Mid War Brits vs Tigers

Mid War Brits for the Paths to Glory Petawawa tournament

Well, I have a new smartphone, and this is the first AAR using it instead of my video camera.   Phantom and I had a game to test out our lists.  I was running Africa Motor Company, so HQ with 2 attached Mortars, Motor Platoon with 2 ATR's 1 L Mortar, 4 x Vickers HMG, 3 x Recce Carriers with extra MG, 4 x 25lbr, 3 x Churchill, 2 x Churchill, 4 x 6lbr Portee and Hurricane IID

Cheers,

Paras, Tigers and Fights, Oh My!

This past week has been pretty busy with everyone scrambling to get a list or two painted for an upcoming tournament in Petawawa, Ontario. I had some down time from work, which is a rarity for me and I took it as an opportunity to paint some US Paratroops. I thought when I got into FoW a little over a year ago, I would be staying away from painting and modelling any type of infantry stands. I think it had something to do with not wanting to paint hundreds of individual boots, camo, weapons and get them all based while trying to make them not look like a rush job.

There are tons of blogs dedicated to 1944-45 US 101st and 82nd Airborne schemes and techniques, I found a few that looked half decent and managed to find a few color photos as well. After Band of Brothers was released some time ago, interest grew in the history of the 101st and particularly the 506th. After seeing the US, Canadian, and British cemeteries in the area surrounding Normandy in 2007, I had seen the landscape and ev…
