With their armies assembled, many of the Boot Campers are taking the next stage to get their Flames of War armies ready for war by adding some paint.

Already, we’re starting to see some cool things going on with these, including the beginning of some nice basing effects.

The Americans Are Coming With Victor's Big Four Of Late War

31 Comments

Over at Battlefront’s Big Four Of Late War, Victor Pesch has sided with the Americans.

 

The Americans Are Coming With Victor's Big Four Of Late War

Victor decided to go for the Americans for the simple reason that he has not made an army of them before! Plus, it gives him a chance for lots of lots of Shermans.

You can read more about his army plans over at Big Four Of Late War.

That colours of war book looks to be a great resource, and these new starter bundles seem a great deal.

I’d say it is a must-buy for anyone playing FoW or Team Yankee, because it covers stuff that the building instructions don’t explain (like the explanation of the various markings)

Any idea the price on the starter set?

I love Bootcamp weekends. Maybe one day I will make it over for one, but until then I will live vicariously through all of you. =)

I hope the Beasts post an compilations video on youtube like they did with the UKGE. That made it so much easier to see all the content and was a great success for me

I got next to nothing done last weekend, thanks to your live blogs from UKGE. Looks like this weekend is going to be a write-off too! (but in a good way, you know what I mean…)

What a great way to celebrate the 75th anniversary of D-day. I was lucky enough to be at Omaha beach on the 70th anniversary 5 years ago and it was a highlight of my life. The history, the sacrifices and the stories were just so awesome. Glad to see Flames of War still going strong, love that game, just need my super microscope glasses when it comes to painting the soldiers. Have a great camp fellas.

Wish I could join you for one of these. I just don’t have the money or the annual leave, sadly.

I want to win something. But this stuff looks so cool. I have to get something, but what? Also I will not be able to get anything anytime soon. As funds are to tight to get anything for the summer at least.
