I got some new toys today!
I’ve been waiting for these since my daughters and wife clubbed together to buy them as a Christmas present in the Blitzkrieg Miniatures pre-Christmas Black Friday sale.
I’ve had Blitzkrieg’s resin 1/56th scale tanks before and been very pleased with them, bit I only buy them in their regular sales. They normally do one specific tank in their Monday sale each week and you get it half price, but it is a little hit and miss as it’s only one model from their whole range, so you might wait a while until one you actually want comes up in the sale.
In the Black Friday sale they put everything up for half price and got totally swarmed with orders. They posted that they had something like 8,000 tanks ordered. I actually ordered two for myself and they came the day before Christmas Eve. My daughter put this order in the following day and they were only just cast last week and arrived today, March 6th!
Anyway, here they are…
You can see my unboxing videos below.
The first is the Sherman M4A1 and Stug III Ausf G which I got today and underneath you can see my older unboxing video which includes the Matilda MkII I got just before Christmas.
