Middle School Historical Miniatures Modeling and Gaming as an Enrichment Class

Historical Miniatures Modeling and Gaming as an Enrichment Class
Thirteen years ago I moved to Effingham County, Georgia and began teaching at Effingham County Middle School. I approached my Principal then to ask if I could start a Historical Miniatures Club as an after school extra-curricular activity. I explained students would learn to assemble and paint World War II miniatures and then use the Flames of War rules to play games against each other on terrain tables he said to go ahead and get it started.

Contrast on Flames Of War
The release of Games Workshop’s ‘Contrast’ paint range has set the tabletop wargaming and miniature painting communities alight with the possibilities that this product offers.We here at BFHQ are just as susceptible to buying a ticket to ride on the hype train as anyone else, so we got hold of some ‘Contrast’ to test it on some of our excellent plastic infantry figures. As with everything in this hobby, our opinion is divided; with some finding the outcome of using Contrast paint on infantry as a fair trade on time versus result, some preferring a more traditional style, and others investigating ideas for speed painting your Landseers, Tommies, GIs and Ivans.

Role-Playing, and is featured as a very family friendly event that serves as the primary fundraiser for the HAWK’s.

Casey's Step-By-Step Winter Wash Painting Guide
Casey has come up with a complete step-by-step guide for how to copy his Winter Wash effect - it may not be for the faint hearted, but it is really hard to argue with how good the finished model looks.

Planning For Fall-In: Part 3 - Oil War
The core of the Iranian armor in the list are Chieftains, so I decided to start with them. Page 101 in the Oil War book has a simple painting guide for Iranian vehicles. In it, they suggest using Vallejo Green Grey. In this article I'll go through what paints I use and a step by step.

Lessons From The Front: 4th Edition
Last Updated 10 October 2019
A new rules set always results in questions about how the finer points of the game should work so Lessons From The Front is the place to go to find answers to some of the harder questions.

These are living documents that we will update as often as possible but please bear in mind that whilst we listen to feedback in the forums (and other places) we need to take a considered approach before implementing any changes.
