From Curt:Wonderful work David and welcome aboard! These are great models - the various weapon systems look suitably ferocious and I really like the camo scheme you went with. I'm not familiar with the 5150 game system so I look forward to seeing the rest of your forces spool off your hobby desk in the coming months.

From DavidB - 15mm Humvee Armoured Cars (24 points)
Apologies all, and to myself for the late entry. Work, Holidays, kids, hunting and woods have kept me really busy! I still managed to paint all day Sunday last and a few hours this morning.
Get used to the ruins! The Games Workshop LotR ruins were among all the items I was prepping for the Challenge.
Since I haven't painted anything since last January, I used them to work out the kinks and get geared up!
The Vicks are from Rebel Minis and are resin and metal hybrids with the chassis, tires and weapons being white metal and the bodies resin.
They are up armored HumVees and MATV although they have other names on the web site. I used MATV overseas and have more time in Hummers to not recognize them! It is also why I used a different paint than Sand!
All four are stock assembly, but I added assault packs from Khurasan Seal team for interest on the MATVs. ( They'll be painted as Rangers for my Scfi Terra Force) I gave a Hummer the old ma duce because it is that awesome and a MATV has a chain gun because they are fun too.
The other weapon system is the MK19 grenade launcher which is a fearsome weapon and why the Terra Force has TWO!
These are my first ever 15mm and part of a big present from my wife and kids who purchased 5150 star army and the Terra Force to be Op4 to my Alien Legion which was also gifted from my family. They are all upcoming in the Challenge!
