    <p style=”text-align: left;”>We watched part 2 last night hoping for an improvement on part 1. Disappointed.</p>
    I actually laughed out loud at some parts ( the coal fired boiler room on the massive spaceship and using wheels to aim the massive laser cannons).

    I seemed to me like a poor retelling of The Seven Samurai.

    Am I correct in thinking that this is the script that was turned down for the last three Star Wars films?

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Been using Biostrip for a few years now, best thing I have found for stripping metal minis and it does have a pleasant smell. Worth the price, especially if you buy a big container direct from the manufacturer.</p>

    Thanks for all your messages.

    The figures in question are Strelets Housecarls but I’ve also got some Zvezda Vikings and Red Box half orcs.

    I’m going to try the pva then car spray primer on a few to see I that works.

    It seems a lot of effort compared to any other minis I have previously painted but those Red Box Uruks look so good I’m going to persevere with it.

    Now I’ve just got to source some 1/72 scale hobbits……….

    Thanks all for your suggestions, give me something to think about while I prepare and paint my first unit of Rohan Warriors ( Strelets Housecarls of King Harold).

    I have just measured some Caesar 1/72 and they are about 23mm to the eye and 25mm to top of head. Would probably onlt fit 3 to 4 figs on a Warmaster base so maybe I will use some bigger bases, 60mm x 30mm seems a nice size and probably get 6 to 8 figs on them.

    I always liked the Warmaster rules and the army lists would cover most of the troop types with a little tinkering. There are the Battle of Five Armies rules which IIRC were based on Warmaster so maybe I could use some of the stats from there ( wish I would have kept my copy of the game but sold it many years ago).

    This is a project that may never see a game played with them but its nice to have something to aim at. I would really like to have a go at refighting Helms Deep but not sure if my terrain making skills are up to the task.

    Good luck finding those Mike, you may have to remortgage your house.

    Might be cheaper to hire a sculptor and commission your own.

    Great names though,  the happy days when GW had a sense of humour.

    Great work ( only just realised you painted these). I would be very proud of I had done those.

    I really like the caricature sculpts and would really like some WW2 Western Desert Brits and Italians.

    Keep posting more pics

    We sell lots of vintage rulebooks on Ebay.

    Would recommend you check out the completed lisings of each item to get an idea of what they have been selling for and offer the option of sending outside the UK if you can.

    Good luck

    Some nice looking minis there Mike. Would like to see them painted up and based.

    Never played Mordheim as a miniatures game but really enjoyed it on the PlayStation.

    They look really good, love the way you have posed and photographed them. Almost tempted to get some myself after watching Platoon the other night.

    Games Workshop do a pack of 5 clear  bases with stems for £3.15 which would be the easy option if the models have a hole on the underside or you could drill into them.

    Thanks for the advice, looks like it may have to resort to the darkside/Ebooks.

    Hi Ken

    Great work but wondering are the measurements in cm or inches?

    Would there be room in the hull for some wheels and a motor so you can remotely move them?

    Next time you take some photos could you put something in the image to show the scale, maybe a hand or your smiling face?

    Thanks

    <p style=”text-align: left;”>Great models and painting, nice to see some proper Warhammer. Long live the Empire!</p>
    I use Vallejo matt and gloss varnish and have been happy with the results so far but have not tried many other brands.

    I’ll second the Gotrek books, also anything by Dan Abnett.

    I like the Old World, not really a fan of AOS.

    Biostrip.

    Place minis in an empty coffee jar, pour in biostrip to cover, leave for 24 hours then scrub with a nail brush.

    Available in various quantities and can buy direct ( think the company is Fuze) or from Amazon.

    Great photo.

    Had the same issue  a few years ago and lost Photoshop CS2.

    Was recommended a free program called GIMP which I have been isong ever since. Similar to Photoshop and free.
