Should this headline read "World of Re-enactors" or "World of Pin-Up models?"

Wargaming.net, makers of World of Tanks and the other World of _______ games, are serious about WWII - like totally super-cereal serious.  I'm sure if you told them that WWII-themed games were going out of style, they'd just stick their fingers in their ears and yell "ICAN'THEARYOU," "ICAN'THEARYOU!" until you got bored and left.  Today they have announced what is essentially a doubling-down on that super-cereal seriousness.  Wargaming.net has partnered with the totally real and not made up magazine called World War II Re-enactors Magazine (here's proof - see, it's totally real).  This partnership facilitates their sponsorship of WWII Re-enactors Magazine's annual Pin-Up contest, with the winner being WWII Re-enactors Magazine's Pin-Up model of the year who will grace the cover of the magazine's December/January issue.

World of Tanks is the first and only team-based massively multiplayer online action game dedicated to World War II armored warfare. Throw yourself into epic tank battles with other tank commanders worldwide. A flexible system of authentic vehicle upgrades and development allows you to try any of the vehicles and weapons in the game. Whether you prefer to exhaust your foes with fast and maneuverable light tanks, make deep breaches in enemy lines with all-purpose medium tanks, use the force of giant tanks to eliminate opposing armored forces, or become a heavy sniper with long-range howitzers.

The judging panel consists of Fleur de Guerre, Kitten Von Mew and Evalina de Lis, as well as last year's winner Stefanie Valentine, who are experienced in the field of vintage fashion, entertainment, and/or the portrayal of classic pin-up.

Last year's winner Stefanie Valentine commented, “I can honestly say that being last year's winner and having the opportunity has really given me a boost. It made me realise that yes, there are people out there who appreciate and love the way that I dress, and to be confident about who I am.”
