|This deceivingly small box contained ALOT of combat power!|
So my order contained 8 x BMP-2 IFVs, 8 T-64 MBTs, and 2 T-55AM2s. With all the hoopla over Volks Armee, the T-55 is up first (and yes, I will be fielding an NVA Army. You heard it here first!)
First of all let me say that I bought a 3D printed terrain bit for EPIC 40k a long time ago and it was flimsy, and generally crappy. My fear was that these models would be the same way. NOT SO. There is considerable "heft" to them off the bat for a printed model. Granted, the main guns will most likely not survive a 4' drop so be careful, but still, they not not flimsy models at all.
|T-55 AM2 with Soviet infantry next to it for scale. All are 1/100|
|Nice detail and crisp lines.|
|Love this tank!|
|What the flash looks like. I have my work cut out for me!|
|All of the models came with 1 vehicle that was cut off the sprues, I'm assuming so as to show me what the completed product is supposed to look like.|
|in the packaging. they are all stuck together.|
Okay and naturally I saved the best for last. The T-64. This is a beautiful model and looks great on the table. I cannot wait to paint these up. Not sure how they will look next to my T-80s from quality casting but they had better be prepared to do "double duty" on the tabletop.
I suppose this means I'll be buying the Soviet Army book for Team Yankee when it comes out??
|I love this tank!|
|More T-55AM2 goodness|
|T-64 and T-55 for comparison|
While not very cost effective due to shipping (14 Pounds!), the current pound-dollar exchange rate is what drove me to purchase these. I'd been waiting for the right opportunity and figured i'd jump at the chance to finally buy. There are some great WWII and Post War models on the BPM site as well and I urge you to check them out. https://www.butlersprintedmodels.co.uk/
Next package is a set of Crescent Root European buildings! Watch This Space!
And after these 2 purchases, I'm pretty much tapped out for the quarter...Besides, I've got loads of painting to do anyways.
Speaking of which, can I paint these babies with a rattle can? Or will they melt?
