More news of interest to the Twilight: 2000 miniature wargamer!

Well, it's been a bit of a mixed news bag for the Twilight: 2000 gamer of late. First, for those of you that backed the PSC 20mm T-55 project, good news. The kits have shipped. When they arrive depends on where you are in the world, but knowing PSC, it won't be long. For those that waited, they are available for sale at 18.95 GBP for three tanks in a kit.

For Twilight: 2000, three tanks can often comprise a division, so the price isn't bad for what you get, and I am going to have to do a step by step build to show you all what you are in for.

Yep! They're on their way, Picture is courtesy of PSC! 

As covered in an earlier article, the Guild sadly, has left us, and with it, quite a bit of information for the discerning 20mm gamer (and many other gamers as well). That said, there has been the rise of a new site, and a new Facebook group, of which I am glad to point people to:

The new website is the Wargamer's Guild, it's new yet, and it might not quite have the flash the old Guild had, but I think, be patient and give it time, and it will do as well as it's predecessor did. I personally will be cheerleading it here, and hope to see many of you there.

The Facebook Group is known as Armchair Gamers. It's got quite a few "Guild Refugees" and memberships seems to be limited to former Guild members for now, but I do hope this policy changes soon, as the painting work is well, just incredible, and is meeting the usual high Guild standard (and not to mention the usual helpful nature of everyone there).

I also was at Williamsburg Muster down in Williamsburg last weekend. I haven't had the time to do a proper convention report, but I promise I will write one. I didn't see a whole lot of stuff of interest to readers from this blog, but there were some ideas worth mentioning I did see. And there was a Napoleonic skirmish game that would, with a little adaptation, make an excellent Twilight: 2000-themed scenario,

Another bit of news of interest to readers of the blog is some recent releases by Ehliem,  I am very interested in their new series of modern separate heads to convert figures with, including heads with a range of Soviet helmet types, and a 3-D printed BRDM-2 and BTR-80. There's also some new separate backpacks and food, perfect for customizing some post apocalyptic figures and terrain. I look forward to what comes down the pike further with these releases.

Till next time everyone!
