More additions for the WW2 Desert collection this week.

2 x 28mm A9 Cruiser Tanks from Warlord Games join the ranks, paper thin armour on these but lots of MGs. Interested to know if anyone has used these in games, in rule sets they would be quite potent against Infantry will all that lead flying around but clearly the design was not a success, so how do you reflect that ?

Another go with the AK Interactive Caunter Paints but I have darkened off the Slate colour this time which I think looks better than the quite light version I did on the recent Rolls Royce Armoured Cars.

Straight into action on Saturday as we go Op Compass part 2.

In Bolt Action those would be killer. Ten dice for 2 MMG's on one target.
Does the model come with an option to build the CS version with the 3.7" gun?

Cheers Everyone.

14th NJ Vol, don't forget one in the main turret, that's 3 !

Sadly the model doesn't have any armament options.
