Again I had a large amount of German 15mm Armoured vehicles already which I used for TANKS and What a Tanker so with a few more purchases (always need to buy more shineys eh?) I assembled a large force and went to work painting them.
As stated in my post for the British - O Group works along the lines of Battalion Command and uses the Company (made up of Platoons), with Company Commanders as the main combat element. Added to this are Battalion and Company support, i.e attached Tank Platoons, Anti Tank Guns, HMG sections etc.

I hope everybody had the best Christmas they could in these unusual times and managed to get a good pile of new shineys.
I don’t think I did too bad this year.

I quickly went to the Bot War Facebook page and group (check them out) and was amazed at some of the outstanding work people have already posted.
Okay so what is Bot War - It's a roughly 8mm scale skirmish game pitting (Transformer) Bots and vehicles from a number of various factions against each other
You don't need many models as in most games you will probably only have about 5-10 models depending on faction and (unless you and your opponent decide otherwise) 80 points to build your force.
Each Bot/Unit etc in your force gains you 'energy cubes' and the system itself starts with a strategy phase where you assign these ‘energy cubes’ across your force, these then act as activation points to allow your Bot to move, make a ranged attack, use it's special ability etc.. added to this is that each bot has a strategy rating - this is sort of the initiative value but with Bot War the higher the rating the later in the game that model with activate. Smaller weaker Bots have a low strategy rating and go first whilst the big boy's tend to go last.
You can get the models from Firestorm Games in the UK - but they seem to sell out really quickly, or order direct from Traders Galaxy in Australia, Just be aware of the dreaded customs on large orders and the possibility that it might take up to 3 weeks to receive you new shiny's
