Are you a serious Tred head but have a sense of humor about your hobby? Welcome to ToonKrieg, a not so serious rendering of World War 2 as it actually was in the cartoons.

I am a big fan of the Toon Tanks models made by Meng models, but hate that they are all different scales. So, I decided to start making my own Toon tanks. This then quickly expanded into Infantry and anti-tank guns, and I am planning on adding a lot more. What do you think?

Very cool models. It's not clear from the website though, is it $10.00 USD for a physical squad or for an STL file? Also, will you be doing US troops?

Well, they're certainly cute, but why?

I like them too, and why? Why not :)

They are being sold as digital STL files for 3D printing. I would like to eventually do US troops also, but that will depend on how much interest there is.

I did them for the fun of it. I use them to play wargames that have more abstract but still fun rules. I figured that as long as the rules are "cartoon rules", that the miniatures probably should be also.

Nice looking. I can appreciate the cartoon look and your skills as a sculpture.

John, I think people do things, why? Because they enjoyed the task and that's what a hobby is about?

I love these

I think they are cool. I always thought Britannia figures were "cartoon" looking figures as well.

I don't game WWII, but I might collect these for small "Sgt Rock" comics style skirmish games. I really like the cartoon style.
