M8 Greyhounds and some Jeeps


I haven't posted anything in a few weeks, but I have been busy painting and have accumulated a backlog of units to post which I'll be catching up on. These here are 15mm FOW and consist of M8 Greyhounds and some Jeep's that constitute my recon elements for my American Tank Company.

I painted them up in a grimy, dirty and slightly damaged look to show them in full campaign mode which is how I prefer my vehicles to look. Painting Americans is pretty relaxing and fun compared to Germans which are demanding to do.

I have a friend who is pretty crazy about FOW while my feelings are it's a fun game as long as you don't try and view it as a simulation game and instead just view it as a game with a WWII background.

Painting 15mm isn't my favourite scale as I vastly prefer 28mm and even more so as my eyes get older, but it does have it's advantages like quicker to do and easier portability plus occupying less space. So, I'll continue to have 15mm projects mixed in with my 28mm ones.

Thanks for viewing!:-)

  5. Nice work, have you thought of the Two Fat Lardies I ain't been shot mum rules. I will be useing battle front basing and mostly their miniatures but useing the above rules as I'm not a fan of points driven gaming .

    1. Thank you Furphy. I do in fact have the Lardie rules and the Battlegroup rules, but trying to get my friends that play 15mm WWII to try a different rule set is the the problem. The people at that club are pretty dogmatic about their rules. Luckily, I have another WWII group, but that's for 28mm WWII.

  7. The campaign look is far more interesting that the 'factory fresh' approach. Lovely examples as usual.

  10. Excellent work, Christopher. They do look like they've been long in the field!

    I'd love to see a FoW AAR some day. I've never gotten to try these rules so I'm still curious.

    1. Thank you very much Monty! It's a fun game if you always remember that's just what it is.....a game that happens to use WWII as the background, because if your looking for simulation then you would be better off with IABSM or something like that.
