For the filters for the face mask, you need the ones rated ABEK1, which will cover you as that’s what we used to use at work. Two layers of Nitrile gloves are a must IMHO, in case one glove splits. Eye protection an absolute must too. If you can, have doors and windows open when loading the machine, processing parts etc to minimise the build up of fumes.
With Milliput and Greenstuff, you need to mix a relatively large amount to make sure you get a good mix of the component parts, to allow the chemical reaction to take place properly. Too small amounts and it doesn’t work as well, so may not go off properly, not be strong enough etc.
Thanks for the review Guy. Not sure if the lucky dip winners have been announced yet or not, but a book certainly worth considering for the library. The other book mentioned I’ll have a gander at later on.12/05/2022 at 20:18 in reply to: Leipzig 1813, the battle for Probstheida, Game at NBHW #172851

Brilliant work Geoff!03/05/2022 at 12:52 in reply to: What does a wargamer do with £1 worth of matchsticks? #172344
Crackign work there Willz!
Well done Michael and Sam! I can’t believe it’s 8 years already as it seems like only yesterday that you started it.
I haven’t noticed any show discounts of late, compared to say 10 years ago when you did get good show discounts.
I go to see the games, chat with friends and gamers, then I’ll browse the traders. So no, I wouldn’t go to a show without any games.
Well I have (not all painted or based)
- German Heer & Fallschirmjager
- British & Paratoopers
- US Infantry & Airborne
I think that’s it…
Great work their Will!
Thanks for this as I haven’t seen this before. Looks like it clarifies some of the questions we had before Covid put pay to FtF gaming.
I have them but haven’t played them yet due to my gaming chum not being around due to working from home at present. Some parts I can’t quite get my head around, but I too couldn’t find any online support. Normally I would expect the GEG forum to have a sub-section for them but last time I checked they didn’t. Maybe the rules just didn’t sell well enough to warrant one?
Nice work there Will.
Leven Miniatures have a very good and broad range. Battlescale worth a look too. Commission Figurines do some mdf buildings for WWII, so check them out if this might be of interest. There are others but I can’t think of them off the top of my head!02/03/2022 at 07:24 in reply to: Many Rivers to Cross CoC campaign Holland 1940 (updated 09 05 22) #169351
Some lovely photos there and off to check your Blog now.
Household paints for walls are vinyl based, with no latex as far as I know. However worth a try.
No idea I’m afraid Mike. I would suggest adding a bit of pva glue to the paint to give it some flexibility. Of course the only way to really tell is to paint/flock a small area and see how you get on.29/01/2022 at 11:13 in reply to: Lion Rampant in the Pyrenees – Devon Wargames Group #167779
What a lovely looking game! Great rules too.
That’s a very nice looking army you have their Mike.
I remember when the White Dwarf magazine was really good (Paul Sawyer was the editor) there used to be a series of articles from a gamer in Swindon (I think) who didn’t paint to Golden Demon standard etc, but had nice armies and came up with interesting scenarios, along the lines of the one you suggested Mike. Sadly at the club there were too many competition type gamers so unusual scenarios or tweaking stats etc never got a look in. Shame really as the background fluff to Warhammer is brilliant.
Play some more narrative driven campaigns. Get in some FtF games with friends again, if Covid allows. Hopefully attend Colours wargames show. Paint some more figures to finish off many partially painted forces.
Those look great Will and David’s work is always first class.
That’s a very nice looking game Mark and rather festive with the wintery setting.
Mine is wrapped up, even though I bought it myself, but it makes it easier that way for the family. Our son has bought me something, which is nice, so can’t wait to see what it is. It might be from Antics modelshop or a DVD…20/12/2021 at 08:38 in reply to: Travel Size Collapsible Terrain for 3mm Scale Gaming #166167
Really looking forward to it Norm!
Sounds good to me and look forward to some updates:)
That’s a blast from the past Mark and I have some 1970’s Ral Partha figures somewhere in the attic that I’m too attached to to get rid of, even though they haven’t been used since the early 1980’s!
Great work there!28/11/2021 at 17:34 in reply to: Warfare 2021, Ascot – Wargames Association of Reading #165367
Thanks for the review JJ.
I preferred the ‘old layout’ as it was much easier to see. Like others, I spent many minutes trying to find the ‘submit’ button that is barely visible.
The kitchen is my hobby space for 90% of the time, but I do have a garage for all the really dusty and smelly terrain making, so not all bad.
I had a planned game with friends out of town so was unable to attend. As Guy said, I hope it went well for all concerned.
Visitor numbers down around 50% apparently, with circa 4,000 advance tickets sold. IIRC numbers used to be around the 10K mark.
Very nice Mark and I too like CCP1 the best.
