I will be doing a book signing at the Rochester Models Bolt Action club Wednesday 22nd in the evening from about 6pm onwards. There will a display of models and the club will be playing a few games.
Andy Singleton, the professional model painter, whose art has graced the Warlord Games website will also be present to talk about his work.

See you there: John Lambshead
Ronin and Daisho.
The models are the usual multi (almost)fit: I found it useful to sometimes cut the hands to rotate them.
The results are not bad.
If I start playing one of these games seriously I will probably buy a few metal premium models but these will do as a starter and will eventually gravitate to a KoW Army.
WF produce mounted cavalry and Ashigura with guns/bows and spears so £40 will buy an army.
Recommended (with caveats).

Note light is a relative term. It weighs in at 38-42 tonnes. A Sherman tank weighed 30 tonnes so in WWII terms it should be classed as a medium. A Challenger II is 63 tonnes but I suspect the MBT is about to go the way of the battleship.

On the right a squad of young gangers with sophisticated rail guns - low tech civilian weapons. Note the more yellow brighter skin of the younger Boromite. The guns are made from metallised ceramics.
I chose an orange colour scheme because these are mining workers, not soldiers, but any military equipment is in metallised hues.
