Meet The Boot Campers! - Time To Get Hobbying

71 Comments

There are plenty of Boot Campers here this weekend, including a few first timers who are ready for their very first experience of Flames of War.

John talked to a couple of them to see how they’re getting on, as well as Warren who is returning once again to the fields of WWII.

Catching Up With Boot Campers

32 Comments

We stop off for a chat with Boot Campers Martin and Stefan, to find out how they’re getting on with the Flames of War boot camp.

Martin has been getting to grips with the 15mm scale figures, while Stefan has his eye on some of the fantastic gaming tables for his first game.

Warren's Germans Get Some Colour

45 Comments

Warren has been hobbying up a storm, and has even made a start to adding some colour to his German army.

Having had a thought on what colours will work best for these tiny fighting figures, Warren whips out his air brush and gets stuck into painting.

We Return To Warren's Airbrushing

40 Comments

We come back to find out how Warren’s doing with his airbrushing and he looks ready for his very own 3 Colours Up.

Warren is adding a zenith to his miniatures, using the airbrush to add some texture and shade to these 15mm miniatures.

Can we get an unboxing for Fury and maybe a play through. Interested to see if this is a viable tank only game with a bit more depth that Tanks skirmish game.

Fury isn’t a separate game, it’s just a Flames of War starter set with only tanks in it

Looking forward to this after seeing the vlogs of the table setups. For me, I would pick the German force and once they are done I’d move onto the British.

Have a good weekend boot campers 👍

The Hit the Beach starter set is such a great value. The unit cards since the start of version 4 have been such a great addition. Your YouTube videos are great

These bootcamp weekends are amazing! And now that my wife got hired on by a major airline, I might actually have a chance to fly across the pond for a visit!

Have a cracking weekend of gaming and hobby everybody, the tables look epic…even though I never played FoW until now, the three different new bundels look very tempting.
