Ah, yet another good use for the coasters!
I was awarded the Customizer badge at some point unknown, but marked on my pictures post as to when I found out I was a recipient. There is a post somewhere on the forums that tells of the process and from what I recall one has to be nominated by someone to a moderator and there is some sort of review process. Here’s a link to the award discussion thread: https://www.axisandallies.org/forums/topic/24173/customizers-round-2
Glad you enjoy the pics and tips! We all inspire each other with our pictures, tips, and techniques, so keep sharing!
You guys might want to check these sites out. Or just scroll up above this post.
I found it.
This link has everything you need. I will be using the black 30 mm stand with peg and micro magnets from the above link.
I think for global 40 sets will suffice, possibly 50. Need micro magnets for all the planes ( about 80-90) and 40 for the stands.
I am combining the resources for making these bases.
This site has the proper magnets. Still looking for metal rods that are pre-cut about 2 inches.
A friend of mine has the most perfect examples. Here is what he did ( reprinted from email).
I bought the magnets from K&J Magnetics… They were almost the smallest available size with a hole in the center to fit a 1/16" rod.
I drilled holes in pennies, glued 1/16 inch brass rod into them, placed the magnet on top and glued it down.

Is a link where YOU personally link the instructional!
Somewhere in the customizations section a guy made a whole tutorial, with downloadable PDF’s.
hey guys, so I was searching some camo desert schemes for HBG’s Valentine medium tank and came across this one. ï¿½Â However looking at the sculps I knew it would be tough to paint these blue lines in because most of the tank is all track! so I cut out and shaped some track guard armour like the photo below just using some clear flexible plastic and glued in too the sides…making these two tanks mk II’s which look to have had the side armour as a pose to the Mk V that HBG has sculpted.
I’m sure whatever you do too it, it will turn out great. Can’t wait too see it painted. Good luck buddy!
Yeah that’s understandable. I’m the same too with the bulk of pieces already painted it really takes a new HBG expansion set to get my brushes out again. Or right now my buddy and I are trying out Guadalcanal for the first time. And I noticed the US start out with a generous amount of b17 fortresses so I wanted to repaint some for the game. Well whenever you get inspired again I will look forward to more showcases from you.
I hope I can get to it… maybe after a few things clear out of my schedule in the coming weeks. I always feel the need to paint when I see the cool stuff you guys are working on.
Paul - yeah… I applaud your stance on transport planes being separated from bombers. I couldn’t agree with you more - my own rule is purely for simplicities sake for my 50th, it actually kinda bothers me still. I only play A&A with my ‘old crews’ about twice a year (when I visit the states), otherwise my 50th hosts some players that haven’t played nearly as long as us - though all are interested in WWII history. So I have to try and keep the piece differentiations to minimum.
George - no worries, they’re Italians so they should get a long with my guys
Fantastic collection! Like the individuality that those figs offer - I don’t own any, so are they pretty much the same size as the OOB? Looks like it (except for the stands of course). Gotta love those SS! “HOLD ZE LINE!”
That one Italian bomber… would never thought that shade of orange could be pulled off, but it looks pretty cool. Might have to give that one a try.
Fellow A&A Gamers,
––This thread will eventually contain ALL of the Anzac units that I’ve had detailed & painted by the “WARMACHINE Team”.
––So far the list includes:
––Anzac (Infantry, Rifle)…(Starting at message #1)
Anzac Armored Vehicles
––M-3 Stuart “Honey” (Tank, Light)…Outback Camo scheme…(Starting at message # )
----Here are the Anzac Rifle Infantry that Chad Coffman, a.k.a. “Allworkandnoclay”, painted for me. All 20 of the Australian Infantry, nick-named “Diggers”, after their WWI fight at Galipoli, are shown here in a group portrait just after completion by Chad. Note the intricate Anzac ensign he painted on their bases. This guys painting talent is simply awesome! So just sit back, put another shrimp on the barbie, and enjoy, mate.
