The Latest 15mm Madness: Finished and Based and Ready for Action!

As promised, shots of the finished Dread Cheddar Wedges of Death otherwise known as the new 15mm anti-grav AFVs from Darkest Star Games based on one of my original kitbashed creations! So, without further adieu about nothing:




One of the two new panzerknackers alongside one of the original kitbashed anti-grav panzerknackers for comparison:


And one of the new APCs besides its creative ancestor:

I am very pleased with the way that Darby was able to translate my kitbashed original through 3D into this new family of modular combat machines. These are available now through Darkest Star Games, and Darby has assured me that there will be more designs forthcoming based upon my kitbashing madness featured on this blog, so stay tuned to your TBD receivers for future announcements and other feats of creative madness and derring-do!

Oh, and silly me! Here's the link to the Darkest Star Games website: http://www.darkeststargames.com

  1. Those really are excellent. Do you have plans for a few purple armoured infantry? That would give a very cool finished effect, I suspect. I think the term Dread Cheddar Wedge needs to be used more often.

    1. I've been itching for an excuse to use more purple, and purple uniforms on ET grunts is as good an excuse as any... Glad ya likes 'em! :)

  4. Very lovely, Leland!
    I have found the rides for my Alien Legion tank commanders now! But I'm still going to look at crafting some other vicks as I have added all sorts of interesting bits to my huge " box-of-reclamation" ;)

    1. Darth Brom! Pardon my delayed response! I plead academic insanity and a week long insurgency inflicted upon us by our insanely intelligent and irresistibly adorable 4-year-old granddaughter infesting our home... ;)

      Glad to hear you find these suitable for your planet-conquering BEM legions! They were quite fun to create and then see become full blown production models courtesy of Darkest Star Games. Darby is supposed to have several others following this triangular design style on the 3D drawing board including one based upon the super heavy grav tank I made in 28mm scale from plastic pizza slice plates I picked up at a garage sale for a buck. The eventual DSG versions will be more manageable in 15mm scale, of course, and I suspect they'll be just as fetching painted up on the tabletop as these little meanies... >;)

      Great to hear from you, oh Dark Lord of the Bits Box! >;)
