Flames of War Display Board

Lack of available painting supplies made me focus on some terrain activities. I finished the first (of 40) display boards for my gaming room cabinet: German Pionierkompanie in defensive position. I photographed the steps so enjoy the tutorial. You can see the placement of the terrain board in the game room.

Flames of War Ruined Huts

I finished some bombed out 15mm buildings. These will mostly be used for rural landscapes in Flames 0f War (say in Russia) but the lack of “tech” on the models also makes them useful for quite a range of earlier historical periods. They are a rough match for my undamanged wooden huts below. All models are resin cast from unknown manufacturers (or at least I forgot…).

Flames of War Bunkers

I am slowly chipping away at a small mountain of Flames of War 15mm resin cast pieces from different manufacturers. I acquired all that stuff in a burst of enthusiasm and now it’s sluggishly getting done. This one is a small single piece bunker. I am still trying to figure out how to do decent aged concret. This technique uses a lot of streaking whereas I have previously just drybrushed (older example of drybrushed bunker below).

Flames of War Germans up

As the first of the “bigger armies”, I uploaded some 60+ pics of the Flames of War German army under Games & Armies\Flames of War.

US & UK forces are in the photography stage right now.

I also had to manually edit every single image on the site since wordpress somehow decides to show all images at 1 pixel smaller than the original size. That downscaling with an inferior algorithm blurred many of the images more than necessary. As far as I could tell, a manual fix of the HTML was the only way around this. Note that as a side effect none of the images on this site are “clickable” anymore. That’s a good thing since clicking on them just led you to the same image with 1 pixel more horizontal and vertical resolution…

Added FoW Campaign & Mordheim pages

I added an old Flames of War linked campaign as a sample to see if people like this kind of stuff (under Gaming/Campaigns). Let me know if this is of interest.

The entire Mordheim section is up, including some Mordheim buildings (all under Games & Armies/Mordheim) and a tutorial for their construction (under Workshop/Tutorial):
