15mm Modern Iveco LMV 4WD from.....

......Evil Bear Wargames. 

It's listed on the site as a British Army "Panther".

The Russians have them and this is my attempt until someone produces a 15mm Tigr, these are about the best resin models I have ever bought, crisp and great detail (the wing mirror was broken when it arrived but after much swearing I finally glued it back in place), came in a metal tin with a tea bag.There will probably be no more 15mm models from the company due to poor sales and they will focus on the 28mm business for the time being..............

...........but could be used for several other nationalities.

I have put a figure comparison shot to show scale in case they're your thing.......

Some blurb.........



Iveco LMV (Light Multirole Vehicle) is a 4WD tactical vehicle developed by Iveco, and in service with several countries. After its adoption by the Italian Army under the name VTLM Lince (Lynx)(Veicolo-Tattico-Leggero-Multiruolo), it won the FCLV (Future Command and Liaison Vehicle) competition of the British Army as the Panther and has been adopted by the armies of Belgium, Albania, Norway, Russia and Spain. The Italian Army took vehicles to both Afghanistan and Lebanon. In Afghanistan Lince vehicles have saved passengers' lives in several attacks with IEDs.



Similar but different.........










The figures are 15mm Eureka and Oddzial Osmy.


Belgian I believe......


Need some modern 15mm Russian stars......

  18. Shame the company had to stop producing the smaller ones because they weren't selling too good. They look great. At least they're still around with their larger models. So the company hasn't just gone tits up and vanished.

  19. These look very nice, the casting really does look very crisp which isn't always the case in 15mm.

  23. Those are nice sculpts Fran. I like the crisp detail resin provides but I can't get used to the way the paint lays on the material. You did a great job on these!

    I know I'm late, but I've been in the gardens. Did you guys get some veggies in the ground this year?

  24. Great work on these LMV's Fran! Yes I think it's a Belgian one on that picture. Must be somewhere on an Open Door, because we don't see them often with the gun. Most of the time they are covered!

    Greetings
