Is there some treadhead in-joke I'm not getting, here? Just wondering :)

Round 10 is a bonus round:
Quote
Round 10 – Women

Paint a team of 5 or more female figures and gain 10 bonus points. Paint a team of 5 or more female figures AND an accompanying 'big thing' (e.g. a vehicle, large animal or creature, ship, siege engine or structure, aeroplane, armoured fighting vehicle, spacecraft) and gain 20 bonus points.

XCIV has tried both ^_^

I'm aware of the bonus round, I was just wondering if the tanks were "female" in some more direct sense - like if the WW1 terminology of "male tanks" and "female tanks" had survived into WW2 in some way I didn't know about.

But anyway, I get the in-joke now. "Honeys", heh :)

Glad you guys enjoyed the pun. Those can back fire on you, you know...

Honestly, I just didn't have quite enough time to do one little thing on the tanks before I had to snap them and send the shot in: an aerial with pennant for the command tank. Ah well, I'm pretty happy with how they came out, and it's another platoon for my growing FOW 8th Army forces.
