Flames Of War Romanian Puscasi Platoon & Sixes To Hit Wargaming Blog

Check out this great little guide to painting a Romanian Puscasi platoon for Flames of War on the new Sixes to Hit hobby blog

Also worth pointing out that these Romanians are now up on ebay so if you're looking at getting a Romanian force for Flames of War (especially following the recent Stalin's Europe release which includes a Late War Romanian briefing).

Sixes To Hit is a new member of The Glorious Banner Exchange. For more information on The Glorious Banner Exchange please see the side bar of this blog.

Firestorm Berlin Campaign Map

Well it's taken a bit of work but I finally have my Flames of War campaign map drawn up!

Now all that's left to do is make up all the counters etc and we can get things underway!

Flames of War Campaign - Firestorm Berlin

Currently working on a Flames of War Campaign that I'm calling Firestorm Berlin. It's going to use the Firestorm rules from the Bagration and Market Garden box sets with some tweaks of my own to make it work for me and my gaming club.

One thing I'm changing is swapping the set Firestorm troops for generic counters. There are two reasons for this change. One is to make it a lot easier for me to represent the custom map in digital format. The second is to make it easier for my group to game. Instead, each counter will count as a set number of points chosen as 'free' support platoon from Fortress Europe. This way, the players can squeeze something extra into their list without having to buy models specifically for that purpose. It increases the flexibility and potential fun of the campaign for everyone.

The campaign starts in December 1944 with the front lines set as they were before the commencement of the Ardennes Offensive. This seemed a great point at which to start as across the map of France, the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany etc. things are fairly even. The allies are going to have the advantage to represent the fact that they were on the offensive at this point.

I'm going to have a few more posts about this and go into greater detail soon. The map will be finished shortly and once the campaign is underway I'll be posting reports up on here to show it's progress. I'll also make the rules sections that I write available for others to use but for obvious reasons Battlefront Firestorm rules will not be appearing on here!

Marder III M Tank Hunter Platoon

Now that the Panzerjäger Platoon is finished I'm trying to decide whether to paint my Sturmtigers, Henschel HS192B3s or some Panzergrenadiers.

Working on the crew at the moment but except some finishing touches (and decals) the Marders are very nearly finished.

Trying to decide what to work on next. Sturmtigers, Henschels or the Infantry...?

Ebay Stuff

Some of the minis my friend has listed on ebay here will be finishing soon. There are lots of bits and a good few of them carry on into tomorrow as well.

On the subject of ebay listings. I will have some more of the Destroyed Vehicle Markers to go up soon. Waiting for a break in the snow so that I can work on them!
