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…

 

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…

 

British ML 4.2″ Mortars

The 4.2″ mortar was my go-to artillery weapon for a little while. They pack a pretty good punch vs dug-in infantry, have just enough AT to make tanks wary and enough range to cover most of the board without explosing themselves too badly. Best of all they can still throw smoke bombardments and are cheaper than 25pdr…

 

The Brits are coming!

It has been a long time since I did a family photo. These are all my finished British Flames of War models. I’ve tried to arrange them vaguely by time period. The table they are on is 5’x8′ for a sense of scale. I still have a few things to finish up- Mainly another 4…

 

Ragruppamento Artiglieria

I’ve had this box of artillery literally for years. I finally got the motivation to paint it with the new v3 rules and a bit of renewed interest in flames of war. This artillery set was a bit of a labor of love and an art project for me. Normally I wouldn’t spend this much…

 

British 5.5″ BL Battery

I realized this afternoon that this battery had never got posted up on my blog. I finished it awhile ago and the basing was done with what colors I had on hand. Maybe I should have waited for greener static grass and flock, but its an interesting look. The gun performance in game is great…

 

Midwar Bishops

These Bishops had been sitting around on my painting table practically since I started playing Flames of War. I bought them along with a whole bunch of armor from War Web. Most of the Old Glory minis like this come 3 to a pack. Its really a great deal, but unfortunately you need 4 guns…
