To Hell and Back with Flames of War   Leave a comment

I was inspired after watching Audie Murphy’s To Hell and Back to play another Italy themed battle.  I tried the US 3rd ID against German Grenadiers a couple months ago at 1500 points, so I upped the points to 1750 and kept similar army structures.

Anzio – testing the 3rd ID list   2 comments

I have had the Dogs and Devils book for quite a long time and finally got around to putting together a battle with my son, Andrew.  He played the US with some of my help and I played the German 719th Grenadiers.  Ended up being a late night battle as we didnt even get the table put together until 11pm.  Good thing he is still on summer vacation!

July Flames of War Wrap up   Leave a comment

Well I am back from a work trip to Japan and had a week to paint some miniatures before I head to Scotland for vacation.

A couple months ago I stripped the paint off my two King Tigers and then bought two more to give me one platoon and a company CO. I have been painting them for several months and had to take a break while I ordered decals from Doms Decals. I wanted the red numbers for the Tigers. I had seen some reports that some of the Tiger IIs had blue numbers. That would have been interesting to put on. My free hand isn’t good enough, so I went with the red numbers. I designated 3rd company for the Henchel turret and 2nd company for the Porsche turet design.

Battle for Brest – Hill 105   Leave a comment

To continue my interest in the campaign to neutralize Festung Brest, I thought it would be great to try out the offical Battlefront scenario Hill 105.  The original scenario uses lists from Festung Europa (FE1).  For this scenario I used the 2nd Infantry Division PDF anda FJ list from Earth and Steel.

Historical basis for the scenario from the BF website.
