You have lots of great figures.
There are so many different sub periods to go with moderns.
I find I jump from one thing to another.
Don't really have enough painted to play a decent sized game.

Thanks.

I find the same thing, Prelude to Woodbury is possibly the only set of figures fully painted, all six of them ^___^.

The work Wyrmalla has been showing on his thread has inspired me to start on the kit I bought a while back.

It is not as good a kit as the Imprint/Empress ones.

Hah, the Empress one comes with seat backs - Spectre's doesn't. :)

The gun's a bit small on that 1/48th chassis though. There is a 1/48th one out there, but I guess you use what you have.

If I was doing an airborne force I'd have one, then cover it in stowage and a few Red Star tank riders.

Thanks.

@Wymalla: not quite sure what I am doing with it, it could be for Twilight 2000 to provide some fire support for some UnderFire Russians or it could be for some militia for my imagi-nation.

That affects the stowage options.

I have seen some photographs of them in full bag lady mode - shopping trolley armour stuffed with bags of stuff.

Not quite sure if that would work for both periods.

Oh, and does anyone know when the blue chemical drums became common?

I was wondering about using them for storage.

I could find a background on plastic drums, but nothing on when they came into use - other than post 1960.

https://www.bluebarrelsystems.com/blog/history-blue-plastic-barrel/

There's some international standard and naming conventions mentioned in that article, so I guess if you search those there might be some legislation which'll crop up. I'd guess 1970s onward would cover the initial lot, then maybe a bit later for things to become formal (no idea though).
