I seem to remember a picture of a marine in battledress with a layout of the various types of weapons and equipment they carry (PGMPs, tacnuke launchers, grav belts, etc). Does anyone now what pic that was from?

I think you miss the point here. The point of the collectible plastic minis is that you use them as they are, and that's why they're not made out of material that's made to be modded or painted over (presumably it keeps the cost down too). Rakham pre-painted figures (e.g. AT-43 and Confrontation) t...

Hmmmm... Paper minis? Well, to be honest, I rather liked the Cardboard Heroes sheets that came with Steve Jackson Games deck plans and I rather wished that they had published more of them. (They do wear out after a while.). Given the glut of actual, official Traveller minis, they were and still are ...

OK, if you want pre-paints, can we at least have them made with a higher quality plastic that holds the detail of the original mold better than the softer rubberized plastics and can take a coat of primer in case I do want to modify the paint job? But whatever happens, no collectible miniatures... P...

After some time to sleep and to cool off, I given this matter some more thought. I concede that this is a essentially a Coke Vs. Pepsi argument; a pure matter of taste with no real "right" or "wrong" party. Sturn and others like their collectible, pre-painted figures... fine. I and some others like ...

So those of us with jobs and familys and only limited gameing time are all "To lazy". Some of us can and and do pace ourselves. I meet with my friends at the FLGS Tuesdays to paint and model. Saturday nights I game. (OT: And please don't play the "family" card on me, because it won't score any symp...

So, I took some more of my time to try to make my previous points more clear. Well, I hate to say it, but you wasted you're time because you didn't convince me in the least. Crappy quality? Ummmm... yes. Compared to Reaper? Compared to Games Workshop? Compared to Wargames Foundry? Compared to Perry...

OK, maybe that was a little heavy. I'm sorry. I JUST HATE COLLECTIBLE BENDY FIGS! For me, the modeling and painting portions of the gaming hobby are part of the fun. I love showing off a great paint job or being able to kit bash a unique figure, then using it in a game I like. The pre-paints rob me ...

I can't believe what I am reading here... Bendy-plastic, pre-painted, collectible miniatures are, and forever shall be, CRAP. They are poorly molded, poorly painted (need I remind you of BF: EVO?), and can not be modified or re-painted to a degree to make them look any less like some cheap toy you g...

So... If some one demands some quality rather than the garbage that we usually get, you're declared "manic."

Re: The NEXT STEP: Maps & Minis

Just for the record, I didn't mention anything in my post about collectable miniature games but since the subject has been raised, thats another consideration. No no no no NO! I will NOT see Traveller stoop to the level of CMGs with the poor-paint jobs, crappy "bendy" plastic, and having to buy pac...

Well, Mongoose is going to have Iron Wind to produce ACTA miniatures, it shouldn't be a far leap to get them to produce Traveller miniatures.

Personally, I prefer Traveller. Just about anything else would probably be a deal breaker for me.

With the announcement of BEVO: Modern, I've had a wonderful grinchy idea:

BF:EVO-2300AD! Think about it: hover tanks, combat walkers, and Kafers! (Oh my!)

Tuesdays would be right out for me, That is my miniature gaming night and I try to never miss it. Otherwise, Mondays and Thursdays would rock.

BTW, what continent are you on? I'm in the States.
