Well my "Potecknov's Bears" FINALLY arrived! There's also a little MERDC surprise in this post as well. Albeit a poorly photographed one but it shows I've been working a little anyways...
By now you're probably sick and tired of everyone posting pictures of their TEAM YANKEE stuff for...well. the game TEAM YANKEE. Mine will be used for other games in addition to Team Yankee. Like Sabre Squadron among others! Plus I received a free vehicle for all of the troubles that came with pre ordering.
I received 10 AFVs (T-72s) and 2 x HIND MI-24s in 1/100 scale and boy are they HUGE!
|You were right, David. Look at those tracks! A thing of beauty.|
|The body is slightly smaller than my Zvezda T-72B. That's OK they'll be in separate units.|
|I've got my work cut out for me!|
I will go over the models individually over the next few days when I can find the time. I will say though that the castings are absolutely beautiful and I cannot wait to put these together and paint them.
Speaking of painting, not to be outdone by the Soviets, the Americans have their own reinforcements to add. Again, I apologize for the crappy pictures but that's how it goes sometimes! More to follow.
|My MERDC proof of concept|
Excellent additions Steven. That MERDC tub looks rather well done as well. Good skills!
Glad you liked the M113, Paul. It's my first prototype using the colors I've got on hand. "You go to war with the paints that you have!"Delete
As for the Battlefront stuff - MAN that Hind is a big boy. 1/100. Not sure what I'm going to do with them as my aircraft are all 1/144.
Very nice! My pre-order stuff is currently AWOL :(ReplyDelete
Sorry to hear that, Monty. Hold on just a little while longer - reinforcements will get there! I thought these tanks would never get here. I can't wait for the infantry to be released!Delete
Oh those 15mm Sovs look wonderful. I keep having to steel myself not to get into a new scale - though I don't really have enough armour in 20mm...oh..so...tempting.ReplyDelete
Darren, they're beauties and the picture I took doesn't do them justice!Delete
Besides, 20mm is a great scale for cold war gaming. You can purchase Elheim figs!! :)
Sounds like someone cheated and opened their Christmas presents early? Looking forward to see the Bears in action, Steven.ReplyDelete
Not far from the truth, Michael. Since I behaved myself this past summer with miniatures purchases, SWMBO allowed me to pre-order the Bears since I was getting a discount and a free mini :) 10x T-72s later here we are!Delete
