Re: New footy team

Sorry for the poor photo and being upside down ! The tops of the bases look white in the photo but they also have a green tinge.

New footy team

Picked up this team complete team in a flats job lot. The bases all have a greenish tinge like marbling. Would this be as they should be or has somebody tried to colour the bases?

Subbuteo World Vintage Box sets

Subbuteo World currently has a sale of their vintage sets. All the sets have significant reductions on usual prices. Very few decent sets seem to come up on ebay now, so a good opportunity to pick one up if you are looking for one.

Re: Gullseye League Season 5

Was also waiting with interest on the outcome of Division Four. At the other end, any particular reason why Villa have been re-elected and Derby not so? Every league club has a "vote" (roll of dice), Villa received 26 votes and Derby 20. You may say thats just luck, but Villa were due some after th...

Re: OSC OS (Old Subbuteo Club Old Sods)

Flats are great to play with, however you need to practice to get the gist of the swerve and spinning totally different to 00. I have been privileged to have both seen and played against the greatest exponents of Flats over the past 40+ years. Seeing the likes of Dave Collett, Mike Dent, Kev Dyson,...

Very nice figures and to be honest they play better than the originals in some respects
I was going to ask how they compared. In what respects are they better, Ralph ?

Here come The Shaymen :clap: :clap: :clap: First time I had had a chance to flick my new flats. I am not good quite enough yet to do them the justice that they deserve but they were nice to play with and were good when taking the shots with them in the final shoot-out - unfortunately my approach pl...

Need my beloved Argyle to win last match
They have a good chance, Bristol City are away at Bournemouth and Argyle are at home to Newcastle.

Re: Shipping from America

I've just secured a WW1 item from America: price £71.69, with tracked shipping of £39.54. Not looking forward to the customs slice ..... :evil: Though I'm hoping it's a price worth paying. Following Brexit we are all going to have to get used to the " customs slice ", something not experienced in t...

Re: Latest acquisitions

I am a Halifax lad and the early 70s kit was one of my favourites. Attached is my Halifax town. I like the kit that much that I also got Steve (Number 9/Pendle Falcon) to make me one as a flats team and am looking forward to seeing if playing with these can improve my results!

Re: Suggestions for solo play

I first started by playing a complete 1982/3 First Division, which was great but didn't fancy doing another as its a long haul. Decided then to start a league of four divisions and carry it on from year to year. I've got 12 teams in each and the fun of this is that there is relegation and promotions...
