Default Versions of Ogre Miniatures

The 'tread thread' seems to have vanished, so I'll try a new one.

My crew and I continued work on Steve's Martian Metals Mk 5

and finished. Here is the martian Mk 5 compared to the Ral Partha/ late SJG/ Graycat Mk5. Badger for scale.

Here are the first and latest nose to nose for comparison.

I think there are (at least) 4 versions of the Mk 5:

Martian Metals 1- one piece main body, stupidly thin secondaries
Martian Metals 2- two piece main hull, separate missile launchers
SJG 1 done by Ab Mobaser. Very clean, mechanical
Ral Partha, rework of Ab Mobasher model by Dave Summers

The late SJG version differs from the RP version only in the copyright notice. The first SJG version is very different, the treads are etched, with very little depth. Has anyone got a photo of one of these to post?

Okay, it's a very big badger

Gosh the old one is really quite a bit bigger than the later version. Has real character too, which I think is something to do with the "nose" of the tank.
One cannot always win but one cannot always lose either.

The Martian Metals version is definitely more menacing... nice work Richard!
