Re: New sets of Ultima Ratio

The tanks/vehicles are Fabbri Editori* (Ixo) and they normally sell for about £9 each so £2 is good. I bought a couple of Tigr vehicles (looks like a cross between a Humvee and a Humber Pig). The range seems to be very large with lots of variants and the packs would suggest they were originally going to Russia and other countries but not Western Europe or the USA. My local BW shop seems to have lots and lots of IS-2s probably more than they built in real life and these would of course go with the late WWII Ultima Ratio set. The UR sprues look a bit like Strelets tree trunks- is there a connection I wonder?


* Probably intended for a part work but I don't know if it was released or maybe it was sold only in selected outlets in Uzbekistan or Siberia.

Re: New sets of Ultima Ratio

I took the opportunity to invest in enough of the Fabbri vehicles to give me a selection of modern vehicles for a skirmish situation in the post Warpac republic of Ruritania not sure how post Warpac will get hold of Tigrs but 'the wonderful thing about tigrs, is tigrs are wonderful things....' (sorry). I bought a couple of them because our local Moderns expert says they are the using Tigr as the replacement for BRDM 2.

I also picked up some T28s and T35 (because apart from the fact that they're only £2) they're going to get steampunked.
