    Speaking ENTIRELY objective here, and not pointing ANY fingers at Red King or anyone else…

    Prussian Blue is supremicst code word.  (Look it up if you don’t believe me).

    The term is used as a symbol of verification amongst supremists that the holocaust didn’t happen…  The arguement is that Zyklon B leaves a blue hue or residue on things like tile floors after it’s been used, that’s otherwise impossible to remove.  The “Gas” chambers have NO evidence of this “Blueing” thus the term Prussian Blue exists in one purpose as a symbol to suggesstion that the Nazi party was innocent.

    For any nay sayers about to explode in laughter at my claims, before you do, look up the white supremist teen pop band “Prussian Blue” and read why they chose their name.

    hmm… I’ll even post you a wiki link!

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prussian_Blue

    “There is also the discussion of the lack of ‘Prussian Blue’ coloring (Zyklon B residue) in the so-called gas chambers in the concentration camps. We think it might make people question some of the inaccuracies of the ‘Holocaust’ myth.”[4] This is a reference to the claims[8][9][10] made by many Holocaust deniers that the Holocaust either could not have happened as historians and observers have asserted or that the number of victims could have been far lower.

    Oh and I am NOT at liberty to address ANY questions as to why I am familiar with this information, the Jobbik of Hungary, or the Syrian Socialist National party…

    With all that said… Count me in line for a Prussian blue set as well. 😄

    Oh yeah, I saw a 20/20 interview with the blonde twin girls that sing in Prussian Blue. They were really cute but the stuff that came out of their mouths was outlandish. It was weird to hear such things coming from what seemed like such sweet girls.



  • Yeah.

    Neither my politics nor my taste in music fits with that stream of “thought”.

    Obviously, the pigment predates its co-opting. There’s other hilarious things about how the long forgotten Old Prussians got their name borrowed and battered, but I’m really just interested in the historic Kaiser Wilhelm associations.

    Lost in all this is my question about the availability of hex triplets, which I probably shouldn’t have put in this thread. Sorry.

  • Customizer

    I have an idea for a piece to include. Not sure if it would fit right in the next Axis Minors set or perhaps a possible future German expansion set.

    It’s the Me-323 Gigant transport plane, the largest load bearing plane of the war.



  • what happened to the bi-plane?


  • Sponsor 2017 '13 '11 '10

    @Yavid:

    what happened to the bi-plane?

    Bi-plane and Panzer IV was moved to the Second Axis Minor set.


  • Customizer

    I remember the bi-plane, the He-51 I believe, was originally slated to be in the first Axis Minors set but you said the mold was too difficult to make. So it was replaced with the Fw-190. I take it things have improved to make the mold easier?

    A good move IMHO.

    We figured out how to do it. It was pushed from this set because this set is only being done in black and grey. We wanted all Minors to have the He-51 so we saved it for the next Minors set.



  • Wasn’t the Elephant suppose to be part of the Germany set also?

    speaking of bi-planes… is there any plans to do a Swordfish?


  • Customizer

    I think the Elephant was discussed as a possible piece but didn’t make the final cut. Perhaps Coach will include it in the next German set.

    Swordfish torpedo planes would be cool for Britain if they have conquered making bi-planes. Then you would REALLY do a Taranto raid.

    By the way, I checked out the new US pieces in alternate colors against some of the blonde, tan and sea foam/celery green UK pieces and grey ANZAC pieces from my sample set. The coloring is right on target on all counts. The only real difference is that Coach’s pieces have more of a dull appearance, like they were sprayed with dull cote, while the OOB pieces are a little shinier like they were sprayed with gloss cote. I think it’s simply a matter of the type of plastic used or perhaps slight differences in the molding process.
    Still get a kick out of seeing M-5 Stuart tanks and Nevada class Battleships in light blue.

    Elefant and Swordfish would be fantastic sculpts.

    I was looking at the HBG website a moment ago and I noticed what I think is a new feature: a table of HBG battle piece sculpts by colour, with a clickable square depicting each colour.  Clicking a given square will display the groups of pieces available in that colour.  A very useful feature which has immediately rendered obsolete the home-made list I was using to keep track of this information for myself.

    Yes, it was in response to AAA forum members asking for it.
    We always try to keep improving our site and listen to our fans for improvements.
    Thank you for helping us out!
