Tanker's Tuesday : 10 Most Insane Main Battle Tanks

 Often we receive many questions which is the best main battle tank in the world. Which is the greatest modern MBT and why. Our Top 10 analysis is based on the combined score of protection, firepower, accuracy and mobility. None of the tanks listed here have seen combat against each other during military operations yet. And even though some things, such as armor composition, are kept in high secrecy, we know a lot about these machines. Data on their protection, firing range, accuracy, capabilities of their fire control systems, and so on are widely available. So we know capabilities of each of these tanks. This analysis is based on specifications and available data.Top Ten Main Battle Tanks

15mm Modern/Sci-Fi Rubble Scenery Bodging........

Wow.....another post........These bad boys are for my city streets for the modern or sci-fi gaming, they are based on old DVD movies discs I was sent but were awful( I think one starred Vinnie Jones in a recent flick), the contents of the bases were found in the bits box ( a mixture of 15mm and HO scale) and the field I live in......I wanted them to be the one colour to show that the thick city dust has settled on everything but nature has started to make it's presence felt......Working on a couple of others to finish the set and today I reached a milestone...50, no not stone.....years old!Who would have thought it.........

A care package, eye moisture and I'm coming back........again!

Ray has been nagging me about my blogging output this year and I was bitching about him not sending my goddaughters Christmas present from last year, so slackbladder says that he would be at the other Partizan and did I want anything, I initially ( after initial paralysis) said a couple of MDF bases and some basing material if he was feeling flush ( if you knew the old Ray this was funny).Then a couple of days ago this arrived, a little battered and bruised.........The top box contained the unpainted 28mm Trelawney's  Dumbarton's Regiment of Foot 1685 and after noticing the little hole I'm hoping the whole amount he sent too!Speechless........The air was quite dusty that day and some random air blown grit caused some moisture to accumulate in my ocular region, now a lot of you fellow bloggers and people who have met Ray have said what a bollox he is but finally he is a good sweet caring bollox!Cheers Ray!Now back to blogging (feeling a lot better) I continue with my 15mm modern and sci-fi work when
