Hey Folks,

Can someone tell me if the individual tanks, available from Gale Force Nine for their Tanks game, are the same as the BattleFront FOW plastic models?

Seems like a good way to pickup a single vehicle to round out a unit.

Yes, they are the same.

Yes but all the GF9 Tanks packs I have seen do no come with decals so you need to factor that in.

Yeah, it's kind of annoying that you have to buy the decals too. Since TANKS is stand-alone game and intended to popular by virtue of its low cost, it wouldn't have killed them to toss some generic national markings and a few number options.

Still, though, the decal sheets that are available will do many tanks and they have kept the cost down for the individual models. So I guess it's a trade-off that can go either way depending on your point of view.
