Re: Periods you always wanted to do.....

....but probably never will. WW1 naval (more Jutland than Coronel/Falklands). The others are all skirmish-level, so all are eminently feasible, except the Inkerman/fog-of-war game because nobody makes British in greatcoats..... http://www.tumblingdiceuk.com/product-category/172/c1854-crimean-war 20...

Have a great weekend Gents. Apologies again and I'll be miserable I'm not there. In flagalation I'll be running hill reps for 6 hours on the coast on Saturday raising money for the local search and rescue service. Which is ominously based near Ayton.

Re: Periods you always wanted to do.....

SYW - a couple of figure batches bought to be sold on again. Just too little time and space and I worry that by the time I've got round to it everyone else will have moved on. I'm betting on pointy sticks these days. Though i keep hovering at the Eagle miniatures stand at shows, he must think I'm a ...

Or sheep droppings. Jeremy, it certainly wasn't yourself & Ken, it was some local smelly stig twat last Sunday, he had to told the error of his ways.

I’m toying with the idea of getting a Char 2c for my WWII Frenchies. It looks splendid and carries ALL THE MACHINEGUNS.
Same. You can get resin or kit versions from Warlord. You've put me off the 105mm gun.

Re: The Pointy Stick thread

I'll assume you're all arriving on the Friday though, so I'll make due arrangement with the local sheep, troll and harpies. Excellent. Duly noted in the over...

Re: What are people buying?

Warlord plastic Russians in winter coats/hats came today. Not quite as good looking as the new US airborne and GI's. All seperate weapons which is a faff.
