A thread for all things Quar by Zombiesmith
« on: November 25, 2022, 02:34:27 PM »
I have to admit being a bit obsessed…

https://thegrumpygnome.home.blog/2022/11/25/and-my-mysterious-new-project-is-quitegrimsical-it-is-the-quar/

So I thought it might be nice to document my 28mm Quar project here as well as encourage other Quar lovers to post.

Superb!! I will be following your blog with great interest. I love Quar, such a brilliant back story and some great miniatures, I have a project on the go and will be adding more. Love to see how others do. :)

It has been a real pleasure seeing how other Quar projects have developed. I compiled a list of things I found useful online, including a few Quar galleries.

I have absolutely no intention of getting into any other projects at this time so will live my Quar adventures vicariously through you.

Can't wait.

I think I am driving Mrs. GG a bit mad with my anxiously impatient waiting.

One of my online mates is sending me some older 28mm Quar tractors. Another of my online mates was going to send me a platoon of Quar from an unfinished project but can not now find them in his workshop.

And given the time of year the Christmas gift orders folks have made for me directly from Zombiesmith on Black Friday are going to take quite some time to be delivered.

I have tried several online places to track down second hand Quar to buy or trade without success. This has been made a bit more difficult by me not being on Twitter, Reddit, Facebook or Discord.

As for adding new projects I totally understand. I am going to cease a couple of other projects to do this one. My Twilight '49 Weird War 2 Post-apoc project, my Tarnished Splendor Napoleonic Project, my Zulu War project, my AWI project, perhaps even my French Indochina project.

A few years ago I raided Noble Knight games and ordered about three different times from them, good price and quick delivery but they haven't had any in for a long time now, I check periodically.  No use to you I know but always worth keeping an eye open. They come up so very rarely, people buy them and keep them and who can blame them!! I got a whole load of Crusaders from ebay from France but that seems to have been a one off. Keep on checking your usual sites and who knows, other than that it roll on Christmas and hopefully you will have loads of Quar!! :)

Looking forward to seeing your work.  I added some terrain for my Quar and got them based up today.

I too have joined the ranks. I placed an order for 15mm Quar.
Looking forward to getting them.

I was going to go down the 15mm route but plumped for 28mm, be interested to see your work on the 15mm Quar when they arrive.

The 15mm is pretty tempting but all my terrain is 28mm and the plastic 28mm Quar being right around the corner convinced me to go 28mm. Still keen to see what folks do with the 15mm Quar. Joshua's world building is as cool as his designs for the Quar themselves.

I would have done 28mm but I hate gluing figures together.

With the metals, for the most part it’s just a case of gluing the head into the pre drilled hole.  Some even have the heads already attached.
