Re: Wargame Miniatures

I'd be very surprised if Battlefront corporate HQ doesn't have some sort of hosted events or tournaments. If it isn't too far away, you should consider looking into that. They may even do free demo games and such, like Games Workshop does. It's pretty much the opposite end of the country. 600 miles...

Re: Post Requirement Complete

Hello there.

Username: Thamerwaste

Going to be interesting reacquainting myself with the game. Have not played in a while.
Used to be (Still am listed as) a mod on a semi-popular server, but this one is completely different.

Hope to have fun with all of you.

Re: Wargame Miniatures

When it comes to cost, eBay is your friend there. I like to buy old, used minis and refurbish them. It's more labor intensive, but if it's a hobby you enjoy anyway that isn't a problem. Not much in the way of things I'd want on the NZ equivalent of EBay, but there are some interesting things. http:...

Re: Wargame Miniatures

Yeah then you really COULD do the Battle of Trafalgar!

First I need to win the lottery. :lol:


Expensive hobby indeed.


I should try making my own miniatures. Since I generally have no-one to play with, it would be more for diorama purposes anyway.

Re: Wargame Miniatures

That's really awesome! I have a copy of the starter set for Sails of Glory . I don't know how the scale compares with the one you found, but I think SoG is bigger (meaning bigger ship models but smaller battles) Sails of Glory seems to be 1/1000, the ones I linked are 1/3000, so 3 times smaller. Wo...

Re: Wargame Miniatures

Not only that, but there are other manufacturers who make WWII miniatures in 15mm scale which work perfectly fine with Flames of War, and are even cheaper. I have a few T-34 tanks from Battlefront and from a less expensive manufacturer, and there's slightly less detail, but the tank is still perfec...

Re: Wargame Miniatures

The other big one is Flames of War, which is a 15mm WWII game by Battlefront. That one's good for much larger battles. They're actually based in New Zealand so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding games! Just looking at the range of Flames of War, it has a nice variety. Some of the items I m...

Re: Wargame Miniatures

I had collected Lord of the Rings Warhammer for years, including the magazine series. Ended up giving up due to not having anyone around to do anything with, as in rural New Zealand, people are more concerned with other things. I have been recently looking into historical miniatures, and might start...

Games You Find Yourself Going Back To

For everyone there are games that we hold dear in out hears, they may not be a favourite, or the best game, but we find ourselves going back to them time and time again to play them. These may be because of emotional attachment, or nostalgia, or just enjoying it. I have a few, which are not the best...

Re: What was the last game you played?

Emperor: Rise of the Middle Kingdom

Best game ever in my opinion. Shame it hasn't been digitally released. The best of the Sierra city building series (Caesar/Pharaoh/Zeus)

Re: What song are you listening to?

Selected Ambient Works 85-92 by Aphex Twin.



Quite a few of these songs are common in the background of TV programs. I enjoy listening to it in the background when doing things that would otherwise be distracted with music with voices.

Re: What was the last TV show you watched?

Just finished watching 11.22.63

About a man who has to go back in time to stop the JFK assassination.
Based on a book by Stephen King.

Rather interesting.

Re: What was the last movie you watched?

Hackers (1995)

Cheesy movie. If you know anything about computers, it becomes a whole lot more comical, as it has typical Hollywood over-dramatization of everything.

First movie that Angelina Jolie stared in, if I remember correctly.

Re: Whatcha reading???

The Last Don by Mario Puzo, as I have been going through all the godfather books again, and the related mafia ones.


The Bible as History by Werner Keller, I found a first edition version at a book fair, and have been reading through it, as I have an interest in archaeology, and it's very in depth.
