Finally, I've added a new section: August 6, A whole lot of new models this month. Finally, I've added the first shots of a new section -- 10mm American Civil War. June 26, OK, a variety of new models. First off, some random additions to the modern UK section -- including Skytrex Warriors ugh!
I've also added a generic Arab page. Basically, these are units designed to be used as Egyptians, Iraqis, Syrians Finally, there are a slew of new Czech models from Shapeways. In addition, there are several shots of various US vehicles. May 27, Been away from this for a while, off running a road race in Massachusetts. April 18, First up, a major news item. I would rather we were making new models than duplicating what already exists.
While we lose one manufacturer, the loss is not remarkably significant -- the range has been stagnant for years and some of its models are of questionable value. While GHQ continues to do excellent work, a little competition is likely to ensure that continues.
I have to say I'm excited about it. Now for the usual update. First, many thanks to Mike Jope, who went through many of the unknown and misidentified models. I've updated with his changes. As for new models, I've added a slew of new ISM Soviet models to the moderns section -- though I have to say that I'm not sure on the identity of all of them.
The variety of Soviet sub-models of various tanks along with ISM's "creativity" creates a fair bit of uncertainty. March 28, Another organizational change -- I've broken up the modern Soviet page into two parts, because it was just getting way, way too long.
There are links within the pages. As for new models, here they are: Far more models have added on the modern side. A great model that fills a gaping hole. March 14, Alright, a bit of a change in the organization of the site. The US modern section was getting way too large, so I'm splitting it into two parts. The existing page will be focused on the Cold War and its immediate aftermath, while the new page, tenatively titled the US Army in the 21st Century , will be focused on current US Army equipment, particularly that which has served in the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, though not limited to it.
Most aircraft, with a few exceptions, will continue to appear on the original page. In addition, I've been attempting to update the Excel file containing the my full inventory, split out by nation.
Currently, I'm only addings models that have been painted up, leaving aside a massive amount of unpainted inventory. A link can be found on the left side of this page. Finally, as a housekeeping item, I've deleted all the "What's New" items from prior to -- it was getting a bit out of hand. OK, now for the meat of this week's updates.
Far more models for the WWII collection, mainly aircraft. February 7, A bunch of new models, including more from Shapeways. January 21, Happy Belated New Year! Far more models on the WWII side. November 30, A whole slew of new models have been added. In addition, I've also updated the section covering Fred Oliver's conversions. November 9, I've added a whole slew of excellent conversions done by Fred Oliver to a new section. I've used new software HTTPhoto to create albums; if anyone has a problem getting it to work, please let me know.
In addition, there a shots of various and assorted field artillery, GHQ's Calliope and 2. October 10, The big addition this week is the GHQ al Qaeda combat command, along with a bunch of other vehicles to flesh it out, in its new section.
September 20, I've added a new review of the excellent Battle of Britain set from Raiden Miniatures. In related news, Raiden Miniatures has apparently been bought by I Enterprises, the excellent manufacturer of numerous decal sets and Panzer Keepers. Check it out, an excellent model.
September 7, Not a lot of new painted models this week, but a whole heck of a lot of new ISM photos. Many thanks to all of you who submitted suggestions for the unknown models; I'll be updating that page shortly. August 23, OK, the big news here is that I've added at least 60 new ISM items to the that section, and am now far closer to cataloguing the full range. That said, there are still a lot of models from the company that I can't identify. I've created a page for them; if you have any ideas, go ahead and email me.
After all, I have to have something for the Americans and Brits to shoot up I've also added a good half-dozen completed models to the plastic aircraft section and to their appropriate sections , including Vought Corsairs, F6F Wildcats, and a bunch of Japanese aircraft.
August 2, I've finally gotten around to updating the battlefield accessories page, adding items from a dozen manufacturers.
I've also added the link to the page to the list on the left. I've also added my first models from Raiden, which are a tremendous combination of good quality and low pricing: On the modern side, I's decals have allowed me to create a North Korean Mig set, listed under Warsaw Pact models, perhaps the start of a new collection.
July 20, Added some updates to the plastic aircraft section and the ISM section. More to come in both over the enext few days. July 11, New this month: June 15, I've added my first review , a new feature.
I've also added photos of their UK Mastiff. June 1, Not an officially monthly update, just added a bunch of stuff to the plastic aircraft section. May 4, I've had some camera problems over the last two months, but I'm sorting them out, and should have a very large update in the next few weeks. I've got an absolute ton of new models done, just awaiting the camera. For now, I've added a few more models and done some reorganization and updating. In addition, I've begun a Battlefield Accessories page, though it only has a few items on it so far.
It now includes a review of a number of plastic aircraft by a variety of manufactures, including Nichimo, Toko, F-Toys, and others, and is much larger. In addition, I'll have a number of adds in coming months. Plus all sorts of US Ms and M60s, along with a variety of support vehicles. Also added GHQ I think The support weapons will be coming shortly. December 12, A bit delayed this month well, very delayed Plus CinC's 40mm bofors for the UK. Also CinC Jaguars for France. August 12, Numerous new models added.
For the Japanese , Te-Ke Tankettes and several types of late war self-propelled guns. The Italians get an Aspide missile system. The line is reasonably well developed, but the models are not great.
July 20, A horde of new M1s of various makes, from the excellent to the wretched. June 13, A slew of new models this month.
Many new Israeli models including some finished a while ago, but never posted. I've made a change in the way I'm painting models these days. I'm now using a light brown wash of regular acrylic paint for dirtying up the running gear for vehicles, then using a dark umber ink over the whole model.
While it looks odd at times in the close up photos, it looks quite good from a distance. May 10, I'm now working on microarmor in earnest -- I've gotten over models built and painted in the last month.
There should be regular updates over the next month. Also note that the new advertiser above -- Noble Knight Games, a great gaming resource and a stockist of the GHQ line. February 20, After another long pause, I'm back to collecting and painting microarmor. I looked at my collection at the end of last summer, and realized that I had something on the order of vehicles and aircraft unpainted. A big part of these came from a pair of massive eBay lots I won two years ago and they were shockingly cheap.
Many of the newly acquired pieces, plus others, were duplicates of those that I already had. I decided to cease purchasing additional models for a year so I could work on the backlog. I have made some progress, but the downside is that I was mainly painting and basing vehicles already on this site.
I still have six months to go on my "no new models" buying vow. That said, I have a fair collection of new additions to the site, and hope to have more over the coming months. Among the new adds: Drop me a line at admin microarmormayhem.
