Tanksgiving Update: 5 Vehicle Mix!
My wife built the grey APC from the body of a cheap "Army Man" Patton tank. We are going to be using it for the Wolfhounds.
The green 6x6 is from Secret Weapons Games and it is the only "kit" model I have done for this project. It also cost about what the rest of the tanks in the project cost combined but it is a very nice model. If I had the budget I'd buy at least a squadron. I may pick up some more in the future.
The two smaller hover tanks in the front are based of a Matchbox toy. These "Douglas" Medium Hover tanks are for my Hell Knights. I already have one of these completed so this will bring me up to a full squadron.
The large hover missile launcher is a variation of my Landshark AFV called the "Hammerhead". It is also for my Hell Knights. It is built from a toy LAV-25 which came in a set from Dollar General and included the missile launcher as a tow behind weapon. I simply converted it into a missile turret.
Hopefully I will get these painted by tomorrow night.
