It's Competition Time!
Though the COW game is set in 1944 I had already decided to go for a slightly more 'modern' look so that the ships might have a future role supporting amphibious landings in Little Cold Wars games.
Emerging some time later with four lumps of foam vaguely shaped like ship hulls and a few bits of potential superstructure I used PVA to stick the bits together.
For armament I cobbled together some missile tubes and after laboriously carving a pair of turrets had the idea of rummaging in the spares box. This yielded seven suitable(?) turrets and some missiles which were secured with more PVA prior to the fleet being daubed with grey emulsion paint. The newly built models are shown with an iPhone (which I didn't build) for scale.
Which brings me to the question. Can you identify all of the turrets I rescued from the spares box? I'll need the original kit manufacturer(s) and kit names. Feel free to ID the missiles - I've no idea what they are!
The first correct answer will entitle the winner to name two ship models of his (or her) choice from the four in the photo. The second and third placed entries will each get to name one of the remaining ships. Comment moderation is now on until Tuesday.
Ok, so it's a crap prize but come on- what did you expect? Blame Paul at Plastic Warriors for giving me the idea.
