New Terrain Guy Sale

Speak of the devil, and he doth appear. The Terrain Guy blasted out a new e-mail about a straight 20% sale, although only on selected products. Looks like he is now an MBA retailer, with much of his stock at 20% off. Not bad, although I wasn't crazy about the 15mm MBA townhouses I bought from WarWeb. However, his wonderful hills are on sale, too...also, although not on sale, he has now included nicely thin 6mm roads...

New Terrain Guy Terrain

The Terrain Guy recently ran a summer sale which amounted to about 20% off. Actually, it was $20 off of a $100 order. What this amounted to was me making sure my order exceeded $100 by as little as possible-- I'm sure he would have made more money had it been a straight 20% off. Let that be a lesson to you retailers. Anyway, I have been really pleased with his terrain mat and hills, so this time I went for roads, fields and hedges. Overall, I'm pretty pleased, although not quite bowled over like I was with the mat and hills.

Battlefront, bah!

I've got my Flames of War Pak 40s out on the table and have slowly been poking at them a bit. This guy was a little irritating-- he has half a shell, inserting the round into the breech. Only, he's like a scale foot too high. Considering the fact that I could have bought nice Old Glory figures for about 1/3rd of the cost of these, it's something I don't really think I should have to deal with. I think I can work with it by sanding the base a bit, bending the angle down slightly, and putting the gun up on blocks before texturing the base. I had already decided to go Old Glory for transports; sounds like I will for guns, too!
