How to Speed Paint the New Honey Stuart from Battlefront

By Ry

I’m back and I have managed to get my hands on one of the new Plastic Honey tanks from Battlefront. With all the new version 4 kits on the way and a pile of Team Yankee that stands higher than me. It’s time to look at quick ways to get the new releases on the table as quick as possible. Not to mention that they are just 5 points for a troop of 3 tanks and to fill a full squadron you’re going to need 3 boxes for 27 points (did I type that… oops)

PART 2

Now….to start on the figures.

VMC 886 Green Grey for the shoes…..if I go over the black shoes in grey….they don’t look like they’ve just been fitted at a shoe store.

VMC 921 British Uniform now for the pants and all figures.

Again….I’m trying to leave the cracks and crevices black and just paint the raised surfaces.

I don’t know about you….but as I get older and progress through my hobby I get better at painting figures. It gets to a point where you look back at what you painted when you started and it’s so bad that you don’t want to take it out of the case anymore. This 25 Pounder Battery is such a case. I bought and painted them about 6 years ago and don’t even want to look at them anymore. As a result I’ve decided to re-do them and give them a…. extreme makeover.

Please note that David uses a mix range of paints, to make it easier for the reader all paints have be matched to the Vallejo Model Color.

PART 1 US Armoured Infantry – Step by Step Painting Guide

Someone has recently asked me for a step by step painting guide. I hope this is of assistance. I’m doing the 3rd Late War US Armoured Platoon for Wazza’s Army. I believe my method might be a bit different to others….I start by simply basing the unpainted figures on the etched bases according to the Platoon diagram. I try to get the mix of Rifles, MG’s and SMG’s as per the diagram. I then use the normal Polly filler to fill the bases and cover over the Figure stands. A base nearly filled with Polly filler. I use my hobby knife or anything else that is flat. Continue reading

The Great One-Dayer!: How to run a one day tournament

By Ben

We talk a lot on the podcast and on Facebook about the “one dayer” Flames of War event. We go to them and enjoy them, but what if you want to do more? What if you want to become an organiser and “Give it a go!”. The following is a brief but concise run down on all the hard work your local tournament organiser goes through! We hope you find it helpful or interesting or at lease informative. 🙂

How to run a one day tournament:

Step 1: Find a venue.

Preferably a store that sells FOW.
Get a firm date from the store owner/manager on when you can run your tournament.
(Make sure that they are happy for you to have the game space all day.)
Confirm with them that they will open early and close late for you. Don’t forget to include one hours time to set up/pack up a table per person. (E.G. Three people will take one hour to set three tables.)
Confirm that the date isn’t too close to another event in your area, check the Battlefront calendar & forum.
Ask the store holder to order in between 20-30 single unit packs of flames of war. ($18-$30 AUD ea.)
