My new toys for my latest fad - WW2 Convoys - have started arriving. I had a bit of a quandary to begin with - trying to decide which scale to use - 1/3000th or 1/6000th? I used 1/6000th for my modern naval (with the superb Shipwreck rules from Vandering Publications); the detail is fantastic on them, but they are soooo tiny:
So I thought I'd go for 1/3000th this time. My first toys came from Mick Yarrow Miniatures. Although the site looks (to me anyway!) abandoned, Mick is producing the mini's and provides a very quick service - I ordered the following on a Thursday and and they arrived on the Saturday. As Mick's site is short on pics, I thought I'd post pics of the packs I got here (in the pics the label is 63mm across to give you an idea of their size):
Compared to Navwar and Skytrex, Mick's miniatures are very cheap and very nice castings - the exception being 3238 Royal Sovereign BB class Norway 1940 which was quite a messy casting :( However, Mick very kindly put in the SS Eridan as a freebie, so I am more than satisfied with my toys and will certainly buy from Mick again!
Next time I'll post pics of my Navwar toys
