All these miniatures where painted with Vallejo Paints, if you are thinking of trying them get the flames of war pait sets, excellent paints and colours are spot on, highly reccomended.

This blog is being created to follow my return to 15mm WW2 gaming which started in the early 90's at Shrewsbury Wargaming club playing a game written by a club member, Barrie Lovell, who had a wargames company called Firebase Games. Barrie wrote an excelent set of rules called "Overlord". Over the years my copy dissapeared and the rights where sold to an American Company called Brookhurst Hobbies, the game is now very diffacult to get hold of from them but I was lucky enough to get a copy on Ebay which I am transcribing verbatim due to the condition into a word document so I can re prit it for personal use.

Miniature wise I am using Battlefront 15mm "Flames of War" because they are the best on the market for many reasons.

I was lucky enough to be able to support myself through Pro painting for a couple of years and can paint to a good standard so much of the blog will be pictures of my miniatures and terrain as the project develops.

Wish me luck.
