Historicon 2017 Report
What a weekend!  We had four events running throughout the convention, one team tournament, one huge mega-battle and two Nationals tournaments. Despite the convention seeming to have fewer people at it this year we were pleased to see the pace of activity around our games remained high and drew a lot of attention.

Chris' DAK

Chris Joins The Afrika Korps?
Part 2 - Would the Real DAK Sand Please Stand Up
With so many projects on the go I've been making glacial progress on my DAK. Of course they have been on my "to-do" list for years so slowly working on them won't be the end of the world. This week I take a look though my pile of paints to come up with a plan for how I will paint them.

T-64 Tankovy Company (Plastic)
The T-64 tank was a second generation tank design that first entered service in 1967 to replace the older first generation tanks. It features many innovative design features.

The T-64 has improved armour protection compared to previous Soviet tanks and was also the first Soviet tank to be fitted with an autoloader, which allowed for the reduction of the turret size by removing the need for a loader crewman.

SA-8 Gecko

SA-8 Gecko SAM Platoon
The SA-8 Gecko is a highly effective mobile air-defence missile system that incorporates both its engagement radars and missile launchers in one vehicle. This allows it to detect, track, and engage aircraft independently.

Its SA-8 surface-to-air missiles are further enhanced by a radar guidance system that can guide two missiles simultaneously. It also has a back-up electro-optical guidance system that can be used if the radar is jammed by ECM (Electronic Counter Measures).
