Tango, you must have awoke early this morning to see these.

It is so annoying. I always think that the rotation of the earth means I will get these before you.

So, today, (It was a quiet spell at work) one of the lads was operating…I was "supervising"…..which was a chance to check TMP on the OR PC…

Touche. (Grin)

Sounds as though von W might have beaten you to it…… allowing for the rotation of the earth…

But I will bet Perrys will welcome the publicity..

All of you, keep up the good work. Contribute, post, complain, take the flak when it comes, disagree and abuse each other for fun, what the heck,……

Yeah these are just great, might pick up a few just to paint.

Tango0101 Mar 2017 10:26 p.m. PST

Well… I put more pics… (smile)

These look great. Hope they are not as badly cast as the Royal Marines.

Dave Jackson Supporting Member of TMP02 Mar 2017 7:25 a.m. PST

Yes…..uuuuggghhh…….they are tempting……maybe a force for "Sharp Practice"…..

Interested by and welcome Three Armies' comment.

We all know what happens to he who sticks his head over the parapet.

But we do rarely hear negative views about new releases….and we surely should. Obviously Perrys cannot possibly be criticised (I know how much we owe them) and, even allowing for their Dragoons of the Guard, their work is flawless….generally

A force for Sharp Practice, wow that's a great idea! Would you use the French Revolutionary list or the French: The Glory Years list? Or should it be somewhere in between those two lists? Hmmm…

I love the Perry stuff, I can only aspire to get anywhere near them, but for me the casting quality of the British Marines I received was poor imho. Cant fault the sculpture. I looking forward to recieving my camels like everyone else.

Tempted to send a personal message, but, what the heck, this we need to see more of. I have no idea at all whether you are right, but better this than a dozen responses without serious analysis. Brave man……

Three Armies Supporting Member of TMP02 Mar 2017 5:47 p.m. PST

Not sure what you mean? Like I said it's only an opinion it matters not if I'm right or more probably wrong. I still buy the figures anyway! The Twins are already aware, both myself and others have made it known to them personally about casting issues. The sculpting however you cannot fault.

I'm NOT going to do Napoleon in Egypt.

No. Not never.

Camels, though…. this stirs my nostalgia again. Memories of an old Military Modelling and a "How to Convert" series, including one on how to make a dromedary trooper by mounting a rider made from Historex spares on a Britains zoo camel.

Maybe just the one pack?

(Slightly disturbed, Deadhead, at the thought of you TMP-ing in theatre! Glad that wasn't an option 50+ years ago when I needed the attentions of a good ENT man.)

"Maybe just the one pack?"

Or two?

(in the voice of Gollum)

Go AWAY! We don't wants it, precious!

Tango0103 Mar 2017 10:35 a.m. PST

Glad you like them too boys!. (smile)

Just to Three Armies, I guess….

For once a hint of criticism appears here. How welcome I do find that.

I doubt Les Perrys have a more fervent fan comme mois, mais they can, just occasionally get it wrong, je pense. I did think your comment was almost unique on this forum. Adulation is great, but let us all feedback when we are let down and disappointed.

I had imagined some very bad tempered feedback. I was wrong. Either folk have grown up or the whole forum is getting worryingly quieter, anyway

Tango0103 Mar 2017 10:44 p.m. PST

Thanks for that!… (smile)
