I know i'm lagging here just it takes so long to go through all the
on this list...

i happen to own a 5mm Evagelion (well, its about 5mm scale, working off
size of the damn thing in the anime). It stands about 19 cm to the top
the shoulder blade, carries a gun with a magazine the same size as a
and looks hell-cool. Now THAT is a 5mm figure. comes pre-painted too.
eventaully i plan to get it out and go around squishing Derek's massive
hover-tanks with it, but thats in the future. it looks really impressive
when it stands next to a 25mm figure.. and dwarfs it.

Well, I'm safe from that. I now have a house but have no spouse.
Sadly thought I have many things that were my mothers so space is
rather constricted at this point....

Company sized battles are nice in 25mm (closer to 100 figs) but a
battalion sized game in 6mm/1:300 is really nice. Combined arms is
where its at....

No beer, it spoils my concentration...But yes to coffee or tea.
