Meet The Boot Campers! - Time To Get Hobbying


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


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


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


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.

Finally getting a chance to catch up with everything. Was a good weekend of gaming and hobby!


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.
