Re: New game set-up

This piece is part of my most successful Ebay purchase ever: Just after we bought the hotel (so 20 yrs ago) I bought a huge job lot on Ebay - the guy was obviously just selling up - literally 1,000s of plastic figures, 50+ models, a box of TSS terrain tiles plus rule books and other hobby stuff inc...

Re: New game set-up

Toto, I don't think we're in Mexico anymore... :lol:

Edit: Richard, I don't know why, but I'm always quite taken with your assortment of ruined forts, temples, etc. I don't recall seeing the one on the headland overlooking the wharf before.

Re: What's on your workbench?

Thanks guys! After a late night painting session the standing figures for the battery are now painted and ready to have bases flocked, and the guns are base coated with Humbrol 67 Tank Grey. Next will be a heavy dry brush with a lighter shade of grey and then detail painting.

Re: Op Hercules - Malta '42

Thanks David. Please send Bob's article. I always enjoy reading his stuff. Lets hold off on the German language article until I see if the gang is really going to commit to this. (If it ends-up being a "go," it will be a Google translation exercise because my German is so far gone I'm cer...

Re: Op Hercules - Malta '42

Bill, I also have a 6-page German language article on Pz.Abt. z.b.V. 66 by Helmut Ritgen and a very detailed 15-page article by Bob Mackenzie on Operation Hercules that I can email if you are interested.

Re: Op Hercules - Malta '42

Here is an excerpt I have from a Martin Block article on the VK1801. I don't remember if I got it from Axis History Forum or from Alan McCoubrey. Unfortunately, it only mentions the Soviet beute panzers in passing. "1./Pz.Abt. z.b.V. 66 Apart from being issued to testing facilities and Panzer R...

Re: Federal spoiler attack - the game

Great game and outstanding AAR as always, Richard! I'm still quite taken with the Tiburon and your "armored" train. Some of the lovely bits of scatter terrain you've used are definitely worth further study for future emulation, too.

Re: WWII in 1:87 WIP

Bill, the Roco Pzkw.III have painted up quite nicely. David, I'll leave the very fine technical details to you experts! As much as I love history, gaming, modeling, and all those interests encompass, I live by the mantra that these are war "games" and give myself a little leeway when appro...

Re: Beute M3 GMC75 Tunisia

Very nice, Richard. By now you should be very close to being able to represent all of the beute M3 variants in Tunisia on a 1:1 basis. :lol:
