Howdy Boom Jockeys!

 

The winners from the February From the Forge can be found HERE

 

This month we will change it up to see how creative our players can be. 

Your chance to design your favorite Nation's OP Fantasy tank is upon us. You go back in history knowing what you know now and get to design a tank to turn the tide of battle. 

Any medium will still be accepted, yes even pasta if that is what you work in. 

 

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 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.

 

The prizes for March are: 

1st Premium Tier VIII Bourrasque version of the Bat-Chat 

     3x 1hr 50% credits booster
     3x 1hr 100% xp booster
     3x 1hr 100% crew xp booster
     3 days premium
2nd Tier 6 of our Choice
     3x 1hr 50% credits booster
     3x 1hr 100% xp booster
     3x 1hr 100% crew xp booster
     3 days premium 
Honorable mention
     3x 1hr 50% credits booster
     3x 1hr 100% xp booster
     3x 1hr 100% crew xp booster
     3 days premium 

Good luck to everyone that participates. 

 

Good luck to everyone!

Please be sure to email this to From_the_Forge@wargaming.net. 

Also, keep in mind this month is to design your own OP fantasy tank.

Whatever medium you work in via paint, pottery, plastic model, dried pasta, or hedge trimming. Just send a picture of your OP fantasy tank to From_The_Forge@wargaming.net. 

 

It will be voted upon and prizes go out to the top three as mentioned above. ;).

(Now out of the kiln) Essentially it's a Maus if it had been captured by the USSR and used on the eastern front. The barrel broke off while painting it so I had to fire a separate piece that will be attached with epoxy later on. We all know the Maus is pretty op as it is. Sadly the barrel broke off so the pictures are just the tank with a base coat of grey and the second is it fully painted, but this is before I had fixed the lettering (they were supposed to be И and I put N), but since the barrel broke off and had to be remade these are the pictures I've got.

I've also made a second piece that probably doesn't fit the criteria as it's more or less a ship, but I'll share that here as well (it's not painted yet) so I probably won't post that until Tuesday (it's a bit large and fragile). Update: It developed a few cracks while drying where the handle and spout is (as its supposed to be a function teapot) but those can be fixed up with epoxy easily later. Not sure if i'll post it as its still not colored and may not ever be colored. Just got word that the campus is shutting down and since none of my pieces are glazed, I dont think any will be fully finished before we get kicked out of the dorms (real sad hours).

I was planning on making my version of the P1000 Ratte, albeit larger, but since the top prize is a the Burger, I think I'll pass for now as I already got it thru the challenge. :) 
Hoping the April Forge would follow the same as March by having a theme.

Hi all, here's what I submitted to the from_the_forge email.

 

Spoiler

 

A "historical" blurb about it

 

In 1946, the only surviving Maus was sent to USSR for research and testing. The turret was to be replaced with a modified Conqueror turret which would fit three 183mm guns capable of firing HESH. A third set of tracks were added when incorporating a hydropneumatic suspension. Due to the success of wheeled vehicles on the Frontline, a total of 6 wheels were added to each side, which would allow the vehicle to travel at speeds up to 100 km/h and the wheels would effectively block most shots, while the aim-assist provided exceptional gun handling on the move. However, due to the prevalence of premium ammunition, the importance of armor had been reduced and the project was scrapped. Existed only in blueprints.

I may have sent this in too late, but here is my idea of an OP tank.

 

The UDES 103/16-II.
 A lengthened Stridsvagn 103 hull powered by a larger turbine engine, with extra armour around the gun, and spaced armour covering most of the tracks. Fitted with a UDES 15/16 turret that has been modified to accommodate a second 12 cm cannon. With the 10.5 cm hull cannon aimed at its opponent, this tank is capable of 16 RPM, dealing approximately 6,300 DPM! And thanks to the double shot capability of the modified turret it can deliver a 1,270 alpha damage burst with all three cannons!

Nobody from this thread got featured in the entries list. Well, that's disappointing.
