This is how I'd like to wake up...

Some of us are a little tired this morning after going to a friends wedding last night and we need wake up fast... so taking a leisurely flight like this would do the trick!

Assembling the Bo-105 PAH Helicopter
Leopard Launch Week
Small, nimble and deadly, Aaron shows use how to assemble the plastic BO-105 PAH Anti-tank helicopter. (I mean the helicopter is small, nimble and deadly - not Aaron; he's nimble, but of average size, and happily his deadliness has never been put to the test.)

Every small town has a place to get a Burger Queen, a Pizza Hut or maybe some Louisville Fried Chicken. Now your town can have one too.

So what's everyone up to?
Leopard Launch Week
Wayne is still airbrushing on his camo, Sean and Andrew are taking a break to play a game of TANKS (more photos of this to follow), Casey's pile of finished Soviet infantry keeps growing (I'm a little envious), James is still working on the 2nd part of the Battle Report, and finally Aaron's ducked out to use our usual airbrushing booth to work on the Hind objective... and I'm hiding behind the lens of the camera!

The Luchs Armoured Car
Leopard Launch Week
If Top Gear made a TV series about tanks and armoured cars it might look a little like this. The commentary is in German but the short version is "it goes really fast, it turns really well, with two drivers it can reverse as fast as it can go forwards, it can climb over things, swim through water, and be generally awesome!"

Lonnie's Panzergrenadier Kompanie
Leopard Launch Week Lonnie at Origins 2016 Lonnie's Panzergrenadier Kompanie

Lonnie, from the US office, shares some thoughts about why he picked a Panzergrenadier Kompanie to build.

Marders are an impressive looking beast so I cannot fault his logic for wanting to field lots of them.

Battlefield in a Box European Farm House
Leopard Launch Week
Most commanders like the idea of open countryside where their tanks can advance at speed, crushing their enemies in front of them. That's where you are most likely to come across a small hamlet or a farm like this one.

British Sherman Tanks in the middle of Leopard?
Leopard Launch Week
Sean and Andrew took a break earlier this afternoon to play a quick game of TANKS. Andrew's Jagdpanther took out a Sherman with a single shot in turn 1. In response Sean managed to start a fire inside a StuG that ended up burning out the vehicle over the next 3 turns. The Jagdpanther was crowned the king of the battlefield at the end of a hard fought match once it dispatched Sean's Comet.

Inside a Leopard 2 Loaders Position
Leopard Launch Week
This is really just an excuse to show a Leopard 2 speeding around and looking awesome - but you also get to see how the loader feeds the massive 120mm gun. Add in a little Rammstein background music and you have a great video that is worth watching. If your German is as bad as mine you can try turning on Google's translation function (hit the settings wheel in the bottom right of the video) but it gets a little confused by the terminology.
