Needless to say, you can expect a Kickstarter-related announcement within the next few days, too!
Needless to say.

Imprint models were a class A company. With them coupling with Empress I think it will be great for us 28mm modern players. Hopefully we will see some 28mm Chinese vehicles now as well.

That armor is beautiful--and I don't even do modern stuff!

Super stuff. This may be a project for after I finish my 15s.

This is an outstanding match-up! 28mm modern gamers have cause to cheer!

Bob is a class act and has helped me out with amazing deals. I can only hope Empress keeps up his outstanding service.

And here in the states Steve of Age of Glory carries both Empress and Imprint. I plan on doing some 28mm Force on Force or Cold War Gone Hot using the Empress and Imprint models.

OK, here is a debate that circles around my gaming group in regards 28 mm vs 15 mm or smaller sizes/ scales for moderns-is 28 mm too large to have vehicles on the table such as MBTs? While I personally feel the answer is yes as long as you have a scenario that works with the scope of the game size one has to be careful about having too many tanks. In other words if I was running a 28mm modern game, say a Cold War Gone Hot, there might be one M1 Abrams on the table or a couple of T-90s or T-80s, or T-72s. You would not get into tank platoon or companies in a 28mm game. Regardless the setting with have to be heavy terrain as in urban or forest so that the tanks would have a reason for such point blank engagements.
This is believable when you read about the tank engagements during the Yom Kippur War. The were many battles where the tanks were almost barrel to barrel to each other. Normally this was due to both sides turning a corner or some such and going OH F
.! Who ever pull the trigger first normally came off the better. And of course a tanker with out infantry support will not last long in such settings. What are your thoughts as I am really digging getting some of these vehicles.

I'd say tanks in this scale would best be used on one side only in more of a support role for the infantry than anything else. Tank-on-tank at these ranges would be over before you know it.

So any chance AAG and the Empire team up for a supplement for this setting? That would push me over the top to jump on board.

I have purchased both when they were separate companies and they do mix well together. I do hope they add more to the vehicle line.
