The wonderful thing about 3mm scale is that you can, in relatively little space and for relatively little cost, have a "project box" that lets you pursue these nutty little side projects whenever you like. To wit: the Thousand Years' War. What if the fight over Normandy and the Angevin Empire never ended, and stretched on into the 24th Century? Why, you'd have the Thousand Years' War.

Using bits and pieces from Onslaught Miniatures, Oddzial Osmy, Vanguard Miniatures and Microworld Games, I'm putting together a Royal and Lancastrian army to lay siege to Northern France. Queen Elizabeth VII is acting to counter an attempt by the French Crown to assault English lands in Anjou, Aquitaine and Calais. Led by a young and hawkish Duc d'Anjou, the French have withdrawn from the Treaty of Grenoble and reignited the War just when peace finally seemed attainable; to counter the assault, Elizabeth VII has summoned her vassals, namely the Duke of Lancaster, the Earl of Suffolk, and the Duchess of Northumberland. The French, for their part, have just signed a dynastic alliance with the Holy Roman Empire, and will be pairing German Panzer-VIII tanks and Jaeger heavy striders with their own "Cavalier" heavy combat walkers to supplement their force of light and medium tanks, so it won't be any kind of a walk-over.

The beginnings of the Lancastrian force, partly new, partly repurposed from a previous project, gets battle tanks, mechanized power-armored men-at-arms, artillery, superheavy tanks, and at least two "Traction Fortresses:"

And being as how I'm nuts, I'm up-gunning the Traction Fortresses the English are using, to make them shootier than ever before conceived of on this plane of existence:

It's been an incredibly tough year, so a little time off for hobbies around the holiday seems like small compensation, after all.

Some "Conventional" forces for the Lancastrian contingent.

Holy crapola that camo looks great. Colors?

Also I see white turrets are all the rage nowadays ;)

Among the Lancastrians, white turrets are definitely all the rage.

The colors are three-layer Reaper paints - the Terran Khaki, Mahogany/Rust Brown and Olive Drab series. The treads are Shadowed Steel, with a wash of GW Nuln Oil. The white is actually light blue (Snow Shadow) with Ghost White and Pure White highlights.

A little spare time led to a finished Land Dreadnought and a Traction Fortress.

Obviously Mr. Average will need to confirm, but it looks like the small tanks are on standard 25mm slottabases, the mid-size single tanks on 32mm slottabases and the superheavy on a small oval slottabase.

Almost. The conventional forces are 32mm, the Land Dreadnought are in 40mm, and the Traction Fortress is on an oval - although I honestly forget which size.

Ah! That makes more sense of the oval size.
