Strelets Boers


They have chunky and exaggerated poses, but on the plus side every single figure has a different pose.

You can see a full review of the figures on the excellent Plastic Soldier Review website

New Nappies - RobH

As a follow on to a skirmish scenario we gamed with some of our regular wargame buddies a couple of weeks ago (http://wargamestenerife.blogspot.com/2011/08/song-of-drums-and-shakos-escaramuzas.html), our mate Rob brought some very nice freshly painted 1/72 Italeri Napoleonic British he's just finished.

"Dream House"

I was in the UK a short while ago and happened to go into a "Poundshop"

Sifting through the tack, you can usually always find something useful in those places and I found these brightly coloured 1/72 scale "Dream houses" - well, actually half a house, you have to buy two to make a full-house.




When I get them painted up they should make half-decent scenery items.

More than "amused", I found the description hilarious :-)
