Warren has got his tanks built and that means it’s time to give them some colour too.

Having “borrowed” Justin’s pizza box, Warren and some of the others have chipped in for a primer to get the proper colour for his German machines of 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.

This series has been awesome. I think Battlefront has hit this one out of the park.

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.
