Wargame News and Terrain: Company B: New 15mm Anime Tank Commander School Gi...: Company B released these 15mm Anime tank commanders, allowing you to play Girls und Panzer!  For those that like to game Sensha-Dou in 15...
 
THE PLOT:
The story takes place in a universe where historical WWII-era tanks are maintained for sports warfare competitions and large carrier ships known as Academy Ships support mobile sea communities. Of the many activities high school girls can participate in, one of the most popular is "sensha-dō" (戦車道?, lit. "the way of the tank"),[ the art of operating tanks, which is considered a traditional martial art. Miho Nishizumi, a girl from a prestigious family of sensha-dō practitioners who became traumatized by a past event, transfers to Ōarai Girls High School to get away from sensha-dō, as she presumed the school was no longer practicing the sport. However, shortly after Miho begins her new school life and makes some new friends, the student council announces the revival of sensha-dō at Ōarai and coerces Miho, the only student with prior experience, to join. While reluctant to join at first, having practically been forced, Miho soon warms up to sensha-dō again and comes to enjoy it, after which the school prepares to enter a national sensha-dō championship, facing off against various other schools

Tanker's Tuesday A1E1 Independent (part 1)

 
 
 
 
 
This single prototype of a heavy tank was ordered by the General Staff in 1924 from Vickers. It remains one of the most influential design of the interwar, launching a “fad” for multi-turreted tanks that will last until ww2. At its core lays the trench warfare concept of a breakthrough tank, essentially to create an equivalent of the Naval dreadnoughts, with a fleet of faster light tanks roaming around like destroyers. The idea was deeply embedded in the team responsible for the first Tanks in UK, in particular Sir Winston Churchill, as Lord of the Admiralty was quite influenced by HG Wells “Land battleship” idea. The same idea was also shared by the French father of Tanks, General Estienne, that lobbied for the construction of the FCM 2C, operational just two years earlier.
 

Tanker's Tuesday: A1E1 Independent.

 
There were two tanks I couldn't get hold of in 1:100 (15mm) scale, that encouraged me to get into digital design. One was the Vickers Medium Mk.III, which I made my very first project in Blender. The other was the A1E1 Independent.

The Twelve Chairs - Treasure-hunting in the Polish Soviet War. This was inspired by the old Mel Brooks movie of the same name. While the movie is set in 1927, I decided to bring the story back in time. Thus, in the middle of the 1919-1920 battles between the new Polish Republic and the Red Army for the Eastern Borderlands, word that the fabulous jewels of the Vorobyaninov family may be hidden in some dining room furniture on their old estate in Ukraine. A race is..

Heavy Gear Blitz! - NuCoal Paratrooper and Strike Squads

Heavy Gear Blitz! - NuCoal Paratrooper Squad (4 minis: 2xChasseurParatrooper, 2x
and NuCoal Strike Squad (4 minis: 4xCuirassier)
 
 
These are the last lot of small MECHs I've obtained to
augment the unit I bought from Dan.  These will fall
in-between MECH and POWER ARMORED troopers 
using the old "LASERBURN" Dreadnought designation.
This Mercenary battalion will be a combined arms unit
with it's own Armor, Transport, Artillery, and limited
Air Assets. The unit is primarily recruited from the NAC
(American/English) domain and falls under that flag in
the event of general war....

Tanker's Tuesday: Panzers in the Golan Heights

 
 
 
The last appearance by WWII German tanks on the world’s battlefields came in 1967, when Syria’s panzer force faced off against modern Israeli armor. Quite improbably, Syria had assembled it’s collection of ex-Wehrmacht vehicles from a half-dozen sources over a decade and a half timeframe.

Sci-fi Conversions By Dan : Reinforcements By Don (2)

Some more of my reinforcements for
 
 
 
 
Above we have the support Mech code named
Mayhem, with two heavy Mini-guns
and Rockets.
 
 
 
Very Heavy Support Mech  code named Overkill,
this is where they put the guns off of decommissioned
A 10 Warthogs! Also armed with Rocket and Guided
Missile pods. (When you  absolutely must get that
squad hiding behind the school) It is a MERC unit so
the moral compass is not always fully functional...
 
 
 
 
 
 

Nice group shot of two of the "Four Horsemen"
as the support squad is known.....
