Just received this request:

Clearly we need emoticons for tanks from each of the major powers in WWII; T-34, Sherman, Matilda, Tiger, etc. Clearly!

Remember, the emoticon contest ends on May 5th. Get your entries in before Wednesday midnight!

I'm surprised this needs to be said, but obviously that request is tongue in cheek.

The US needs the Pershing instead of the Sherman, in order to be able to compete with the Tiger.

I think we need a range of block "emoticons" in a range of various uniform colours. So that instead of discussing what something was coloured we can just go.

Use [english khaki] mixed 50/50 with [olive drab].

We can use the 256 "safe" monitor colours to start with. And build from there.

But the colours would all have to be Vallejo approved, of course

If you are talking about American tanks, which all sucked anyway, how about emoticons for the Stuart and Grant? I would ask for a Lee too, but TMP emoticons are too small to tell the difference.

We will also need tanks from the 50s, 60s, 70s and up to the present.

We will also need separate Boards for each tank and its emoticon.

BTW, how about an Emoticon for "Harrumph!" while you are at it?

Only joking… of course. :)
