Paint Up Your Desert Armies With Flames Of War Paint & Basing Kits

March 28, 2017 by brennon

Flames Of War 4th Edition is hotting up (ah, desert puns) and more folks are picking up their armies ready to do battle. With that in mind, Battlefront has their new Flames Of War Paint Kits and a new Basing Kit specifically designed for each of the factions and the landscape you’re fighting for.

There are paint sets for both the British Desert Rats and the German Afrika Korps

…and these are really great for painting up your armies. The folks who came along to the Boot Camp really loved these as they kept things nice and simple when it came to what paints they needed to get stuck into building up their armies.

The big thing for me, however, is this Basing Kit.

It gives you all of the bits and pieces you need to paint up your bases, add some texture and then mix things up with clumps of foliage and such too. Effectively Battlefront is trying to make it as easy as possible to get your armies finished for Flames Of War in the desert.

You can see a run-down of how to use the kit and videos on painting your tanks and infantry over on the links above.

What do you think of these kits?
