Beginning of my Guards Armoured Squadron.

Well peeps it's been a long time since I updated my blog and what better way to revive it with a post on a new beginning. Seeing how the boys at Legio Malaysia are all having so much fun with Legio's Flames of War, Operation Market Garden campaign. I decided to jump in and start a FoW army.

It was daunting at first as I didn't have a clue on how to go about it, I got myself Earth & Steel as recommended by Khairul and Jeff then onto Hell's Highway. I must admit that I'm not a big war fan, but the miniatures and hobbying aspect of it was perfect for me. I love tanks, infantry and I needed an army that I could spend a couple of hours of my week with. Nothing too time consuming like cleaning mould lines and such. Just plain old out of the box cleaning and washing. Plus they take up so little space as compared to the dreaded Air Cavalry Imperial Guard army that I started over 2 years ago.

Ordered a bunch of stuff off Maelstrom and I'm patiently waiting for them to get here. As for now thanks to Military Hobbies, I've gotten my grubby hands on a Sherman Armoured Platoon, Sherman ARV and a GERMAN HQ objective (Only because it looked so much better as compared to the other HQ Objectives)

So hopefully in the days to come I'll have this blog up and going again. Would be nice to have updates on the IG Air Cavalry too but that's wishful thinking. Till the next update. Huzzah!
