If youíre feeling brave you could have a go at converting the chap with the wheelbarrow from the WWII civilians. The engineers are looking really good.

I find modern conflicts difficult to come to terms with as a pastime. By modern I mean post-1930. I have a variety of reasons for not doing the SCW or WWII, but having sat through night after night of TV news of Vietnam I have no appetite for recreating that. As for the current conflicts I am totally turned off. People may call me a hypocrite, but for me wargaming is history and post-1930 is still contemporary.

Just out of interest will you be modelling something along the lines of Basing House or some sort of sconce?

Seems to work that way. I went down the Liverpool club for a day shift game. One of the regular evening gamers had turned up with a new player. We welcomed them to the day shift with a double scotch.

Here you go Duncan. First up a base of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha troops in 2mm for the 1866 Seven Weeks War:



A few shots of a 2mm battlefield:





And some shots of the PP ACW 3mm figures from the Hammeriní Iron range:

I understood the concept of the head packs was so that figures didnít look exactly the same.

General discussion / Re: Whatís your favourite Peter Pig figure range?
« on: September 06, 2018, 05:21:38 PM »
On a slightly different tack I would like to think about favourite PP figures and ranges of the past. My favourite was the early C16th Italian Condottiere range, particularly the pikemen, produced at a time when most other manufacturers were only producing landsknecht pikemen. Also really good were the crossbowmen, arquebusiers, the officers, the big guns, the laden baggage wagon and the men being rude (I particularly liked the man flicking the back of his hand under his chin in true Italian style). Perhaps part of the reason for its demise was the fact that there was no accompanying rules set and the cavalry were a little diminutive (although the Ďlightí cavalry in full armour on unarmored horses were lovely sculpts). Anyway, I still have all the figures I bought, now integrated into my Impetus Venetian army. I have even added in some of the WOR casualties.

Well, in response to Duncanís request for how do we cope, I have prescription reading glasses made. I discussed with the optician exactly why I needed them and he had them made up so that they are just right for painting the wee figures, bearing in mind that I also paint the ACW 3mm figures as well as 28mm, 15mm, 12mm, 10mm, 8mm and 6mm - oh, and there are also my 2mm 1866 Hanoverians and Prussians.

They would work well in a number of post-1900 settings.
