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…

 

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…

 

Universal Carrier (UC)

Ahh The venerable universal carrier. It was the jeep of the British forces and adapted to a multitude of role throughout the war. It could be found as a scout, observation post, mortar carrier, transport, machine  gun carrier, flamer, and more. I love the UC. Its quirky and unique British unlike so much of the…

 

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…

 

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…

 

Dirty Dirty Staghounds

One of my buddies birthday wasn’t long ago and he doesn’t paint. I decided I would offer to paint something for him. He wanted a set of Staghounds from the XII Manitoba Dragoons. These are all decaled up correctly as near as I can tell. The set features a few turret swap options. First is…

 

Shermans and more Shermans

  The Sherman tank and its variants have to be one of the most common tanks in WWII. There seem to be a million variations depending on country of service. I got a platoon of Sherman III tanks with my motor company boxed set and a few more Sherman II and Firefly VC that I…
