Re: Terrain bits

Quality is always good, prices very reasonable and service excellent - what more can one ask :) I bought one of the Scottish MFVs (M... something Fishing Vessel? Motorised? Medium?) and a particularly nice touch was the wooden stick for a mast that came with it. I assume your boats came with one in...

Re: Terrain bits

Nice.
I'm a big fan of Anyscale - I currently have a set of skips and piles of bin bags to finish painting.
The skips will provide cover for troops, the bin bag piles not so much... (but they will be numbered underneath as [possible] IED markers).

Re: air support

The Duster is £9.90, AMX £7.70 and the Tigercat £15 (but that price includes postage, Butlers charges £4 postage on all orders). Tigercat was pricey compared to the other stuff, but, what the heck it looks good. Extracting Tigercat from the supports was easier than I thought it would be, and far eas...

Re: air support

I've currently got a T-28 Fennec to build and paint, along with a Strikemaster, a Douglas A2D Skyshark (a What If replacement for the Skyraider) and a Su-25 Frogfoot - all to be used as loitering COIN aircraft.
Maybe not "ultra modern" as most people see it, but...

John, the only 'highly technical' bit of kit I've seen recently is Carl's mobility scooter...and AFAIK, there isn't a model available in 20mm. :lol:

Re: Ultra modern

What rules are you using to accommodate all of this please It's a home-grown set (dating back, in basics, to the late 1970s). Written as a campaign base where equipment price is based on model price (and countries get a military budget of around £35-£60 per week). Probably needs revamping with the ...

Re: Ultra modern

Er...i was thinking along the lines of radar systems ,counter battery and missile systems ,drones etc... Yep, all of them. Oh and ATGWs in flight - because the rules we use dictate that they hit only after everything else has been resolved (the relatively slow flight time when compared to gun syste...

Re: Ultra modern

Er... what highly technical kit do you mean?
Tanks and aircraft, sure.
I've 3D printed some Claymore markers, got the AA missile systems, AT missile systems, planning on making some ADSID-type (Igloo White) markers, got some small UAVs, some radar systems...

Re: air support

I've used on-table models ever since I started wargaming (despite the lack of any rules for such in Grant's Battle!). And always in 1/72 - because I started as an aircraft modeller and because of the selection available in that scale. Currently about to build a 1/72 Douglas Skyshark[1] (and having c...
