Re: Sherman tanks from Butlers Printed Models

It would be nice if they told you what scale the pics were of. Most of the ones I've paid attention to (admittedly post-war stuff) state that the photo is of the 15mm version. I've got a few of BPM's 20mm vehicles and I'm well pleased with them. Certainly they could be better detailed (less striati...

Re: Air Combat Rules

If neither of these are to be commended what better set of rules is there? Ah, recommended (or not)... I will admit being a very picky little s*d and a long time aviation geek so my objections are purely my objections. Air War C21 gets some good reviews (although so does CY6!). From memory some of ...

Re: Air Combat Rules

After thinking about it I'm fairly sure that the top speed was about 12 hexes. But my point is that that's the limit for all aircraft. Anything at (I didn't do any calculations) about 600 kt is doing 12 hexes. There's no way, under those rules, that a Mach 2.5 plane could disengage from the fight an...

Re: Air Combat Rules

I'm not particularly enamoured of either set, but for different reasons. CY6 (Jet Age) limits all aircraft to a given absolute maximum speed (around 6 hexes from memory - it may be more), slower types may have a max of less than 6, i.e. there's absolutely no provision whatsoever for an aircraft to c...

Re: What`s on the work bench?

Got my Butlers Printed Models AMX VTTs to paint up and add stowage to, and seriously contemplating lashing out fifteen quid for one of these: https://static1.squarespace.com/static/5af6cc663917ee712843772e/5af6cc896d2a736d3c691339/5af6f32f6d2a736d3c6c519c/1526133571259/tigercat-v1_000.jpg?format=100...

Re: Kangaroo look-a-likes from left overs

They won't be so much "recce" per se as "vehicles available to "third world" powers that are all they can afford". Mostly as hand-me-down Stuarts that have been kept in service well beyond their "sell by date" and adapted for other duties. I can imagine any armoured vehicle with a 50 cal being usefu...

Re: Kangaroo look-a-likes from left overs

The good news: I think what you've done is excellent.
The bad news: having seen the photos I'm now tempted to spend money buying some PSC Stuarts because your vehicles would be a brilliant fit for my fictional Latin American forces.
