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.
All Quiet on the Martian Front: Repaired US Tanks Finished
A new 3 tank platoon of Mark II's is joining the ranks of my US army for All Quiet on the Martian Front. All three tanks are repaired wrecks and have welded steel plate to cover the armor damage made by Martian weaponry.
The wily platoon leader who has two tripod kills to his credit. His tank has some sandbags across its frontage in an attempt to reduce the effectiveness of the Martian heat ray. I don't think there is a rule that provides an advantage for sandbags - it just looks cool. The sandbags are made from greenstuff.
Another shot of the platoon. While the customization is very simple, I like how it came out and I think the details add to the "desperate struggle" feel of the game. I should point out that given the height advantage of most Tripods the damage might occur more on the top than the sides but lets just say these tanks were killed at long range - which is why they were able to be recovered!
