Re: new AB 20mm WW2 Germans from Eureka / AB

I find two things about better sculpts, Richard: They're easier to paint, so even my mediocre efforts look better It's good motivation to work on your painting technique and get the most out of them You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear. So yeah if you only ever paint crappy miniatures you ...

Re: River banks - Post christmas question

I considered that the only ways out would be where the banks were low for some reason. Typically the exit point(s) will be identified and planned well in advance. Nobody does a river crossing seat-of-the-pants. Identifying good entry and exit points will have been done in advance by recce and the c...

Re: Pak 38

Well, there is no "one scale to rule them all". For me the sweet spots for 20th century are at 6mm, 15mm and 28mm. It all depends on the type of game you're playing. People would normally associate 15mm with company and battalion level games while 28mm is the skirmish scale, but my club has been doi...

Re: River banks - Post christmas question

Misleading in that the river is above ground level in cases where it is not supposed to be I think it's a common enough terrain convention that nobody is going to be "misled". Obviously real rivers aren't above ground, but your only alternative is something like Hexon or Terraformer. But as you say...

Re: Modern skirmish

I was getting Hilary Clinton when I painted her, but I can see there's definitely a bit of Frau Dr Merkel in there, too.

Re: 3d modeller saying hello

Agreed, Eduardo if you're reading you might want to look again at your pricing and what models you're offering. Stuff like a Churchill VII tank is pretty widely available and companies like Heroics & Ros will do a more detailed model than yours for £0.55 . I don't think you can compete there, you'll...

Never seen it. To be honest I'm pretty sceptical of "classic" 60s and 70s war movies in general. For every Bridge Too Far there seem to be a dozen Kelly's Heroes or Green Berets.

Modern skirmish

Slipping slightly out of the 20th century brief this one (although I guess some of it would work as 1990s?) I've been on a bit of a push to get some playable scenarios together for Osprey's excellent little tactical espionage game Black Ops. So I put together a few different factions: Mercenaries: h...

Mine has come to: 15mm: 8 Vehicles 28mm: 119 infantry 30 cavalry 3 vehicles 4 buildings Pics of it all here . Bit of a mediocre year really. I've been doing the Vislardica Painting Challenge for the last five years and up until this year I had been getting more donw every year. I think the main thin...
