Gear Krieg goes 28mm
A.D. Publishing and Company B have announced a joint venture to release a range of 1:56 scle Gear Krieg vehicles called Gears and Guts.
From their announcement:
Gears and Guts is a joined venture of Brent Dietrich of Company B and John Cunningham. They have acquired a license from DP9 to produce 1/56 models of the classic 15mm Gear Krieg models by DP9.
Very much in the way I have the license to produce World at War books based on the original Gear Krieg books.
Brent and John approached me a couple of months ago for additional input on the project. Very soon after that we received even more in depth support by John Bell (aka Jakar Nilson) the guy behind the great GK “Alfies Tenners” comics.
Soon ideas were flying around via the interweb and the first walkers were taken shape. We agreed that I would paint the walkers.
The General Early walkers shown are a pre-production prototypes with some weapons still missing. The Artizan Greatcoat troopers (painted by Tom Weiss) are shown for scale comparison. The final models will have even more details and a full complimenting set of decals included. Jakar is even working on vehicle dashboard layouts!
The above picture shows how well the spirit of the 15mm models is captured! Release dates and future plans are noted on Brents website under the Gears and Guts subsection.
