Re: 20mm Afrika Korps project

Thanks Carl. It's all brushwork. I used to use a cheapo, entry-level airbrush, but it packed in, so I upgraded to a Harder and Steinbeck, but I just can't seem to make it work for me. That is, it works, but I don't like using it. So they are all base coated by brush, washed with Agrax Earthshade and...

Re: activity

As we are all supposed to be wargamers, how about the society, via the forum, contributes by organising 20th Century themed games events? There are quite a few groups that already do this quite successfully for a variety of periods and scales. Maybe some attractive display games at shows could come ...

Yes, they are already on my wish list, especially the various WW1 vintage camelry and the 8th Army heavy weapons.

Re: new Jagdpanzer IV from Butler in various scales

I think their 15mm range is great value and have used them for some extras for my cold war Brits and would definitely use them again.

Re: new Jagdpanzer IV from Butler in various scales

The 20mm Britannia/Grubby version is quite nice, with both the L48 and L70 barrels supplied, for a comparable price. A little bit chunkier than the Matchbox version, which is 1/76 scale IIRC - I've got one of them as the L70 version.
