Re: What a tanker! anyone?

The cards are there simply as one-off bonuses if you decide to play a series of encounters, with crew becoming aces in a loose type of campaign. This is where the "World of tanks" influence shines through the clearest, but as such the cards are in no way a requirement to play and enjoy this game.

Re: What a tanker! anyone?

"What a Tanker" may be a silly name for a rule set, but the game itself is what you make of it. I don't care if people decide to play un-historically or see it as the tabletop equivalent of "World of tanks". That's entirely up to them, and absolutely none of my business... I see it as rules that I c...

Re: What a tanker! anyone?

Have played it and liked it quite a lot - easy to set up, reasonably fast to play and a surprisingly deep tactical edge to it! The last isn't really that much of a surprise, as it's what I have come to expect from Too Fat Lardies... Works great as a mellow-down fix after a hard-fought game of Battle...

Re: Town road try-out

Update: I received the 15mm rolling pins, and have done up a new test-piece. I slapped on some brown, cheap acrylic paint, and added greys and some washes. In hindsight, I should have sealed the foamboard with some thinned down PVA prior to painting, as they are a bit absorbant and fuzzy now... The ...

Town road try-out

https://i.imgur.com/K8VfG5r.jpg?1 With the intention of making some town roads, I bought this pavement pattern rolling pin from Greenstuff world - it's the one for 28mm, so I've been trying it out on a piece of foamboard to see how it scales with 20mm, and in a word: not so good... What do you guys...

Re: A couple of German vehicles from the Normandy campaign

Thanks for the kind words! Yes - I would say that the zimmerit is very much worth it, as it's very easy to manipulate on the model ( I've dealt with PE zimm in the past, and that seems to require a full apprenticeship as a blacksmith at times...). Be aware that the zimm looks a bit rounded over the ...

A couple of German vehicles from the Normandy campaign

I built this Stug a couple of years ago, but always felt it should have had zimmerit added to it, as it's meant for wargaming after D-day in Normandy. I jumped on the Monroe Perdu paper zimmerit set the day it was released, but other distractions left it sitting in the box until last night. Not the ...
