M4 Sherman Medium Tank by Warlord Games Review


When it comes to World War 2 one of the most famous tanks is the Sherman. Designed by the US and used by the allies the Sherman tank was also the second most prolific with a total of just under 50,000 being built. While it was one of the best tanks when they began to see combat, by D-Day there were much more powerful and armored tanks than the Sherman. The Allies were still able to do damage with Shermans due to the amount of Shermans the allies could utilize in battle compared to the Germans who's tanks were superior but of much limited quantity.

Nano Metalfigs Desert Batman DC2 Miniature Figure


I know there are many people out there that didn't like Batman V Superman : Dawn Of Justice, but I liked it. I think the people who didn't like it can at least agree that the "costume" Batman wore in the desert was a cool looking outfit so it was smart of Nano to release this miniature Batman.

Cheap Old West Toy Train Set


Currently I've been playing a lot of Red Dead Redemption 2 which has put me in a western mood and with the holidays coming I went on the lookout for a toy train that you'd buy cheap to put under your Christmas tree.

If you've been following my 1988 Strat-O-Matic baseball replay you know I've played through the Mets and I'm halfway through the Cubs campaign.

I have become lazy with age and while I will be continuing this playthrough I decided to kick it up a notch and use Strat-O-Matic to do all that work for me instead.
