Panzergrenadiers for Gottacon

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.

Hedge rows

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.

Panzer IV Platoon #2

This platoon is another one of those platoons that seemed to drag on forever. I spent a lot of time in March preparing the models and getting the airbrushing and details finished. Then I used them in a game. All progress stalled there. It took me another six months to "unbog" and add the line highlights, chipping and oil streaking and grime. One day I will master the skill of starting one project and finishing it before starting another... Read on for more pictures of the completed panzers. The models are 15mm Panzer IVs from Plastic Soldier Company.

AAR: Attack-X Flames of War Tournament

Last weekend I attended the Flames of War tournament at Attack-X. Attack-X is a small gaming convention in Kamloops, BC and ran from September 12th to 14th, 2014. The Flames of War tournament was a 1650 point late war tournament. I played a Panzer Lehr list from Panzers to the Meuse. In this blog post I'll share a recap and some pictures of each game .

I've almost finished my painting challenge of completing my Panzer to the Meuse list for Attack-X tomorrow. I just thought I'd put a quick post up with some pictures of the completed Pumas. I'll show some pictures of the models in this post and discuss their role in my list.

Showcase: Panzergrenadier Platoon

15mm infantry are a lot of work to paint. Originally, I had aimed to paint this platoon quickly as a "speed painted" platoon to just have some infantry to put on the table. This speed platoon ended up taking me about 4 months to finish and countless hours to paint all of the details. German infantry suffers from having a huge amount of webbing and gear on them that takes a long time to finish. The infantry models are Battlefront Open Fire Grenadiers. The Sd.Kfz 250 half-tracks are from an unknown manufacturer.

6 Month Mountain Reduction Painting Challenge

Chris' Miniature Woes recently started a six month challenge to reduce your stash of unpainted miniatures. I have joined the challenge and over the next six months I will try to reduce my own collection of unpainted models. My focus will be on drastically reducing the Flames of War models that have built in to a bit of a backlog over the last two years. Read on for some pictures of my lead mountain, a painting chart of the models I have to paint, and the rules for the challenge.

Panzer (IV J) Commander

I haven't actually played the Panzer Commander PC game. In this blog post I will show some pictures of my Panzer IV Company Commander and Second in Command for my Panzer Lehr Panzer Division. The tanks themselves are 15mm Plastic Soldier Company Panzer IVs. The tank commanders are plastic Battlefront models. I painted these models in hard edge camouflage to match my other Panzer IVs. With these models complete, I am one big step closer to completing my Panzer Lehr list for Attack-X in a week and a half.
