I only deal with companies that charge postage at actual cost or have free / fixed rate postage.
Not a bad start Ken10/07/2020 at 04:39 in reply to: Am I the only hobbyist who simply doesn’t believe in undercoat colours? #140057
Also depends on the opaqueness of the paints. Paints are becoming better at this, but for some colours (e.g. yellows) it is still difficult to find a good covering paint that can paint solidly over black in one layer. Or I should upgrade my collection of paints, I’ll leave that as a possibility as well …
But anyway, I use an undercoat as the dominant colour of the figure. I have a whole series of cans of various colours to undercoat figures – brown, green, grey, blue … and I simply use the dominant colour of the uniform.
I am with you on this one Phil
It saves time and give a nice even finish
Tried to paint straight onto primer a few times but it did not turn out as good as using a spray basecoat
Seems to be working now
Yup I have to log in every time I visit despite having ticked the ‘remember me’ box
Not a big problem , would not stop me visiting the site but curious.
So does that mean the traders that have invested £1000’s won’t get a refund or see any return on their investment.
Just a big spend on stock, hotels, van hire, stand fees etc?
But no way to get that money back for 12 months?
That’s what I am thinking too – that sucks. If the traders go under or get really peed off, there will be no Salute 2021 surely?
I did metal 28’s with Marine varnish – dropped em from 3 feet onto concrete – not a scratch
…..not saying to use it for plastics tho

Afternoon Brendan, drop me an email with you address and I will replace them.
First Class service as usual!
They look like 28mm!
Sounds like a smashing game and good time. I like that the rules sound like they can recreate historical actions without them having to be that way all of the time. Looking forwards to hearing more!
Have heard enough I am looking forward to getting my paws on a set!27/11/2019 at 22:21 in reply to: (DBMM) rules interpretation: moving obstructing elements BEFORE contact? #127228
As an ex – DBM player (not played DBMM) I would say the Cavs threat zone is negated as the other 2 elements physically interrupt the zone.
I would have gone with option F too.
In the past ordered heaps from them – always turned up but the last year or so they have had lots of problems
Colour me eagerly awaiting too.
Mr Clarke needs to clone himself so he can finish the ancients, finish the Far East CoC rules/lists, do the massive Market Garden PSC and release O group – that’s just for starters! 😁
I would have offered them 10 quid for it 🙂
IIRC Warbases in UK have some of that sorta stuff
Some great looking shots of the tables there – well done
Wow that last one looks great.
A different filament makes a big difference in appearance
Did you make any other changes to settings etc?
Winsor and Newton Professional Artists Matt Varnish is great and I used to use it but now the Australian wholesaler has dropped it!
Testors has always caused problems with colour IMHO although it usually ends up very matt but washes out any highlights
Army painter works OK for first half of can then goes satin for next 25% then stops working with 25% still left – has happened to 3 cans in a row now
Really nice work
I think the print lines running vertically is a good idea – then the weathering hides em better
I have a copy I would be willing to part with
Seems to be down again – any news form the owner?

Yes I have that problem about 50% of the time – might try the refreshing trick as logging out and back in does not always work either 🙁
Oh and the bit I really do not understand is why it only effects some boards and not others at the same time?

I have about 40 of them – it becomes an addiction – they paint up rather well and I like the poses
OK thanks guys JTFM is looking good, I thought someone else did separate barrels but I must have imagined it
You play it? …….we talk about it
Thanks Mick they look OK had spotted some unpainted OO/HO on fleabay but was wondering how they would look
Thanks Mike will try that next time it happens -delayed gratification and all that
Anyway managed to find someone with some good comparison shots – prob the only ones on the net!

Tried in the WWII forum kept saying could not post until I was logged in , obviously I WAS logged in as I posted on the General forum
Hello is there anyone out here?
RIP Allen you will be missed – he was one of those posters on various sites that you could reley on
I’d think tankers would be quite reluctant to drive into building except as a last resort.
Agreed – Tanks have no business doing FIBUA – that’s best left to the infantry. Especially an AFV with the reach of a Tiger – ideally it should be covering the approaches to the built up area from stand off ranges…
Yes imagine the grief you will get when you get from the Officer in charge of repairs when you bring your Tiger back minus everything that was on the outside and ask for the gun sights to realigned?
I have seen propaganda film of tanks driving through modest wooden huts but not brick houses. At Arnhem the Tigers sat as close range and pounded the buildings until they collapsed they did not drive into them…..only happens in FOW 🙂
PS I also have 14 Tigers in 15mm 7 in 3 tone camo and 7 in Winter

Have you tried searching for 1/72 scale as well as 20mm?
Yeah it looks like Chrome that is stopping me posting – it stops access to a few sites grrrrr
Oh and feel free to pm me your email address if you want a pdf copy of Charles Grants book
Ooops just saw your other post – yes met Jacksarge up at Campbelltown Military Fair were we Bunker Rats put on a display game of Arnhem

Wow TW that is doing it tough in terms of historical gaming buddies – I thought the guys in Devonport were isolated!
Have you seen or spoken to
that doesn’t restrict what you can field
That’s a strange request – do you mean has not historical organisational basis?
Currently I am learning Chain of Command – which is not free but reasonably cheap and is a load of fun
it is platoon level plus support
Other local gamers are playing Bolt Action and of course the ubiquitous Flames of War.
There has been some interest in the Blitzkreig series which is plt to company level but I have not played it personally
If you want a really easy and basic fun set you cannot go past Battle by Charles Grant (my first set 40 years ago ) now free – I have a pdf copy if you want
PS I am also based in Tassie where do you play?
