A few dealers import surplus stuff for sale on the collectors market.
About the only time in recent history that the US military has bought British "surplus" was the harrier gr.9 deal

By going hell for leather down the m1/a1. Anything else means you get bombed to shit but if you force the Lincolnshire bases out of the picture and can reach London you have something resembling a chance.

Fantasywise, I'm completely satisfied with Kings of War. I took a look at AoS but I found both the over-the-top lore and aesthetics and the rules (which seem to suffer from the same special rules bloat as 40k) unappealing at first glance. I have little hopes in the new edition of 40k, as I expect G...

I got soo excited when they showed the imperial guardsmen in that animation, thinking it was going to be the reveal of a new Cadian line or something. And then they died. Also your welcome, thought i might as well just dump it all into one post so its easier to keep track of for people. Its to firm...

Would using Marines in the DRC ever make sense? as said it depends on the marines in question and how they fit in your national military. Are they a key part of your national rapid reaction capability? Are they fairly restricted in their role and capabilities? Have you looked at a map of the DRC an...

Now that the warhammer conquest series is at an end for me and my brother, we were thinking of maybe getting started on the Age of Sigmar version, Mortal Realms and begin collecting them. The two armies you get with it seem to be the Stormcast Eternals and Nighthaunt. I'd fancy the Nighthaunt mysel...

Pfffft, Equilibrium had a better basis for an almost feasible bull shit explanation of how to avoid bullets ie don't be where people are shooting at. Leaving that aside if you can keep moving and low enough you can make yourself a very difficult target. An unpredictable target that is shooting back ...

No reason why you shouldn't. SoBs fit in just well as any other imperial soup ingredient fluff wise. The guard could have ...

Not meaning to be insulting but do you really not know the basics of modern boby armour? In short its a mix of specialist man made fibres, often grouped together as "kevlar" although this covers a range of different materials and construction techniques. Commonly known as "soft"...

Just finished reading a report on the M-16 and the bureaucratic issues behind it which made it fail so spectacularly in Vietnam. Torn between seething rage for idiot Ordnance Corps commanders and pity for their legacy after having served their countries for so long. Oh well, that's what happens tho...

today in idt: 1mm steel chain > 10mm mauser purpelia is now manokan 2 That's quite the insult. Still, you do make a good point. One question though: what do they make modern body armor out of? It's not metal, so what material do they use that's light enough to allow the soldier some semblance of mo...

Why were breechloader conversions, like the Snider, Wanzl, Tabatiere, etc replaced so soon after entering service?

AAI SPIW then Obviously the G11 is the best option, but you mentioned an overbarell grenade launcher, so maybe look at the XM29 or Daewoo K11. Just what I was looking for. I’ll use the M16 as a standard issue rifle for New England soldiers and the more advanced stuff for my Rocket Commando Corp. If...
