Howdy Boom Jockies!

 

The Winners for January From the Forge Contest can be found HERE

 

For the new folk: 

Players send in some creations, they get voted on, and prizes go out. Creations we are looking for is anything World of Tanks themed created by our players. Some examples include pasta portrait of a Progetto Tank, Kit bashing a World of Tanks model to use in a popular table top game, or something a little more involved like making a pedal power tank car that shoots fireworks. (Please make that last one come true.) 

We will be doing some searches through our creative Forum Threads and gathering  entries for the first three weeks of every month. What I mean by "gather" is finding a bomb-diggity piece of art and requesting the creator if they would like to enter it into the contest. The last week will be put up to a community wide vote for Mystery Prize Packages including bonds, boosters, tanks, gold, and credits! 

 

While the searches are happening by our team it's not the only way to get your creation discovered. Players can email their machinations to us at From_The_Forge@Wargaming.net.

 

HEADS UP!

This Month I would like to Emphasize the Valentine's Day theme such as Candy, Chocolate, or Flowers. Lemme see how creative you can get! 

 

The prizes for February are as follows: 

1st Premium Tier VIII Of your Choice. *No reward Tanks or Tanks that will get me in troubles*  
     3x 1hr 50% credits booster

Well, here's an old project, and I do mean old. I built this up in the 1970s. It's a 1/16 scale Tamiya 105 M4 Sherman. It's one of their first RC tanks and yes it still runs. I am having problems with some of the road wheels but then it is 40 years old. I tell people that it's missing all the stuff on the front because of some HE shells. And for those of you with sharp eyes, those games on the shelf in the back of the picture are old Avalon Hill war games from the 70s.

 

As a small point, the tracks that Tamiya sells with the new version of this kit are much easier. In those days the tracks came as individual parts. There are 7 parts for each set of pads. It took hours to put that track together and then I had to stake all the pins so that the links would not fall apart. Now the new tracks come as an assembly.

Missing/Hidden Rule: Entries must be physically made.

That's what I noticed from the December & January Winners. All physically made. Haven't seen any digital entries if there were even any, & even if there was, it wouldn't make the cut since its not physical.

(the tank/car was in the 100 Years of Tanks event)

I didn't see Valentine's Day themed at first, so I changed it:
World of Tanks Lanchester Armoured Car Valentine's Day

Here is my 1/35 scale Italeri M-24 Chaffee model, which depicts the vehicle in the US 1st Armored Division in Italy, 1945. I bought the kit in the Boxing Day sale. It took me about 6 weeks to finish. The accessories are from Italeri and Tamiya; a couple of them are aftermarket resin products. The kit doesn’t come with tank crew (did I check the “purchase without crew” box when I bought it?). I recruited the commander from an old Tamiya tank kit (I forget which one, probable one the their M4 Sherman kits) with some conversions (a.k.a. retraining in WoT) for fitting in the tank.

 

Happy Gaming! Happy Modelling!

They do not have to be physically made. 

 

They do need to be Emailed to From_the_Forge@wargaming.net to enter though

 so does this mean Chinese New year edition gold type 59 is not a possible choice?

I'm always impress to see WARGAIMING giving price to players with ZERO game played....  Player_3239572097

 

What a waste of effort for those who play the game

Am I wrong for thinking this?

I am a little confused with the rankings. Am I to assume that my tank that was made using old military weapons used in the war that were broken down into smaller pieces then shaped and welded together with the addition of sheet metal. After which underwent grinding, sanding and painting is on the same level as a "snow" tank? I would have thought WG would have appreciated the authenticity of keeping the memory of war alive. Being that it was such a huge part of Russia's history. I mean the barrel of the gun is a real gun barrel. I do not understand how this is equivalent to some snow with a stick as a barrel (no offense). It took months to find gun parts, planning as well as labour to create an authentic tank. I am rather disappointed.

To anyone interested in more images of the tank click the link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gUdlo5nqiyL5vONFVAG1DaDTvmiCXU1WDfTfMKPtTOk/edit?usp=sharing

 

I do however, appreciate being mentioned and found the creativity of the WG community quite refreshing. 


PS. I will remain forever proud of this creation regardless of WG's views on it being equivalent to a "snow" tank with a stick barrel (no offense).
