Salute Postponed

http://www.salute.co.uk/salute/salute-2020/ For those interested, it has postponed for 12 months, which sounds a lot like being cancelled but no doubt there will be carry over. Presumably this will be applying to a lot of upcoming shows but as, debatably, the premier show, a matter of particular int...

Re: WW1 Italian Cavalry

I think there were at least colonial cavalry in Italian service during WWII, some surrendering in Libya to OPERATION COMPASS troops as well as East Africa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amedeo_Guillet

As all combatants entered WWI with cavalry I would be amazed if the Italians did not have any.

Korean War

I am planning a Korean War project at the club. My preferred size is 6mm and my normal supplier is Heroics & Ros. H&R have told me that they do not currently have adequately accurate figures for this, for which I would need to use the WWII ranges. Irregular Miniatures do post-war period generic armi...

Re: Tiger I

There are photos Most interesting to see them in 1945. As I understand it, production ceased in June 1944 and given the life expectation of six months I had assumed that all the Bulge Tigers were Tiger IIs and the Tiger I was essentially extinct by then. I was interested to hear an American tanker ...

Tiger I

Does anyone have sources to know if Tiger Is were used after the summer of 1944 when they were present in Normandy? I have seen it claimed that they were used in the Ardennes but I know of no written source that confirms that and I thought that in the Bulge campaign it was only Tiger IIs.

Re: Troop Quality

Many thanks for the comments. Downgrade them one level, so instead of Veteran they are just regular :geek: I think too blunt an approach. I always thought that the Command Decision approach was good. Rating battlefield competence separately to morale. So 7th AD were rated veteran, but with low moral...

Re: Revell Very Late war Panther G.

Very impressive. I am always amazed at what people can do with large models. :o :mrgreen:

I will be sticky to 6mm where I cannot embarrass myself with total painting failure. :oops:
