Soviet Reinforcements!

Hey Internet,

Painted these up a little while ago - Five 'T-62 Main Battle Tanks' (by GHQ) and Two 'Heavy Assault Tanks'  (by Plasmablast Games).

They are painted in a 60's Soviet Green colour to match their commander, Nova Streltzý.

Together, these machines will form the balance of the Eastern Bloc factions 'normal army stuff' in my upcoming Japanese Monster Movie Games.

Fun Fact: The T-62 was used by the entire Eastern Bloc: the Soviet Union, Red China and North Korea. This means that I can keep the number of 'normal army tanks' that need buying and painting up to a minimum. What with all the radioactive dinosaurs stomping around, the chance of someone taking issue with the historical accuracy of the Commie Battle Robots supporting tanks is probably pretty low, but, well, you never know. T-62s also look really cool. Really, really cool.

As ever, the GHQ tanks were fantastic. In particular- they managed to cast the things with the mold lines, faint as they were, only crossing flat surfaces. Fantastic!

The Plasmablast tanks will play the part of the mighty Mammoth Tanks from the Command & Conquer series of video games.

I did a review a little while back on these beasts - but to reiterate; they are superb little things, attractively designed and well made, and were a real joy to paint. There's another one waiting in the wings for emolsification, but I've got something special planned for him.

So, what do you think?
