    Gaddis Gaming is doing a Kickstarter for this ball tank I know it’s historical but it comes with a lot of sci-fi options so  does that mean that it fits in with weird war? 20200502_052826IMG_20200503_104322_443IMG_20200502_120919

    I remember reading about these.  Very interesting footnote in history.

     

    What scale are these models?

    Oh, never mind, I just saw the Tag that points out 1/56 scale, 28mm

    I think the original ball tank idea is from WW1, so this could fit a pulp/alternate history/weird war/steampunk/sci-fi game, whatever you want really, it’s your game.

    Yeah, the Kugelpanzer, the Russians have a captured one, don’t think there were many more built.

    The original idea was the Treffaswagen in 1917, not really a “ball tank”, more a tricycle with two massive front wheels but similar theory.
