Tiger I

The German heavy Tigers were the tank the Allies most feared when they landed in Europe. With exceptional armor and mounting the impressive 8.8cm gun, they were almost unstoppable, having taken a toll on Allied armor on the Eastern Front and North Africa where T-34 and Sherman tanks were incapable of stopping them.

TANKS at PAX

PAX, the Penny Arcade Expo, is a celebration of gaming. Started in 2004, it has now expanded to five locations, each of which has tens of thousands of attendees every year. PAX Australia, which started in 2013, is the first PAX outside of the United States.

People think of PAX as a show for computer gamers, but it has just as much to offer board and miniature gamers, too. While not quite as loud and flashy as the computer gaming hall, the tabletop area is nevertheless a huge and vibrant festival of gaming excitement.

This year Australian PAX-goers got a chance to try out TANKS, thanks to volunteers from the Bendigo & District Gamers’ Association (BADGA).

Puma Armored Recon

The Puma matched a fast and nimble armored car design with a reliable 50mm cannon that was capable of knocking out enemy Sherman and T-34 tanks. Of course this sometimes tempted the crews to pick fights that they otherwise should have avoided. As the war progressed the Pak Wagen version mounted a 75mm gun in place of the turret.

Mechanics Kit

Before a tank is ready to go to war it must be assembled by a team of skilled mechanics, using only the best tools. Having a mechanic on your crew is even more useful! They know their tanks inside and out and can get them back up and running after almost any hit.

Soviet M10 (Lend Lease)

We just added a spotlight for one of our new TANKS expansion coming out in November. The Lend-Lease program saw thousands of tanks supplied to the Soviet Union during the war. Amongst these were a small number of M10 tank destroyers that somehow found their way to the Eastern Front. Whilst not as heavily armed or armored as some Soviet designs, the turret meant it was one of the few self-propelled guns that could not easily be outflanked.
