Combat Wombat Centurion Medium GEV Tanks Finished


Hi, folks. I recently got a platoon of Combat Wombat Miniatures Centurion Medium GEV Tanks. These are beautiful models, with outstanding detail. They even came with over a dozen pieces of stowage to attach to the hulls, hatch covers, and 6 rare earth magnets. I decided to mount them on some home-made flying stands made from pieces of Clix bases and nails (I was out out of bailing wire and spit) :). I mounted them at different heights and angles. I took pics of them with some Rebel Miniatures Earth Force Marines. I'll also use them with the new Rebel Minis Earth Force Armored Troops Here's some pics:





Pic below shows the Tanks deployed on my 2x2 foot Zuzzy mat with some 15mm

I've got some more Combat Wombat vehicles coming: a heavy Grav tank, 3 LAV GEV APCs and one of the brand new Bullfrog Lander. I had an idea for making a forward camp with some fo the Combat Wombat Defensive Turrets, extra pods from the Lander, and a command bunker, maybe with a wall suurounding the camp, made from Hirst Arts sci fi bricks.

Anyway, thanks for looking.

Good stuff, keep it coming.

I've just received a unit of these tanks as well, so I was keen to see what you had done with yours. I've mounted mine on GW flight stands with cut-down shanks. The stowage is really cool - I've used some of it on my CMG ARC Fleet Grav tanks as well.

That table looks great my man.
Good stuff all over it!

Thanks, folks. I appreciate the encouragement.
@Kobold: That's a good idea to use the cut-down GW flight stands. It's cool that Scotty provides so much stowage. I'll use the left-overs for other vehicles, too. I love seeing what other have done, do you have any pics available of CW or CMG Tanks?

I was hoping to do a "Tanksgiving Day" post on my Modeling Log but extreme busy-ness and a tangi (extended funeral) this weekend have rather put a spoke in that wheel. Looks like when I do post pics, they'll just be WIPs.

Have just received some GZG High Tech Grav Tanks (a battle force weighs nearly 2 kilos!) which are going to be my Imperial force, and so this confirms the CMG and CW units as the Outrim OPFOR.

Hey Luckyjoe,

Hope you and your family had a good Christmas. Have finally updated my modelling log with the WIPs I promised. Hopefully all the pictures have loaded as I was having trouble with a couple.

Combat Wombat, Critical Mass Games and GZG goodness :)

Hi, Kobold. Thaanks very much for the link to your latest work. Very nice, and I was glad to see how those various minis size up against each other. Is there a way to leave comments directly at your site?
