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…

 

Italian Misc.

I’ve been working through a large backlog of painting recently. These were partially finished a long time ago and just now finished up. I’ve long since given up on scenic objectives in tournament play. They just get in the way and discourage me from placing troops in a legal spot. The transport I just never…

 

EW Scenario AAR

So as sort of a last hurrah for v2 of Flames of War I planned an early war scenario. The idea was that we would have a two part mission that would allow limited interaction with the other zone. Here’s the rules as I sent them out to my friends. The British are staging on offensive on…

 

Midwar Monsters have arrived

I bought a couple of platoons of my favorite midwar monsters this summer and just now got around to painting them. I haven’t been playing a ton of FOW, and other systems have been taking priority. My British army got a platoon of boarhounds. The boarhound was ordered in large numbers but never delivered. The…

 

Adepticon 2010

Adepticon let Flames of War into the event for the first time this year. Game Korps ran the three tournaments this year. There were two 900 point tournaments, a mid-war one on Friday and a late-war one on Saturday. There was also the two-day 1750pt mid-war tournament running both Friday and Saturday.  In addition to…

 

Italian CR.42 Fiat Falco Biplanes

After many trials and posts on the blog about them, the Fiat Falcos are ready to fly. The decals turned out pretty nice I think. These guys are Reviresco plane kits. I clipped the props off them since they look better that way, as if they were in flight. The decals are blank sheets from…

 

DIY CR.42 Decals

I have been frustrated by the fact that I couldn’t find any appropriate decals for my three 1/144 scale CR.42 Fiat Falcos that I painted up for my Italian force. After poking around a bit I found decal sheets that you can run through your printer and make whatever decals you need. I grabbed some…

 

Bersaglieri Spreadsheet for North Africa

Since I’m up and using the new AS42 organization, I figured I should go ahead and make the excel spreadsheet for it. This sheet is all updated to the latest options. I have to say the German allies were kind of a PITA to create. Please let me know if there are any errors. North_Africa_Italian_Battaglione_Bersaglieri_v0.1…

 

AS 42

Since the new North Africa book came out, I have been excited about the reorganization of the Bersaglieri into the AS42 forces structure. They moved up a step like the Soviets from platoon sized units to company sized units. The new basic combat companies include one Bersaglieri infantry platoon plus the old weapons platoons- A…

 

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…
