Fire and Fury America’s Wars

I think Fire and Fury is the finest set of miniatures rules ever written. It has elegantly simple mechanics, fun gameplay and set the standard for high-quality rules presentation.

Now the Fire and Fury people are at work on a version for America's other "horse and musket" wars: The Revolution, War of 1812, and Mexican War. You can find the playtest versions of Fire and Fury: Americas Wars here.

From Matakishi's Tea House comes a guide to modeling the French village of Carentan. From the author:

Carentan details the building of the Second World War French town featured in Band of Brothers for wargaming in 28mm.  It contains detailed build notes and many full colour photographs of the process. There is also a section explaining the quest to match the known historical facts with the reality of Carentan today including both period and modern photographs and an analysis of the fighting at the time.

Carentan is a riveting tale of historical research and a valuable modelling resource offered free by Matakishi's Tea House.

TerraGenesis has an article on making palm trees from toothpicks and scouring pads. They look pretty good, and would be just the thing for those Flames of War desert and pacific scenarios.
