    Well not much more I can say here really my area of “expertise” is with Guardsmen. The Canadians though are probably the best of the “Britishers” as their special rules are really really good. As for specific lists I would really consider the Road to Rome book one the Rifle Co is so good you [...]

    Thank you. I will post photos of the army as it is being completed.

    Honestly it’s what you find the easiest method for you. Generally if you are using a brush assembling, priming then painting I find easy. When I use an airbrush and I will be using more than one colour for camouflage and weathering I find it much easier to paint each part then assemble the model. [...]

    My German force is mostly a courtesy army for others to use; I’ve been neglectful at some of the support for this unit…. this set will allow me to equip it nicely….

    @marqod. I was fortunate enough to purchase the 3rd Canadian division rifle company box set while it was still available yeeeeears ago. I never had the opportunity to field it. It has been a labour of love for some time. So all the main points you were hitting are in my hands. I have purchased [...]

    I very, very, recently scored the PBI Infantry Company…… I am leaning more and more to painting it Canadian. I came to this conclusion because… The very Canadian options kept popping into my head…. Including Sherman Vs (organized along Canadian Lines/Major David V Currie…), Land Mattresses, and Ram APCs There is an option of using [...]

    No problem. To add to that, here’s my tips for getting started with a Late-War Canadian force. Most of this is also valid for Mid-War Canadians in Italy or even more generic British forces. First, decide if you want an infantry or armoured force. The choice for that is similar to that for other nations [...]

    @ marqod. Thank you for sharing. Insightful and helpful. :)

    Well, Canadians are my primary army in FoW. I started off with an armoured force of Shermans, and slowly expanded into infantry as well. They’re not that different from regular British forces, although they do get some unique equipment later into the war, like their Land Mattress rocket artillery. Like the British, whose doctrines they [...]

    For me it all depends on time. I am meticulous with painting my models. Sometimes it can drive me crazy as I want to finish them for the table. Yet the ones I “mass produce” for the table IE. Assembling my model, base coat, paint and detail works very well. I am happy with my [...]

    The Flames of War site (official) I find to be very very good – and has a great forum where rules questions etc are actually answered by the game designers. Perhaps this could be a reason to not having so many other groups – as they all go to the main one?
