I've started my new 15mm WW2 army for Flames of War. Even though some of the local players have decided to stop playing FoW, I still believe there is a lot of life left in this game. Even if they are correct, I seriously doubt that WW2 games in 15mm will go away any time soon.
Case in point; my friend Dale has decided to purchase the rulebook for the excellent game I Ain't Been Shot Mum. He asked me if I'd be willing to learn the game with him and I agreed. I've played the game before and discussed it in this earlier post. This game provides a bit more realism than Flames of War and there are times when I really enjoy the gritty details of a serious wargame.
So, we've setup a goal for each of us to paint up an army. I will build a US Glider Rifle Company and Dale will do a German PanzerGrenadier Company. I've purchased a box of the plastic US Infantry from The Plastic Soldier Company. They are great sculpts for the price. The only trick will be to figure out how to base them so that they will work for both game systems.
First task was to get the plastic figs off the spue and glue on the interchangeable arms and weapons. More info to come as I complete the project.
