I nearly bought.....
« on: September 10, 2016, 12:20:13 AM »
....a Crimean War collection tonight at my club. In 15mm, used to to refight Balaclava which the current owners put on at Derby a couple of years ago. Then I realised that the price I had been quoted was just for the Russians and I would need to buy the British separately.  Then I thought just how many Peter Pig figures I could have bought for that much  :o

I was going to use the British for some ACW interventionist type  games. I also planned to use CWB to play Crimean games. Oh well  :D

... a Warpainter flockbox at Colours today. I (and other bystanders) was amazed how the static charge passed through cardboard or expanded polystyrene base material to rapidly make some very robust and "bristly" grass. Apparently the key is good quality PVA (they were using Evostick).

The 30 price tag made me thing twice (I've already made my own mini-version from a battery-powered fly zapper), but then there's always the next show...
