"As I dip my toes into the Weird War waters of Konflikt '47 I'm coming to appreciate the incredible latitude that "weird" allows the budget gamer. As has been seen in our recent Konflikt '47 battle reports, there's a huge range of miniatures that are suitable. From genre-specific Weird World War 2 (WWW2) lines like Dust, Secrets of the Third Reich, and Konflikt/Clockwork Goblin to historically-influenced sci-fi lines like AT-43, Wargames Factory Shock Troopers and Dreamforge Eisernkern, and of course the incredibly deep ranges of historical WW2 figures from companies like Black Tree Design (Harlequin), Artizan, Foundry, TAG, and many, many others. In some cases even some fantasy miniature lines may be useful if your campaign includes such popular weird war elements such as vampires, werewolves, demons and the occult…"

I've been painting up M-48s for my modern games. Using a plastic primer they take other paints well and are super cheap.

Those Pattons were .50 at the local Woolworth store in town around 1973-1975. Every week I would get one or two with my grandmother.
I imagine they met their demise, like all my other childhood toys, of being sold off at one of her many yard sales after I enlisted and left home. I also remember picking up original GI Joes at yard sales for a buck or so around the same time period.

Good lord where have all the good days gone?

Good story Tango…
