Yes I am glad I went with the Leopards instead of the Abrams.
As requested here a couple of group pictures and size comparisons, I also added a size comparison Ernie so to get a feel for the size of an infantry man.

Hi Flinty actually I missed the "Jagdpanther".

Totally missed to post that, thanks for the reminder!

The Idea behind the tank hunter came to me because I always loved the original Jagdpanther from WWII, even then a very modern looking tank for its time.
This way I could give the two tank platoons a little variation and I thought it would be a good idea integrate a tang buster with a battle field laser.
After finding a partly built 1/48 scale Tamia Jagdpanther by Ebay for a10€ I went for it straight away.

Of course I wanted to make the tank look a little more modern and gave it a "H.E.L.Laser" with which it could destroy any armoured vehicle with ease.

That's so awesome.
The mix of walkers and conventional tanks is awesome and they scale very well. Like the futurised jadgpanther and its giant laser, which I guess would modernise most tank killers.
Did you have any problems finding stuff that scaled and looked right?
The drones on the tanks are a nice touch, what did you use for them?

Welcome Imperial Templari, thanks to you to. Yes there are a lot of little things to see and think about on the bases, the larger the base the more information

Indeed they scale well and who is not to say that tanks will not get slightly bigger.
Due to the fact that I had a few 1/48 scale tanks I could already see that they would scale up nicely, it was just a choice of which tanks to use, in my case the Leopard II A6
The Vipers are a little large thow I did shorten them and when compared to the size of an actual F18 scaled down to 1/56scale they are actually smaller. So when compared to the modern military counterpart they do actually fit.
So no real problems finding the right scale. I just used Wiki and recalculated the scales for 1/56 - 1/48 scale models and went on from there.

Each vehicle will get its own drone, the larger ones 2 or 3. makes sence in a way as it gives the tank a longer fighting distance and the "over the horizon" view of the battle field
The drones are from Warlord games "gates of Antares"

I have several airfix 48th scale landrovers. They're square on scale with my soldiers( Victoria Miniatures, anvil Industry and plastic cadians) so I the tanks are not really out of scale. Its just that tanks are quite big!

BTW I call bs on 28mm scale being 1/56 because they're only 28mm if you measure to the figure's eyes.(. which is bizarre and stupid in my logic) Aprox 31mm from top of heads which is surprisingly about average height for a male 1/48th figure.

The unfortunate thing I find is 1/48th scale is still an uncommon scale for land vehicles. Its basically limited to Tamiya.

Yes indeed that fits just fine.
I also find you are absolutely correct on the 28/32mm and 1/56 scale subject.

There are a few other companies like Akademy and a few others that produce 1/48 scale tanks thow you can not compare them to the amount of producers for 1/35 scale, shame.

So here the second "Phantom Dragon" I am working on, not quite finished but well on its way.

Even if I have mentioned it before just for good measure:

The idea behind this unit is theta the walker would engage a tank unit in close combat at lightning speed. Taking apart the tracks and decapitating the barrel leaving the tank units useless.
Although it was a little to sci fi for me I added a large jump pack to the model as it seemed just to cool to leave away.
Lesser armoured then the standard armoured Paladin walker they have a higher attack speed and the jump pack.

So you could imagine the unit of two "Phantom Dragons" dropping down on the enemy and as soon they have decimated the first tank they jump to the next, avoiding enemy fire as they go.

Again I wanted a different menacing appearance to the other mech walkers so I used 3rd party bits to alter them

Yes the sparks were a little idea I had while playing around with static grass. I suppose you could get it done better if you took the time and sorted them in to one direction

At long last I have basically finished the special Ops drop ship and Miniatures.
I will present the special ops unit separately when the bases are done.

I wanted to keep it dark so no real paint wonders but the base fits the scene well I think, what do you guys think?




"Special Ops Drop ship"
"Black Dragon" BD- 239"
and
"Special Ops Unit"




























I did try to get all the details though there are so many it is hard to get them all on a picture, the flats have full interior, windows on all floors and a coke vending machine in the lobby
As usual the base can be used as a terrain piece and the different levels can be removed.
The special ops team are only pinned so they can be removed for play on their own bases if needed.

Nice mix of Anvil grenadier heads and Forgeworld drop bodies. Really works for near future. Never really considered dark red visors but they look mint.

Do you use Antenocitis workshop survival cars for basing?

Love the graffiti, nice touch and it really does add to that story of the collapse of order in the city/planet.
Its always a pleasure to see your work.

Exactly, a small story in each model, but not just a diorama but also a playable unit and in most cases a usable piece of terrain.

Hello and welcome Ezki!
Very glad you like the stuff, its is a lot of fun putting some real life into the army and the environment the "work" in.

The main part of the buildings is made of foam board, which is very stable and can be cut with a simple cutter knife.
Please do ask any questions you might have!
