    That helps, just seemed a slightly odd omission was all!

    Nice, but as far as I can see, nothing telling me the scale they are meant for.

    Charley Don’t Surf from TFL has it in the game, you can win a military victory but lose a political one, for the same action.

    Probably thin grey card with a printed slate effect on it.

    Signmakers foam board, not the same as the 2 layers of card with foam in between, a much tougher stuff, but with the advantage you can engrave into it.

    Thank you, we are very proud of them.

     

    Drop me an email of what you want and I can sort, what we didn’t want was a stack of 30 orders and moving men putting the stock all over the place.

    Or try O8s 3mm (1/600th) range, excellent vehicles and Infantry and would make good ground markers if the air battles are the key part of the game.

    Ok Triples, have posted elsewhere but will post here as well.

    Traded at Triples, hit target, but seemed to be in the minority with this. But when a Saturday at 2pm is quieter than a normal Sunday afternoon there is a problem. Numbers felt down, the main hall was sparse, with big gaps (we got an extra 6 to 10 foot free) and they still stuck traders in the small hall as well instead of just filling one hall.

    We were ALL packing at 3pm and the hall was basically clear by 4pm, the official closing time.

    Thoughts: the vocal visitors want to go back to the Octagon, which a lot of traders would instantly decline. Sheffield Wargames Society want to keep it a 2 day, which on this years evidence is plain madness. They also want to ‘reclaim’ the old Triples date as the last show before Easter, meaning you now have 3 shows on consecutive weekends within 80 miles of each other. If you have a day job as well, the restock become a logistical issue as well, especially for those with Salute on the Horizon. And the killer blow here, we took slightly more at Triples than WMMS at Wolverhampton. But that slight increase is undercut by overnight accommodation, double the stand price and losing both days of the weekend.

    Next years plan is Hammerhead and WMMS, and not Triples, better return on outlay and frees up another day for restock or you know, life.

    I am trying to raise my profile here, as you might have noticed.

    Actually the other place was great all week, no Tango so just Wargames chat.

    What I would ask is that terrain is added to the sidebar of forums, rather than being hidden in General, as a lot of posts and adverts are fro buildings and terrain.

    Hi, yes that was the idea for terraced, they are actually assembled as the 4 variant fronts I was fiddling with.

     

    Mike, yes they have come out a touch small for modern 6mm, they would work with H&R etc and they are great with the old Epic Space Marine stuff sizewise.

     

    But they are test and fiddle pieces and if I can get them right, then they will be offered for sale through HACME.

    I know from sorting thousands of 6mm that some bad ones can slip through, but always happy to replace them.

    Hi Tim,

     

    well the walls are signmakers foamboard (much sturdier stuff than artists foamboard), the half timber is a fret cut from 1mm card and glued on and the roof is artists mounting board with card tiles.

     

    HACME is me when I am making buildings commercially.

    WW2 has 210 articles in total, splitting it as land, sea and air I could see, but some of the divisions are… odd.

     

    Interesting though.

    2 points, longer posts lead to more hits as it can take 2 or 3 visits to read the whole thing, if you dip in and out.

    Secondly, and far more importantly, they are NOT the Royal Hampshire Regiment, the Royal does not come until the 50’s, and there was much grumbling amongst ex members when it did, along the lines of: 250 years it took them, so why bother now….

    Me, from Hampshire… Yes, why do you ask?

    Most figures ranges are done, because the person involved wants them himself, and then they are offered for sale. Sometimes it is done because of a perceived gap in the market (No one has done X well, and while it may not be my period I can see them selling).

     

    Market research will you people want Bavarian Kettledrummers of the Wart of Jenkins Ear, but they will buy French Napoleonic Infantry.

    Pardon Monsieur.

    Missing the point? I do beg to differ, in your original post you threw your teething toys from your pram in a petulant rant that your precious toys were not being made, but that toys for amusement of others (that were beneath your sneering notice) were.

     

    I have also answered the point of how much money and time would be needed to make your childish whims reality.

    You may take this as rude, sarcastic or beneath your contempt (a place I realise 99.9% of the universe exists). But unless you offer a bankers draft for the said sum, I am done with this thread, and you.

    I am sorry I came over as ‘thin skin and petulant re-activeness’ I was aiming for rude I endeavour to try harder next time.

     

    As to the tone of the reply, may I suggest that inferring that Figures Manufacturers are brain damaged, does not then help your cause when then calling them thin skinned etc.

    As another posted, maybe you would wish to bankroll your niche within a niche, for a range of 12 figures and then say 24 further adaptations from these masters will only set you back in the region of £4,000 and 6 months to a year. If you wish to hand that over, in advance, then your range can be done.

    Setting up a wargames company:

    Do WW2, Imperial Romans or Napoleonics. Everything thing else is niche, the three named periods have the largest buying base (given that you cannot break into the closed shop of GW). Therefore they have the most created for them.

     

    With that logic, Fantasy Napoleonics makes perfect financial sense. Japan other than WW2 is a niche, Gempei period is a niche within a niche.
