I was going to make a bit of difference in the paint scheme, you know the big red one or the single masted red one or the three masted red one!!

As a newbie I am curious to learn why Vietnam figures are considered harder to paint than Modern Africa?

Mike, I wouldn't read too much nuance into this scoring - it was simply my subjective view. A few points to justify the difference, though:

a) i got fed up with painting the sandals (notably their straps) on my VC: barefoot AK47 Militia were much easier in that regard
b) the Vietnam US do indeed come with lots of nice detail - but it needs painting (I've actually carved some off my more recent figures, to add some variety)
c) the straps and flak jackets on the US Marines add a little more fiddliness: I cheated and used a mix of inks and dry-brushing which I was happy with but did take a little more time.

Does that help any?

Thanks Colonel, it makes sense to me now.

Well now I have seen them I am very impressed with those Austrian dragoons. They definitely have that Austrian cavalry panache.

Loads of Turkish barbers seem to have popped up over the last couple of years. Although my town is quite small (25000) there is a Turkish barbers, restaurant and chippy.

New Turkish WW1 bombers on site and ready to be delivered! Based the facial expression on my barber's.

My little pirate ships loo great (Julie painted them about 20 years ago).   Trouble is that you cannot se the names without turning the ship upside down. Gets confusing when there could be 5 to 11 ships on the table.  This makes identification tricky, unless you are psychotic (?).  Some of the other boys have put theirs on a base with a clear label at the back (Les, Duncan et al)

I think you could be correct as the box on the picture above says "miniature wargames". Thinking about i ve lived in Mudeford 19 years and i got when we were living in Somerford, so its got to be at least 21 years old ?

Wow - you are spoiling us, Martin. I'm sure we'll soon have folk flocking to sign up?

For those who don't have any aircraft he could represent your air asset when it arrives on table.

And, for those who do, it could replace their plane once it's been shot down?
