Forged in Battle Panzer 4 G 15mm for Flames of War

The Panzer 4 was the workhorse of the German armoured forces, serving from the outbreak of war to the fall of the Reich, upgunned and uparmoured throughout the war they could be seen on every front of the war and at all times.
Today we are taking a look at a "Late War" panzer 4 G with the long barrelled 75mm and Schurtzen.


 It comes in a nice padded blister box, it is a G, but could really be used as any of the later models, without too many complaints.
 its cast in resin except a metal main gun barrel and hull mg, barely any flash on the model at all, nice crisp clean detail.

and it paints up lovely! It is a solid model, it took me dropping it from standing height without breaking any of the resin.  Like all of the Forged in Battle range it is moulded onto its base, you could dremel it off, but I am not too concerned with that.well worth a look at to fill out your panzer ranks.

Playing against Oliva, I only get to use the Imperials due to her insistence that they are the bad guys and she will not use them.  We only play with what we have, but we have 100pt lists each.  This list I have tried in battle against other people as well, and it does rather well for itself and I enjoy playing it.
So lets see whats in it.....

X-Wing 100 points Rebel List

As you may know my regular Xwing gaming opponent is my daughter Olivia, and she is becoming rather a good player.  She only plays rebels, she does not want to be the bad guys, and she has worked her own list out to use as well.  In reality its actually rather a good solid list as well! so I thought I would share it and how she uses it.....

Sharing your Gaming hobby with your family

Gaming with your family.... a dream of all us nerds right? or wrong? some people say they would not want them involved with their hobby as it is an escape.  Myself I think the opposite!

I love having my family involved in my hobby, most of my gaming these days is in fact with my daughter, and she beats me fairly often.
So.... how did I get her into gaming?
