Hi to all, comrades!
After several years of fantazy and fantastic wargames, my interest turned to historical (and nearly of that) wargames.

So, here i'll be posting all my ideas and progress, and, as i hope, you opinion will help me in my new journey=)

First of all.
Yes, we playing FLAMES OF WAR.
Not, it is not in 1\100 scale!

Choosen scale is 1\72.
Not only because it's not so tiny)) But because my armies will be moustly convertions and some 3D-printed, and avaliable printer can't save some quality at 1\72 or 1\76 but have sone problems with lover scales.
Second reason why 1\72 - we hawe avaliable ZVEZDA miniatures (oh, yes, i am russian=D)what include many cheap and nicely detailed artillery and infantry miniatures.

So, thanks for reading this, and i hope my baaaad eanglish was readable=DDD

Your English is fine mate, more readable than a lot of people who actually speak English as a first language!

Interesting idea to do 1/72 FOW, I presume that you are doing WW2? How are you going to do basing for infantry and guns? Also what armies?

Hi, Ingtaer and thanks))

I basing units on 3mm plasticard used 4x6cm bases as medium, 4x4cm as small and 6x8cm for heawy guns.

Now i started "what if" british force in desert thened colors as gypotentical forces of some north Africa or Middle East dominion.
It based on 3rd edition "Blitzkrieg" british army lists.

Now i started with 3D printed A11 Matilda squadron



And homerule-addition - Vickers Medium tank Mk II "Tropical"



Also i allready have some 1\72 ZVEZDA and Airfix
Matilda II, Vickers mk vI tanks and some infantry\AT 2pdr guns

Nice stuff! Where did you get your 3d prints from, designed yourself?
Really like the colour scheme you have chosen for the armour and extra kudos for the Vickers mk2, love the weird tanks that the British designed between the wars.
