M4A3 Sherman


Today I thought I'd post pictures of my first winter themed allied (late war) Sherman.

It was really fun to paint, and matches my infantry well. The model is from Plastic Soldier company.

More soon!

Humble Beginnings

    As a predominantly Warhammer 40k player, I recently decided I wanted a game-change. After some thought, I decided that I would try Flames of War (FoW).  My reasons for this include: being interested in WWII (despite not knowing a lot about it), liking the scale and knowing that people in my gaming group play it too.

    I have started this blog to document my progress and showcase my armies. I have another blog which I use for Games Workshop systems, so this one will be solely dedicated to Flames of war. I plan to blog about my FoW armies, terrain and any WWII resources I gain information from. 

    I decided to start an American Parachute Rifle Company, specifically Easy Company, 506th Regiment, 101st Airborne. After watching (and reading) Band of Brothers, I decided the best place for a WWII novice like me to start, would be with a force I know a bit about. E company is composed of elite soldiers, which I think will offer tactical challenges and mean I should be able to field an army relatively quickly.

    I have begun by building a Parachute Rifle Platoon (and some extra rifle teams).

    Here are pictures:
