Excellent! I’m happy to see you getting back to this project, and they look great. I can’t wait to see some fights!

That 5′ x 3′ table you used for the Bolt Action games will be excellent for a good bash in 6mm or for a decent sized skirmish with plenty of room for manoeuvre.

I promise I haven’t forgotten about this. I have just been making slow, plodding progress. The main thing holding me back is my lack of terrain. I need hedges/bocage, roads, wooded areas, walls. Other than that, here are my pretty much finished Normandy farms.27/08/2018 at 00:10 #97707telzy amberParticipant
I love the tree bark LOS blockers. Did you soak the bark in anything to prevent slow rot?27/08/2018 at 03:26 #97722

Thank you! I did not soak them in anything to prevent slow rot…I guess we will find out sooner or later if I regret that decision. I just picked them up from the play area floor and began painting them.07/10/2018 at 11:48 #10097407/10/2018 at 12:14 #100975MikeKeymaster17/08/2019 at 21:08 #12017118/08/2019 at 02:21 #120181
Everything is looking great, I’m loving those Dog-faces, and the terrain is superb!

Looking forward to seeing these in action. I’m taking notes in the hope of doing something similar at half size.

I put in an order with Heroics and Ros last night in an attempt to build up my forces. Due to a mix up with my first purchase from them I ended up with four Sherman 76s and no regular M4s. What am I meant to do with four of those? So I ordered a whole bunch of regular Shermans, some M5s, half tracks, more infantry. I also ordered a bunch of German stuff including the sexy Panzerjäger IV.18/08/2019 at 14:39 #120203ThomastonParticipant
Cut the barrel down and cover the back of the turret with stowage?
Make wrecked tanks? Smoke could cover up teh turret rear.

I dig it.
Might I point out an inconvenient fact? You and I both have enough toys to play some Western Front WWII games in 6mm, but neither of us have yet to play a game. And don’t use the ‘all my terrain’s not done yet’ excuse, I’ve seen (at least some of) what you’ve got, you could play some games! Me too. I can’t for the life of me figure out why I’ve got some weird sort of inertia that’s keeping me from getting these on the table. Perhaps you and I need to enter into a pact? 😉

Well, you’ve caught me with my pants down, unawares, as it were!
Gauntlet cast, gauntlet taken! 😉
And I appreciate the shove, I’m overdue. I got two dogfights and two platoon-level (Vietnam War) fights in this weekend, guess it’s time to bust out the 6mm WWII stuff though. I shall return.
Just no cackling when your stuff looks loads better than mine!

They are looking great, as always, can’t wait to see them in action. I assume you’re still going with “A Sergeant’s War”? And good luck sneaking up on a King Tiger 😉
FYI, I have held up my end of the bargain: I’ve played three 6mm games using Blitzkrieg Commander. The first two are already posted, I’m working on the last batrep now.

The buildings, are they hacme mdf ones?29/09/2019 at 19:55 #123446
Jack I saw those reports and they intrigue me. I just struggle with abstraction of terrain at small scales, where a house may represent just a build up area.
Fred, yes they are the HACME buildings. I really like them and they are fairly cheap.29/09/2019 at 20:59 #123449
I understand, but I don’t mind at higher echelons (each fight here has 2-3 battalions per side). For lower level/higher fidelity, I go with 10mm or 15mm.
