FLAMES KHAN!!!!

It's that time of year again: FLAMESCON!

FlamesCon is Battlefront's annual wargaming convention and this year it'll be bigger than before. We've got five tournaments lined up for 26/27 October. There is a Late War, Mid War, and Early War tournament, as well as a special Open Fire tournament for new players to try out the game and the tournament scene. Also, Phil will be running a Vietnam event to round off the wargaming tournaments. There is also going to be a Spartacus tournament based on the popular boardgame of the same name. All in all, it's gonna be huge.

Rockets, Mortars, and Submachine-guns!

A couple of weeks ago I posted an article about the Desk of Mystery. This documented all of my current projects at the time that were sitting on my painting table. Since then, I've completed a couple of them and I've finally got around to getting pictures taken and ready for the blog.

First up are the Static Rocket Launchers. I had 6 of these essentially painted up and awaiting basing for my Warsaw Uprising German army. However, with the WWPD D-Day campaign looming (at the time of that last article), I decided to retask them as fortifications for a Festungskompanie in Atlantik Wall. You can field them in 2-4 launchers, so I'll have two batteries somehow totaling six all together (3+3 or 4+2).
