We stop in with John to find out what he's been building up today. The first of these is one of the tricky Artillery kits which is coming out for 4th Edition.

This is a gorgeous piece but it will take some time and patience to get right. So, dive in and follow along.

Hobby Time With John & Company

72 Comments

We sit in with John and company to go through some of their hobby and find out where things are sitting in terms of the painted armies.

As you can see we've been seeing some more cool techniques being showed off and infantry kicking arse!

We stop in with John and find out about building up the M3 Grant Tank from the sets here at the Boot Camp.

Masking Techniques With Will

We are looking at some interesting masking techniques which you can use with spraying. We've talked about this over the last few weeks on The Weekender.

We shall see how this pays off tomorrow and if the technique is worth giving a go yourself.

a couple of the questions I have at this point:

I play Americans 1943. And I was wondering why they haven’t released more of the new formation sheets.

And will the digital forces charts on the forces.flamesofwar.com be updated to this new format, or will I have to buy the new ones seperately?

Questions!

what happened to “Jumbos Lead the Way”??!!

Do Aircraft range in every time now with bombardment attacks from bombs and rockets?

Jumbos lead the way is gone, it’s just the mistaken target rule now.

I believe aircraft self spot for there own bombardment and they range in as usual. They come in on a 4+ now and if shot down they don’t return..

Put some very bright light up (sun) over those tables, and turn on the heat to a nice 44 degree Celsuis, to get that blury hot visions over the sands, and have a real desert feeling when pushing those tanks across.

After a cold night under the desert stars, my guess is the forces can’t wait to get warmed up!

Man, this release looks great. Never much cared for the desert war, but this may turn me around.

This stuff has never really taken my fancy until now, but I reckon I could really get into desert warfare.

Seems like another well-organized BoW-Bootcamp for 15mm-gamers – keep it going!
