I am a huge fan of your site. I also like to collect
Roco/Herpa Minitanks and I am not sure if you noticed their recent pricing
Under the link:
http://www.mo87.de/downloads/herpa-2012-05-06.pdf, you can see that they
increased prices above 10% without further notice.
Now another collector
friend and I have opened up a petition against their pricing policy as we do
observe that many collectors do abandon the range as their prices have become
unbearably. I would like to invite you to post about us, if you are also
concerned as we are and maybe you would like to join our facebook group and sign
Both you can find under the following
Then, if we have enough reach would
like to make this coming up also in the media. Tomorrow, the 1st of february
2012, the Nuremberg toy fair opens and thus the media coverage with the concerns
of us collectors could really make a difference.
Thank you very much for
your support. Feel free to forward this e-mail if you think it's noteworthy to
other interested collectors, distributors or sellers.
I visited the Roco catalog and the Facebook site. Seems like a good Joe. You might want to pay him a visit.

night one sentry is on duty in every piece of important territory in military
zones. In addition, every headquarters, company level and above, will have a CQ
duty staff, with one additional sentry, per command level. A company will have one sentry, a battalion
will have two, and a brigade will have three sentries. Sensitive areas, nuclear or chemical, may
have additional sentries.
garrison, units have sentries out from 2000 hrs, until 0600 hrs. Between the hours of 0700 and 1900 hrs, there
are sentries only at headquarters and sensitive areas. In war zones, sentries are out only from 2200
hrs, to 0400 hrs. After that, or when on
alert, normal conditions apply. One
sentry may be stationed per square foot from 2000 hrs to 0600 hrs, to watch for
intruders. Sentry alertness roll one six
sided die, 5% per number then add or subtract +- DM as per morale. Infiltrators skills roll one six sided die 5%

I continue to work on my Battle of Berlin project. One of the things I am doing is setting up the embassies and legations for the friendly and neutral powers. Many maintained embassies there to assist their nationals during and after the battle. Here is some of what I am working on for embassy staff.
Dapol, Preiser, and other civilians for the various staff and swap heads as
much as reasonable for a different look for the figures. I also use traditional clothing for the various
ethnic peoples, like Japanese and Chinese. Each embassy will have several staff people.
Wife of Ambassador
Deputy Chief of
Dean of the Diplomatic Corps
Economic / Business
Heads the Legation of Minor Nations
I am also planning on a building or at least a couple rooms for each of the nations. I am also giving most of them some sort of pet or mascot that is similar to their national animal. The Vichy French for example will have a French poodle dog. I will have pictures soon as I make more progress on this project.
