Flames of War - Son Bridge - After Action Report

Today we played the "Son Bridge", Flames of War game that we've had planned for a few weeks now.

This took place at the Sanctuary Gaming Centre in Sutton-in-Ashfield and we had 6 players on a 12ft x 4ft table with 4,500 points of British, 4,500 points of German and 2,600 points of US airborne.

The road XXX Corps would have to advance down from Eindhoven. Son in the forground.
The US troops started dug in around the Son Bridge, The paratroopers were on the north side of the river and the Glider Troops on the south side. They faced off against a German force of the 107th Panzer Brigade, consisting mainly of Panthers.

Son Bridge, the calm before the storm.

Wars of the Roses

So, that's one current project mentioned and now complete. The Son Bridge game is tomorrow!

In the mean time I've been busy with my next project: Wars of the Roses. I've jumped on the band wagon with the Perry War of the Roses Plastics, and I'm really glad I did. These are by far the nicest plastic soldiers I have ever worked with! The detail is gobsmacking!

With War of the Roses you have two choices really Yorkist or Lancastrians.  Being from a Yorkshire family I couldn't resist choosing the Yorkist side. Looking through the possible forces within that I decided on a force for Edward IV.

Kings of War Elf Army - Complete

Here is the now complete Elf Army in all it's glory. I have just 2 models left to paint, but they will have to wait as I'm now on to other projects.

After a little break...

3 1/2 months since the last blog post... oops! Sorry!

I guess I got out of the habit of posting for some reason. I'm not entirely sure what, but suffice to say I did continue to Wargame, model, take photos and post them on Facebook, just not on here! So time to make up for the long break with a summary of what happened in that long period of silence.

First up was the large Kings of War game we ran at the Hammerhead show near Newark. This was 14ft by 6ft and had the same models as seen at the Vapnartak show, however this time we had the addition of large force of Twilight Kin and even more of my goody-two-shoes Elves.
