( Daffy is Warner Bros. I think we’ve spotted a fifth columnist! )
>2029: Disney storms headquarters of Warner Bros, killing many, and taking the company by force.
so daffy is part of Disney by 2051?
@piers – BT-7s in use in Karelia until almost 1945 – that wouldn’t surprise me in the least. This was one of the lowest-priority sectors of the STAVKA’s front (so would be forced to use older equipment far longer than other sectors), and Soviets would use friggin’ everything they had at hand no matter how obsolete or [...]
(1) (Hollywood) movies and games are not documentaries …. Sure. We know that, because we’ve either read actual accounts or used other means to dig deeper. They’re not as boring as the history lessons we got in school. Yet at the same time they do act as gateways into history to those of us who [...]
Saw it yesterday. Oh man… That’s a couple of hours I’ll never get back. The entire movie was so utterly stupid that I don’t even know where to begin. The only moment I actually liked was Luke ripping the old Jedi Order a new one. Having tortured myself with both the prequel trilogy and the [...]
I think it is a sensible approach to this kind of thing. What they appear to be doing is to ensure that both teams can be recognized on the tabletop. That’s why metal needs a bit of paint and the (pre coloured) plastic variant doesn’t. And I think they’ve set the standard low enough that [...]
@setesch said: You’re so right @elessar2590 ! One of my biggest problems is the “fact” “Germany started WW I” – In Europe it started with the assassination of the Austrian crown prince in Sarajevo and the Austrian declaration of war against Serbia. Austria asked Germany for help and it was granted. Than Serbia asked Russia and they granted [...]
……………………….*speechless* ………………………Congratulations that is magnificent. I love that whole extra level that people like yourself can take the hobby. Thank you so much for sharing
I understand the reasons, but personally don’t like it. I think the painting requirement did a lot to make guildball tournaments some of the best looking. That is as a hideously slow painter.
Normally think Steamforged are spot on, but not on this one. Also doesn’t set a good precedent for Godtear
Oh wow @oriskany … that is much more stuff than I dreamed of in the beginning But the 7th was at the 1944 Offensive because it is mentioned in one of your maps at the attack on Petsamo. It became heavy after these operations. If my researches are correct than they participated in the last [...]
Friar Tuck, legendary tonsured companion of Robin Hood, joins my miniatures collection. “Praise the Lord! And pass the tax rebate!” Friar Tuck was an impulse purchase whilst acting as Nottingham cultural attaché for visiting family members. Warlord Games (a Nottingham company) have a small range of Heritage Miniatures they’ve slipped into local tourist spots like the [...]
@querion said: @aekhold (1) Rhino: yeah maybe a bit more restraint on the weathering would’ve helped here. But still it’s great looking and like you said, with nurgle that amound of weathering is still fine. i especially like the way you did the symbol on the roof.
Thanks very much for the feedback! I was trying to represent [...]
The Wood Mother is a versatile model for the Coven. She is a witch, and like most witches, she has Hex Siphon and Curse. Hex Siphon allows you to grant a witch an extra action point when you kill someone with hex damage (e.g. curse). Can really help you push a little extra to swing [...]
My biggest concern in modern times is the ignorance in Europe of how the Nazis rose to power. If I had time I would write a list of policies and I doubt many would know if they were modern or national socialist in origin. I genuinely believe that the young particularly are scarily ignorant in [...]
I seem to remember a selection of rather old armour still remaining in use in Karelia till almost into 1945.
Somewhere I have an account of a recce unit that fielded a pair of BT7s in 1944 alongside their Valentines.
@elessar2590 said: Ok but you’re forgetting that the Waterloo ridge was a steep incline of mud that has now just been torn up by thousands of horses. Good luck getting artillery up quickly in that mess. Maybe Ney didn’t just forget to bring up the Artillery maybe he judged it unfeasible. Maybe he thought he could break [...]
History is a funny thing. A lot of it is based on hearsay or written with bias attached to begin with, even before media/people get their grubby mitts on it and use it to fit their narrative. I can’t really comment on the examples you guys have given because I’m not well informed enough about [...]

I only pledged for the base game, expansions being a bit out of my budget. That arrived two weeks ago and the KS exclusive rewards just this weekend. I was blown away at the amount and quality. Had not intended to paint the pieces but am now seriously rethinking that choice. I love the stone [...]
You know, I never knew the Soviets formed heavy tank brigades. I knew about the independent guards heavy tank regiments, of course, but a brigades? Awesome! There’s always something new to learn. I’ve confirmed your findings re: 46th TB, 7th GTB, and 7th GHTB (we may have the same sources?) Made of three tank battalions, each of [...]

I really enjoyed watching the movie. I like the story they are telling a lot, but sometimes not the way they are telling it. Cons first: – The way Leia survived in the beginning. Man that was crap. And it also looked really crappy. Just have her injured in some corner or something. – Rose. [...]
Good point on the medic … I’ll have to kick the nubers around to work him in … though the kettenkrad will probably be hauling the panzerschrek around so keeping it vet ups my chances of getting a pin free shot off on delivery, for a few points … Simmiler force list eh … any [...]
I’m not a historian, or nearly as well read as I’d like to be … but sitting their working on some terrain with the boobtube going in the background and I find myself correcting the program every 3 to 5 minets … yes a foreign power launched attacks on Americain soil before japan did … [...]
