In case anyone was wondering  The blood-markers were where my first rifle squad was wiped out.

Some great photos and models. Like the T3 and peashooter.

Here are a few pics of 1920s or 1930s limousine that I did a little work on  to convert it to the Madhi's personal ride.  I got the limo at a local used toy/collectible store and luckily it was no problem to remove the white plastic canopy and back seat so I had easy access to the rear compartment.  The Madhi is from Pulp Figures and I think his "consort" is from a gothic horror line (but I can't remember the manufacturer).  The food is HO scale (I think the mfr is Preiser) and I cut the "carpets" out of an ancient history magazine.  Had to do a little surgery on the Madhi and the driver to get them to fit but I didn't have any trouble with the consort.

I converted it from a BT-5 (I can't remember the manufacturer).  As far as I know the only place you can get an actual 1/56 or 1/48 scale T-3 is on Shapeways from a vendor called Articskunk.  The only problem with the model is that it is made from super thin plastic (I know because I ordered one).  If you are planning on ordering one I would recommend contacting the seller and asking if the model could be made of thicker plastic.  Other than that it's a good kit.  Hope this was useful.

The issue there is that Shapeways charges by material volume, among other factors, so making the shell thicker will also make the model much more expensive.

Last Friday we had "The Battle of Rancho Cordova" at our local game hangout.  This was a meeting engagement between the trotskyite federales  and the Swiss League with each force entering at opposite ends of the table on parallel roads with the goal to exit the opposite edge while inflicting as much damage as possible on the other player.  The game began as you would
 expect but the outnumbered federales quickly went to ground and fought a mainly defensive fight while the numerically superior Swiss were much more aggressive.  The outgunned federales gave a good account of themselves and inflicted some serious losses on the Swiss but were eventually forced from the field.  Photos below.
