Re: Raid on Andrevia at WMMS

Lovely terrain guys. Its tempting just to come and see it at Crisis Point. (Remind me when and where is this? Assuming there is space for visitors?) Is the railway track your own construction using model railway tracks or a resin casting you have used as base material? Its something I have been plan...

North African and Middle Eastern terrain anyone?

Ok there are lots (and I mean LOTS) of good quality reasonably priced resin, mdf and other buildings and terrain, out there for the wargamer and model terrain maker, so why would you want a book when you could go direct? Perhaps to inspire you to DIY or adapt some of those existing kits etc? Well if...

Re: German tank repair/recovery and maintenance

Richard
This article provides great information about T&OE for early war German Panzer units, and a brief if concise summary of their methods and function, which may be great for rules writers and scenario building.

Re: TransJorden Frontier Force

Lovely work Richard. Your painting mojo is in full swing. The Arab headdress of the Arab Legion and other Arabic troops, tribal or regular forces (whether in Arab or Turkish or British pay and training), are a challenge; not just to painting skills, but sense of perspective, as up close its like poi...

Re: Home Bargains - train set for 28mm?

Nice find dadlamassu, I have tinkered with similar children's toys to build Russian Civil war armoured train; and Polish army and others had similar trains from 1920s to outbreak of WW2.

Re: John Dowman RIP

Thank you for posting Richard,
and posthumous thanks to panzerman47 (as I knew him) for his many posts and advice and the pleasure of his posts on his model and artwork.
Sad news, reminding us all about the fragility of life.
May his family find peace in their best memories of John Dowman.
RIP

Re: Even more French

Richard As others have noted, its inspirational to see your and others output, and often educational, as I learn about the French Colonial army from your posts for example. Not to worry how many places you post. If some are lucky to see your posts repeated on other sites then they can skip posts. Th...
