Would something without tacks (e.g. that shown below) count?

Why not? :D

If you take armoured warfare back far enough, it's some rich bugger sitting on a horse, both of them covered in plate-armour & chain-mail, carrying a rather nasty assortment of death-dealing devices.

Official Verdict: I'll allow it! 

The tracks/treads are not a mandatory element, in my opinion.  Wheels, skis, feet, hooves, all qualify as long as there is armor/armour involved - so a mounted knight or a Mobile Infantry Trooper would be accepted as well as horse drawn war wagons or chariots.

We've reached the half-way point in the Treadhead/Armour Group Build

So many great entries/projects started/in progress/completed.  Bravo Zulu to all!

There's still plenty of time to start a project of your own, or a 2nd...3rd...etc...

And I still can't find my Matilda!  Though there is a now 1/35 Tamiya one at the only hobby store in the territory, I wonder if I would get away with smuggling it home.

Well I give up on this one too, my step daughters boyfriend has just moved in so now we have four adults, three children, three dogs, three cats and two parrots in one four bedroom, single living area suburban house.  I thought it was bad enough trying to find space for the hobby before, now there is no hope, especially as we live in the tropics and its too hot to set up outside or in the garage (which is full of moving boxes and things we don't have space for in the house). 

Its a cyclone zone too so no affordable option to build a granny flat or extension, not that the yard is big enough anyway, I really really really want my old five bedroom / four plus an air-conditioned studio, two living area (each about 50% bigger than our current single living area) house back.  We still own it, its being rented out to the step daughters ex, and its in the same city that has a very nice $100-120k job waiting for me (i.e. where I used to work) but it doesn't fit my wifes career so we will never live there again.  Instead, as I have said, "if not Adelaide then Melbourne is the next best option because its affordable and I have a lot of family and friends there, as well as employment opportunities", we will probably move to Sydney, NZ or F...ing Vietnam, because it better suit my wifes career.

At least I get to see the excellent work you guys produce and reminisce about when I had time, space and money for my hobby (well hobbies, I used to do target shooting, scuba dive and ride too).

Sorry to hear that, Volkodav.  I can commiserate with you; I'm splitting time between my basement "apartment" outside DC for work and the family still in North Carolina.  We're waiting for the girls to finish out the school year before (hopefully) selling our house and relocating to the northern Virginia area where the youngest will start high school. The older two will both be in college at that point (freshman and junior years).

I've packed a couple kits and supplies to work on at the work domicile, but very little progress is being made.  I need to change that, and get back to building since I have some time on my hands right now.

Thank you so much.  I really need it.
Forget about his bow and arrows- why wait until that sparrow has done his deed when I can just bury him right now 'cause I'm sick and tired of hearing why he wants to have his way with the cock robin!?
