By way of colour chart I mean a proper chart that refernces specific paint colours either by paint manufactuer or by international colour codes either way they can then be cross referenced easy enough. But you are right merely posting a colour sample would not suffice.

I shoul dalso point out the other problem I have is that I live in Papua New Guinea, there are no hobby stores in Papua New Guinea. I get all my stuff sent up form Australia so a colour chart is what I need or at least would be handy.

Although close enough can good enough the whites and reds on the FORTH could be a problem. These two colours are not easy to match, the slightest difference can look pretty bad and colour charts are often ink colour which are not always a true representation.

Prepaint Colour Chart

I have been missing from the boards for a long time, really hanging back for SSTEvo and dropping in from time to time. I have been complacent about the delays and accept the game will arrive when it arrives. I am not sure if the question has been asked in my absence or not. While looking at Poi's po...

Has anybody got any pics of the Navwar range. I love the look of the GHQ but for the price of one ship I can get a whole Fleet Pack from Navwar. Just nor sure on the quality. Pics and comments would be appreciated

I see terrain as a main play in many scenarios. Certainly for Pacific campaings, small Islands, land based air attacks on shipping, tropical reefs in places they are not supposed to be etc. For Europe what about big mother German Krupp shore batteries pounding away at shipping. Not to mention fictio...

I'm looking forward to the air rules. Living in the middle of where a lot of the Pacific action took place means I will be playing mostly US and Japanese ships. We have a WWII wreck in our harbour, actually many around here but this one is visable. The MV McDhui a supply ship was sunk by Japanese bo...

Hey Scip, any tuna where you are? Hi knuckles!!!! Just one. Her name is Doris, she's about 60, and she wears too much make-up, smokes too much, and insists on wearing spandex. What really creeps me out is that she insists on calling me "Honey" in that raspy cigarette voice. She really would be bett...

Yep can see the craters, looks good, I like the way you have doen the hills so the raised part hits the edge of the hex in the same place. Try some internal curves as well to help break up the landscape.

Nice Idea but there seem to be a lot of small flat hexes. I notice the raised ones, perhaps some large area carved to fit hexes rather than just several small, or stackable with a locating hole you can put a dowl rod through to hold in place. Not being critical, I like it, I'm just trying to put for...

Good point when you are producing that many a few mold lines and a couple of gaps don't mater a diddly. What's your opinion of the prepainted SST Evo after painting so many bugs. You obviously enjoy the painting side of the hobby and you have gone for an outside the square colour scheme. Would repai...
