Hi... is their somewhere I could get blueprinty like specs on a Tog II ?  That would be great I've always wanted to make one with radio controlled guts but I might want to do a practice  one for show...   Any help would be appreciated.  Tank you very much.  :D

You could always go archive diving to find the information you're looking for. :)

Hey guys,

Really impressive submissions so far! I will definitely be showcasing the runners up as well as the winners when the contest is over. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing what else you submit.

No time to work on it.  Too much stuff to do...  :(

 

Still trying to get it done in time, but who knows

Would an "egg-scale" model qualify?  I'm thinking a caricature KV-2 with some Warhammer bits added on would be a neat way to do a Ragnarok KV-2.

Of course! That sounds fantastic actually and I look forward to seeing it.

Shouldn't the pictures include a note with our forum handle or something? Anyone could just grab one of the awesome tank models photos from specialized model sites.

Many people have been doing that unprompted, I've been doing some sleuthing on some of the entries too to weed out potential cheating so I feel confident the winners chosen will be honest contestants.

Now...if you'd stated ANY tank of our (your) choice not currently in your garage....THAT would have been interesting.  Worth it.  Limiting it to what's in the store...well....a lot of us 'old timers' already have most or all the @#!! vehicles in the store.  After having to deal with 3 @#!! arty game after game(really...do y'all have to cater to cowards?), gambling for tanks/skins via bought boxes, bushes that don't act like bushes (double bushed, yet STILL spotted...time after time...), first shots that take out the gun, etc, etc....I'm not feeling like doing this out of the goodness of my heart. 

And the boosters?  Nope....not worth the time or effort. 

 

Pass.

WOT is slowly dying, and it's war gaming's own fault. They are changing the game for the worst.

Within a few years there will be no more WOT as things are going. They are trying to color the game to keep it interesting..and that is killing the game slowly.

 

1. Clown cars mess up the game play, and while they call it "the most dynamic vehicle in the game" it ruins the game...it is not a classy tank game anymore.. they turned it into a clown show.

2. Three Arty's WHY ??? One arty is enough..three ruin the game. Rather have one arty in each match than have three in one match and none in the next.

3. Bots in the game?? Don't you have enough players anymore??? If I wanted to play AI, I will play a platform game or go and play Starcraft.

4. If it is your turn to lose, you can play as best you can and you will still lose.. mostly 15-5. It's not rocket science to see how they handicap you when you have to lose ( normally quite a few games in a row) you miss, you don't penetrate, low damage to opponents, easily spotted by opponents, they penetrate you easily and they won't easily miss you when they fire. Seen some crazy shots penetrate, and Ohh yes..you catch fire easier, they always hit your ammo rack or engine is knocked out etc.

 

I want to play a game where I have a 50-50 chance to win/lose...why play when you know you are to lose (and lose silver in most cases)...but NOOOO..They decide you may only have a win rate of 50% average..so..they keep you in check by forcing a loss to keep that 50% ..nice War Gaming.keep at it..keep...losing players..let the clown show carry on..see if you make money out of your Bots when they are the only players left in the game....

I'm almost done as well. :B

By the way, making a tank out of cardboard has been a fun and challenging project. My only problem has been adding the smaller details. Just because cardboard is a hard material to work with.

As much as I love traditional model building I am legitimately excited to see some of the really creative things people have submitted for our go wild category. Really looking forward to seeing your submission Charmz.

I put a lot of time creating the model, hopefully yall like it. Looking forward to other players submissions as well.:B

The next contest, I'll try a traditional model and see how that goes. By then I should have all the tools needed to make something nice.

I tossed this together too but can only submit one. And I cannot change the images of the first so I'll share this little jewel here.

 

A Ming Tank Toons Tiger 1 wearing WOT inspired paint job.

Thank you everyone for your submissions, judging is currently underway. Expect the announcement either later today or early tomorrow morning. There were so many quality ones it will be a tough decision. I will be posting the winners in a separate thread in the contest sub forum.
