Big Four Of Late War - Wayne's Austrians

22 Comments

Over at Battlefront’s Big Four Of Late War, Wayne Turner is fielding the German forces. Or, rather, the Austrians.

 

Big Four Of Late War - Wayne's Austrians

For his inspiration, Wayne turned to the history of the 2.Panzerdivision. This division moved its home barracks to Vienna after the German annexation of Austria, and was mostly made up of Austrians from that point.

The force later saw combat in Normandy, engaging with the British 50th Infantry and 7th Armoured Divisions.

You can find out more about this force and how Wayne is looking to theme his army around them over at the Big Four Of Late War page.

Casey's Soviets Winter The Big Four Of Late War

21 Comments

Battlefront’s Casey Davies is fielding the Soviets for Big Four of Late War and takes us through his plans for a winter tank army.

 

Casey's Soviets Winter The Big Four Of Late War

Casey has made quite a few Soviet armies in the past, but has yet to finish a force of winter tanks. This time though, he’s driving on ahead and ready to create an army that looks as though it has already weathered the worst that war has to throw at it.

We return to find out how Warren’s game went. Is their a future for UFOs in the field of war?

Unfortunately, things did not go so well for the weird world war brigade. But that won’t stop them returning to the battlefield!

After making a spectacular entrance this morning, Warren’s UFOs sadly ended up grounded.

Still, I doubt this will be their last flight. The Nachtwulf will return!

Calling A Close To The Flames Of War D-Day Boot Camp

73 Comments

That’s it for the Flames of War D-Day Boot Camp. It has been a fantastic weekend of building, painting, and, of course, gaming.

Thanks to everyone who came and took part, and to everyone who has been following our progress on the Live Blog too.

As we wrap up, it is important we take a moment to look back on the history of Normandy and what happened in a time where the world lost track of its sanity.

I cant wait to see how Warren’s Luftwaffe UFOs fare in battle. I remember when I first saw him do it back in 2013, it was the best.

So, the final day. Have you been recording (taking note) of game results, so we can see whether the allies got a foot hold in Normandy, or were pushed back into the sea?

Yeah, but no STUGs. If you’re fielding UFOs then you MUST field STUGs. It should be in an army list somewhere!

So have the Allies started the push inland, or is the Fatherland watching some soggy remnants being evacuated amongst the wrecks of burning landing craft?

If things go bad for the UFO’s, perhaps they will release the Vril paneers or project x.
