flames of war game at the weekend

Well had the game today,Soviets Vs German,played 3000pts aside with lots of terrain so it was chaos,bogged down tests,very difficult terrain tests.Soviet were given a phyric victory.Best troops of the day? Soviets defiantly infantry,killed a German infantry platoon and two panzerIII's.For the Germans,stug platoon racked up kills on t34's and KV2's.We tried the nebelwaffers for the first time and they did very well killing seven of the nine artillery Zis-3's.
Great game and great day.

flames of war game at the weekend

And i needed a new river a bit bigger than i had,it all got out of hand as i made it 6ft.The board is two lenghts of fake wood flooring, the river banks are made with bath sealent which is smoothed out with a knife.When dry fine pumice and stones from the garden,slash a bit of paint done.The paved large area is just cardboard  and fine pumice,with the odd battlefront figure and battle debris.I'm going to use it as a town square.Started and finished in a day in the shed of dreams.

Flames of war units continues

At last back onto the flames of war.This time beautiful stugs from Peter pig,the foliage is moulded on and i think works so well,always worth checking out peter pig before anyone else for 15mm stuff.

Also a unit of  21cm NW42 rocket launchers after listening to WWPD podcast from show one they have been banging on about them so it seems rude not to.
