So I just started playing Flames of War, and I have to say the game is fun, and I really like it, but I am not a huge historical buff. Or at least I don't really care if the armies stay true to history.

So, here is my thought. As I was assembling the German forces, I was thinking, I am going to paint these guys up like Hydra troops, but then I saw this video where this guy was talking about making his the Nacht Wulfen aka Night Wolves. The premise behind the Night Wolves is that they are the relic hunters for Hitler. They are the ones that Hitler dumps all of the money and research into. These guys have the best of everything the 3rd Reich can supply them.

I want to do something similar, although not exactly. But i need to come up with a name for this would be new army that will eventually rise up and overthrow Hitler in a military coup. At the same time, I imagine the allies would be making there own crack counter division that its sole purpose is to stop these guys at all costs.

So, any suggestions on some cool names for both the good and bad guys?

So, I have come up with names for the Good Guy Armies and Bad Guy armies.

The Bad guys, I am thinking Stahl Drachen (Steel Dragons). These guys have been stealing and hording all the tech and scientist they can find for their own nefarious means. They are not above attacking Nazis and even bringing Hitler down and replaced by their own leader. They are constantly recruiting other regiments and divisions of the German army to their side. The ruthlessness is boundless and unlike the rest of the German army, they aren't lead by the incompetent Hitler.

the Good Guys. "Ryans Renegades" Lead by the legendary tank commander Colonel Charles Edward Ryan. They have been assembled by top Brass to seek out and destroy the Stahl Drachen forces where ever they might be before they come to power in Germany and change the dynamics of the war.

What do you think of those two ideas?

Looks good, I saw some of your little tanks all ready. Look pretty easy to paint at that scale.

Well last night was Ryans Renegades first encounter with the vicious Stahl Drachen. The Renegades where caught by surprise in an almost open terrain. With a few clumps of woods for cover. The Stahl Drachen lived up to their namesake and cut through the Renegades with ease.

What was left of the Renegades pulled back and regrouped. After repairs rearmament and recon. Colonel Ryan lead the Renegades himself learning that the Stahl Drachen where heading to a nearby bridge, the only place to safely cross a large creek swollen by torrential downpours.

This time the Stahl Drachen didn't fair as well. While they fought bravely, the Renegades managed to stop them from gaining ground. However, the Stahl Drachen also held their side of the river as well, lead to a tactical draw. But now the Stahl Drachen know there is a force out there that isn't a push over for them.
