Ogre update and pics

No, I haven't given up gaming (although it's been awhile since I've rolled any dice). As proof, here are some non-canon vehicles I'm working on for my next Monopolis scenario, which I plan on running at Millennium Con this November.
Above is a mobile jamscreen, with a PanEuropean heavy tank for scale. The model is actually a Micro Machines toy that will work nicely as an ECM unit in Ogre. I'm leaving the paint job (except for some detailing) so it can go with either side in my games.
I also got my armored boats looking how I want them. I sprayed them brown and then drybrushed with tan and light gray. I chose this color scheme so I could use them with my North American Combine (green) or PanEuro (gray) forces.
These submarines also look decent on the tabletop. Like my other nonstandard units, these are painted so they can go with either side. In this case, it's a flat black primer with a light gray drybrush.
Here's a size comparison for the aquatic units. For reference, the hexes in this photo are four inches across. So what's everyone else working on?

Nice paint jobs on the minis; especially the subs.

And good to see a new post. Glad to see the SGD back in action.

Once upon a time, I scratch-built an Ogre Mk V - it was about 7" long, from memory. I also sculpted and cast up a load of tanks, GEVs and howitzers; these were fairly crude, but nothing else was available at the time. They've long since gone, but I still hanker after this stuff. I'm living it vicariously through watching your progress :-) .

Looking good. As for me and mine, not much done either.
