This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
The US Steam Tank models are very easy to customize, even for someone of my limited skills. Up first is a US mark II tank platoon that's equipped with Tanks that have been recovered and repaired. The blast holes from the Martian heat rays have been covered up with armor plate thats welded into place and then it's back to the battlefield.
The "armor plate" is thin styrene plastic and the welds are a thin roll of green stuff thats then scored with a hobby knife. It's a bit crude but gets the job done. I'll add some scorch marks from some hear hits and the weather the vehicles.
The grey Mark III's in the background will get a similar treatment once I see how the Mark II's go.
The Tanks are a lot of fun to build and customize!
