AK Interactive AK130014 The age of the main battle tank
Stock: 1

Historic military book with numerous photos and 220 profiles. The fifteen years after the Second World War saw the technology of tank design advance by leaps and bounds, resulting in the concept of the Main Battle Tank (MBT). This book by MP Robinson and Dick Taylor examines the history of the first Western Main Battle Tanks designed in that period. The discussion of these weapons in the context of the 1960-1975 period includes the evolution of successful and unsuccessful designs. The tank and MBT development programs pursued by the United States and its NATO allies, as well as by neutral Switzerland and Sweden, are documented and described in detail. The emergence of 105mm and larger guns capable of being mounted in tanks in the 30-55 ton range became a catalyst for the disappearance of the old medium and heavy tank classifications- and for even more ambitious developments following the Yom Kippur War of 1973. Each army’s interpretation of these advances and the contrasts in Western MBT design priorities are examined in hundreds of photos and color profiles.

The Northern-African theatre of operations meant new challenges to both parties, mainly because of the weather and the rough environment. The units could not act far from their supply bases. Right from the start a ‘movement war’ was fought, with constant offensives and counterattacks. The forces, the tanks and the softskinned vehicles got often stuck, short of fuel and supplies.

AK learning series 14. AK518 Painting animal figures
Stock: 1

English, 88 pages. Soft cover. In this new installment of the AK Learning series, we are going to see how animals play an important role in a scene, either as an element to help identify scale, to help tell a story or simply as an individual figure. Animal figures can be commercial references or animals made by us for the occasion from a variety of materials. Whether they are common animals or exotic, dangerous, even extinct species, we will always need references before starting the project and, above all, when approaching the painting process. This theme of animals would be enough for many volumes of the series but we have decided to synthesize it in this number 14 and let you apply these techniques to other animals, adapting the colors and studying real references.

AK learning series 15. AK590 Wargames series 1: Starship techniques - Beginner
Stock: 1

English 96 pages. Soft cover. The way wargame painters approach their projects is different from other fields, such as model making. The difference lies in the balance between time and quality, as it is common to have to paint a large number of miniatures. Some figures, such as characters or vehicles, receive special care and work, as they are unique pieces in the armies and many painters strive to make them stand out from the rest of the figures. However, when a traditional wargame painter decides to improve his skills and reach the tabletop profile, he faces several recurring challenges. These include assimilating a lot of techniques, learning to use new products and tools, paying more attention to detail, among others. This path, while rewarding in terms of results, also requires effort and sacrifice. This collection consists of several volumes for wargaming enthusiasts, both for those who want to make the leap to the tabletop profile, as well as those who are looking to further improve their painting and, occasionally, to make showpieces. Each book focuses on a specific theme, from vehicles to characters, and provides the reader with a wide range of knowledge and techniques to help hone their skills.
