  1. I've compiled an updated painting guide for Israeli, Egyptian, Syrian, and even Jordanian vehicles using some of the better model-building paint lines which I'm using as the basis for all of my Fate of a Nation vehicles. Check it out if you're interested! https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/06/painting-guide-for-fate-of-nation.html
  2. Howdy all! With the new Fate of a Nation dropping, a lot of people have asked what equipment was available in 1967 vs. 1973. As a contributing writer for the project, I'd tried to put a lot of these details in the flavor text for the units, but there were a few issues. First and foremost, FoaN is a single game - we didn't want to create a hard division between the time periods. It is also points compatible with 'Nam (IDF vs. NVA anyone???), so the goal was to create as streamlined an experience as possible. Second, details of some of the units are a bit sketchy and several references contradict each other - do deep digging is often required and even then may not yield 100% differentiation. Finally, there were many space and layout considerations that resulted in some text needing abridgment in the final product. That being said, I've been going back through my notes and updating them to create a series of tables showing what was used in the 1967 and 1973 wars respectively. These are somewhat living documents, and I'll be updating them as I go along and get better data. However, here are some links to the first pass versions: Israel: http://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/06/fate-of-nation-1967-1973-or-both.html Egypt: http://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/06/fate-of-nation-1967-1973-or-both_24.html Syria: http://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/06/fate-of-nation-1967-1973-or-both-syrian.html Jordan: http://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/06/fate-of-nation-1967-1973-or-both_73.html

    Thinking about taking the plunge...

    Thanks all - much appreciated.

    Thinking about taking the plunge...

    I read through that... Didn't seem to be enough to actually play the game... 40K is more streamlined these days, but it's still over 100 pages... I'd assumed that Sigmar had an equivalent as I'd seen something about a 96 page book somewhere... Unless all the actual rules on how to play are in the lists and faction books...

    Thinking about taking the plunge...

    What's the easiest way to get ahold of the main game rules at this point?
  6. I played a little original Warhammer back in the day, but was never impressed with Sigmar... largely because I was a Bretonnian and undead fan, and loved the massed ranks... That being said, I went by the new Warhammer store in Hillsboro today and saw some of the new undead releases for Sigmar, and I'll be danged if they don't look pretty good... Almost good enough to make me want to dip my toe back in... For someone wanting to get in starting with the death armies - thoughts? I sort of liked the Skeletons starter set and the Malignants starter set...

    Team Yankee - STRIPES! and American Forces

    Been madly painting, but with the Firestorm coming up again I'll be bringing them out... in whatever state they're in. :D (Check out the build log for the pretty much done T-72s)

    Team Yankee - STRIPES! and American Forces

    I'm likely going a similar route - though I'm adding LAV as anti-BMP spam... :D

    T-72s are DONE... pretty much... http://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/02/east-german-t-72-company-done.html
  14. In anticipation of the upcoming Fate of a Nation release for Team Yankee / Flames of War, I've been planning out my armies and looking for additional good references to get them all painted up and ready to go. AK Interactive has released a book covering the Middle East Wars from 1948 to 1973, and it is a rare gem. Packed with color photos and illustrations throughout, the book covers the major conflicts in the region in good detail. https://miniordnancerev.blogspot.com/2018/02/book-review-ak-interactives-middle-east.html
