Possible FoW Lists

Ok, with the new ebay purchases on the way I've been making up some lists on easyarmy that will take advantage of these new models.  

Possible MW Italian Tanks

Ebay Bonanza (or I guess I am playing Early War)

So after a flurry of bidding on Ebay I picked up for early war 12 French Somua Tanks, 6 Matilda senior infantry tanks, 6 Honey Stuarts, 13 Italian M14/41s, a commonwealth infantry squad, and 11 SAS jeeps with dismounted stands.  For late war I got 4 M10 Achilles tank destroyers. I missed a few things since it took me awhile to get home from work but by far the worst, was 15 Panhard AMD armoured cars which went in 3 lots for a grand total of $19.00 an absolute steal of a deal. 

I was originally planning on getting them for a French Reconnisance Squadron and then only trying to get 4 of the Somuas to act as support.  But after missing them I consoled myself by buying everything that was a good deal regardless of whether I have plans to use it.  13 Italian tanks? what am I going to do with those?  I guess I am going desert early war....

Anyways it was a fun hour of bidding and I am not disappointed with anything I got, just sad I missed those Panhards.  Stay tuned for pictures of them all when they arrive.

New Games in my Sights

I thought I would do a quick post about possible new games I would like to get into.  I'm not going to go into much depth but hopefully writing something down will help me consolidate my own opinion.

1) Leviathans

Flying battleships at the turn of the 20th Century, an interesting but simple rules system, pre-painted models.  What is not awesome about that?  After a long wait and many production problems the game is finally being released.  For me this is a pretty much sure buy.

2) Sedition Wars: Battle for Alabaster

Coming from Studio McVey and Cool or Mini or Not this looks like an amazing new game and an amazing deal on Kickstart.  Sci-Fi horror is not my favourite genre but I do really like the idea of Kickstart and this might be a deal that is too good to pass up.


Beer and pretzels gaming in the Dark Ages.  Not a huge investment and a new period for me.

4)  Malifaux

I really like the card playing mechanic.  Not a huge investment for a small team but apparently the rules are now spread across multiple books.  Also not the hugest fan of the setting or the models.

5) Dust Warfare

A Weird World War 2 setting.  It appears to be a well supported game and some of the walkers are the coolest models I've seen in a while.  Probably not going to get into this though since it looks like a bigger investment and treads on Flames of War and Warhammer 40k territory.

6) Axis and Allies: Angels 20

A simple air combat game.  Nice miniatures and a small investment, with the added bonus of being the right scale to use the aircraft in FoW.

A possible new Flames of War project. 21st Panzer Division on Normandy

Dark Elf Characters and Warmachines

I have finished (except for touching up the bases and some freehand) some heroes a chariot and two bolt throwers for my dark elf army.  I also purchased some Dark Eldar razorwing flocks to use as harpies.   I really need to start basing the rank and file but it does not interest me right now.

Various Heroes using Witch Elf and Executioner command blisters, and an Assasin.

Sorceress with Sacrificial Dagger and one with Staff.
