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.
1:76 v 1:72. I dont think it really matters unless you are trying to mix the same vehicle in a unit, a 1:76 sherman does look slightly smaller than a 1:72 version. Other than that not an issue. Figure wise it is a bit different dont try and use Valiant 1;72 with figs that claim to be 20mm or 1;76 it just doesnt work.
