    Thanks. Tried a few years back to get some guys in my local club to get into it using the open fire box but they wouldn’t budge of 40k. Trying to give it another go by branching out myself to find clubs/players.

    It’s always great to get a friend into it with you too. That way you can always have someone to play with on or off the tables at your local club. But any ways welcome to an amazing club of gamers!!! Good luck on the fields of battle.

    I know there are a few in Belfast, and there may even be an ETC event next year. I’ll try to get in touch with some of them for contact details, as I’m not sure if they’re on here to see. Failing that you should check out Table Top North, based up at the stranmillis [...]

    Hey All I’m keen to get into flames of war but I’m struggling to find people playing the game. I’m from the Belfast area and would be happy to travel to get playing some games. At present I haven’t made any purchases as I don’t want to have a load of models if there is [...]

    Interesting pics and they certainly make me even more excited about this.
    Better start practicing to paint BDU camo in 15mm…

    Cheers for posting @marqod nice pictures.

    I’ve always wanted to game the modern period on a slightly larger scale than just skirmish level and these look to fit the bill. I will keep an eye on the range as i would like to play 3rd Generation Warfare rules with them.

    That is true but i think we were all talking about the BMP. Yes the line will be a variety of materials, any one thinking it will all be plastic will be dissapointed ;)

    You can’t jump to a lot of conclusions. A picture of a plastic M113 is easy to make since they have long produced a M113 plastic kit for Vietnam and Arab-Israeli. I think you will see a mix of product for this just like their other lines.

    The BMP looks to be plastic by the join at the front of the hull. Those Russian infantry look really nice.

    I want to see some Brit stuff. Imagine painting the Berlin urban camouflage in 15mm!

    This could get me into FoW at last.

    Looks like the boys over at Breakthrough Assault got some pictures of minis for Team Yankee:

    These look pretty nice.
    They seem to be plastic as well, which is pretty good news.

    What do you guys think?

    Depending upon the parts, sounds a bit daft, but, if a part is painted completely before building there is the risk of weak jointing where the adhesive attaches two painted surfaces together, over glueing these can also lead to an unsightly seam of plastic mixed with a mixture of paint being pushed from between the [...]

    I build everything except the tracks then spray the tracks black and the rest green then finish the build then start painting.

    Try a few methods out to see what works for you
