Good to see another Flames of War project in the army challenge.

My first Flames army was a US Mechanised company supported by lots of M5's, loved painting them.

I tried a FoW entry last year, then fell out of love with the game. This is actually a 28mm Stuart for Bolt Action.

A very poorly lit pic of my first figure.



Need to tone down the teeth which look far to white. But the overall green tinge to everything really pulls the figure together.

Your toast has been burnt and no amount of scraping will get rid of the black bits.

My bad.

What are the BA tanks like? I am looking at picking up some Cromwells for my late war British.

The bigger tanks are actually pretty crap in BA. You can put a quarter of your points into one, and lose it on turn 1. The smaller tanks, like the stuart, that have light anti tank guns to pin other tanks, and a couple of MMGs that can fire at different targets. Upgrade it to have a pintle mounted HMG and and you are throwing out pins all over the place. If you're going to take tanks, take the medium howitzer ones, like the centaur and Cromwell or Sherman CS. That howitzer minces up infantry units.

Hard as it is to believe, but two of the best tanks in the game are an Italian one and a Japanese one, if you consider the pins per points they can put out.

Sweet, thanks for the info. I have always liked the look of the Cromwell and the force I am putting together is a post D-Day/Normandy project so Cromwell's will fit in really well.

That's interesting about the Japanese tank. Tawa is looking at putting a Japanese force together so he'll enjoy that.

If you're really lucky you might find a prepainted Corgi 1/50 diecast one on evilbay. I got my Centaur, which is basically a Cromwell CS with a snorkel exhaust for beach landings, for 32 on there. A tenner dearer than the Warlord one, but if you value your painting time at a tenner an hour, I actually saved myself about 20. And they are beautiful models.

Awesome stuff here, @humakt , really cool idea for the chaos corrupted DE, I like it!

I've just come home and found a half finished GK strike squad, let's see if I can wrap it up in time to start some IG/AM stuff for this competition.
