, I am not knowledgeable about 28mm scale figures, so while these beautiful "The Assault Group" / TAG figures are new to me, those playing 28mm are probably very familiar with them. Look like they would make great skirmish game figures, with ranges of "freedom fighters" from across the globe and...
