The Battle of Ponyri

Defeat in Detail: The Battle of Ponyri 
This was a battle I played against Søren Petersen as a practice match for the Polar Bear Tournament. The tournament had an 81-point limitation and was Eastern Front themed. I have heard some players complain that they don’t like playing smaller battles, but for a tournament 81 points has advantages, especially concerning the speed of battles. I for one enjoy mixing the points up and selecting armies to points constrains. For this number of points, it is obvious that you cannot have everything you want so I start by selecting what I really want.

Waikato Wars 2020
WaikatoWars is in its 20th consecutive year of hosting an Early War Flames of War competition.  Over the years it has morphed through name changes from Rallypoint to BFNZEWGT and now to WaikatoWars.

This year it was once again held in the Pirongia School Hall, with it’s marvelous cooling system, as in New Zealand 14-15 February is high summer.

Upgrading from Fortress Europe to D-Day: British
With the D-Day: British book due out shortly, I thought I’d take a quick look back at my original painting plan and then have a quick review of what the next few months might hold for me.

Quick spoiler for those of you not following us on Instagram... There might be quite a few Churchills coming up!

Time to Get a Chally… Or Three

Time to Get a Chally… Or Three
My current British army is based around a Chieftain squadron with a full 14 uparmoured Stillbrew Chieftains, some Swingfire missiles, a couple of Scorpions, a platoon of infantry and a little support. It’s a good little force, and I’m quite happy with its performance. However, my Chieftains have been usurped as the biggest tanks on the battlefield! The Challenger is even bigger!

I know it’s a weird reason to want a new tank, but really any reason will do, and I do want them. At present I’m not looking to totally replace my Chieftains, but I’m quite excited about the idea of adding a troop of three Challengers to my force.

Aaron’s Oil War British: Part 1
The release of the new British book for World War III set my brain whirring as to a unique theme for a miniature of HRM’s finest. I quickly decided that the obvious standby of the black and green camouflage scheme, whilst iconic and well suited to our notional 1985 conflict, was a little too pedestrian for my tastes. With the standard scheme discarded I started to tax my memory (and images on the internet) for a look that was still ‘British’ but that would tick the box for being a bit unique.
