How did you resolve the lack of match up in gun and gunner?
I just cut the mounting post shorter! The figure comes with the right arm cast with the body and a separate left arm, so just moving the arms wouldn't have been easy. I like easy.

Militia Miniatures Humvee

One I picked up from the recent Kickstarter that Leon was pimping on this forum: https://i2.wp.com/tinyhordes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/05/Humvee-1-300x225.jpg It's a resin and metal kit, good detail and well cast. The only slight issue I had with it was that the gunner's hands didn't match up wel...

Re: SOTCW Future Offer

I think it's good to at least try other rule sets. I disagree that modern sets have lost the "fun" element, I think there is vastly more variety available in rulesets these days, you can choose from a smorgasbord of play styles and levels of crunchiness. Which is great, although there is the problem...

Re: Over & out

In another thread, you suggested a £10 fee for access to fifty articles. I don't think you realise how hard it is to get fifty articles - it's the equivalent of five Journals (issues 91 to 95 had a total of 51 articles). The Society is sitting on a back catalogue of 95 Journals though right? Gettin...

Re: Militia Miniatures - The Bad Guys! Kickstarter live now!

Hi Leon, I backed this KS and picked up some of the "Republican Guard", robots and a humvee. Thought you might like to see them painted. I've painted the guardsmen up not as infantry, but as paramilitary police: https://tinyhordes.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Police-paramilitary-768x576.jpg They'r...

Re: air support

I think it definitely can add something to a scenario. For example: a Cold War Gone Hot delaying action. Having fast air screaming in to lay minefields for your outnumbered defenders, or conduct emergency airstrikes to drop bridges before the Soviet armour get across them? Airborne OPs? Desant/Air C...

Re: A difficult Question - Hedges

15% seems rather high. That would mean you'd expect a company of tanks to be combat ineffective after crossing half a dozen hedges. Tanks are designed specifically to eat hedges and ditches for breakfast. I think they should reduce the rate of movement and allow a defender an opportunistic shot at t...

Re: Ultra modern

About the only Ultra-modern I do is using Osprey's excellent little Black Ops ruleset for small-scale irregular skirmish stuff (lots of spooks and Spec Ops). They do include some rules for EW, and you can hack computers and such. There's scope for deployment by helicopters (and HALO) and the presenc...

Re: air support

To what extent is Air support/anti air used on the table. Do gamers generally treat both like they are off table or do they represent both with kit on the table. Also if kit is used does the figure scale match. I have been using my 1/144th scale aircraft in 20 mm games ,for all the time aircraft ar...
