“ I wouldn't be seen dead playing Flames of War”

Really, I thought that photograph looks just like the usual line up and shoot formation often seen in FoW?

Maybe I should take it up now I've found the perfect formation  lol

You did a great job on the multi-colored diagonal striped pattern.  Your lines are sharp and well defined despite the changes in surfaces.  Please tell me how you did this.  Thank you.

Many thanks for the kind words on the Caunter Scheme 👍

No secrets I'm afraid I just painted it by hand, I did a tutorial a long time ago, link below, which maybe of some use,

Thank you very much... big help and much appreciated.  Whether I can pull it off is not known, but it's nice to start something knowing that it has been done well by someone.  I really link know that you did it by hand... and seeing your approach will help a lot.  Thanks again.

Looking very fine indeed, vehicles lloking extra nie.

Anyone in the know and reading this thread, what time was the khaki drill used in the early war issued from? Got a bunch of free 8th army sprues but thinking they might do for vbcw, or am i better of just keeping them for ww2?

Really wonderful work and quite impressive.

Well done Ken and quite right - go large or go home. Talk is cheap but you are definitely walking the walk.

No AA or air-support? There's always a gap in even your collections I suspect.

Inspirational stuff. I have built some early war elements for a Jock Column but even in my 20mm scale I can't touch your Western Desert Steam-Roller.

Wow, this post seems to have taken off again after a year sitting dormant, so thanks for all the new kind comments on this old post

Wow. Useful to see implementation of that light blue/desert camouflage 

There are lots of different colours used in the collection from the original Caunter colours to various shades of light blue grey to represent my interpretation of the affect the sun had on the Silver Grey part of the original scheme.

I have some air support but that isn't shown here, as for AA it just hasn't come up in our games yet, we are mid Op Compass so a pointless mounted Bren was probably your lot  :)

The Big Game Podcast is exactly what we do  lol

Really wonderful work and quite impressive.

My dog ate my (gifted) FOW book, it was that bad he was sick  :D
