    At that scale no you don’t need too much detail and I agree it makes assembly tedious. That’s why I like the Battlefront plastics (and plastics only). The PSC Panzer IIIs are okay though, a little bit longer and a bit more prep to magnetise – where I draw the line is having separate tracks [...]

    I think the extra detail of the PSC tank and how it’s done (those ff-ing hatches) is rather silly in these small scales, because it adds to the build time without adding anything to the model.

    Heck, I’d even say this detail makes any mistakes one makes during a build even more annoying.

    The pace slowed down over the last couple of weeks as the Battlefront releases through stores seem to have a few delays and mainly because I am waiting for decals from Battlefront directly. Without these it is a bit difficult to finish off the first wave. So I used the time to turn out some [...]

    The first reinforcements arrived last week. Although I don’t think that we will be running many lists with Tigers or spam out on Honeys it’s still nice to have to have at least a minimum number. The Battlefront plastic Tiger has been out for a while so there’s not much to say about them. I [...]

    As a longtime collector of Battlefront models and books the arrival of Flames of War 4 naturally piqued my interest. I say collector because the FoW ruleset had become far too complex to teach to family members with no particular interest in WW2. On the other hand I have had a longstanding interest in WW2, [...]

    We played a really fun game of TY. I’m hooked and can’t wait for round 2. I posted the replay on my blog.

    Very nice. I have use a few PSC kits in building up my Panzer IV’s, if I am not mistaken.

    I’m amassing a chunky little British force despite not collecting British simply because I have a tendency to pick up your 15mm kits to have a tinker with…

    Wow, thanks very much, @highrack and @limburger . :D Always glad to hear when that kind of material is well-received, actually I’m often worried I’m laying it on a little thick. Enough of the dusty old history! Let’s chuck some dice! That kind of thing. :D I’ve done quite a bit of writing for the Desert War (not [...]

    That is very true, and I have. I currently have read over 165 books since 2010, 70 of which are on WW2/WWI and 9 of those were on desert warfare. Yes, I actually keep a log of what I read. So much information out there, it is great. But from a gaming perspective, having FoW [...]

    You could always go to a bookshop and buy a book out of the historical section about the campaign in the Western Desert

  • highrack posted on the forum topic FoW 4th Edition in the group Avatar Flames of War:   2 months, 2 weeks ago · View

    I too hope they do a nice fat book on Africa. I like how the previous books are filled with so much historical detail that you can learn from. The new rules do seem to allow for a faster paced game. I watched @oriskany ‘s videos from the weekend and am really excited to get [...]
