28mm British Tanks – Warfare 2015

Here are some more photographs from the Warfare 2015 Show in Reading. These images are from a 28mm Demonstration Game set in the latter part of the second world war.

Overall the Cromwell was a welcome addition to the British, but as with many allied tanks, they were under armoured and under-gunned when faced with the German tanks of the same time period. Where the allies won out was in sheer numbers and probably more importantly logistics.

Slow and heavy, but with much better armour the Churchill was a different tank to the faster Cromwell. Probably remembered more for the variants and “funnies” that used the tank as a base vehicle.

Okay not a tank, but an M5 Half Track disembarking infantry to support the tanks in the bocage.

Overall a great looking game and some nice models.

The clunking behemoths of steel slowly trundled through the mud and despair of no-man’s land followed by apprehensive and scared men who had seen years of fighting and death.

These models were part of a 54mm World War One demonstration game at Warfare 2015 in Reading. Visually impressive, the table also had an extensive trench system terrain.
