The Armory production review   Leave a comment

This year we have advanced in technology with the acquisition of a Lulzbot Mini 3D printer.  The printer is technically my sons (bday present from his gran), but I have been capitalizing on the use.  Andrew spent the first month with the device building a full size vex Mythoclast rifle from Destiny.

DAK Panzers   1 comment

The DAK panzers have been one of those long term projects we all have.  I bought most of the models at least 6 years ago minus the PSC half tracks and Panzer IIIs.

Flames of War: 28th Canadian Armoured Regiment (The British Columbia Regiment)   Leave a comment

What can I say I got sidetracked again…. I had a number of the plastic Battlefront Shermans from the new Open Fire Box, a couple PSC tanks unassembled, and two extra BF resin fireflies.  So what do I do? like any good gamer I come up with a new regiment to paint.  I already have a Guards Armoured Troop.    Originally, the idea was to just paint the tanks as Canadian and then use my existing British assets to round out any lists.

The late war Panzer IV Comparison   1 comment

Over the years, I have accumulated a fair number of Panzer IV tanks.  Mostly from Battlefront, but with the release of PSC tanks I added another company of tanks.  Then I got to thinking… wouldn’t it be cool to see how other manufacturers stack up against Battlefront.  In this post we will look at the Battlefront Panzer IV H with metal schurzen, Battlefront Panzer IV H with plastic schurzen, Battlefront Panzer IV J, Plastic Solider Company Panzer IV H, Peter Pig Panzer IV H, Quality Castings Panzer IV H, and the Old Glory Panzer IV H.

A Collection of StuG III Gs   2 comments

I seem to have a strange addiction… I like to collect StuG III G models.  Luckily, this addiction has only manifested its self in 15mm plus one 1/48 scale model that I have not assembled yet.  Whats next after 1/48 scale?  will it ever end?  Perhaps my wife can accept the fact that I can sell the house and buy a real working one.  Not sure she would be happy because, I wont be able to drop the kids off at school in it!

The Plastic Solider Company M4A3 Late reviewed   2 comments

The Plastic Soldier Company released their M4A3 (late) box this summer.  I originally thought I had enough Sherman tanks, but I succumbed.  I succumbed to need to have the exact model of vehicle.  I am probably not alone among my fellow gamers in this addicition!

Sherman Model Comparison (WIP)   2 comments

I have alot of Shermans.  Mostly from Battlefront, but many from other manufactures including Peter Pig, Old Glory, and Plastic Solider Company.  I am going to attempt to show comparisons of the different models graphically to help my fellow gamers pick what is out there.  Its going to take awhile because I dont all the models I would want to compare yet, but I will start acquiring them just for you the reader!!

Here are the first tanks for comparison.  I had someone ask how the Peter Pig T34 Calliope compare against other Shermans.  Let me know which other shots are important to you to compare tanks and any recommendations for comparison.
