Finally, the T-64BV. Really happy with how this conversion turned out. Maybe my favorite tank so far??

Sarah Connor?

Progress continues in the build-a-thon.

I had a few T-64Bs layin around so I decided to bring them up to a more modernised standard, voila T-64BV :)

These guys will probably be outfitting my CDF faction. You can see that despite being 1/87 they fit very well with 15mm Peter Pig guys.

also spent 4 hours building this monstrosity, the BMP-T 'Terminator.'

Definitely a cool beast, not looking forward to building its twin though :)

Europe 2010

Since my recent discovery of a whole new range of 15mm resin vehicles my world has somewhat opened up. This has pushed me to do a very contemporary set of forces, and now it looks like the project is in full swing, expect many new and shiny things.

Ahead of its time, doomed to failure.

I've always had a bit of a soft spot for the Sheridan. It had an interesting concept behind it; much like the Soviet ASU-85 it was intended to be an air-droppable piece of armor. Unlike the more successful soviet design, its main gun was wholly unconventional by the standards of the time, and used large bore guided missiles as its main anti-tank munitions. This did not go well.

nevertheless the tank remains an interesting CW experiment, and I decided to paint up a few of battlefront's wonderful offerings. Although I have always had reservations over BF products, these models are spectacular, and are each very characterful.
