Today I will show you how to quickly and cheaply make fields for your tables. This method can be used for any scale of game. In this case, I built my fields for 15mm games but I think they would look just fine in 28mm scale games too. This project allows you to cheaply build lots of fields for your tables. I built 12 or so fields for about $4 worth of supplies.

After becoming interest in the X-Wing miniatures game I decided to try making a cheap and quick gaming mat to play on. This gaming mat cost me $8 in supplies and took me 40 minutes to make. In this tutorial I will show you step by step pictures for making your own mat. I used an airbrush for this tutorial but you could probably do a similar mat using spray cans. This mat does not look quite as polished as the professionally printed vinyl mats but is a cheap alternative for home games or if you are making many mats for a tournament or store event. Read on for some pictures of the finished mat and a step-by-step tutorial on how to make your own.

I recently finished a set of rivers for my Flames of War table. I made the rivers out of 1/8” medium density fibreboard, glue, sand, rocks, and a bit of balsa wood. The rivers will add some variety to my Flames of War tables.

This blog post will review the new plastic Panzergrenadier box set by Battlefront for Flames of War (GBX76). The box set contains enough infantry for seven stands of Panzergrenadiers, four Sd.Kfz 251/1D half-tracks, four crew sprues, and a set of decals. Each component is rated out of five. Models were painted using an airbrush, acrylic and oil paints, and colour modulation.

I painted a Hs129 for one of the guys I regularly play against. For this model, he also wanted me to magnetize the two gun options to make them interchangeable. After delivery, he used it against me in a game and it was extremely effective. In this post I'll share some pictures, explain how I magnetized it, and discuss it's uses in Flames of War.

This blog post will review the KR Multicase Kaiser 1 bag and discuss the appropriate tray sizes for different Flames of War models. KR Multicase doesn’t currently have custom cut foam for Flames of War models but the standard tray sizes fit most models I have found so far with a little improvisation. The KR Multicase Kaiser bag is a robust bag with space for your gaming supplies.
