Totentanz: Spanish Army Kickstarter 

Looks like me i think most of NAto forces no have models now for Cold war. 
Armies Army 
Canadian, Cold weather Briitish, and Dutch 
Spanish and French 
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.
