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.

I’ve been waiting for these releases and it just seems great. Very good value, so much things, pretty inexpensive compared to some other wargames. This will draw people into it for sure.
