After going all Renaissance like, I took a little break this week to give the Early WW2 Desert Collection a little love and attention by adding a couple more of these "Beasts". 28mm models from Warlord.

With 14mm of Armour max, you needed to be a brave soul to get into action in one of these. Thankfully they had mostly gone by the time the Germans turned up with some proper tanks. Against a CV35 Tankette they weren't that bad.

I love these early tanks, don't know why, just do. Loads more pics etc on the main blog post.

Great work! I have to admit I am very fond of the early war tanks as well

Love the early tanks with their pop gun armaments. Ah! The30/40mm guns and Boys anti-tank riles.

Those are just great! As Crisp wrote in The Gods Were Neutral, they were designed to throw tracks.

The Mighty A9.
Hopefully it starts up and makes it into battle.
More nice looking stuff from you Ken!

Very well done I fully appreciate how difficult the Caunter scheme is to replicate on a model and I think you have done a great job. Having painted a 15mm Honey in the scheme , I know how difficult it is and it drove me nuts studying the diagrams .

After looking at stuff like this I don't think it will be long until I get drawn into the desert war 👍

If tanks are your thing then desert war may just be your ticket .

Lovely stuff – two 303 machine guns at the front, anti infantry tanks
