You shouldn't skimp on shoes for them. I suppose you made them walk to NZ too?

I'm still hoping to see the next phase of the Flags of War 1745 Kickstarters... I want some Irish troops, British Grenadiers reloading and Bagots Hussars. But the FoW site has been down for 'maintenance' for a week or so... :(

On the bright side, packages arrived from Warlord and Rubicon, so I am not short of things to be assembling and painting.

I did, and an early mark panzer III. Wondering which to build first. Probably the Comet.

Scratch that, not a question any more. I did build the Comet, more or less out of the box.

I did a few minor cosmetic things like separate out the rear wheel runs, drill out the lights and shackles. I'm intending to also replace the plastic brush guards with wire, and I'm thinking of doing the same with a few of the engine deck panel handles too.

At the moment though, I just want to find some contemporary pictures to get some ideas for stowage.

Linky? I can’t see it and I really need to spend more money on more medievals to store in more boxes with the promise ‘one day’!

I don’t think it’s out yet. Paul Hicks put something on twitter saying it’s going to happen but no links

Ah, that explains why I can’t find anything.
I’m planning to use Paddy Griffiths ‘Aquitaine’ board game as a campaign setting, technically it’s 1350’s but would backdate to the 1200’s without difficulty. Except my unpainted 1350 stuff is Claymore/Essex and my unpainted 1200 stuff is Footsore/1st Corps and there’s a bit of a size difference and I can’t make up my mind.
I know :D I’ll do both :lol:
