We previewed all of these last month and Dave's got them through the moulding process quickly and ready for release.  This lot covers a wide period of time, from the end of WWII right through to the 1980's in some cases.  We've got the Gorilla and the Duster, a few SPG's, a pair of APC's and a couple more Centurions as well!

We'll have some of these with us at the Colours show next weekend, but if you'd like to pre-order any for collection just drop us an email.

Ooh, lots of lovelies on that webstore page.

Wish I'd known about the "seperate tracks for turrets" when I was converting my Panther/M10. Never mind  Sad

Lemmy the Conway is a 120mm armed Centurion which was not produced because of the Conqueror and the 105mm L7
As for not being Modern some of the vehicles above where still in service in the 80's

To be pedantically accurate we could term them "post war".  As the first AFVs after WW2 they are often overlooked in wargames.  I see a lot of potential with the Korean era range in early NATO proxies.  We just need 1950s/early 60s Soviet infantry.   It gives an extended life to BKC rules.

The game changers in armoured warfare were (a) the wire guided missile, and (b) spaced armour such as  Chobham. They changed tactics and the deployment of armour/infantry defence.  Can we argue a post war parenthesis  prior to the adoption of these weapon systems ?

In the case of the Middle East, the innovative Sagger did not make an impact until Yom Kippur - but that's another story.

As for them being modern, they're modern when compared to, say a Sumerian Ass Chariot.

 Wot!? The Sumerian Donkey Cart is surely at the cutting edge of modern military hardware!

Oh dear! Maybe time to paint some WW2 Germans before I'm wandering around the house in a sheepskin kilt and posting here in cuneiform! Smiley

Does beg the question; what would an ass chariot look like? and, surely, it sounds like one for the fantasy range.

I have found a suitable picture - but forum rules explicitly forbid such unsightly depictions.

Are you sure you're not thinking of an arse charriot? Undecided

Over the years many vehicles have served the purpose, but the one thing they always have in common is a pair of furry dice hanging from the rear-view mirror…  I don't want to see

the picture of the ass chariot I found had two things dangling, and they did have some hairs on them, but they definitely weren't dice!  Sick

Might be  Wink
