I was going to say this meme had run its course but I approve of this one.

One, from a train model kit.

This is mine, I use it for WWII but doubt it is historically accurate. It was just a real bargain in a model train store back in Ireland when I visited back home. I couldn't turn it down.

Ironically the water tower is on fire and getting the crap blown out of it: water towers were priority targets apparently!

One. Pics here on Flickr: link
It is so nice I based my entire game around it…
War Panda, I really like your burning Water Tank!

The one in the garage – hot water heater.

Hey Panda, is that the one I Shot with a bazooka?

That was a good bit of fun, we should do it again!

Zero – even my condo lacks one!

"Hey Panda, is that the one I Shot with a bazooka?"

Jack it was just another heroic and memorable moment in the battle. :)

I'd love to try it again.

Haha, thought that I was pushing my luck with the Bob Semple question.
I own a larger version of the water tank that Ceterman posted a link to. I've also been meaning to do one for my Old West town for about ten years.

Chuckaroobob29 Mar 2017 9:34 p.m. PST

I have one train style.

Now that I think about it, I own three water tanks of one sort or another amongst my various terrain items.

Not even a Sherman DD

2….. Both rustic timber affairs…….of course if we want to diverge into oil tanks and storage then I have half a dozen or more in various scales…..

Cracking terrain there, War Panda!

Is that an LED-lit cotton wool smoke cloud?

Martin Rapier30 Mar 2017 5:51 a.m. PST

A water tank looks like something I need. I've only got one an one of my wargaming trains (and a few few tanker lorries of course) but they are for fuel.

zoneofcontrol30 Mar 2017 7:01 a.m. PST

I have 1 water tank in HO RR scale. I also have one 1:1 scale water tank on the back of each of my toilets.

Not sure if they're all strictly water tanks but around a half dozen in 1/72nd.

One is a water tower that has been converted to a watch tower for fantasy / "don't look too closely" medieval games.

wizbangs30 Mar 2017 7:19 a.m. PST

None… so far

Thanks Gravitas; and you are most correct Sir.

John Treadaway31 Mar 2017 6:26 a.m. PST

gosh… You've reminded me to put my phone down and go back to work.

Or maybe read a book…

Or something…

Andy P Inactive Member03 Apr 2017 8:10 a.m. PST

Here is one from an actual battle around jandrenouille.
