Flames of War 'Doodlebugs'


The completed objective marker from the Flames of War 'Open Fire' starter set

Thanks to the efforts of one of my regular readers, Mike Whitaker, I now own not one but three of the above 15mm scale models; together with the launching ramps. This is really handy as I have in mind a V1 chasing game for use with Axis and Allies: Angels 20 and so ideally needed three of them. I plan to mount these on some flying bases give them the appropriate paint job and so they will be going on to the painting tray along side the Bf 109s currently awaiting their tropical colour scheme.

Many thanks for organising this Mike, much appreciated.


The real thing - I like the camouflage scheme applied to the launching rail.

Brilliant camouflage! Really prevents it blending in with the background :O)

Hi Chris,

Very subtle and understated! The V1 scheme was quite effective though.

All the best,
