I shudder at the thought of meeting someone with a mind like mine!

Way beyond my comprehension or care. Anyone seen my hoplites?

I have to buy both sides... no-one to play with.

I am currently in the same position. When I actually have a few armies assembled I will seek out opponents.

This is my second year back in the hobby and I have still not completed one army let alone two. I have made almost zero progress this month because of work. However, I broke out of procrastination mode today and a good force of infantry are nearly ready for varnishing. October is looking good work wise and I anticipate a large increase in finished figures.

Well they were quite happy to make a feature film about an Irish terrorist/freedom fighter not too long back. Oh yes - Hereward the Wake - Terrorist! May he rot in hell for taking up arms against the Norman invaders.
Napoleon Bonaparte - terrorist. The war was over in 1814. How dare he ignore the rules of war.

As far as I know the only signatory to the Hague and Geneva conventions you have mentioned above is Britain (those treaties inconveniently forbid terrorism/insurgency after a surrender). The above post could well be construed as an attempt of a supporter of terrorism to move the goal posts in order to defend illegal warfare.   ;)

Eye Candy / Scratch building a galley
« Last post by Lluis of Minairons on September 24, 2018, 03:10:33 PM »
I've enjoyed little chances to post anything here lately, due to a sudden blackout during a heavy storm having damaged my home PC, several days ago --I haven't got it repaired yet. I haven't stood idly by in the meanwhile, though.

I'm now working on a third ships commission (three piggy frigates for a friend), as well on a Skytrex galleass for my own collection. But the lack of a home PC has also favoured me to dare experimenting with making ships from scratch --like the small galliot or "galera subtil" below.



I've made it entirely with PVC and HPS plastics, either from plain sheets or spare parts from other model kits; only the mast and flag poles are non-plastic.





I'm now in the process of building a similar but larger galley using the same material sources. Pictures hopefully soon  :)

Hi Hman,

Welcome to the forum!

Where abouts do you live? The Peter Pig game days and weekender are a great opportunity to play with like minded people. There is a PBI day in Bournemouth this Saturday if your close by with loan armies available.

I think Julie changed the 'club' code to 'DT4' back in July, minimum order 20.
