Flames of Version 4   Leave a comment

Version 4 is here.  I was able to attend the Beasts of War Boot camp for FOW Version 4 and it was an incredible experience.  I would go back for any other game I am interested, just to hang out and have a good time.  I met a lot of great people that I would love to game with anytime.

Fusiliers have crossed the Our River in the early morning hours of December 16th, 1944. Their immediate objective is the town of Café Schinker. The town is defended by “L” Company of the 110th Infantry Regiment of the 28th Infantry Division. The US must try to hold on tow the town, while the German Grenadiers must quickly break this position to clear the way for the Panzers pf the Panzer Lehr Division when they start crossing assault bridges being erected across the Our River.

DAK Panzers   1 comment

The DAK panzers have been one of those long term projects we all have.  I bought most of the models at least 6 years ago minus the PSC half tracks and Panzer IIIs.
