20mm Afrika Korps project

I made good progress on my Afrika Korps project this week. https://4.bp.blogspot.com/-zsoVNpc1NKU/W2gaijBjzfI/AAAAAAAAHLc/ITMsqqhYb6klubBL_WJGUeGAL_DQVdj4wCLcBGAs/s1600/20180806_084253.jpg https://3.bp.blogspot.com/-bVDjCxqJNdc/W2gaiMbrWkI/AAAAAAAAHLY/NfhfaW-gtL4SC7Y05RK6ZxLXJEt4HoqNACLcBGAs/s1600/2...

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 ...

Re: Strelets Turkish Camel Corps

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

That's just it. Standards are getting better all the time, within the bounds of what is visible on the tabletop and can be sculpted/cast/printed. It's all an abstraction given the ground scales most of us play at anyway.

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. In 20mm, I prefer the resin or plastic kits as I think they represent much better value for money and have the edge on the finished model. Assuming you have the choic...

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.

Re: Culture Shock

Sorry, but IMHO you might as well use cardboard counters, or better yet, grains of rice (long grain of course, short grain would only be suitable for 2mm) if you don't need detail, just something the right size. At 1/300 scale, I estimate a human arm (up to 15cm) is only c. 0.5mm thick, so indisting...
