Re: 18thC Imaginations uniform books.

For my 18thC Imaginations period, I appear to have gathered figures for WSS, WAS, and SYW, very mostly S/Smiths. Whilst I don't wish to be too historical with them... or maybe I do... I wonder if you fine chaps could recommend any simple generic all encompassing books/sites for uniform references a...

Hmm, I see your point. I'm still a bit miffed that I get nothing extra for weekends & Bank Holidays. They're just another normal day of retirement.
Yeah, it's good though ain't it?

Re: In the service of Altefritzenburg...

Hinchliffe AWI X Range - some of the best Wargames figures ever, I think. And painted to their absolute maximum advantage - you’ve got a very lovely unit there CB. Ahhh yes, the work of the late and great Steve Hezzlewood, a flawed genius, the equal of, (and indeed better than) many of today's figu...

Re: Bare your soul - fess up what's in your lead pile!

After a recent "restructuring" of our garage/my storage and painting area, I have the following*: These five items are for sale if anyone is interested: - Several hundred 2nd Generation Minifigs SYW French and Hanoverians * I'm not sure even this list is exhaustive, but I would point out that quite...

Re: What are people buying?

What I am saying is that the 'instructions' Rich gives are nonsensical Encapsulates my experiences perfectly of trying to read Lardies' rules. Their enduring popularity is a complete mystery to me. I am not known for my love or liking of most sets of wargames rules, as they seem to suck all of the ...

Re: F.E Perry Inspired

Now, a question for those who have fiddled around with big soft soldiers before, will trying to shave off the mould lines do more harm than good? Get a Swann and Morton scalpel and a supply of 10A blades and that will scrape them very effectively, and above all don't forget to wash them first in lu...

Re: F.E Perry Inspired

I gather people are leaning toward the earlier end of this “WWI - 1960” bracket, then? I was thinking of doing the 1940-1960 end of that, as I have loads of stuff already painted and game ready, but I could also cover the 1900-1914 end of it as well, and it wouldn't cost me an extra peso. Although ...

Re: F.E Perry Inspired

Well I'm up for it, I already have the Malabar Scouts, Albion's finest, ready for action, led by the valiant Major Mungo Moncrieffe all painted and ready to take the field in the jungles of Khandibar against the fierce hordes of Sushi.
