Well the 200th Anniversary of Waterloo has come and gone and it's been awhile since I've painted anything Napoleonic. I did check out the exhibition game at NWS which was an amazing sight. Hundreds (thousands?) of beautifully painted minis.
One reason is I dusted off a box of Flames of War miniatures that I had in my garage. The infantry and guns were painted by Chris at NWS some 10 years ago, while I painted the tanks.
The tank bug bit and I've started painting tanks again. First it was a Matilda Senior, then a box of Japanese Type 95 Ha-Go tanks, then Matilda I's ... Now it's every tank I've ever loved as a little kid.
Played my very first game of Flames of War with Hayden, Troy and Lethal Lee earlier this month and it was an absolute blast. Pics and battle report can be found here: http://ironhaiden666.blogspot.com.au
It was Brits and Aussies vs. Germans and Italians. Yes, I DID take an Early War British army in a Mid War game. Yes, all those Matilda tanks did blow up on their start line before I even had my first turn ...
Anyhow, here are some pics. First up, rifle platoon and 2 pounder anti-tank guns. I love the bases and have yet to work out how Chris did these.
