Re: What`s on your workbench?

Richard Yes they have the correct side cap, just my photos are not doing a good job of capturing that detail. CarlL PS an alternative "painting" conversion (may need a little use of knife) is to use the Newline Zulu War range British in 'Glengarry' and cut off the 'tail' of the Glengarry? ...

Re: What`s on your workbench?

Bilk I only bought a few of the British Marine poses from Kennington but I will photo what I have and load them here for you soon. They are primed so this may not help you see detail as its a mid grey primer. I didn't buy any of their / Kennington German East Asia Brigade figures as I had some Germa...

Re: generic northern China buildings including latrine

PS John My painting standard is rather bog standard wargamers stuff (there are images on this website of various projects like Rif) but I like to paint (and I find it quite relaxing and helped me de-stress in days before I retired from work in 2019). I also like to do figure conversions now I have m...

Re: generic northern China buildings including latrine

John Thanks for the comments. I had seen some modular buildings and courtyards by Oshiro (see https://www.oshiromodelterrain.co.uk/ ) and on that designers own website (eg https://jimbibblyblog.blogspot.com/2017/11/yet-another-chinese-building-base.html ) and thought they are great but (1) not cheap...

Re: What`s on your workbench?

Wow guys! Some impressive 'to do' lists (and photo!) to keep you all busy. I have some infantry and support weapons to do for turn of the century (1900+) colonials: two units (12 figures each plus officer bugler / standard bearer as heroic extras) of Russians and HMG on wheeled carriage; a unit of A...

Re: Show Us Your Recycled Toys!

So did you handpaint round those red cross decals or did you cleverly cover with a round 'sticky plaster' (or similar) to spray paint that (?) olive green!!? I shall look forward to end result. I have to say its very inspiring to see what you, David, (and Bilk) get up to on your conversions of basic...

Re: WWII in 1:87 WIP

Hope by "detailing end of the gun barrel" you meant 'forgot to add black dot for barrel depth' otherwise I am getting worried my eyes simply don't see like yours Bilk! (Grant will be telling me I should have gone to specsavers, no doubt!) More great work and not sure how you did it (as not...

Re: Australians

Good work Richard. A squad a day is good going! Like those photos. The garden ones blend those bases with background well! I dont think my backs up to moving my figures around in our garden (which would make good jungle warfare just now with ten days of heat and growth after a period of rain so I co...
