We needed some more terrain for the tournament in Kelowna a few months ago. At the last minute, I built a set of trees for my winter table to contribute to the cause. In this post I’ll share some pictures of my new winter trees and discuss how I built them.

I recently finished painting some 6mm Israeli vehicles from GHQ. I painted these models to test out the 6mm scale for possible Flames of War Arab Israeli Wars games. In this blog post I will show some pictures of a painted Merkava IV, M113 Zelda, and (possibly) an AMX. I experimented with airbrushing on the 6mm models as well.

I recently made a winter wargames mat for my Flames of War terrain collection. In this post I will share some pictures of it, my thoughts on the construction process, and some links to useful tutorials to build your own mat. This mat was built with latex caulk on canvas backing.

The new Six Month Mountain Reduction Painting Challenge is here. After some thinking, I have decided to join the challenge again this year. The 6MMRPC is a challenge to reduce your painting backlog by painting, posting, and not purchasing new models! In this post I will compile a list of my goals for the challenge.

One of my favourite things about Flames of War is the terrain. Unlike some other games, in Flames of War you frequently move through terrain and use it to benefit yourself and hamper your opponent. The layout of a table can have a large effect on the outcome of a game. A skilled player can effectively use terrain to help them on either attack or defense. In this post I will share some of my ramblings on what I think makes an effective and well laid out table for tournament games.
