Panzer Mech Kickstarter

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.
jotanI 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.

US Heavy Infantry

With the recent release of Konflikt ’47, I have been sorting through my Secrets Of The Third Reich force to see what will easily slot into the new Konflikt army lists.
US-Heavy-Armoured-Infantry-2
The heavy infantry in both games look very similar so can’t see a problem there.
US-Heavy-Armoured-Infantry-1
Although Konflikt uses a lot of standard WWII infantry, my armoured Westwind models will look even better. Most of the infantry are armed with a standard rifle and there are BAR and LMG options.

Their gasmasks and chest armour make the models look a bit more suited to the weird war setting.

The various Mechs in my American and German forces should also fall in nicely, but some of my custom models may need some house rules knocked up.

First game planned for Wednesday.

Once more on the Warzone trail, these second edition Great Grey and Purple Shark models were repainted for Secrets Of The Third Reich in American colours.

The plan was also to use them in a No Limits army…

…and maybe even Dust by creating some house rules for them…

Why stop there? Maybe they can be included in an AT-43 UNA force of some description.
