    Steve,

    OK. Give me a day or two to dig out the box and see what there is. I know there is the meeting hall and bar made up but not painted, a fair bit more too.

    Steven,

    I have some of his sci fi buildings in 15mm that I won’t use as I’ve veered away from 15mm. I’ll have to dig them out to see what there is if you’re interested. I know there are two of the larger landing craft as well.

    Let me know and I’ll start digging.

    TTFN,

    Dave

    Good to hear you’re on the mend Tony. Sounds pretty drastic!

    Take care now.

    The reason the Post Office can charge you for collecting any VAT and import duty on your parcel is that the UK governments have cut nearly all its Customs staff at the parcel post depots that dealt with imported post. The “task” of collecting any duties and taxes was then “farmed out” in a move reminiscent of the middle ages. Preventive measures now “probably” consist of a parcel maybe going through an x-ray machine, maybe a search dog going around the parcels and packets, or occasionally a team on bods doing a “spot check” on the same. Not very satisfactory really.

    The current law seems ill thought through but we’ve come to expect that sort of thing.

    I’ve used enamels on medium and hard plastics and never had a problem. They always get a black undercoat.

    The bulges were armoured covers for the air intakes for the engine. On early models A & B these were just open and close vertical slats but were found to be weak points.

    I’d be inclined to go for Jigsaw. Not as high public profile as the other two.

    Ivan,

    The Brits, at least, also used the 105mm Jumbo Shermans in HQ’s. Ospreys “Shermans in British Service” refers to them.

    If I get bored/hacked off painting something, I switch to painting something else (usually something part painted…….).

    Yes, I have some of those. Still in little drawers, organised into units but not yet painted………………….

    Drew’s Militia. Taken over by Battlefield Miniatures.

    Drew’s had a vast catalogue of great figures that have nearly all disappeared  under Battlefield.

    Not of what I’ve done.

    But I do list the colours for each unit/vehicle etc. That way I can match the same paint when I add to it years later…..

    Last I heard of mike, which was a “few” years ago now, he was in Cheshire. Somewhere near Runcorn/Warrington, I think. He had moved a few times and was sick but no idea if this was long term or what? I think his family circumstances were on the point of change too.

    I’d love to see the SDD 20mm Spanish Civil War trucks and the British Homeguard stuff on sale again. Not to mention all that Village Green loveliness…….

    Oh no….

    Wot, no signs of religious rituals……….

    I make a point not to watch anything that mentions Arthur. Not a fan of Alice or the peacenik invasive migration theories.

    I like wargaming the “Dark Ages” using Dux Bellorum but not much time for most of the bull that gets linked to Arthur.

    I don’t like FB and would never join it, so wouldn’t get any FB only discounts. C’est la vie……

    By the same token, if a company only has a FB page/site, I wouldn’t even look at its products even if they were the DB’s and only obtainable there!

    I’ve bought quite a bit from them over the last year or two. Very nice stuff, well cast, and always great service.

    No hesitation in recommending them.

    I have an Early War Miniatures one. Very nice, simple and quick to assemble.

    1 x Matilda Mark1 tank

    I’m pretty sure this is the old Skytrex model, cleaned up and simplified. Decent price too.

    There is also the SHQ one, all metal.

    http://www.shqminiatures.co.uk/Ranges/WWII/British/Britishmain.php?UID=20141113182526146.90.60.180

    I’d go with EWM because of simplicity and speed of assembly.

    UNPAINTED FIGURES ON THE TABLE!!! …………. NOOOOOO…………….

    Wouldn’t dream of doing it, or let anyone field such in a game. That’s the start of a downward and degenerate spiral!

    There’s bound to be some time lag for the gathering of the forces. But its definitely worth the wait.

    Now that is how to publicise your show!

    Excellent, all the information you are likely to need in one place. I would have loved to go but circumstances precluded that 🙁

    I have not been for quite a few years unfortunately, I went to a couple of the early ones.

    Some other show organisers should take note and copy this great approach.

    I hope the show was a great success.

    Outstanding!!

    “The Baggage Train” has some nice afghan buildings that have lift off roves. I think the only one that doesn’t is the chieftains tower? Reasonable price too.
