That company’s customer service is Olympic gold standard.
That would make excellent cornfields.
Live horses with undead riders; unexpected. But super paint job.
Regrettably, I don’t need to throw battles to allow her to taste the sweet fruits of victory; she’s quite capable of clobbering me despite my best efforts.
How about LAF? https://leadadventureforum.com/index.php?topic=132390.0
https://www.facebook.com/groups/207029437080775 – today’s battle. Piccies.
Especially if the opposition are still in column when you hit them! Anyway, the Better Half demands a rematch this afternoon.
I was having a little trouble posting – I’m more used to LAF and the Pendraken forum – but there’s not much to tell. My wife, commanding the British, got wrong-footed coming on in column, and unhindered by artillery my Abyssinians closed fast and broke through in two rounds. Next time will doubtless be much harder.
It’s just so irksome to anyone who know even a scrap of history to see the word so misapplied. It was very much a western European movement, and very few of its attributes apply to Sengoku Japan, the late Vijjayanagar empire, or the Triple Alliance (meaning no disrespect to the first two).
Their stuff’s good.
Not sure any of those would have any claim to being renaissance! But as far as I remember from the days when I played DBR, the idea was that most shooting was probably at pretty close range anyway (which is not to ignore WRG’s signature attitude of “If the rules don’t match reality, reality is at fault.”).
What did you love pouring over Lovecraft’s books? Tea? Kool-Aid? Unhallowed ichor?
Don’t trust Hollywood; they seldom come anywhere near reality. We don’t know everything, but there’s enough evidence to do far better than California usually offers.
Reminds me of a student who forgot an exam, submitted a fake medical certificate, was granted an aegrot, then came to me a few days later to confess and demand she fail. She was a good student so I told her to keep quiet about it, but she insisted. Referred to the prof, who agree she was a naughty girl but also suggested she keep the whole thing under her hat. She wouldn’t play ball, and had to repeat the year.
As a more agreeable variant on “name and shame”, what about a board specifically devoted to naming companies that have impressed us with good service?
Phew. That book had the rare distinction of being the only one I have ever given away on the same day I bought it!
Good work. Now make a range of 10mm Tang Chinese for us and go into commercial production!
I’ve had good success using Sharpies (felt-tip pens) to do the sort of detailed work you mention, but only with black, dark blue, and scarlet. Green was a disaster, bleeding into other colours and even through the repeated repaint jobs I did; it took ages to repair the damage there. But I do all my belts and reins with black pens these days, and use the blue and red freely on lighter colours for fancy garments or shields.
I’m very much a 10mm gamer, btw.
I bought a custom-sized (four foot by eight) double-sided mat in mousepad rubber from them about a year ago. I was very satisfied with every stage of our relations – they were pretty prompt about sending it, the appearance is excellent, it’s pleasant to the touch, and boulder-strewn meadow grass on one side, semi-desert on the other is perfect for my needs. Although I missed a special promotion deal offering a free strip of printed river, they were kind enough to send me one anyway. I found them courteous and helpful at all stages. My order had to get from the UK to Thailand, by the way.
They have a Facebook page, so you could get more info there, I’m sure, but I certainly recommend them.
Lovely spectacle and a super era. I’ll never learn to love those dice and markers, I fear.
Brilliant stuff, as ever! And, yes, I was expecting a half constructed palace model
You weren’t the only one! But good modelling (now that the shock has worn off).10/12/2020 at 03:33 in reply to: 1/3000 ships – paint them base or base then paint? #148106
I use method 2, seems less hassle to me, but then I don’t normally texture the base for ships smaller than 6mm scale.. YMMV!
Stop evading and show us the 1:4800 dinkies!
Mr King has limited talent with language, but he did open the way for one of the greatest movies ever.
I used to have 6mm Achaemenids, mainly Heroics and Ros; liked them very much, though 10mm has long won my heart. But be warned about a few things that discouraged me with Irregulars: some things I’ve ordered have failed to arrive, as have the promised replacements, the figures come in inconvenient groups on heavy bases, and detail leaves much to be desired. In 10mm, their stuff often has flimsy ankles and tiny heads, and very much higher prices than better figures from other companies, so for me they’re very much a last resort.
Nifty, Sir, nifty.
Those Kallistra pikemen are pretty solid little figures. Looks good. 🙂
Thanks Alexander. I like the two sides idea.
Invaluable. Meadow on one side, semi-desert on the other; there I am, sorted out for everything except naval.
Got a two-sided Tiny Wargames neoprene mat a few months ago – it’s demanding to pack away, but otherwise I’m enchanted with it. I must point out that I use seperate hills of plaster and plywood, however, which I lay on top of the mat.
Had they but existed….
Is there evidence for armoured heavy cavalry with spear and shield on the same horse? Heaven knows, my Assyrian horse could use the protection!
I’ve just ordered a trio of those Mk IVs, as it happens.
The One True Scale!
Irregular Miniatures aren’t my favourite company, but they do make an attactive set of 6mm druids on the job.
A watchpoint that’s emerged, btw: it might be important to stir, not shake, the flocking martini. Shaking aerates it, and there appears to be a danger of its going all viscous and jellied.
Thanks for friendly comment. 🙂
Those look like ashigaru, not samurai. Not sure what they’re doing on the ancients page.
Same battle recently on my side of the world. My wife has become rather fond of leading the Huns, having worked out what a deadly army they are.
When there’s solid evidence about shield faces, it usually indicates designs. I really don’t find it easy to believe the plain shields idea (I admit I don’t want to believe it either).
I’d certainly see nothing odd in veteran regular troops. What distinction are you drawing?
How about some 1) conquest of Mexico; and 2) imperial Chinese stuff?
