    one I have to admit these were clean castings I could not find a mould line to speak of or any areas of flash which for me is great because I like to get on with painting the figures not spending ages trimming and filing away lead I just wish that all manufacturers sent figures out this clean but that s dreaming PAINTING My usual grey primer was liberally slapped onto the figures after a quick wash in some hot soapy water They looked amazing and all the details really stood out While this was drying I had a read of the detailed background information supplied with the review figures to aid the review I took notes and duly disregarded everything contained in the documents except hair colour notes as this seemed to have a bit of a bearing on the characters themselves The painting itself was a relatively straight forward affair after I decided what colours to use I dress my figures so the faces were first followed by the armour and then the outer garments Each colour received three highlights to achieve the final look SUMMING UP These are very well sculpted miniatures full of details and very

    the willingness of so many to do so is an indication of the health of the society There are two editions of LW the World edition and the North American edition which was started to support the growing North American membership Whilst both editions are similar in content they feature items of more local interest alongside the common content The advisors service is another example of the membership participating actively in the association Advisors are members who have volunteered to help other members find the answer to wargaming related questions in a particular period of interest They also act as a contact point for members with similar interests A wide variety of subjects are covered by the advisors from the ACW to Celtic History and Mythology And all for the price of a stamp or increasingly an e mail Similarly the ADCs are members who will again for only the price of a stamp act as outside agents of change in a campaign A campaign problem can be outlined to one or more ADCs who will then offer a choice of possibilities based on the information they have been provided with Suddenly that rash general starts acting in the truly rash manner he s always wanted to or that cowardly Prince shows his real colours once and for all The SWA library is described as probably the largest wargaming lending library in the world Rules boardgames books magazines are all available to borrow as usual for the cost of postage alone Annual lists of what s available are published in LW with regular updates when new items are donated to the scheme Other fringe benefits of the SWA are a range of discounts with well known wargaming traders and the opportunity to take part in the SWA tournament This is
