Hello Folks I’m getting back on track now after rather bad illness. I was in bad Chemical accident years ago and have on going bad illness. So it takes me out sometimes. Anyhow back on topic. I was giving a nice get well gift while back and I want to share it with you all . These are super nice snap toe kits for a little game that Revell models came up. There are 3 so far I really hope they ad more! These are great 1/48 -28mm scale tanks. If you are a WW-2 28mm Wargamer they are a God send! There price runs about $8.00 US to $9.99 US they can be found a Walmart of all places there is the M-48 Patton, M-4 sherman, very hard to find Panzer IV! They go great beside my other WW-2 tanks a and my M-48 Pattons Spot on! If you are like me when few years back I tried to find good priced WW-2 tanks in 28mm 1/48 1/45 even 1/50 1/55 etc… I could not find much at all:-( and when did it was not good price. These new snap ties are Great I think! Detail is good not super but good a little primer a repaint BAME! WW-2 or Cold War tanks. Very easy to snap together! Make few paper tent roles or Blankets etc… Add Jerry can or two and you add little cammo or Od Green wargame you have very nice tanks a Company of 5 $50.00 dollars ! That’s not bad cause some WW-2 some good diecast cost more then that for one! Any how Great buy get em at Walley World ( AKA Wall-mart) or local hobby model shops. Mine were gotten at Hobby Lobby Great cool things can be found there they have lot of sells I was told mine only cost $8.00 bucks!! On sale $40 bucks for 5 guys Wow not bad deal at all. Check em out they have lot cool sales Hobby Lobby! So if you got sell and just got 2 tanks two German Panzer 4s and two US/ Brit M-4 a side aside for $32.00 US great price just a little paint some add ons or not your fighting 28mm tank battle same day! Or get one two or 5 M-48 tanks some US Inf. Or Allis and some VC or NVA your fighting on the Jungle roads or Fire bases or Streets of Vietnam in No time! Go get em Pattons! Anyhow I digress very sorry. Not going down range again:-( Anyhow this is about a post Apocalyptic Terminator Game! Oh by the way speaking of post Apocalyptic games this tank would be great for Twilight2000 or Road warrior or even Tank girl if you like that and my favorite a Zombie or Gamma world maybe! Anyhow I have talked to much here are before after pics also I’ll show other tanks they make.
Ok the top two are the Panzer IV .Next is the M-4 sherman. The last two are the M-48 in out of package. Next you will see it almost ready for the Terminator Wargame. The reason I am using some of the M-48 Patton and M-60 and not many M-1 A-1 Tanks is do to them being lower on the tech Scale. And the Tanks are not as likely to have been on bases hit by Nukes. I’m saying in the Game that John Conner and others in the resistance found these tanks and are using them to shell small Terminator bases after clearing the sky’s of hunter Killers. The tanks will be a help to the New human army’s across the USA and Can. In Can. They used the Leopard tanks and some of these. Anyhow here is my first M-48 tank[:-|]
Here is the M-48 I painted it using rust and mud, dusty weathering I place some heavy MG stitching on the left side. Added rust to holes a bit to look as it had happened a while ago. Maybe it was a fight with Terminators maybe with the Crazed human W.A.S.H. (Warriors Against Stagnant Humanity) that fight with the machines! I also took baby wipes cut them up rolled them in white Elmer’s glue to make tents or camo covers. I then wanted a thick future looking netting so I cut the front off some 1×1 and. 2X2 band aids. And painted them OD green or camo. I liked the name and the skull with wrenches behind it on the turret so I left them and the # on back up turret. I turn out Great I think and tho it will die fast it might get off a few AP rounds on a Hunter Killer tank or Other targets in the Dark world of the Future. Well pick some of these nice tanks up for Terminator, WW2, Vietnam, or any future Wargames. [:-|]
Hello Terminator wargame fans. Just got some good news friend just sold me bunch of very rare old Leading edge miniatures in 25mm 28mm they are bit in between. I got a packs of heavy 100watt humansI have changed the term of Watts. 100watts 40 watts was never made clear why they said this very low wattage! I must think this is the priming charge of the weapon not the real power! I call them in my game Higher watt I made up that SkyNet a new wattage term is not a mega watt nor and plane old watt. Its Kelda Rad Watt. Its a a very high wattage of the weapon. So I call the 40 KR watts 50 KR 60 KR watts etc… Anyhow is very nasty it is just called watts for short sometimes. Hey guys if you have a Terminator miniature or Role play please send us link. I’ll be posting links and pics from other players this week. Hey if you make Post Apocalyptic terrain for games would love to see it. I want to ad sellers to our site like nice guy on ebay selling wargame painted Ready for gaming Flying hunter killer!well more pics very soon and info for buying some very rare leading edge miniatures! [:-|]
Here is new item I got for my Birthday a few of these. They are Robots from the Star Wars miniature game made by Wizards of the Coast. I do think of all their games they did the best job on this! This little jewel is perfect for my Terminator (Death Factory)these will be Mid speed Hvy armor but need a smother road or flatter surface to run on. Tho they will be able to do some climbing over big Rubble but not fast or well! They will be a Warbot not Smart as a Terminator but big hard to kill for Security duty or some scouting or stand up Battle bot. Its cheap for me to get its was little less then a $1.00 I was told. ( was gift) You can’t beat that for a Wargamer with not a lot of money anymore:-) it was gotten on Ebay its Star Wars Miniature Fringe #32 E522 ASSASSIN DROID. In my game he looks like he can have good mixed bag of weapons. I’ll have him having a flamethrower in right arm or an MG like .30 cal and two 50 KR wAtt plasma guns and the left arm a 75KR watt rapid fire plasma gun or a mid field Laser!he could spin around ( Having what could be small face plate in back or radar etc… ) and be used for light mortar support light a 50mm/ or 40mm grenades he has 4 of them tho the ammo would go fast even with ceaseless rounds! Or they could just be smoke stacks. His arms an flip to! Amor would be bit little in rear or not as you see fit in your games. Anyhow he’s great Silver guy! The Star Wars bots and humans with tech guns are great for a cheaper fun Terminator game and already painted:-) If you are light on the scratch go buy this little guy in a Batch! Oh No my Cookie?!?
