Wishful Thinking

Posted by PDA on 23 Nov 2016, 00:09

Apologies if this is in the wrong section.

I haven't seen any "Wish Lists" for a long time, so thought I might start one here. Shall we say, 5 items on your list? Here are my 5, in no particular order:

1/72 WW1 French Saint Chamond Tank (with a couple of crew figures or half figures)
1/72 WW1 French Schneider CA1 Tank (with a couple of crew figures or half figures)
1/72 WW1 British Tank Mark V (with a couple of crew figures or half figures)
1/72 WW1 French Senegalese Tirailleurs
1/72 WW1 French Spahis

I have no preference for who might make them; all of the companies have upped their game in terms of quality. (Also, I would hate to see people taking jabs at any company; can we stay positive, please)

First off, I would buy everything on PDA`s list, my five, in no particular order,1) LRDG figures for the Dragon trucks , plus on road watch etc 2) A good quality British Paratrooper set of heavy weapons including a vickers machine gun, 3in mortar and a six pounder anti tank gun, with a 70/30 mix of helmets/berets 3) One for the cottage industry guys, a set of wounded being evacuated from the hospital at Rorkes drift, my conversions are not good enough, a good sculptor needs to pick this up and run with it. 4) Colonial war wagons in plastic, both Boer ox wagon and British general service wagon 5) I hear the groans already.........Zulu warriors in regimental dress, this of course could be several sets, but one of any of the big regiments would do to start with.

there's always Napoleonic wants but most of my major needs are covered or on the way. So my list is:

British dragoons for the Jacobite rebellion.
British artillery for above.
Jacobite cavalry.
Jacobite artillery.
No.5 is a toss up between an A7V and Dutch/Belgian Carabiniers, though I will have a look to see if anyone has the old Emhar model.

I'm happy to get the sets I want from any company but I will say that the two companies that made the Jacopbite Rebellion sets I have so far made a lovely job of them. more of the same would be fine.
