A Minitanks Jeep with .50 cal - just the ticket for both the Brigade and the Fidelistas. As you can see from the photograph below, the Jeep does look small next to one of the Brigadistas:
But I don't care in the slightest. I have decided to design the BoP project with an inbuilt old school feel to it.
