From Jake - 20mm WWII American Infantry (184 Points)

We always play a large battle at the end of the year and make it a project for our group. So this year it was Normandy late 1944 in 20mm. I had to paint over 60 Americans from AB miniatures mixed with Blitz. I knew it was going to be tough to paint them all in the painting challenge and be ready in time for the game. So I painted 24 before and finished 46 of them in the painting challenge making 184 points.

Here they are just after the battle.
Yesterday we played a great game of Battlegroup Overlord. Mike and me played the 1st US Infantry division while Rob van S joined us with his excellent Brits. On the opposite site were Mark, Rob P and Sam with some Germans and a lot of PANZERS! We also had some support if you can call it that (Shermans, Stuarts and Greyhounds).

Below are some pictures of my troops in action (although they saw little of it because it became a real tank battle).

  4. Nice looking bunch of dogfaces. AB Miniatures - you certainly chose the gold standard to work with. I wish there were more photos to show off your fine brushwork. The buildings on that table are quite fine as well.

  8. Great brushwork! Nice action shots too, looks like a great game! They must have defied the fresh painted ill luck as well, as you didn't mention it! ;)

  9. AB figures are so beautiful, truly. You did them justice, and those are some great shots of the gaming table to boot!
