As we remember...

So, a little Veteran's Day/Armistice Day special for you, courtesy of Memoir '44.

The miniatures are not meant to be in scale with each other, as they are only representative of units, not individual tanks/infantry.

Here you see a set of Pacific Theatre theme figures. 

Now to the Western Front...

US Marines and Aussies in the forest.

A unit of Americans holding a town.

Memoir is obviously a hex based game.  We decided to create actual terrain hexes, as it made a huge difference in game play.  Its far easier to recognize what kind of terrain situations you are dealing with, and for those who have seen the battle reports, you know it make s huge cinematic difference as well.

More US figures, with Mediterranean Theater tossed in...

I have had all kinds of fun painting the various units in these specialized color scheme.  It's a training exercise for further forays into historical miniatures! :-)

I also enjoyed painting the cavalry units, as well as the early war French.  We have also painted them as Polish and Italian units, as you see by the ruined church.

As I close here, I want to say thanks to all the vets out there.  They sacrifice so that I can paint little pieces of plastic, resin, and metal.  My gratitude forever.


  1. Nice, I would love to see you with some larger miniatures like Flames of War.

    1. Yes, I have been getting more and more tempted... plus, many people I know want me to play!

    2. FOW miniatures are mainly the exact same size as M44. I'd love to see what you could possibly do with some 1:35 tanks and soldiers.

    3. The FOW minis were tempting :-) We have managed to scrounge up some 1/72nd scale guys, which you will see me posting as we get closer to Adepticon. More Aussies, Japanese, US marines, Germans and so on. They will be very cool!

      I will definitely be trying FOW and Bolt Action minis next year. There is such a huge variety of vehicles and troops available with FOW... it's already very exciting!
