    Photos of all the products. I hate buying blind when just a reference is posted and no photos.

    I also buy with good painted models. I have bought nearly all the superheroes  range of Knight Models just for the first paintjobs I saw. Similarily I have avoided Dixon in the past because they show very mediocre paintjobs of their minis and few photos, I had to buy a few minis I needed to find they were not as bad as I thought.

    Definitely West End Games Star Wars miniatures, and 25mm Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (can’t remember offhand who made the turtles). In historical, I feel well-served with the ranges available today.

     

    WEG Star Wars too. I still nedd some more stormtroopers.

    I’m deeply sorry to hear this news. He has a very knowledgeable and helpful comrade.   I will miss him.

     

    Rest in peace, Allen.

    The majority of the trees I have were from an old company I believe now extint, I think it was german, don’t remember its name (zeit- or zit- something). But look like Sequoias for the 15mm.

    Thank you very much ExtraCrispy. Unfortunately and precisely Old West, Pulp, Weird World War III, WWII and Zulu war, all in 28mm are the periods I’m working on right now.  Also arriving to Wargames from the modeling camp does not help at all for painting armies.

    Though I’ll continue also in a year or so with ACW in 15mm.

    Can anyone recommend a fun set of WWII rules (preferably with an index) that are easy to play and remember, are a reasonable facsimile of squad to company level combat in WWII, that doesn’t restrict what you can field and is really inexpensive or free ? A tall ask I know.

     

    I’d say Too Fat Lardies rulesets comply with the request; fun, simple, good feeling of playing the period with credible outcomes and cheap if you get the PDF versions. “Chain of Command” and “Troop, Weapons and Tactics”  skirmish level to Company. And “I Aint Been Shot mum” from company to Battalion/Regiment.

    The only thing you might have an issue is that with their rulesets you roll a lot of dice. For some people this is a concern.

    Afternoon all.  Very glad to see several known faces (Etranger, Connard, Buff, Gaul, Jeremy, John, Patrice, Donald, Richard, etc.. ) .

    I’m Fernando Darlington from Madrid, 44, previously known as Palafox on WD3, TMP and other forums. I’ve retaken miniature painting recently as in the past two years I’ve only seen the mountain lead rise more and more. BTW, do you have any ideas for speed painting?, with the figures getting a good look, of course.

    Well, thanks for the efforts, Mike and the rest of webmasters. Hope to add something useful to the board.

    I have a Silair 300 but started with an old compressor similar to that one you ask about (This one, right?: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Wiltec-Airbrush-Mini-Compressor-model-AS18-2/dp/B004BDBVZ0).

    What do you need to know?

    Most bias I’ve found was regarding tanks. Tanks not only are the masters of the battlefield but also have rules that allow them to mow mercilessly those pesky Poor Bloody Infantrymen that have survived the blast of their death-ray cannons (or for the matter anything bigger than a 75mm).

    That’s a very clever idea Mike.
