Re: Old glory 15s, lancashire games and AB miniatures

OG15 are ok to pad out your armies. Some of the poses are dire. The Brunswickers were awful in terms of sculpting detail. https://napoleonicadventures.blogspot.com/search?q=brunswick Yeah, I only had their mixed artillery/Avant-Garde pack, but they were pretty horrible. The pack mix also meant that...

Re: Old glory 15s, lancashire games and AB miniatures

Still in packs of 50 mixed for OG15s. pahhhh. Saved from myself at last, unless I do it in 28mm... Well that's an improvement, as it used to be packs of 100 (or 30 cavalry). In some ranges the command were packed separately. The OG Russian Cuirassiers and Hussars I'm re-basing at the moment don't h...

Re: Old glory 15s, lancashire games and AB miniatures

I did not think og uk did og15s, that would be a no no and feck off. Thankfully this might be talking me out of this idea. Not any more. OG 15s are a separate company and have been for about 20 years. But they were the same company when I was buying them in the 1990s. It's occurred to me that their...

Re: What are people buying?

If anyone has any of the metal magic Asterix figures, I'd be happy to make an offer. I want to get the Roman's up to a decent sized unit, and I need to find the Pirates for a Cilician ally contingent. I'll try to find them. However, don't hold your breath, as just lately I've been completely unable...

Re: Old glory 15s, lancashire games and AB miniatures

Which reminds me... After that exchange, my mate Jase (he of the Russian Napoleonic army) went back to his stand and bought something worth £20, then offered Copestake a £5 note. When Copestake objected, Jase said "Well they all look the same when they're not coloured in." :thumbs: :clappy:

Re: Old glory 15s, lancashire games and AB miniatures

And don't get me started about OG selling exactly the same figures with different labels on the bag... They sold the Austrian SYW artillery bag additionally as Hanoverian, British and French... I ordered one each of Austrian, Hanoverian and French artillery and got three identical packs. Copestake's...

Re: Old glory 15s, lancashire games and AB miniatures

The [OG] packaging policy is also rather irritating - bags of 100 infantry or 30 cavalry, seemingly filled (in the finest tradition of Airfix) with extraneous figures and poses you can never use. I worked out that once I removed all the inaccurate mitre-wearing SYW Prussian grenadier officers and g...

Re: What are people buying?

Just watched the TooFatLardies livecast about Infamy, Infamy. And remembered I have some of the old Metal Magic Asterix 25mm lurking in the shed. We need special rules for the magic potion. Oh yes... I've got those here somewhere... Probably lurking with the deeply unfashionable Citadel Pygmies... ...
