Flames of war - Feb, 8 2020


One of things I appreciate more in my club is that my mates play different games every months ... I'm sure that in every wargames clubs there are some system rules that are most popular than other but to change sometimes is good for me. So this time Ezio and Riccardo decided for a match of Flames of war.

Miniatures are 15mm and they are painted by Riccardo (German forces) and Ezio (English troops and tanks).

As usual my post is not a battle report but only a way to share with other lovers of our hobby some pics

Below a photo of the battlefield …



… and some details of Ezio’s army



A battalion of Sherman and another one of M10 …



… ready to destroy a German tank group


To conclude … a German HQ completely surrounded by English troops

Saracens vs Hungarian Knights - SAGA Jan 18, 2020


Last week my friends decided to play with Studio Tomahawk’s rule sets … I have to admit that after Bolt Action is one of the wargame most played in my club.

This time Antonio and Flavio decided to play a “classical” match: Saracens vs Hungarian Knights

Antonio paints the Arabian miniatures while the European army is prepared by Aurelian.

The clash was hard for both the sides …




… and the European knights use their typical formation to break the enemy line




At the end … the game is decided by the “real” fighters … the two heroes ...


"Only one must survive!"

Sd.Kfz.181 (Panther) and Sd.Kfz.171 (Tiger I) in an Ardenne scenario


Our preparations for Bolt tournament we will host on February 29, 2020 are continuing … last week my friends tested an “Ardenne style” scenario with new pines bought by Riccardo and … why not to take some pics of them?



Last month, for Rapid fire and Bolt Action, I ended to paint some Panzer V – Panther (Sd.Kfz.171) and some Panzer VI – Tiger I (Sd.Kfz.181). In this way, I complete my army list in 20mm and my club mates have new tanks if they decide to play a scenario with them






The colour scheme for the tank camouflage I decide to use is based on a light yellow because the effect .... seeing the pics … in my opinion permits to increase the visual result



I have to admit that with Alberto’s houses the result of the “Ardenne style” scenario is very good for me
