A Civil War tank...What????

The other day I was playing around on the computer when I came across this online game called Gettysburg: Armored Warfare. Maybe you guys have already heard of it. Its about  a mad man in the future going back to the civil War to change the outcome bringing new technology to the 1860s Confederacy. Well the government found out and brought new technology to the Union troops, so the Civil War started all over again. Pretty cool I thought...the game is not out yet, supposed to be this year. So I went out and bought a tank that would have been 81 years in the future from the Civil War. Check it out.

  1. Very cool. That's a "what-if" scenario that would never have occurred to me, but I really like it. Great model too!

  2. !!! That would make some of the charges across open ground seem a little bit different.
    Very nice model, why skeletons as a crew?

  7. a What?! What if's are not really my thing but the model looks great. You have a serious talent bringing these models and miniatures to life. Even skeletons now.
