I do not have any other gamers around so sometimes I just like to get out some miniatures and combine my love for Micro Armor with my love for photography and just have a little photo shoot. Here’s today’s effort.

After my mini GHQ rant
Just hours after ranting about the lack of US anti-aircraft artillery available from GHQ I started working on designing a Patriot Launcher in 285th scale. Here is the beginning of the drawing.
I’m going to play around with this design very slowly, hoping that GHQ beats me to it. They have a surprise November release coming that some people predict will be a Patriot or a THAAD … here’s hoping they are right.
Working on some Anti-Aircraft Artillery, and a little GHQ rant
I love GHQ Micro Armor so much that I made a blog about it, I don’t think my devotion to the company and their products can be argued … but I swear, if they don’t come out with some modern US anti-aircraft artillery (Patriot or THAAD) pretty soon I’m going to scream.
Our choices for modern US air defense are pretty limited, you’ve got the M163 Vulcan which is far from modern and you’ve got the M998 Avenger (pictured below)…. and I think that’s it unless I’m forgetting something. On the Soviet side you have 3 different ZSU variants and 6 different SA-x missile systems and Tunguska and the ZPU-4. That’s 10 different AAA choices for the Soviets and 2 for the US.
Anyways, here are some Avengers I just finished and some soviet stuff in the background that I’m still working on.
