A couple of TY Red Thunder leaked piks from Salute

I got a quick and short post of a couple of piks for the upcoming Russian books.
 looks like a couple of plastic kits,
 Next pick i would like to see are of the PSC T55 models.
 models looks pretty good . Nice to the BTR  in plastic,since alot of people will be needing alot of them.Kinda crappy that the T 64 doesnt have reactive armor. But i bet it will be cheap in points though.
 thats it till next time. tanks...

TAliban reinforcements have arrived!

I got a order In from MJ figures of  a few things i was needing another 4 PLA rocket launchers, Mounted Horsemen for Recon and what i think is kewl is a weapons pack, I finally got me some MANPADS for the Taliban.May not be stinger but they used them. The British Blowpipe.
 First is the PLA rockets,decent models except the miscasted wheels.I have a total of 7 but i will only be using 6 of them the extra one is for spare parts and the crew will be getting addded as mortar crew.
 Second is the mounted Horse back models. i like theese sculpts alot.I think here in the future i will be picking up some more and converting a few over to have  AK 47s.AS for the game i am just using the Motor bike rules and mounting.Here in the future when MJs gets a restock i will be basing them off of the Romanian  mounted scout platoon for RED BEar book. 4 to a large base.
 Third and last is the MANpads models theese were converted Khursan FIgs with the MJ blow pipes. THe first 2 were easy, i took a Rifleman and shaved off the rifle and left the sling and attached the Blowpipe to where the rifle was.I put the BLowpipe launcher end facing down as to me with it being heavier it may have been carried that way.Also a little easier to attach.I took me a alttle while to figure out how to make firing model.So i wnt thru what i had a seen the detenator fig for Khurasan.So i snaged one up and went about converting.I think he turned out pretty decent.Now i need a boat load of theese figs because i got a idea to use them for PLA rocket firing controlllers.As for the game ATMi am using them as a HQ attachment.eventually it will be a platoon of 6  with the HQ attachment for a total of nine.
 Well Tanks for now,Here next i will be featuring a BAttlereport,TY AMericans vs TAliban in Free for All, my TAliban HQ objective and Mortar platoons medium and HEavy.

Totentanz: Spanish Army Kickstarter

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1758196306/nato-86-south-flank-spanish-army-15mm-wargame-mini?token=97d2329f%2F 

Looks like me i think most of NAto forces no have models now for Cold war. 
Armies Army 
Canadian, Cold weather Briitish, and Dutch 
TOTENTANZ MINIATURES 
Spanish and French 
BF 
USA, U.K,West Germans 
Thing i want to see if is How PSC , Does with the new NortHAg game and the NEW plastic TAnk offerings,Will we see a Leopard 1 Main Battle Tank (MBT) in Plastic? 
Considering as here of lately all We had was FOrce on Force for mainly Cold War gaming, 
THen are fellow Member offered us FOW Stopping the RED tide Supplement. 
But you do have to give Credit to BF for help making this more into the mAinstream Loosely Historical gaming.What i want to see is how they are going to Treat NAm and AIW. 
Or some of the other wars and ERAS. 
It did surprise me though when Team YAnkee was announced.I firgure BF would have made a Korean war or SCW gaming. SInce they already have most of the KIts for the wars. 
Now the Warsaw PACT nations is needing some attention , but the bad thing is that they are mostly Generic type forces.Where the soviets get most of the kewl new gaar and they the kick me downs/ 
.But a CUBAN force would be good or some proper Soviet MArines.Armies Army make a proper VDV force for the Soviets. 
So tell what you think or theories on this. TAnks.

TY AMerican reinforcements inbound.

I got me a few boxes of M113 here awhile back.So that i may make the 6 HEavy Mortar carriers and use the extras to finish my Mech Infantry company.
 BAck here for xmas i got a boatload of magnets for my models from the wife.So i have went magnet crazy.FOr theese models in particlar .I magnetised the mortars a command hatches with the  .50 cals.
 kinda cool to be able to rotate them and be stable.
 Next project was some Revell 1/100 Apaches that i got a good deal on from ebay.6 bucks each shipped in beat up boxes but still sealed kinda. I also magnetised them too.Bottoms so i could attache them to BF flight stands, Chain gun and rotors. I nerfed the first one up,but not to bad when i had  moment and thought i could magnetise the weapons. Alignment didnt turn out to good.I also added my Rocket pods from my Skyraider.Which were not included.
 As for game stats they count as CObras.
 TAnks for reading til next time.





Magnets attached and almost ready to go.

Upadate on TAliban, comparsion piks.


I thought i would update the 15mm comparsion piks. i now have included a Flash point taliban.
 So from left to right,Khurasan,Old glory,MJs,FLytrap and flash point.
   i am not sure on my favorite it is still tie with Khurasan and Flytrap models.
 The flash point are nice sculpts but lacking in the variety department.
  Still waiting on someone to make Taliban with stingers. But it looks like i may have to convert my own with a Blowpipe weapons sprue from MJ and try to find suitible figs for gunners and maybe some dudes with Binoculars for spotters.
  Thats all for now.stay tuned for my update on my rivers and REvell 1/100 Apache kits.
