This year’s theme for Historicon is “100 Years of the Tank”. That seemed like a perfect excuse to getting really cracking on a project I’ve been kicking around on for a couple of years now – the tanks battles in North Africa using the really nice 3mm armor from Picoarmor. I had picked up some of these in the past to use as targets in Check Your 6! games and was really, really impressed by the detail and intrigued by the possibility of doing a unit based game where the stands really look like units and not individual tanks. A while back I bought a bunch of German tanks and experimented with painting and basing, but the project got sidetracked by various other games.
