The Boot Campers have begun putting their models together and some of them have made some great progress.

All of the kits are either the plastic ones you’ll be getting at launch or resin pieces made especially for the Boot Camp.

What is your favourite vehicle from the range so far?

The work continues with a lot of the Boot Campers working on their massive amount of tanks and choppers they have. It’s like a proper Soviet factory in here…

Which side would you have picked; Soviets or US?

It’s time for another suggestion from nakchak with Nuclear Assault and Critical Mass. I think this is rather fitting as a portent of the destruction that will be coming tomorrow…

Everyone is hungry and will be tucking into some hot dogs and chips! I would say this is a very appropriate American meal to get stuck into for tomorrow…

…so what kind of grub ‘should’ we have for the Soviets tomorrow?
