FoW, Battle for the Ukraine, 7500 points total... GameSummit 2011

Ok so this one is a doozy. 28 pics plus video, but then again we ended up getting 7500 pts for the Battle in the Ukraine. Sit back, grab a brew, and enjoy the fruits of months of painting in this huge battle.


Pregame shot, Russian players await the german push.. BTW, click pic for close up of Brett's 'Bitch please' face. Perhaps he just found out the official soap of the GameSummit WFB tourny is... NONE!!







Dug in Russians in the farmlands above and below..

Better pic of the BA-10s near the fountain in the town square


Sideboard... 8 T-34s and 5 KV-1s


More Red Army vehicles (SU-85 and SU-122 assault guns).. are there just too many targets for the '88s and Tigers?


Truck Motor guys (they have a real funny russian name) EDIT: Razvedki is what they are called.. I love that they hang off the fenders with their PPsh's, 1920's gangland style!

GameSummit 2011, Friday Feb 18th "UKRAINE NOT WEAK!"

Communist Party Official building!




Well, another GameSummit is upon us, all the hard work of painting 2 FoW armies and terrain and so on has paid off.. Here are some shots of the FoW demo table that I'll be running with my 8th army Brits vs 21.Panzers, and the HUGE Ukraine table for tomorrow's massive 3000 pt per side Soviets v Germans. Not pictured: Beer... Beer is available at the Steve Yzerman Sportsplex.. HUZZAH!










Video below has all sorts of other shots of the event on the quiet night before the main days (Sat and Sunday) and of my terrible selection of beer..

Game Summit Prep Work

I offered to help Corey out again with some prep work he needed done. Last event I helped with painting some boards. This time he asked me to paint up a Fortress of Redemption. Its a decent chunk of plastic. Lots of nice details. I had to cut a few corners as I only got the piece a week ago and had FoW models to paint up as well...I think it turned out OK.





USSR Heavy KV-1S

Here are some newly finished KV-1S tanks supporting some infantry in there advance off my painting area.
