Dude, i had no idea! Sorry!

I honestly just picked a random figure from those you had photographed to complain about, without actually looking at them. It could just as easily have been the 2para figure, all i wanted to do was gently poke fun at paul's criticism, and sound a bit like a Sgt Major, i hadn't even noticed that he was crooked. And i would never poke fun at a crippled war vet!

You must have spent the entire weekend thinking we were a bunch of twats! I actually feel quite bad. Your photographs are great, and a lot of hard work. Don't feel bad. I'M NOT AN EVIL PERSON! honestly.

However, the colour of your shelf sucks! I mean, seriously, What is that, fake elm colour. Just awful! :-D

and please. WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK OF THE BLOODY TABLE?

Cheers!

Re the table Hopper. Excellent, but because I'm not a member of that freeshare site, I'm just too lazy to join up and actually see it. I imagine a lot of the rest of us are just as lazy.

Any chance you could save the doc as an interchangeable j-peg and then post it as a regular pic for our viewing pleasures.


Many thanks again!

Hopper, I've been around here long enough to KNOW that everyone is a bunch of twats! Lovely twats, but twats nonetheless! And i'm proud to be one of them! :-D

I know your taking the piss, but the fashion police have been on the phone and suggested that I point out that that is actually my corner cabinet at work. Very fashionable apparently. When they bought it in 1973.

you don't need to be a member, that's why i chose zshare.

And besides, i don't know how to create a 'interminable tentpeg'.

Just downloaded the table Hopper (after navigatin my way around the pics of lasses that have lost weight and the various Russian brides for sale!) and I like it! It makes a lot more sense when seen in a table, than when listing, as finally HM1 etc makes sense. In the end we should be able to possibly drop it into a format that allows links to pics of each headmould etc, and the figs that used it, but for a WIP, it's looking good mate!

Got a crazy busy week this week, but will try to start on shelf 2 in the next day or two (with the correct weapons Paul - just to keep the OCD at bay!! ;-) )

Excellent!

Yeah, as long as we know we are on the right track, the finished product can be tattooed on the back of your new russian bride if you want mate! ;-)

No rush for Shelf 2, i've got crazy amounts on at the mo!

V.2 has a list of accessories incorporated into the table, i'll upload the results soon enough.

Cheers.

This table is lovely Hopper. Great work!

Personally, I would argue that the variants of Artic and Mountain & Arctic Assault with no red insignia are merely paint errors, not actual variants.

We haven't 'done' the mail away Commander but there is a variant 'pilot' body of him.

I have no evidence, but I would guess at there 'possibly' being a black hands variant of the black frogman and maybe an alternate helmet version of the US Para, but I am jumping ahead a little here.....

Still, great stuff Hopper!
