Re: DUG in Markers

David, great markers but for me the storage volume would soon outweigh the amout used for the models themselves. the great thing is that we never agree so the variety just keeps on going. The other supprising to me contentious issue on another board was in not making them obvious, particularly if th...

Re: What`s everyone working on?

New better stands for my backdrops. New 3D print design, longer and capable of taking overlaps so its more flexible in changing the lengths. It will have a new clip for the top so they look even better. Nothing like a few bacdrops in the middle of a 1/144 board to make life a tactical nighmare.

Re: What`s everyone working on?

I realise I need to print and paint lots more Milan teams in 1/144 and then the worst bit paint them. The BAR had a platoon of 24 fire in g posts to a battalion. That is a lot of Milan even at company level. The only saving grace is with realistic scale figures the detail is minimal.
