The Weekly Sitrep will feature some good news re the ACW collection but for now I wanted to share some old school items that may be of interest. The first item you see is an unopened tin of Humbrol enamel paint - in this case from the Aunthenticolour range. Wargamers of a certain vintage will no doubt remember these tins that were used ny many a gamer in the days before acrylics were readily available. I own around three hundred tins of Humbrol enamel of various ages and still have around thirty or so from this range. I have two unopened tins of French Artillery Green and for the life of me I cannot remember why I acquired these because at no time during my gaming career have I ever considered a French army that would use this colour! They are about to be put to good use though as my 30mm ACW artillery pieces are going to be painted in this hue.
For the record some of these tins of paint must be around thirty five to forty years old!
