A couple of weeks ago, while at Salute, I picked up a copy of What a Tanker! by TooFatLardies. I had a long chat with the guys before the show opened and was impressed with the simplicity of the rules that conceal a whole sub level of subtlety and nuance that make this look like a very interesting and fun game to play. My initial intention was to play using my 6mm tanks (and I may still do that) but for a first play test I decided to break out some of my 15mm tanks and terrain. Unfortunately I sold most of my vehicle collection a few years ago, keeping back a selection of models for display... only one of which had a rotatable turret. After a bit of thought I found this Cromwell in my cupboard of shame and last night I gave it a very quick paint job.
The whole model took less than an hour to paint, with a little overnight drying and a quick coat of varnish this morning. The turret is magnetised so I can rotate it and I even added some textured 'mud' to the tracks and lower hull.
Now it's ready for action against my only other 'game ready' tank, a Panzer IV H, so I had better finish reading the rules!
