Road to CONflict – Part II

The Achtung Panzer! Blood & Steel starter set arrived, once again thank very much toward Warlord Games Germany for sending us the boxed set, it will receive a review of its own, but that meant I could start building further tanks for our Road to CONflict 2024.

Beside all of the rules and lots and lots of tokens, the Blood & Steel starter set covers German and British tanks, Panther and Shermans to be precisely. As we were going for a cold war gone hot scenario, I would only make use of the Shermans (yes, I know the Firefly was build in Woolwich, Hayes, Radcliffe und Nottingham, and not in one of the 10 American or the one Canadian factories) and keep the Panthers for different purposes.

I build them straight from the sprues, no modifications on those ends. If you want to see how that looks, you can find my reviews on the Sherman V and Sherman Firefly on here, as well as the Panthers, but those are a topic for outside our Road to CONflict project.

And while the Achtung Panzer sets all come with different types of stowage, I used my bit box for some mock-ups, to see what would fit, how much would fit and if I needed to rescale some items from my 3d printing. But mostly to visualize were this was going, as it was still a rough draft.

I build a total of 5 tanks, three regular Shermans, one Sherman Firefly and a Hellcat. All of which got lead added to their hull.

The idea was to have very different and individual tanks, from standard issue M4 Shermans to something almost Tank Girl like. But more on that in the next installment of Road to CONflict.
