I had gotten to your blog somehow, from somewhere, once before and then, like a fool, didn't bookmark it and couldn't find my way back. That wall has been haunting my dreams ever since. Thanks for providing the link.
There are some fantastic pictures of it in Phil's thread on the Guild Forum If I could put a link in I would do!
Just been sent the official E Mail showing the GW new paint range. Does look like a fantastic range and is going to be good for beginners as it will show them the priciples of Shading and Highlighting at a very much earlier stage. I am thinking positive here and think this will be a worthy addition .I don't know how long they will keep the entire range together as GW tend to quickley rationalise their paint range. I remember buying a pot of Terracota coloured paint once and as quickley as it was introduced it was deleted the following year.
First of all I am not sure necromancy is a breech of the Forum rules . I might just get a ban I had to ressurect this thread from page 8!
For Dark Ages fans and Saga, it looks like the long awaited plastic Norman Infantry by Conquest are due out. They have also got some new box art for the cavalry.
I have been thinking about this as it wasn't that long ago , just before Conquest came on the scene that I priced up a 5000 Wab Norman army and it came to just over £600.00 . I reckon with these new infantry plus the existing plastic cavalry this size of army would now cost less than a third . Just goes to show that in the historicals plasticising armies really saves money .
Yay! Well done on reviving the thread CW... like seeing an old friend unexpectedly.
I am very interested in the conquest Normans... but better get working on the plastic/lead pile first.

Is there much of a market for resin 1/72 WW2 kits? Forgive my numpty question but if there is, why? When you can get what seem to be very decent plastic kits for less than half the price of resin, without the hassles of resin either...
I say this because I just wish someone would make some 28mm (1/56) plastic tanks, if they did I wouldn't look at resin.

Yes simply put because a lot of gamers don't like building kits.
For example I would dearly luv to have a full company of Dragon T34s ie 10 . But wouldn't like the job of building them. If there is a decent 4 piece kit either in Resin or plastic then these would be preferable . This company are looking to introduce such things but not losing the detail . For example their German Panthers will have the Zimmerite paste look which is missing on most current offerings.
There is always room for another manufacturer if they are prepared to up the stakes when it comes to detail and accuracy.
Despite a PM from the designer I still don't understand his rationale for the 1/48th resin models
Thats the problem with Millicast is that they are 1/76 and not 1/72nd
I have had many a conversation with Tom over the choice of scale but still prefers to stick to the British scale which is 1/76 . Everyone else in Europe is 1/72.- Including a couple of British companies Raventhorpe and Plastic Soldier Company .
My British Army which contains many Millicast models is 1/76.
