Here's an idea. Mount your figures on live insects instead of horses, and then you could have a 'real life' alternative history game! Just point the armies against each other, and watch the game unfold.


Or here if you don't like FaceBook (but the background music isn't as appropriate):

I wonder if that would work with Horse Flies.

You could put REAL caterpillar track on WW2 tanks!

If it's going to go that slow, you need to at least slap some MG sponsons on it. Maybe a little matchstick ditching beam.

Were any insects hurt in the making of this film?

Hurt? No, but many were finally given employment.

Hurt? The staff probably stir fried them and ate them afterwards for their protein fix.
