Epic fail on my part, but can anyone tell me what the tank is?


Also an ID on the infantry would be nice – I remember reading a review which matches the MG team on the left, but can't remember the manufacturer.

The tank appears to be an AMX 30 although I have no idea who made it.

Infantry on left might be CinC Squad Leader weapons team. No idea what infantry on right is.

Picture is kinda small but the turret says AMX30 to me. I looked up Scotia, Irregular and H&R and none have pics, but Irregular doesn't have one in the catalog. They may have at one time.

I believe the casting on the right is a Scotia UK LMG team.

Yeah I'd go with those IDs and that they are from Scotia … They don't make some of the "better" 6mm, generally, IMO …

I thought I had an AMX-30 from H&R from back in the day, and I do. I think the AMX 30 maybe their's and from 30-40 years ago. All the bits look very close.

I think the textured base infantry are from Irregular Minis…….always look much better painted too!

The stand on the right is from Scotia I think. The other two are probably best ID'd by the folks above.

@Stephen M
It's one of 3 that came from an eclectic batch of second hand stuff that includes a lot of older looking H&R stuff – including some AMX 10P APCs – so that all makes sense.

Probably should have ID'ed the tank properly before painting – thought it was Leo I in passing and slapped a coat of olive drab on it. D'oh!

Thanks guys
