Martin, this might be a cheeky request, but will there be a discount code for the Viking Day?

It might even encourage more punters to turn up....?

Apologies - I was a bit late to this party - but that's a very informative and nicely-made ship assembly and painting video Martin!

They seem far too cheap Tim!!

But then again they're not PP figures  ;)

OK, so I can confirm #69 for the 3 on the right - I don't seem to have the one on the left, so I don't know what that is.

Could it be from one of the WW2 ranges? Hard to tell from the photos on the PP website, as they're all side-on.

The mystery of the massive mortar continues...

Thanks for this Martin.

I don't have access to such a beast, but it's an interesting thought - I'd never heard of that.

I'll either dunk them in Dettol once I'm done with the figures, or give them a good dose of debonder, I guess.

But thank for the thought.

Simon

The 3 on the right look to me like pack #69 from the AK47 range.

I'm not so sure about the one on the left - might this be an older casting?

I can have a look at mine tonight if we don't manage to resolve this all earlier.

Very sorry to hear that, Radar. Clearly not a good time of year to be spraying. Although I'll need to prime my lot again once they've had the full Dettol treatment and a good shower afterwards...

For quality I am keeping the system I used for the original set as my figures are all ready based.
That is gree grass for Retenue, brown dirt for levey and A mix of both for household.

That's a very neat idea, Stewart.

Wow - those limbers are great!

Would look good in a Peter Pig commercial. Or maybe the next 15 Mill ezine...?

What about 2021 ?

Good idea - I may have a first platoon done by then  :)

I've just spotted the free online article on gaming the Vercors campaign against the French maquisards:

Next issue is to be focused on the Dark Ages and Vikings!

Thanks Miles!

I've been thinking that Crete would make a great multiplayer PBI game one day (although probably not this year!).

Folks who have 8th Army could use them for the Commonwealth troops, while the Germans would need relatively smallish numbers of Fallschirmjaeger without much armour (I think some SP guns at least may have been air-landed later in the battle).

I've been starting to read up...

I reckon if you leave that marker in Dettol for a few days the super glue will dissolve.

Dettol: kills all known germs, paints and adhesives :)
