The Flames of War website has been updated with several new articles.
Christmas Sneak Peek
With Christmas only a few days away, we thought you’d like a sneak peek inside of Santa’s sack to see what will be on offer in the Flames Of War range during the New Year.
Victor’s Hungarian Assault Gun Battery
While working on Stalin’s Europe, there were two lists that jumped out at me as something I’d like to try. The Soviet Sherman Battalion, and the Hungarian Assault Gun Battery. While I still might do the Sherman’s one day, after seeing Wayne’s Zrínyis painted up, and getting the opportunity to use them in two different battle reports, my choice became clear.
The Scots Divisions Updated
We have now combined the 51st Highland Division with the 15th Scottish Division to create a new Scots Divisions Intelligence Briefing covering both these divisions in Normandy. The Scots Divisions PDF is now has updated points to be in line with Turning Tide and Earth & Steel.
Building a Feldherrnhalle Panzerkampfgruppe
I immediately liked the look of the Feldhernhalle Panzer IV/70s when I saw that they would be available in Stalin’s Europe. I was already a fan of the low profile look of the StuG anyway so an opportunity to run similar units was appealing. The aesthetics of the gaming table also play a large part in the hobby for me and these units look awesome once they are painted up and placed ready for battle.
Secret Santa: Battlefront Style
We wanted to do something fun to get the studio in the Christmas spirit, and remind us what the holiday season is really about: adding to your toy soldier addiction, uh,… I mean, collection . We decided to adapt the tired old Secret Santa tradition, to let us practise our modelling skills and give people something they can actually use – a custom-made Flames Of War objective.
