That T90 looks like some kit! What set up are you going with for your moderns, an imagi-nation, real life setting, etc?

I might check out that show. And thanks for sharing your great work.

At Warfare I bought a sprue each of Bolt Action US and Soviet infantry to build some Us and Soviet equipped infantry. I have a number of Wargames Factory sprues to supply M16s and AK47s.





The guns do look a bit large and some filling is still required.

Nice to see that they work well together. I was thinking of doing something similar for some 1950s-1980s imagination action. With the police and 2-3rd tear troops armed with WW2 surpluses and the front line regulars armed with modern for that era.

Looking good.  The red-lensed jammer stuff on that tank is super creepy to watch in real life.  lol
