    greetings from darkest Suffolk.

    like a lot of people here I'm picking up this hobby after many years of absence, I'm build a few bits and bobs but my main interest (currently) are 54mm Napoleonic figures.

    i hope to become more engaged as things progress and I'm sure I'll have some questions, things have clearly moved on since I last picked up a paint brush!

    cheers Dave

    Welcome aboard Dave :)

    As a fairly recent returnee myself it was a bit of a shock how much had changed with standards now reaching ridiculous levels and t'interweb providing loads of information to say nothing of acrylics, aftermarket bits and bobs etc. etc.

    Loads of helpful folks on here so don't hesitate to ask if you want to know something. (I'm presuming you are aware of the lovely 54's available from El Greco, Historex and Troop 54?)

    All the best

    Hi Paul

    acrylics... who knew!

    yes I've been checking out the makes you mention, Historex were one of the main source of models back in the day. I have my eye on a few (well quite a few) pieces from Metal Models as well, a lot of choice these days all available by the click of a mouse.

    cheers
    Dave
