15mm IDF Israeli Merkava Mark 4 Main Battle Tanks from.....

......Khurasan Miniatures.

Motivation and other factors have meant I didn't enter the Analogue Hobbies Painting Challenge this year, good luck to the brave 100 (except Ray)!

Theses were painted earlier in the year..........

These resin tanks with metal parts are from Khurasan and are very decent casts, very little fuss, no markings for them yet.

There is a 15mm IDF trooper for a little scale help.........



These are actual IDF Merkavas........

15mm Israeli and US M109 Self Propelled Howitzers from.....

......Battlefronts Team Yankee!

Painted a while ago and to be honest they are more scenery than anything as they have a real life conventional range of 18km but I like them, not the right version as well but they'll do me.Added some 15mm extras from the bitz box and there you go.......


They need some markings at a later date, the US one is painted Tallarn Sand from GW and the Idf pair are Sinai grey from the Vallejo model air range (lots of coats). Not a bad kit compared to some of the others in the range but the eyesight is fading and the 2 foot rule is in effect........


The M109 is an American 155mm self-propelled howitzer, first introduced in the early 1960s. It has been upgraded a number of times, most recently to the M109A7. The M109 family is the most common western indirect-fire support weapon of maneuver brigades of armored and mechanized infantry divisions.

More 15mm Hazmat Troopers for Zombie or even Modern Gaming.......

....and I see some of you are on SiteHoundSniffs.com 

Been a while but motivation is lacking a bit.........

I've had these for a while but you can't beat an old classic from Khurasan, these are more a military unit rather than the previous private contractor unit, I've always liked the fact they have mostly silenced weapons and flamethrowers!

They also remind me of the sardaukar from the movie Dune!









A site that is listing worthy sites and blogs under one of the headers Miniatures and Modeling, famous names are listed like Simon Miller, Loki, Anne O'Leary, Johnny Frandsen etc...... but then I  saw Ray's name and was a little disappointed to be honest...........they'll let anybody in!
