A Visit to the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum

This past Saturday your blog hosts, Bwana Bill and El Bandito, drove up to the U.S. Army Ordnance Museum in Aberdeen, Maryland. We received an invitation through the Flames of War Northern Virginia Yahoo Web Group. Bob Smart, who is a regular volunteer at the museum invited everyone in the group to Aberdeen for a special tour. About a dozen of us dedicated gamers braved a bad rain storm and took Bob up on his generous invitation. We got to see things that are not normally open to the public. It was a really great opportunity even though the weather was really bad. If you scroll down you will see photos of three tanks that we saw. We saw a lot more of course, and we will post those pictures later. Hopefully all you Tabletop Gamers out there will find them useful in terms of the colors used and the markings.
