Tanks: The WWII Skirmish Game
I had a £25 Amazon voucher for Xmas, so had a look for something to blow it on and decided that the Gale Force Nine Tanks! starter set would be a good idea. I have read some positive reviews of this 'beer and pretzels' miniatures game and could use the 1/100 scale models for other things if I didn't like it, so it seemed like an opportunity to give it a try. I also added a second Panther to the order to use up the voucher and to make for a more interesting challenge for the US player. I think the boys will like this and will be keen to give it a go, although I quite like the idea of scaling it down to 1/144th and using pre-painted plastic tanks on a smaller area?
