Small May update.

This weekend I worked on my Proxi Trencher tanks from my last post. I have 6 of them and will host 2 tank squads. Also I needed to dress them up a bit. So each squad will have a lead tank, and that tank will have a commander, and extra storage. Also I drilled out the main gun. The photos below are of the lead tank, and the squad. I plan to paint them in a desert color scheme. Over all I love these tank models. These are simple to build, cheap, and simple to covert. Thanks Proxi.

Here is a not so great photo of both squads with there support my Praetorian guard.

Digging through my bitz box I found this AA mecha I picked up years ago,  and thought it would be a great addon to this army.

Here is the Mecha next to a P guard.

New Tanks.

It has been a long time with out any word from me, well I have only this to say "being a Husband and a father takes all I have".

Well whit that being stated, I have been doing Soccer, and swimming with the kids on the weekend. I even got roped into being my son's coach. Then we have to get ready for the family vacation in two weeks, throw in my son's birthday party, and planing for that. I have all most no time for my self.

I did how ever manage to order some tanks from Proxi models. These are the Trencher Tanks. I would call them a look-a-like to another tank mini out there but I love them. I think the are just off enough to make them there own model. I have only put one together out of the 6 I ordered, and can not put it down when ever I pass it. The price it right as well. 3 tanks for $10.00, and for me it was $23.00 for 6 tanks and shipping. I also got the order 4 days after placing the order.
I really do not like his paint job, but you can get an idea of what they look like.

I will be using them as L3manru55 tanks. I am going to build two tank squads out of them, each with a demolisher in the rank.

Next to pick up is some thing from the new Art Crime Productions. I love the bikes, and they would make great scouts form my guard army. I was looking at the GZG bikes but I like these better.

Well that is it for now.
