One of my miniature dreams is to collect several modern (1980s +) armies with the goal of having a company or skirmish level battle. I am not sure on which rule set would be the most viable. I like FOW because I know the rules and it can be applied to modern vehicles. However, I do have Force on Force and some modern forces already based for that game. Plus there are probably a number of alternatives. These are my first modern Russian miniatures. I bought the T80 with ERA to compliment the Abrams tanks that I already have.

Over the years, I have accumulated a fair number of Panzer IV tanks. Mostly from Battlefront, but with the release of PSC tanks I added another company of tanks. Then I got to thinking… wouldn’t it be cool to see how other manufacturers stack up against Battlefront. In this post we will look at the Battlefront Panzer IV H with metal schurzen, Battlefront Panzer IV H with plastic schurzen, Battlefront Panzer IV J, Plastic Solider Company Panzer IV H, Peter Pig Panzer IV H, Quality Castings Panzer IV H, and the Old Glory Panzer IV H.
During World War II, the German Air Force (Luftwaffe) raised a number of Fallschirmjäger units. The Luftwaffe even built up a division-sized unit of three Fallschirmjäger regiments plus supporting arms and air assets, known as the 7th Flieger Division.
After quite a bit time checking online websites and posting on the Yahoo FOW PTO forum, I have found some good candidates for Japanese artillery, mortars, AA, and more AT guns.
The 105mm Type 92 artillery battery is primarily a combination of Quality Casting packs to include:
- Japanese Command
- Japanese Artillery Crew
- Japanese Type 92 guns
It has taken me a very long time to finally complete this army. I first start collected Japanese miniatures at the 2008 Historicon and picked up the latest piece on Thursday.
The miniatures are a combination of command decision and Peter Pig. The Chi Ha Shinhoto tanks are Quality Casting. The Type 92 70mm and Type 94 37mm guns are by Peter Pig.
