Vauban Sky Fortress

I have to say this is one of the most ridiculous models I have ever painted. Its huge for the scale- almost softball sized. Its a flying double wide aircraft carrier for god’s sake! There is an insane amount of detail to pick out as well. Unfortunately most of that is on the bottom where is doesn’t…

 

Kingdom of Britain Dreadnought

This is another piece I’ve been working on for a friend. It is a little more showy than the starter box stuff, but a dreadnought is a center piece of a fleet. Same basic scheme, just more attention paid to the details. I’m pretty happy with how the glowing effect from the generators came off.    …

 

Matilda II Infantry Tank

The Matilda has been a bit of a mixed bag for me in Flames of War. In mid-war It just isn’t that great of a tank. Its slow, it has a weak gun, and its armor is easily penetrated by many tanks and anti-tank guns. In early-war the Matilda II is a monster. It is…

 

Bofors 40mm Anti-Aircraft Gun

The Bofors is a great AA gun, except for its one major flaw- Its not mobile. It seems everyone else gets good mobile AA in Mid-War, but the Brits are stuck with these in most lists. It has a good range, anti-tank rating, rate of fire, and firepower. Its even pretty cheap. However not being…

 

Dropzone Commander PHR WIP

  I finally got my Dropzone Commander minis in after nearly a month of waiting. First thing I did was pop them out and inspect them for air bubbles like the pictures I’ve seen online. My minis were better than most of those, but there are numerous small bubbles. I only had one complete miscast-…

 

M7 Priest Artillery

The priest is another one of those units that never really found a permanent home in my army lists. It hits reasonably hard, doubles as a tank destroyer in Mid-war, and still can bombard while pinned. However the points cost for a battery of 8 is pretty rough in Mid-War. I haven’t played them a…

 

OQF 6pdr Portee

The 6lb portee is a bit of a tricky animal. They have great punching power for Mid-War but are pretty much the definition of a glass cannon. In ambush they’re great with their high rate of fire. They can get around the battlefield quickly to support the flank that needs help. However they also drop…

 

British ML 3″ mortars

I’ve had these 3″ mortars for ages and always hoped to get more use out of them. Under 2v they were sort of underwhelming. Short bombardment range, no ability the defend themselves at short range, and little to no ability to hurt armor. Heck, if I could combat attach out the platoon to infantry they…

 

OQF 25pdr Artillery

The OQF 25pdr Artillery is the backbone of British infantry forces. Nearly every formation I run is backed by 8 of these artillery pieces. You can take them in groups of 2, 4, or 8 though the special rules make the 8 gun battery the best choice much of the time. Artillery has a hard…

 

Dorchester AEC ACV

The Dorchester ACV is a really odd duck mini. I got it as a birthday gift long ago, but I’ve never had it on the table. I don’t think I’ve ever been able to find any rules to use it in Flames of War. I assumed it was old stock from v1, but apparently they…
