Mattman's Painted US

Postby Mattman154 » Sun Apr 08, 2012 1:29 am

Hello,
I recently started up Flames of War again with the release of V3, and the first thing I wanted to paint was the platoon I'm most fond of, my artillery. (And some Shermans I painted before this apparently)

I work with a co-worker who as an amazing Bocage table, but only allows painted minis on it. This has provided me enough motivation to get my Rifle Company in to gear and get done! Here's the first items I have finished. I welcome any comments or criticisms you have to give!

And now for the Shermans!

Very nice. The only negative comment is, it looks like you have the light source to close. It makes the minis shine. What rife company you going to play?

I am making a 1,000 point US Rifle Company from the Forces book.

I agree my light source is a bit close, but the lighting in this place sucks and I don't have a lightbox.

Decided to color in the tubing.

You have a great looking force. I bet it looks great when using them on the table.

Have you ever played with them before, and how was the game?
