Not that I can’t live without the vast majority but when you have a finite time anything that speeds the process is worth its weight in gold.

What kind of tape is being used? It looks like masking tape, but must be double sided?

Simple double sided tape from a hobbycraft store @bungo

will the other nations reseve mascot animals to? that bear who made it onto a badge would be the most obvious choice

Yeah, I would totally buy a Wojtek figure!
And not a “pulpy” flight of fancy.

Why thank you kind sir, best way I know to not catapult your minis across the yard when you hit them with a rattle can πŸ‘πŸ˜ƒ

I am impressed with how quickly each army comes together.
Also, how can people get paint on so many models in so little time?

Looking at the Bren Carriers I’m sure Warlord had some pictures of some new metal 8th Army Crew made for the carriers. Can’t find the picture now tho πŸ™

Half these hobbyists know more than me – at least about the particular units they’re setting out to recreate.
