Re: Shouting at the Telly (Man in the Iron Mask)

As retired Air Force all my friends hated watching movies like Iron Eagle or any other movie that depicted airplanes on which we had worked. They never got it right and was usually laughable in how they showed all aspects of the military. As for historical movies, when Braveheart came out I remember...

Re: Perfect timing

My rules came this past week as well and after giving them a once over they are very familiar to me after playing VWQ as much as I have. I have some well painted Highlanders lying around that I will re-base as my first faction and go from there.

Re: Which faction will YOU do?

didn't see an order for the rules from you, have I missed something or did you place it with Bob at LRS?

Re: Sri Lanka Painters

We used Fernandos painting service to get lots of 28mm ECW figures painted. They are done to a decent wargames standard and ECW are a mixed lot so tiny details were not done nor asked for. They ask you upfront everything you require, the colors etc. this is where you have to be detailed. They sent p...
