I finished painting this platoon of 15cm Nebelwerfers in September for Attack-X. I wasn't happy with how the sandbags looked and it took me another four months before I took them out of the case and painted them again. At long last I am finally pleased with their finished appearance. So, after a long delay, I present to you my Nebelwerfer platoon.

The other day I posted my 2014 year in review. In this post I will set some new goals for 2015. 2015 is already shaping up to be another busy year. Hopefully the increased work and home stability will lead to unprecedented hobby productivity. 2015 will be the year I eliminate my hobby backlog and achieve all of my painting projects. I'll play more games than ever. I'll paint 28mm models too. Well, one can dream... Here are my goals for 2015.

This year I am splitting my year in review into two parts. In the first part, I am going to review the year that was and review the goals I set at the beginning of the year. This was a very busy year for me personally and in the hobby. Check back after the break for a review of how I did with completing my 2014 goals.

A few months ago a friend asked me how I would paint colour modulation on some desert vehicles for the new Fate of a Nation expansion for Flames of War. I decided to do a quick test on an old Panther hull. This tutorial will show you step by step how I achieved a modulated colour effect for this desert colour. For this tutorial I have used Vallejo Model Air colours.

A few months back I posted about my challenge to complete my Panzer Lehr company for Attack-X in September. I finished that painting challenge 8 hours or so before I had to leave for the tournament. I am now planning a Panzergrenadier company to complete for Gottacon in Victoria February 27-29, 2015. I have three months before the tournament to finish 25 models and a display board.

This weekend I found a few spare minutes to finish some hedge rows for my Flames of War scenery. The hedges are made out of scrub pads, PVC foam board, sand, paint, and flock. They were easy to make and feel very durable so far. I used the excellent hedge making tutorial over at The Demo Gamers to build the hedges. Be sure to check out their blog for some great tutorials and ideas for demonstration games.
