Re: First French Brigades for Blucher

Nice stuff! Lovely...

You’ve changed to ‘full’ large bases now for these?

Working on a Waterloo game with my mates we’re going to use 40x20 (generally) Brigade bases with the units details off board on a sheet that’ll allow us maximum use of our tabletop.

Re: My 10mm World War II Project

Nice Camo schemes on the Panthers/Tiger IIs well done!

Re: Gunners Post apoc project, stalker conversions

Welcome back!

A bit of work with those conversions! Did you ‘pin’ parts like the heads and arms for extra strength? This topics not my cup of tea but I appreciate the work that’s gone in here to get such good looking figures!
