‘Honey’ Stuart Tank

I love Stuart tanks. They are fast. They are cheap. They have enough armor to make sure your enemy has to take a big stick in order to deal with them. They are ideal for exploiting holes or flanks,  and can be on top of the enemy before he’s ready for them. I try to…

 

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…

 

OQF 17pdr Anti-Tank Gun

Its time for some late war fun. These are 17lb AT guns. Again they are very rarely used unit. Under v2 AT guns were not a terribly effective choice. As an immobile gun they had a very difficult time getting concealed and re-positioning them was a huge hassle. These were painted quite awhile after my initial foray…

 

Crusader Tank

The Crusader tank has to be one of my favorite British tanks- at least visually. It is iconic for the desert way and just generally look funky. It is a real shame it has never been a viable tank for use in Flames of war. In Mid-War it simply is too under-powered. Everything can penetrate…

 

Valentine Tank

The Valentine tank has to be one of my least used units. It seems in nearly every situation there is another tank thank accomplishes what it does better. Its slow, has a bad gun, and rather mediocre armor. However I haven’t played much early war where it might have a chance to shine. I think I’ve fielded…

 

Churchill Mk IV Tank

  These Churchill tanks have to be one of the most often used tanks I own yet sadly on of the worst jobs I’ve done on armor. The treads are on backwards for example. I had no idea back then, but they fit better that way and I assumed it was the correct way. The camouflage is…

 

Cromwell Tanks

First up I am going to start a little out of order. I promised someone on WWPD better pics of my Cromwells and so I’m going to skip ahead a bit. These Cromwells were one of the very first late war things I bought. I actually got them before I had any rules for them. Festrung Europa…
