This Is Where the Fish Lives






I posted this in the Showcase forum but figured it might get a little more attention here. This is what I have complete for my Flames of War mid war American force. This has been a labor of love for me and I'm quite proud of how much I've managed to get done in a relatively short amount of time (I started this army in September). I still have more to do, such as a battery of six M7 Priests, another armored infantry platoon, and some more M3 Lees.

I used a variety of paints for the olive drab throughout this project. Most of it was done using Tamiya Olive Drab (XF-62) and then highlighted with a mix of XF-62 and XF-60 Dark Yellow. I also used Mr Paint Olive Drab FS34087 (MRP-234) for the Lees and Vallejo Model Color Brown Violet (70.887) for the Shermans. I like the mix of colors since it gives a little variation to the army. Comments and criticism welcome as always!

You should be proud of that. That's a very nice and impressive collection.

Where's Patton though?

Can't have the Americans in North Africa without Patton.

I've still got 6 pots of the old GW Catachan Green from my Imperial Guard days, which is very similar to Tamiya Olive Drab, so I may get some Americans myself though.

I'm doing a North Africa project myself: Afrika Korps for an Operation Crusader scenario, so it's always good to see more people do North Africa.

Nice FoW is probably my favorite TT game unfortunately it's dead around my area. Bolt Action too like someone flipped a light switch, and *poof* it's gone.

Yeah. i really liked FoW but the 4th ed kind of killed it in my area as well. Likely when the Late War books start coming out we will get more interest again. I hope.
