    I will be having an operation soon and will be unable to work, but I still want to be part of the hobby so whilst I recover and to keep my spirits high I offer you the chance to win an Ali-minium style Boreas. Just write a comment in THIS topic about what you would do with it if you win, is it tank carrier, repair bay, etc? You write me something interesting and I will pick a winner.

    Boreas 11cm length mega tank in terms of 6mm

    Ali-minium: Aluminium powder added to resin

    It would make a great field HQ for your army, with the back section used as a helipad or UAV launchpad.

     

    Either that or convert one into an armed Arctic exploration vehicle, for travelling far from civilisation and performing research! A dinghy or motor launch in the back, maybe a crane.

    I would have it all crashed and listing on its side.
    It would be long since crippled and will have been taken over by some Junkers.
    They will have added lean to’s and scaffolding, made structures around it and covered the bay to make a sort of market area.
    A little settlement in the Badlands.

    But, even that has been abandoned, something drove the Junkers off, or worse, killed them?

    Now, it is a once former glory of its once former glory.

    An overgrown reminder of a war long forgotten, reclaimed by nature…

    I’d write a supplement for Horizon Wars allowing players to take superheavy tanks with transport bays.  No, wait.  I already did that!  Damn.

    Well, in honour of the fact that it looks a bit like a hovercraft, I’d use it to playtest and illustrate my rules for landing craft and other “routes to battle” that I’m writing rules for at the moment to go into the Operation Plantagenet expansion.  I love the idea of this baby ploughing up a beach, laying down brutal firepower on enemy positions before going firm and unleashing a P3 mech from the back to go stomping further up the beachhead.

    I’d use it as a superheavy battle transport carrying a company of 3mm scale United Nations Heavy Armor, making an amphibious attack across the Baltic Sea in the First Upheaval, to support the beleaguered Latvian Army.

    I’d make this an amphibious assault unit for my Battletech force. I’d mount 6mm infantry on plasticard cut to fit the bay for when it’s transporting a platoon. The rest of the time, I would either use it as a landing craft for delivering tanks or vehicle units to the front, or for delivering a MASH unit into a hot zone. I don’t think the back would be big enough to add a VTOL unit, but it could be modified to be a drone carrier, or a supply vehicle (cargo container could be scratch built to fit in the back). – Tony

    I would have to remove the turret and replace it with a command ‘bridge’……after all such ‘super weapons’ were declared illegal by the Sol Treaty of Armament Limitation and Deployment (STALD).

    So it would become my MASH unit, reasonable protection, mobility and fast with easy access loading bay for field amblances….

    I would use it as a foundation of a 6mm army for the Old Striker rules. I can see many other purchases that would have to be made from you. The main use of course would be to justify these purchases to my lovely wife. I won the big expensive piece so I only need to by a few more things….

    I would add it to the ranks of many makers of miniatures over the years I have collected.  I would put your name upon it to remember where it came from and when asked I would tell this tale of you and it.  This is not an easy industry to be in and often ranges just vanish.  I do not expect to win but I wanted to wish you all the best.

    I see it as one of a number of siege assault guns.  The fins in the back shelter an organic complement of armored combat engineers.  I see specialized units of these operating under the aegis of top tier houses and a central government with tenuous control.  They operate in a universe which is about two parts Dune, and one part Hammer’s Slammers.

    Amphibious assault craft for the Heavy Gear Universe. It’s 12mm, but it’d fit perfectly with the tanks and Gears of Terra Nova.

    Also, really hoping that your operation goes well, man. Prayers up. Here’s to you coming out safe and sound, and healing swiftly.

    I’d add a control bridge, some smaller defence turrets and a crane to the rear bay to aid in maintenance and recovery.

    Then I’d scratch build a second similar vehicle, load one with some GZG not-votoms hound dogs and the other with some fatties and use them as land battleships with mecha fighter screens to play desert landship battles.

    Ok, now I really want one…

    Oh Ali you sneaky bastard..😜

    Well that’s a turn up for the books, most unexpected, I was taken by the recovery/drone carrier idea…….

    Cheers Ali!

    Not saying I wouldn’t have liked one myself, but Gary’s idea is really interesting! I look forward to seeing it!

    Glad you seem to be on the mend, Ali!

    So I wanted to share having received my Boreas.

    Heavy Gear figures for size comparison.

    Next to the new MHT-95 by Heavy Gear's plastic starter set for the Earth forces (CEF).

    Ah, I see the photos now. Great work! Looking at this I suddenly find the military ambulance / MASH theme in miniature surprisingly appealing. It conveys the implication that there is more to the world being modelled and gamed than just a lot of front-line combatants killing each other. My mind is beginning to fill in the blanks, picturing the surrounding terrain and even the people milling about inside of the vehicle.

    The flying ambulances are a good touch, they bring a sense of activity.

    That is a brilliant flavor piece Gary, very nicely done!

    I’m reasonably pleased with the result, followed the original MASH idea, olive green with traditional red on white crosses,not too dirty as it has ‘dust-off’ configuration….it was meant to be numbered 4077 too but I couldn’t get decals to work\fit……..toying with a mobile workshop/recovery version too, that would also be stripped of its mega gun but fitted with some ciws and missile pods…….and a crane……both units would ‘fit’ with my French Legion armoured task force…..
