Team Yankee AAR – Soviet vs West Germans

Attacking the airfield

To reduce NATO air superiority, Mayor Solts T64 company was ordered to attack an air base around the outskirts of Bremen. The airfield then should be used as a forward operaition post and supply line for troops advancing further west.
Solts company spearheadet deep into anemy territory to get as close as possible to the air base to start the attack. The company was dividet into two parts to attack from both sides of the runway.
Solt uses his binoculars to scaned the surrounding for enem tanks. Operation command informed him that the West Germans deployed Leopard 2 tanks and jaguar tank destroyers near the base, a threat he should not underestimate.
“Comrades, I see one of the big tanks near that building ahead of us. Tanks and tank hunters are main targets for now. Everbody, attack!”
With a lout roaring the T64 advanced forward, followed by their AA support while the BMP scout sections prepare to unleash their ATGMs.

[Review] Butlers Printed Models – Spandrel ATGM/BRDM 2

I always look for little or less known companies and compare their work to that of the big ones. It happens quite often that such smaller brand impress me with the miniatures they make.

But I like the somehow odd look of these beasts so I included one in my Panzergrenadier list.

By Fire and Sword – Swedish skirmish force

A friend of mine started painting a swedish skirmish force for By Fire and Sword, but never finished it. Due to lack of time he didn’t finish or played it and sold me the whole deal.

If I really hate something about painting miniatures then it’s horses. One horse per army, well thats ok but a whole cavalry unit? Nope. Horses, especially 15mm ones are my painting nemesis. I had never started By Fire and Sword (BFaS from now on) in the first place because of the huge amount of horses to paint. I like the swedish and the polish armies a lot so there are always horses. Lucky for me, my friend started his paintjob with the horses. So no horses to paint for me at all.
