Our talented modellers have been busily working on some more revamped vehicles for our WWII range, so here's a few quick sneaky pics to whet the appetite!  (I know Mart's put some pics of these up previously, but it's always worth another look!)  We'll be getting these moulded up asap and we'll let everyone know when they become available.

After we got the Humber LRC modelled we quickly realised that our original Humber A/C was a little small!  So, we've now got this revamped version, complete with Mk II and Mk III turrets.



Tiger I with zimmerit, in both early and late variants:



Sturmtiger:



And then this little selection, I'll leave it open to everyone to identify these ones!

p.s. I'll have an Achilles too, please...

But on a less joyous note, I have a revamped Tigger, and the tracks (not the wheels, just the tracks) are a bit... well, overstated... vast, foot thick things with excessively exaggerated tread (or whatever it's called on tracks). Otherwise lovely...

So from the top I'm thinking, M10 Achilles, M10 Wolverine (I'll have one of those for my Soviet forces), M3 Lee ... but what's the bottom one?

Thanks Wulf, not a tank that I'm familiar with, though I did go look it up after you mentioned it recently so have no excuse for not recognising it!

Lets hope it sees more action on the tabletop than it did irl  Smiley

Well, in real life it trained a lot of troops then equipped the post war Netherlands, but, yes, not an illustrious career in terms of battle honours...

hmm... I see this one has no stowage box on the back of the turret. That seems common from pics. I'll have to make me mid up whether to go historic or cut up a little box for myself...

Your Humber III looks to have a 37mm rather than a besa to me making it a mark IV but does not have the revised stowage arrangement on the right side of that version.

Some nice new additions. I really must get my WWII kit out again as I've been playing so much BP era games of late.

Is that because you didn't know?

I'm an absolute sucker for small armour.

And Large armour.

All very useful.

I was thinking that, on consideration. Wrong turret bustle/counterweight, no muzzle brake. Hopefully an Achilles to follow.

Ah well, in my defence, I don't tend to pay too much attention to the side-shows in Africa and NW Europe, preferring to concentrate on the important theatres of the war Smiley

A Ram is a great little tank for its tier. Better protected than the M4.  Lots of great counterfactual war and post war potential.  See my thread in the rules section.
Can we get a please get the long barrel 6pdr version ?

I think that IS the 6 pounder version. That's as long as it gets.

World of Tanks guns show extreme degrees of compensating for something on virtually every tank, but the Ram is secure in it's own barrel length...
