Links

Below a small number of links to websites we find particularly useful and inspiring.

                            Wargaming

A nice collection of articles and battle reports by John-Michael Murray from the Canaries. Particularly the archives are highly illuminating, with many a good tip on conversions etc buried within them.

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Matakishi's Tea House is one of the most entertaining wargaming pages out there - and lots of CF stuff in there, too! Particularly valuable are the sections on making terrain and scenery.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

One of the premier wargaming forums around; highly inspirational particularly when it comes to making terrain and painting figures.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

                             Modelling

In the site management's humble opinion still one of the very best small-scale armour modelling sites out there; a great collection of models and a great source of inspiration. In fact, it was this site that introduced me to modelling on the net quite a number of years ago now.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The most important single source for reference available anywhere on 1/72 plastic figures!

Scores and scores of reviews, all with excellent illustrations. Before you buy a set of figures, have a look here!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tony Matteliano's vast collection of links to all different kinds of homepages related to modelling; well worth a visit.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A large resourceful site for military modellers. The forum section is well worth a visit.

       Suppliers of necessary (and unnecessary...) stuff

Bas Bijman of bat-hor.com not only sells figure sets, but also offers a loose figure service, which as far as I know is pretty unique - and extremely useful, I may add. Particularly if you need a couple of figures out of one of those dreaded "mixed sets", bat-hor is the place to go!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

While we generally prefer to use "bendies" in our games, there are things that you won't get in plastic. So off to get some metal, and the Platoon 20 range sold by East Riding Miniatures are among my favourites.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

Another producer of 20mm metal figures is Stan Johansen; the 20mm Jihad range has some really nice figures, including civilians, all too rare to get.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

S & S has a great and expanding range of hardware, figures and accessories at very competitive prices. The modern hardware is particularly interesting, as it offers vehicles noone else does. Highly recommended.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An excellent source for all those materials needed for making nice terrain pieces
