When I need a break from painting the rather large transport, I am returning to the excellent Westwind Mechs.
I am still deciding what colours to go for, one will likely be for my British Steampunk force so may be a patriotic red, white and blue. The other may get done in grey.
I had been doing a good job of keeping away from Kickstarters until a friend sent me a link this morning for one ending in a few hours…
This is a West Wind Kickstarter for some great Weird War II Mechs and I can’t resist a good Mech, or three.
I like the West Wind SOTR range and these new models will also be usable in Konflict 47, Steam Wars and some of the freebie stretch goals will be great in games like Rogue Stars.
As if cool Mechs are not enough, I like the look of this German ball tank, the Panzerkampfrad.
I am wondering if I can make up some rules for these old Warzone Purple Shark jet bikes for Konflikt ’47.
Maybe some sort of flying jeep profile, light armour but fast.
I have quite a few Capitol Warzone models painted up in US colours that I will have to proxy in to an army list.
I came across this prototype model made by now defunct 21st Century Toys. This baby is 2 feet tall apparently but would have made a really great looking Weird War Two mech for Secrets Of The Third Reich or Dust if scaled down to 28mm.
This is a Westwind Russian tank crew model that I have painted up to use as a pilot in my Regency steampunk army, matching up the red and blue with the rest of the models. Steam planes are coming…
He does look a bit zombie like as his eye have no pupils…which is not so noticeable at actual size.
