The Humberstone Militia Have a Brand New Shiny Thing

Yes indeed the Humberstone Militia of Leicester with the help from the Leicester City Council have been awarded for all their hard work and dedication to the defense of Leicester and the fact that they are the closest Militia force to the Duke of Rutland's Edwardite forces, a lovely and recently decommissioned, now brought back into service, Vickers MkII Medium tank. Still in its ex employers, the British Army, camouflage, this help them to carry on giving the Duke a bloody nose and bringing the fight to him. The only thing left to do is to find a name for this beauty with such names of "Richard III" and "Dicko" being mentioned but the Humberstone Militia commander wants to name it after his wife Marjorie Paget. Well here is the beauty.

This is the first tank, real tank that is, for my VBCW game, yes the arms race has started. To me it is the very VBCW tank, a pop gun, paper thin armour and the size of a house. It even has a full size door on the back of it. I forgot to say the tank is from Reiver Castings and its a heavy beast, being a resin body and metal turret and tracks.
