    In this article, I will set out some of my top beginner tips for painting 15mm miniatures for Flames of War.  I will be focusing on achieving good effects for playable models, and not trying to get you winning painting contests.  When one paints hundreds of tanks per year like I do, the focus really is on getting those miniatures on th...

    By Mitch Reed

    One of the Great War platoons I was eager to have in my collection was the German Stoss Platoon.  The actual name of these forces was Stosstruppen which means "Storm Trooper" and represent Germany's late war answer to break the deadlock on the Western Front in 1918. These troops used infiltration tactics when attacking and...

    It had been a while since Jon and I got in a game, and while we are excited about Barbarossa, Jon really wanted to use some of his Desperate Measures Germans. I threw together a Hero Motostrelk list that I thought would be fun, and perform well, and set up the table. We rolled randomly for mission and "Pincer" came up. We made sure to ...

    Long time readers of WWPD will know that I am a huge fan of the Crescent Root buildings. The bulk of my collection is CR's excellent pre-painted buildings and scenery.

    Greetings and Salutations gang,
    Old Man Morin here with some thoughts about building an atypical army list: a mobile one. I recently took a fairly mobile list to the BA tournament at MOAB as a bit of an experiment and came 3rd.  My original idea revolved around an army in which every unit was a vehicle or a unit of troops mounted in a t...

    I recently got on a role converting Wargames Factory plastic Germans into crew for my German self propelled gun (SPG) collection.  I have always hated opened top self propelled guns with ghost crew look.  I want my models to look alive and full of action, I want my SPGs to look less like a tonka truck and more like the WW2 pictures and...

    For those new to the era of Saga "The Crescent & the Cross" one of the most obvious differences must be the introduction of the humble Camel as a cavalry unit.

    Up to now, the cavalry forces in Dark Age Saga have been able to rule the roost with their rapid movements.

    Is it a case of 'move over' horse, make way for the camel?

    Lets take a l...
