Hey all,

I recently got back to historical miniatures gaming after a long hiatus, and started a Spanish Civil War project. I ended up choosing 10mm and Pendraken, and the sculpt and casting quality on the range has been great- a real pleasure to paint those. 10mm seems to be a nice scale to build armies in general, so maybe I'll branch into something else after the SCW forces are finished.

So, I'll be looking forward to sharing my progress with the project and hearing your comments. I heard from a reliable source that this is a nice forum. :)

Hi Villev,

in my experience the forum is by turns warm, welcoming, well read, willing to share and, as the first response to your post shows, well weird. :)

As a bunch we are keen to read about what others are working on and are even keener on pictures of progress.

If you are looking for advice at any point just ask. You may find that we wander off topic sometimes quite a bit but if that happens before you get a sensible answer posting a gently worded reminder should steer it back on track.

Also, trust me, the in jokes will become apparent in time :)  But feel free to ask if you feel you may be missing something vital.

Cheers and thanks for the welcome (to everyone else also). Positive weird is a plus definitely, so sounds even better. And to be honest, I heard that too in advance. :D

Welcome Villev :-h

There are some people here with a lot of knowledge on the SCW as I found while considering an SCW project. They were very helpful and there are several threads you may find useful

Nice! Thanks for the tip, I'll surely make use of that. It's a conflict with a bit less readily available materials compared to many of the ones that are more popular among wargamers.
