Re: What`s everyone working on?

Trying to find the box with the remaining bits (or maybe just the bits because I have a habit of chucking kit boxes out when I start a model) for my 1/700 Tarantul & Osa FACs. I've just bought and printed the PDF for Bulldogs Away[1] and it looks to be a pretty good game. I've got two Nanuchkas and ...

Re: Lovely Ferret Scout car from Butlers

The photos used on Butler's website are of the 15mm versions (he does his models in numerous scales from 6mm up to 1/48) and I have to admit that the camera does make the striations look quite pronounced. I've got quite a few of the 20mm models and they're pretty good - nothing that an ordinary coat...

Re: air wars

What level of naval games are you doing at those scales Fairly small/ limited... at least the battles/ actions are, but with two or more tables pushed together to give room to manoeuvre. They (like the campaign and rules) are based around fictional countries with limited budgets. This hasn't stoppe...

Re: air wars

Apart from using 1/72 aircraft on-table for "normal" games I've switched entirely to 1/600 (Tumbling Dice so far but looking at Odzial Izmy (sp?) too). That scale allows a better ground scale and more "realistic" looking ranges. Also sort-of fit with the naval stuff we use (1/600, 1/700, 1/720). Rul...

Re: SiG 15cm from Butlers

Yeah, Armada is the one (but I'd forgotten the name).
I've emailed Butlers and got a "Thank you for the suggestion" note so it may be under consideration.
I can also envisage Trumpeter getting around to it too, but a BPM version would be around 70% of the price :).

Re: SiG 15cm from Butlers

I assume the photo I borrowed from their TMP advert is of one of the bigger scale prints like 20m or 28mm but I cannot be sure. As far as I'm aware all of the photos on the BPM site are of the 15mm version of the model. The quality/ accuracy of the printing is something quite spectacular. I get the...

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...
