These models are from the Takara micro-tank range. They're a 1/144th scale Russian T95s, more properly called Object 195, because it never reached production status, as it was cancelled in 2010 due to budget problems.
Given that Russian tanks have a look to them, my idea was to use this model as the basis for a near future Third World tank, if only because it's an easy way of plonking something down on the table for a game.
Of course saying that means I'll probably want to customize these a bit, to jazz them up and make them look more futuristic. Haven't decided what this will entail yet, but you know me, when I do I will post pictures.

So, I have a choice. Give up or self-publish.
The answer is, never give up, never surrender.
This picture is by the talented artist Elartwyne Estole whose work can be seen here. I asked him to do a cover, and he came up with this sketch, which I think is awesome. The current plan is to have Bad Dog out by January the first 2018.
We shall see how the plan survives contact with reality in due course.
