Flames Of War post

So First off, i am in the process of building a FOW table, and i wanted a heavy city feel to it. The armies I am in the process of building are British Airborne and 4th Canadian Armoured, both of which were involved in the liberation of Holland. So i have been gathering pictures of small towns and cities, to get a feel for 1940's Europe.

I was in a model store here in Edmonton, and found these N gage models and think they are about the right size for Flames of war terrain. On the right you will find a Brewery building that i built over the weekend. Never really understood why they bother to using different colours for parts as most people paint the models after they build them. on the left you will see a store front building, made of poly-resin, i really like the model, as it adds height to a game i haven't really seen much in the way of built up areas. I'm thinking of painting it with a black primer, a dark red brick finish and white trim on the wood. It is of pretty basic construction, and was only about 15 dollars, so i built two. why buy one when you can buy two, right?

And the last thing, i have primered a bunch of tanks to be base coated and weathered this weekend.

talk to you all again soon.

Hello internets,

4 months late, but i actually have pictures.

So here is the first of 4 drop pods i painted in the Hiatus. I have decided to go with the light blue colour scheme, with a black trim. Reminicent of Ultramarine 5th Company. As i have stated before, I am making a post heresy Marine army. I still need to weather this one with black. i will be using the airbrush to add smoke burn marks on the bottom and the top around the engine.

the next photo is the group of 4 drop pods. The idea is to have 7 drop pods in total, 4 standard pods and 3 Dreadnought-pods. There will also be a squad of Assault marines that will drop along side the army.

I'll post some more photo's in the next couple of days to me Flames of War army. I'm interested in making a table with a heavy city content. I have found some N gage models that should fit the bill.
