Review: Battlefront's 7.5cm PaK40 Platoon (Winter) (GBX73)

What can be said about the PaK40? It is an iconic German Anti-tank Gun. Battlefront has created another great box set for Flames of War with their 7.5cm PaK40 Platoon (Winter) (GBX73).  This box set is unique in that not only do you get a gun crew in winter uniforms, but you get the new plastic PaK40s and "recessed" bases from the Open Fire boxed set.

M24 Chaffees from the Cavalry Group Army Box

When we received the new Cavalry Group army box for review, we of course had to split it up among various reviewers- knocking out an army on your own is a hell of a process!  Most of the Cav Group stuff got scattered to the wind all around the US, but I committed to doing 7 of the chaffees myself.  I'll keep this review short since I've already done a chaffee review.

King Tiger From KG Peiper Army Box Review

Article by Tom Burgess
I’ve never been an “Uber-Tank” guy, but when offered a chance to do review of some Battlefront provided miniatures for WWPD I thought “Hey, one tank will be easy!” So I volunteered to build, paint, and review the new GBX69 Konigstiger model. With its included Fallschirmj√§ger riders, a couple of these are just the ticket for an upcoming KG Peiper game I have in mind. Needing two for that KG Peiper mini-campaign, I decided to get a 2nd Konigstiger and to paint them together.

This King Tiger is available in the KG Peiper Box.

Against the Grain - Midwar German Grenadiers

It has been a while since my last contribution however you will be pleased to know that I have been busy painting during this period. My last post detailed the methods that I use to paint faces in 15mm. Although time consuming and frustrating at times, painting face details will provide you with some rewarding results.

Episode 50- The Wrath of Sean!  The original host of News From the Front is back in the studio!

0:00- Intro & AAR
0:52- Discussing Security Sections & Motivation Tests, What dos "Either" mean?  Muster 2013 discussion, T-26 discussion*, #WWPD4VETS
1:43- Market Garden look at the Allies

*Editor's Note: Not sure why I said the T-26 doesn't have 24" range- I thought it did!  Confused it with the T-60.  Apologies!


This is After F***in' Hours man.  Seriously, this one is rife with Sean "F Bomb" O'Hara chillin in the studio.  We counted 72- why don't you see if we were on or not?  We talk "Panthers", in the face of APDS.  We discuss a rough game that was brought up recently, adventures in printing, and loads of other junk!  Explicit Language.

Review: Battlefront's FW190F8 (AC010)

The Folke Wulf 190 is one of my favorite German planes of the war...and  Battlefront has added this great plane to Flames of War.  To have it in the game is icing on the cake.  The first thing that jumped out at me is that the FW190A8 (AC010) kit is not made with that slick grey plastic of the other plane kits.  This is a nice hunk of Resin (at least that it was it looks like)

Operation Market Garden: Allies

The Market Garden compilation is a great combination of many books and PDFs that have been floating around for three plus years.  It is great to have everything together in one compilation that takes into account the re-working of points and attributes since Version 3 of Flames of War was launched so many months ago.  I think that the compilation is very well done overall, with a ton of added mateiral from the original sources.  There is even more backround and description of the battles and I very much recommend these books to everyone for their FoW collection.  And now, on to the details!

Mathnalysis! British Armour VS Panthers

With all the buzz about the new fangled 17pdr APDS ammo and the increasing cries of "Down with Panthers, Up with Fireflies!", I began to wonder if all the intuition floating around was actually correct.

So before anyone just 'says' Panthers are dead vs the new Fireflies, shouldn't someone actually run the numbers?
I LOVE Bullets with Shoes!

KV-1S Company

I know Jon already posted these, but I am a completist and wanted to document them as well.  So this is mostly just a quick picture post!  As Jon mentioned, I bought these guys off him on a whim, but have needed some KVs for my reds for quite some time!

More Huey Slicks!

Not a whole lot more to say about these guys that I didn't already cover in my first post.  Both of these slicks are the "new" versions (in the green box, rather than the blue box) and were thus a bit easier to work with.  Now I have 3 Hueys and a Hog, enough to play the Huey Down scenario.

What did I get painted in 2012?

Like many other users on our forum, I kept close tabs on what I got painted for 2012!  I can happily say I feel very good about my productivity modeling-wise, all things considered.  I was also fortunate to play in lots of games, attend several conventions, record tons of podcasts, etc etc.  So, I'd say 2012 can go down as a successful hobby year for me!  And now, for your reading satisfaction, here is everything I completed!

Army Boxes: SS K.G. Peiper & US Cavalry Group

Hey guys!  This is the first in a series of posts detailing these new Army boxes from Battlefront.  Because we strive to make sure anything we review is fully painted, and these boxes come stuffed to the gills with models, I've decided to have this quick overview of both boxes.  Meanwhile I've sent the various bits and pieces to several reviewers so we can hear lots of opinions.  Obviously those reviews will be a little further down the road as they need to get them painted before we feature them here!

So without further ado, let's take a look at the US Cav box set!
