June mould 2
« on: June 22, 2020, 09:08:09 PM »
Just an update for those who are interested.

I am working hard to get the paratroops done by end of June.
I think it will extend into July though.
I have several other items that need doing urgently; so will fit them in too.


July will see work start  on mexrev for release at start of August 2020.

Tonight's mould
1. Figures for MAD vikings
2. Para Dead
3. Para binoculars. I have done this for EW Germans and German paras and like the idea.   I await the question about "why the need for units of binocular men?" Suggestions?

martin :)

Looking forward to your new figures..

Suggestion for the para binocular chaps... German para’s had radio teams bringing in stukas or other air support...whether at the hq level or otherwise. Be a perfect fit for them.

Thank you for your continued commitment to the Paras, Martin.

My suggestion for the troops with binoculars is that they could fit in well for the regimental-level Voegelbeobachtungsabteilung. Perhaps one base supporting each HQ stand?

They would need to be in greatcoats. You would also need a range of bushes for them to hide in. Also police to hunt them down and arrest them. I sense another new range Martin, or maybe not. Could be a bit inappropriate.
By the way, Martin, when are the new 60x60 socially distancing bases being released?

Nearly every wargame I have played needs figures as forward observers for air and artillery support so binos are most welcome.

I'd normally interject here asking for some ECW types with telescopes, but as they had only really just been invented (and the technology hadn't filtered down to being portable) I won't.

 Slightly disappointed.

I like the look of the MAD Vikings figures.
