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…

 

M3 Grant Tank

The Grant tank is a bit of an odd tank, both in real life and in Flames of War. It was built as a stop gap measure while the Sherman was finalizing design. It has a 75mm sponson mounted gun and a 37mm turret mounted gun. It is one of the very few tanks in…

 

M10 ‘Wolverine’ Tank Destroyers

The M10 tank destroyer was the answer to my disappointment in the OQF 17pdr. I bought these for use in Mid-war, but they’re painted green since they would have mainly seen use in Tunisia and Italy. The M10 and M10c are quite a potent force in Mid War, being able to knock out just about…

 

Tank Destroyer Company WIP Part 4

I’ve been working on my M18 Hellcats in bits and pieces. Painting road wheels and tracks is annoying and took longer than I thought it would. I should have painted tracks off the tank. Anyhow, that is just about over now and I’m working on setting the look for the hulls. I did a one…

 

Tank Destroyer Company WIP Part 3

Just a little work on defining the look of the tank destroyer company. I think I might stick with manual highlighting and shading rather than washes. Or a very controlled wash at best. I really like the yellow-green highlighting on the turrets I worked up. I’m unsure about the highlighting on the canvas of the…

 

Tank Destroyer Company WIP Part 2

I got a little bit more done on my Tank Destroyer Company. The 2nd platoon of M18’s, security section, and the Company HQ have been assembled. I saved a little stowage from the M18 platoons and used it on the HQ’s M20 armored cars to make them stand out just a little more. So this…

 

Tank Destroyer Company WIP

I finally bought into Americans. The idea of a tank destroyer company has interested me for awhile and the new book, Blood Guts and Glory, finally made it a reality. Plus I could finally use the Hellcat. Speed and firepower? Yes please. I ordered 3 platoons of M18 Hellcats and a HQ as the core…

 

North Africa Review

The replacement for Afrika, North Africa, came out recently. It has been a long time since Battlefront covered anything on mid-war, my favorite period. I was extremely excited for this book and hoped to get a pre-release copy at GenCon. No luck there, so I went the regular retail route. I have had a little…
