I actually didn't know what yu meant about what happened, but...
From what I can tell, Audie Murphy, Recondo, and some other nic I forget are all the same guy, and because GP's is filled with guys that are clueless about toy collecting in general (lotta "older" guys who just like militaria) they got taken for a ride on some trades by sme ******bag little kid.
IE: the guy with all the nics...
So, GP, and his major domo Aferg are cracking down on multiple nics.
I dn't believe I have anything but JJ... I don't register 2nd nics usually unless I find one really amusing.
The whole thing's a mess, but sometimes so are GP's forums. I think he really, if he wanted his site/stuff to take off, should consider "hiring" some people to work for the site. Make a real 1:18 military site... There's enough news crap for it!
BTW I ordered a neat 4-figure set (the classic Infantry U.S. figures) from SMB the other day. They're the U.S. set... Not the men of Charlie Co., but the other set with "names".
They look awesome, but that's just in images.
The C. Co. guys are on sale as well. All are under $5 under the current Dragon sale, so I can't argue with that price on Dragon figures. They're not poseable really, but around a farmhouse or barn they look disgustingly realistic. I mean, Dragon's 1:18 may not be fun to play with like BBI and 21st, but hell if they aren't amazing to look at, and I'll never blow my nose at such good custom head fodder to reproduce.
Now I need Charlie Co., and they have a modular "bombed building" playset that I'm hearing REALLY good things abuot by a cheapo cmpany.
The playset's like $15 and has a ton of crappy accessries, but I'm thinking of nabbing 2 just for Star Wars dios for my imperial shelf or something. $15 you can't go wrong.
Shipping wasn't terrible either... $5 something I think, but on cases of BotB at SMB it was like $8 at a minimum. I don't know why.
