    The games some guys at my club play are on 8×6 boards and Helicopters are very important. I normally use aircraft as an area denial or troop hunters to knock out APC’s and transports.

    your Czech army looks brilliant; interesting that in the scenario you place your BMP’s in front of your T 72′s rather than the other way round. i only ask as the Abrams can shoot straight though a BMP with no amour save.

    of course,

    and ditto to the comment above regarding numbers. The Soviet forces do better when massed in large numbers and hinds are no exception from what i have seen in games

    About one round of shooting. When they land to unmount the troops they can’t shoot.

    The overall weapons load out is the same.

    But be aware that your Hinds are vulnerable once landed. So keep them out of LOS.

    if hinds carry infantry, what do they loose in firepower. i’ve been tempted to run a VDV company painted up in KLMK, and use the hind as close support against NATO tanks and APC’s

    I’ve got the Proper book and really like playing it. It is a bit of a pain only having 1918 Western Front especially with so much else out there like the Eastern Front which was mobile for pretty much the whole war. I do understand why they chose not to though. I prefer 1914 with [...]

    @torros Thanks for this. Yeah I got the supplement book with WI back in 2014 and it is quite limited but to be honest that’s the only sort of time period I’d play concerning ww1. I just don’t think over the top trench warfare really lends itself to wargaming.. I think someone did an article about [...]

    I haven’t played it. I’m sure it’d fine but I think the army lists last time I looked were only geared for 1918. You could probably use for 17 as well but probably after the 3rd battle of Ieper when the armies went through a bit of reorganisation

    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, [...]
