Roman General and his standard bearers

Roman General and his 2 standard bearers, new commission for Masterclass from Italy, fun to do I never did figures like this before except for a couple of normal Romans soldiers years ago, it was a bit of a challenge but in the end they ended up looking pretty good if I say so myself.

PS the General only looks a little bit like Maximus :)

the 54mm figures I was asked to base the 1/72 figures on

any as always thanks for watching and feel free to comment

Russian patent scissor tank

Im calling it a scissor tank as I have not a clue what the real name would be.

The idea behind it was making a low as possible tank, but if its low climbing over objects will be hard so half way there was a way to bend, this would lift up the back thanks to a sliding weight, I guess that it would then drive backwards over a object which is a bit weird. The tracks where made of canvas reinforced with steel wire, which saved me a lot of time cutting tracklinks, for now its done bit I do want to add more detail in the future, things like air intakes, exhausts are not shown on the drawing but needs to be added as well
