S-Tank (Stridsvagn 103C) for Seven Days to the River Rhine.

Hi everyone.

This weekend I sat down and painted up a platoon of S-tanks or Stridsvagan 103C as the Swedish called there unique tank.  These are 3d printed 15mm models that I purchased from Butlers Printed Models (BPM)

  The tanks painted up really well and I liked how they turned out. Now these are for use with Seven Days to the River Rhine set of rules that I have purchased. The rules do not come with data on the Swedish Army and equipment but they have a great community on Facebook and I asked what stats I should use for the Swedish S-Tank. The answer came from the author of the rules, Roger Gerrish.

He suggest the following stats for the S-Tank:

Let me know what you think and I will work on some more miniatures and get some more stats for the Swedish Units.

Have a good week.

15mm tanks for Seven Days to the River Rhine

Hi everyone,

Well you may see that I am doing a lot of painting for different games and different scales. Some of the projects I am working on will be long term projects and some are planned to be short. This is one of those projects. 

Recently I read a review of the rules "Seven Says to the River Rhine" and I liked what I heard and I decided to get a copy. I have never been a fan of some of the other rules for the cold war gone hot but these rules seem to meet my likes.

I am also trying something new. I have ordered some 3d Printed 15mm Tanks and APC's, from BPM miniatures. I got 3 S-tanks, one BMP-2, and 2 T-72's o try out.  So far I am happy with them, there is a little processing and cleaning up that needs to be done but after that they paint up nice.

I have painted up the Soviet vehicles. They came out pretty good. I will start working on the S-tanks soon. I have read from a fellow gamer at the club that some of the members of my local club are starting to play some games of Seven Days to the River Rhine.  I have a BTR-80 and some other modern infantry painted up from some of my other games.  

 I hope to get more figures painted up to get into a game at the club.  
Let me know what you think of the tanks and vehicles. Have a good week!

Bag the Hun cards

Hi everyone,

So I got my first set of cards in the mail a while back and I wanted to show you the finished product. These are the data cards for the aircraft. I will do a separate post of the activation cards needed for Bag the Hun.

I am very happy with the way these cards came out. They are printed on a standard poker card size card. The cards are good and sturdy and I really like the way they feel. I also got two plastic boxes for storing the cards in.
