    Devil May Cry boardgame by Steamforged Games, Kickstarter

    SFG are also behind the "Critical Role" kickstarter. This is meant to be delivering before the end of the month. Communications have been poor and there has been a lot of disappointment about the quality of some figures. I do not wish to pass judgement before I receive my pledge, but I feel very reluctant to get involved with any of their other projects.
  2. Like many I started in this hobby with plastic kits. Decorated my room with a large portion of the Airfix catalogue of warplanes. All long gone now. No flying machines in my current collection. I do have a sneaking desire to build some of the Karadron dwarf fliers, but you know, GW prices...
  3. Agree with lots of names mentioned here, and adding Andrew Rae and Mark Copplestone. Aren't we lucky to have so many high talents in this hobby?
  4. The worst decision I ever made was not getting Victoria Lamb's BFG in Bones III.
  5. I hate painting horses. I've read every "how to" guide there is, and I'm still never satisfied with how they turn out. Which is frustrating as I LOVE wargaming with cavalry armies. Nothing gives more pleasure than getting round the flank of your opponents lumbering infantry and giving the order: "Everybody charge!"

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    There is a special circle in Hell waiting for (ex) Dr Wakefield.
  7. 1. Sensibly proportioned and attired women. 2. Figures without so much detail that they look cluttered and there is no room to try a little free-hand. 3. Artillery pieces and crew! 4. Anything that triggers my "shiny" response.
  8. Yes, I painted up a 54mm Napoleon as a gift for a friend who is a huge enthusiast about the Emperor. He seemed very pleased with it and it's still on display whenever I visit him. (So perhaps he has a good memory and takes it out of the rubbish, dusts it off and puts it on a shelf when he hears I am coming around...)

    Party over at VitM's house!
  10. Definitely not. I would think that having to do any hobby on a nine-to-five basis would soon kill off any pleasure involved. And not having any say in what I would paint would make me positively mutinous.

    No problem, but some of your designs look as if they were inspired by it.

    Buglips and SisterMary present ... German Infantry

    Both sets are really nice. Well done on getting the camouflage patterns to scale.

    I take it you've seen "The Cars That Ate Paris"?
