Flames of War Panzerkompanie

I have, more or less, finished up my Tunisia/Italy Panzerkompanie for Flames of War. This project started off as a few tanks to support my Fallschirmjagers. The Plastic Soldier Company Panzer IV kits are so I nice I have to keep buying them and building them.

First up is the Company Commander in PzIV G (the long barrel) and the 2ic in a PzIV F1.

Next we have the PzIV G platoon. This is a full platoon of five tanks. These guys are the long range anti-tank punch of the company.

The second platoon can be seen in a previous post. The second platoon are PzIV F1 with the short gun. These tanks are shorter range and lower AT than the G's but they have the ability to fire direct fire smoke as well as bombardments.

Finally we have the entire 1500 point company of 12 tanks. I have a few more tanks to build and paint so I will have a few other options. Once the PSC PzIII kit is out I will add a few of them for even more options. There are many more tanks to come.

More Union for Black Powder

I just finished another Union regiment for Black Powder. These are Sash and Saber figures. I have not decided what unit this will be and I don''t have any more flags. This puts the Union collection over 200 figures and 2 complete brigades. I think I am done painting Union for a while.

Gamers Garage Sale

Today was Imperial Outpost's Gamers Garage Sale. This is a fun event where you can rent a table and sell off your old game stuff. Last year I made a few hundred dollars and I hoped to do as well this year. It was not to be. I sold a few things but spent more than I made. Here are a few pictures of the setup.

Here are the items I acquired. First we have some trees that I painted for a friend many years ago.

Here we have a few Germans tanks for Flames of War. I understand that you cannot play Germans without playing Tigers.

This is a nice little Basilisk. It will make a nice addition to the Catachan army.

Everyone needs a Baneblade that is why I bought another one!

Last we have a selection of Osprey books on the Napoleonic Wars. One is an out of print book I have been trying to find on eBay.

It was a great day of buying and selling. I can't wait for the next one!
