Rubicon Models have previewed some of the work they’ve been doing on characters for World War II to act as commanders of your tank platoons. Kicking off they did some work on Bernard Montgomery who should be a familiar face.
These models will be produced in plastic and will come out alongside their tanks so that you have some neat choices for the tabletop and your dioramas.
While not as famous as Bernard Montgomery we also have this fantastic Soviet character in Mariya Oktyabrskaya who was a Tank Commander.
She was the first female tank commander to be awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union award for her bravery and action in combat. You can see her alongside one of the male Tank Commanders here too.
I think it’s rather cool that we’re seeing the guys at Rubicon looking at creating these characters for your games and looking at lesser known figures like Mariya.
What do you think?
