Flames of war army for sale!

Not to treat this like craigs list or something, but to those who follow me and enjoy flames of war, I AM selling my SS panzer army with Panzer grenadier attachment.

EBAY LINK

If you’re interested, cool. If you live somewhere and I’m not selling it internationally… might be able to work something out?

Alrighty, WIP update for my German Bolt Action miniatures.

My 1/48th scale Tiger was replaced by this new 1/56th scale Tiger. Seems people were… confused by my slightly larger Tiger model, so I got a piece for the same scale to stop the odd looks.

Added a Hetzer to my army too. The Hetzer costs less than a STUG G, and has the same defenses and gun as the STUG. The difference though is a Hetzer cannot take a veteran crew.

The pictures at the bottom are my WIP shots for my new roads and map filler that will become a forest. The idea is that the forest will be either a haven for flanking infantry OR some roads will be put though it to allow for a flanking/ ambush area. Great map addition for hidden set-up rules.

Incoming German armor!

New tank warfare book from Bolt Action has arrived at nearby store and while I would LOVE to get the book…

None of my opponents want to fight me pound for pound in armor… no idea why.

*Tiger engine rumbles in the distance*

I’ll post some WIP and pictures of my new armor. Also my wheels for the Puma arrived at the store too. I had ordered a Puma model and only HALF the wheels arrived. Warlord games (eventually) gave me another Puma to make up for this… but now I have a hull of a Puma just lying around -_-

WIP updates for my new trees!

Some scale pictures vs troops and pictures of my new Volks grenadiers unit. The unit was designed just to add fire onto enemy forces and designed to combat the increase by our local USA and Russian players infantry horde forces.

So this is a view of my work so far on my new terrain and new models.

The Pre-painted Detached Terrace is an amazing little piece. Very detailed inside as you can hopefully see in the pictures.Mine was a bit of a factory reject sadly.

The Warlords plastic wall is great. Simple, and easy to change it into anything you might need.

And finally some WIP shots of the Blitzkrieg starter box I purchased. Currently thinking of making them a volksgrenadiers squad, reinforce my other heer rifleman teams and I made a sniper to fight my friend’s Stalingrad like force of Russians.

REINFORCEMENTS FOR THE FATHERLAND…

Got some new German stuff today in the form of a blitzkrieg era box. These men are from the Invasion of France, but their gear does not change much from the Normandy invasion, except for the lacking of the MG34 and more MG42s in squads.

Pictures to come soon…

Managed to draw one thing today, and so I tried drawing a vehicle. Hetzer was on the brain, no idea why it’s in the desert, but oh well.
Anyhow, it’s just something I managed in the few hours I had before heading to work tonight.

NEW TERRAIN!!

So for the VERY FIRST TIME I have some tree based terrain that looks good.

My table right now is a serious WIP, having only some home made roads, a few pieces of terrain I picked up here and there, and others. These are from: HERE

Hoping to pick up a hedgerow set soon. Get ready for an Operation Cobra themed map.

A Normandy themed map will be in the future too. Using the German D Day Defenders box set.

A beach attachment to my board at home will be interesting to devise. Sandy beach, followed by open ground with concrete trench networks and then finally reaching I believe farms and the hedgerows. Atlantic Wall
