I've used Testors dull-coat and Army Painter (both sprays) and found both to work equally well. A couple of snags however I've come across: - both turn steel (WG 'boltgun metal' and/or 'chainmail') a dull grey, so re-touching is necessary on weapons and armour - inkjet paper flags are destroyed, so ...

Comrades, much obliged for your kind comments. The intention was for a much larger force but no way can I afford it or put in that much effort. I take my hat off to you guys who produce numerous big battalions and other arms. Once Pendraken release their new LoA range, likely I'll go for Bothwell Br...

Aye laddie, wan o' Jock Tamson's bairns. May can be a good month in Scotland but the weather is never really predictable, suffice to say, drier in the east, wetter in the west. Always expect bad weather in the north west. The place is forty shades of green, covered in mountains, forests, lochs and r...

A thought just struck me, if you are young and don't mind less than 5-star, then this may be of interest:

Any reply is going to be highly subjective. Also difficult depending whether you're after huntin', shootin' and fishin', culture, history, hill-walking, mountaineering, wildlife watching, outdoor sports, etc. How you travel can make a difference too, remember fuel is expensive in UK and gets dearer ...

Jim, that's how I started as well, Minifigs and Hinchliffe. Like you I've still got them all though they've been through several transformations, expansions and contractions over the years. If they had kept their prices sensible, I'd probably still use them but at near enough equal in price to Front...

Minifigs anyone?

The Government army at Sherrifmuir 1715. A spur of the moment project using part of a WSS army. All figures are Minifigs Marlburian Brits. Inn two bits because I haven't got a table big enough to take them all :oops: Left Wing http://i.imgur.com/aoeJUIu.jpg Right Wing http://i.imgur.com/OOoPd97.jpg ...

Gentlemen, many thanks for your interesting and informative replies. Jim; as a 'Christ and no quarter' :twisted: presbyterian from Hamilton in Lanarkshire I agree Option 1. Sadly these figures are more or less useless for the earlier stuff. Ray; very persuasive re the WSS. What to do? What to do? I ...

WSS 28mm Plastics

Hello Gents. Long time follower and lurker, first post. Just got a box of the Wargames Factory figures. From what I see on the sprues, I've come up with 2 options of how to deploy the 36 figures available: 1. http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r221/cameronian/WFWSS01.jpg 2. http://i145.photobucket.c...

Targe

Yup, enjoyed it. Good venue, incredibly friendly and helpful locals. The Lorne rolls were indeed good! Bit tight for space between the traders' stands and game tables. I'll certainly be back next year.
