This picture just about sums up my Game Four of the Flames of War US Mid-War Nationals.


  1. Brilliant.

    Absolutely brilliant!

    Guess we've had games like this at one point, eh?!

    For some reason your site hasn't been popping up on my blogroll for ages: now it's back up I'm VERY impressed by the quality of some of these Flames models...and the photo tweaking!

    Keep it up,

    1. Thanks you. I have been working hard on my 15mm technique. I haven't posted much until just recently. I had to speed paint an army for the Flames of War Mid-War Nationals at the first of June. I took some pictures of my army at the tournament and decided to update my blog.

  2. Ah.... I've been there with my Guards Shermans. Hope you came out of that with at least a few points?

  3. My aircraft & infantry saved the day and turned it into a 4-3 loss.
