Matilda II Infantry Tank

The Matilda has been a bit of a mixed bag for me in Flames of War. In mid-war It just isn’t that great of a tank. Its slow, it has a weak gun, and its armor is easily penetrated by many tanks and anti-tank guns. In early-war the Matilda II is a monster. It is…

 

‘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…

 

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…

 

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…

 

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…

 

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…

 

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…

 

Visigoth Heavy Tank

Yet another of my ebay finds. The Visigoth is one pretty mean looking tank once you get it painted. This one came out fantastic I think. Bright anime type colors. I’ve had a problem painting bright in the past without it looking garish. This guy has been sitting around forever half painted as I never…
