As some may know, my living room flooded (yet again). I'm still packing up stuff from my miniature corner to clear the last of the floor so we can have someone come in to replace the carpet. Found an old PC game from WIN95 days. I didn't recognize it and found this when I opened it.

I think this was a mix of a small ebay find and an old GHQ order from who knows how many years ago. I've been in my present place almost 17 years. Now to paint them and add them to the army.

Nice! It must be your lucky day! I just find Cheerios and broken crayons!

Yeah, I couldn't believe it when I found it as I thought I'd painted almost everything except my last GHQ order.

EDIT: Just finished IDing the figures. The green T-54s, PT-76s, BRDMs, and ZSUs are all GHQ. I'm pretty sure the T-72s, T-62s, BRDM2s, and BMPs are from another source. It took me forever to ID the PT-76s. I kept trying to call them MT-LBs in my head despite knowing that was wrong.

That is - in the mico armor world - tantamount to a barn find! Pretty cool, you must've enjoyed that little xmas in March!

Those with the largest diameter turret wells are not GHQ. Always nice to get such a surprise!

Indeed, Panzer. Although I'm now wondering how old my GHQ sculpts are given that, looking them up in the catalog, they've clearly upped the detail from these models.

You can hide most of that with a good camo scheme. An advantage of the small .
scale.

I wonder if the Soviets ever realized they were missing that much armor?

Sorry to hear about the flooding!

Oh wow, those are old. Very Happy

When it stops raining later this next week, I'll be priming more tanks. I'll get the last of these and most of the rest of my Black Friday purchase from last year primed.

Wow, that must be pretty old. I’ve never seen that GHQ packaging before. Kind of assumed the yellow packaging was the oldest they had.

GHQ fabrique au Canada!





Rafm Co in Ontario under license I believe. No idea how old they are.
The Huey's and Cobras are very nice just lacking the newer brass rotors.

Some people are buying up toilet paper but there are much better deals out there at the moment Laughing
