Ditto the World Cup Finals - everybody wants to be there, but only a few can be. There...

Is the ETC getting too large?

Re: It's that time of year - GW annual financial report

No! they are going to "improve" it. By creating wonderful new models, with amazing new back stories. Also a much simplified set of guidelines on how to play the "improved" game [the word "rules" is far too negative] However - the likelihood that they fit in with the &qu...

Re: I want to encourage 28mm Napoleonics in my area. Ideas?

Decide what rules you want to use.

Put on a game with a friend or friends.

Painted is not important. If they like the game they may then get involved.

Re: FOW Mid War AAR - Mixed Tankovy vs German Pioneers - Dust Up

Good report - as usual.

The Russian list just looks wrong somehow - I know the Matildas have good armour, I just don't think you need them with all the KV's you have.

However there appears to be hundreds of them.
Ones I have looked at, run the gamut of alcohol to "windex" via water as cleaners.

There are many other makes/types as well. It is wild.

Is there a "best" cleaner for Acrylics/polyurethane?

Or are they all the same?

I mention poly because I will be using the Vallejo Acrylic/poly primer as well as their paints.
