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…

 

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…

 

Back Catalog Minis

I’m going to spend a few weeks posting my back catalog of miniatures. This is stuff that goes all the way back to the very first British motor company box that I bought at Gencon very shortly after v2 of the rules was released. Not all of it is painted by me. I’ve commissioned a few things and…

 

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…

 

Armored Car Invasion

Confession. I didn’t just paint all these armored cars from scratch. I did a real basic paint job on about half of them shortly after starting to play Flames of War. I won most of them at auction and there they sat unloved, unused. With the improvement of wheeled vehicles in v3 I think I’m…

 

Italian 20/65 SP AA

I have a tournament this weekend based in Sicily. Of course we have to use only units available in Sicily. Unfortunately for my Italians that means that quite a few of my units simply aren’t there. The Lancia da 90/53 Gone. The M14/41 Gone. Only L6 and R35 tanks were available there. No demolishers either.…

 

Krylon Camouflage Paint

So in my never ending quest to speeding painting bloody infantry I have been told about Krylon Camouflage Paint. It comes in 4 colors. Khaki which is apparently a close match for British in the desert, Brown which is a couple shades darker than English Uniform, Black which is…. well black, and Olive which can…
