New BMP-1 by S-model!

This lovely dude popped up on the Guild today. As many Soviet affeciandos will be aware; the quest for a good looking BMP model has been long and arduous, but it looks like our salvation is finally here!

Keep an eye on The Hobby Den, as they will likely be your best bet to pick up this beauty!

Russians?!? In my Syria?!

just finished a bunch of Russian armor I decided to do the more standard woodland pattern on, very happy with the outcome.

Model Collect's new T90A. A real stunner of a model and I can't get over the awesomeness of the cast turret over the previous upgraded T-72b incarnation. Definitely recommend these fellows.

I simple greened the ###### out of the BTR-90 I had previously bedecked in desert white and remastered it. Again, very happy with the new incarnation. Even thinking of maybe adding some extra bar armor protection smile.gif

The previously-showcased 3d printed BMP-3. Seriously excited as to the power of this tech and where it will be in a couple years.

I decided to add some stowage and spice up the Strykers too.

After finishing these guys I managed to mash the main nozzle of my Iwata, so I am currently awaiting a replacement (80 bucks, sheesh). Also have picked up a new Iwata compressor, so I am looking forward to a more consistent airstream for my airbrushing. Next up I have a T62MV conversion I've been working on for a while that I hope will be the best attempt I've made at this vehicle yet.

The war factory goes into overdrive.

update tiem that is.

first up the new BMP-2s by Liberation minis - definitely my favorite kit of this fellow so far. Nice and simple to put together and really capture the feel of it.

Also based up a VAB for my upcoming tiny frenchy force.

Stryker MGS - still need to paint up a crapload of stowage for this bad boy. I am seriously stoked with how the bar armor turned out, makes the vehicle look mean as hell.

The APC variant of the same vehicle. Same deal as above: needs stowage.

And now for something slightly different: Microarmor! I have been having major cravings to play larger-scale conflicts of late, so this is a nice place to start. Here are the beginnings of my Mid East force, with a bunch of T-62/62Ms and some BMPs and arty.