EL CID?!? WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOOOO….NOT MY LAST HALF OF COOKIE?!?
:,-( why El CID Why?!? Look at that face saying who cares Dadems! Its in my Little belly now! Pure sinister look like mad Dog Doctor evil look! Or a Crazy Bandito from south of the boarder never caring who he might make sad!
Oh my El CID the look of a tiny puppy not and evil Bandito at all??? Now I find myself saying its ok Poor little guy?!? What just happened here?? These pictures are real my wife was taking pic of him sitting she turn around to take a drink looked back the last little part of my cookie was in his mouth as he is jumping away from the seen of the crime she then took the next one of him Finishing the last little bit of my poor cookie! Then I sat him up asked why ?He gave me a look like Ren from Ren and Stimpy when he did the big soulful puppy eyes as you the judges can see clearly … Then me not ever being able to be mad at this little bunko artist for some crazy reason he then licked my face and looked so sad he has suffered to much I all ready. I did raze my voice a little I feel so bad I gave him pice of stake to make up for my barbering behavior…… What the heck just happened here its like an X file he did it again…. [;-)]
Hello folks ! I’m very sorry I have been off. I hope I have folks returning I can’t tell unless you say something. I would love to know if you enjoy this blog? So if you could please just put little note letting me know? Anyhow I have been ill:-( I am trying to start back now. Anyhow today I have an item you guys might look for. It was get well gift gotten at the Tractor Supply Store. It’s very nice about 1/42 1/48 28mm large Diecast/plastic Simi Garbage Truck by New Ray Toys! It is great for Modern games. It’s also great for Post Apocaliptic games like the New Fury Road MAD MAX movie coming out. ( note if this does well they HAVE TO PUT MEL IN NEXT ONE WHAT THE HICK ARE THEY THINKING! The guy said some stupid stuff ( don’t we all break down sometimes?) Anyway back to truck it will be great I think as an Mod. APC thats what I’ll be making it in to. It will be cool cause some 28mm Miniatures can fit in the back. And the back opens up. Here are pictures of truck.
Well there she is big girl as you can see by my friends Great Miniature From his Super nice line of 28mm Viking,Norman,Saxon,peasant, line of Dark ages and medieval figs. I put him to give some idea of scale. He is great flag bearer ! If you want to know who makes them drop me a line I’ll forward it to the Maker.He is getting up and running again after years of him and his lovely wife serving Nation in the War on Terror. Real nice fellow super good miniatures lots of lines to come. Anyway the truck is from Tractor Supply Store they are in Va. And other states I think. Anyway they do not carry this model all year so it was Diecast for Xmas toys. My friend told me it was $9.99 normal then he saw yellow price of $6.99 But it is selling out for $4.99 this is a great price for this large Diecast truck. I went and got one for my sons Zombie games. He loved it. It goes great with his vehicles that are from 1/55 to 1/40 and all in between 28mm scale. And the Dollar General had some great 1/48 cars in Diecast for Xmas . As of this post on 5.Feb 2015 you can still find Xmas close outs in many places for low prices. Great time if you have little ex cash to get few things after Xmas like Xmas trees, walls, light post sometimes nice buildings and Diecast that were just for selling at Xmas. Look around tell me if you find anything good. Not just for Terminator games. Good Luck! I’ll post pics later on of Garbage truck when done.Im going to start posting the other Terminator sites ASAP in week or so maybe this weekend if I can. [:-)]
