Battlefront Panzer IVs in plastic

I'm away on vacation at the moment but before leaving I finished 7 panzer IVs for a commission. These models are Battlefront's new plastic Panzer IV Hs. Models are painted with colour modulation and include the new plastic tank commanders. This blog post will include some pictures of the tanks and a discussion on the new plastic models.

Pirate Ork Gretchin

Yes, you read the title right. I have painted my annual 28mm Games Workshop throwback figure. The other day I was painting when I had some spare time and decided to paint the last little bit of this poor little Gretchin. In this post I'll show some pictures of the finished model and share a few thoughts on painting diversity and scale.

Autumn Deciduous Trees

We needed some more terrain for the tournament in Kelowna a few months ago. At the last minute, I built a set of trees for my winter table to contribute to the cause. In this post I’ll share some pictures of my new winter trees and discuss how I built them.

Diorama: Plastic Soldier Company Panzer 38t

I've painted a small diorama with a Panzer 38t. This diorama is for an entry in a painting contest in the fall. The model is a 15mm Plastic Soldier Company German Panzer 38t. The model is set on a winter base. In this blog post I will share some information about how I painted the model and built the display base as well as discussing the Plastic Soldier Company kit.

6mm GHQ Israeli Vehicles

I recently finished painting some 6mm Israeli vehicles from GHQ. I painted these models to test out the 6mm scale for possible Flames of War Arab Israeli Wars games. In this blog post I will show some pictures of a painted Merkava IV, M113 Zelda, and (possibly) an AMX. I experimented with airbrushing on the 6mm models as well.

Winter Caulk Wargaming Mat for Flames of War

I recently made a winter wargames mat for my Flames of War terrain collection. In this post I will share some pictures of it, my thoughts on the construction process, and some links to useful tutorials to build your own mat. This mat was built with latex caulk on canvas backing.

Six Month Mountain Reduction Painting Challenge Part 2

The new Six Month Mountain Reduction Painting Challenge is here. After some thinking, I have decided to join the challenge again this year. The 6MMRPC is a challenge to reduce your painting backlog by painting, posting, and not purchasing new models! In this post I will compile a list of my goals for the challenge.

Discussion: Flames of War terrain

One of my favourite things about Flames of War is the terrain. Unlike some other games, in Flames of War you frequently move through terrain and use it to benefit yourself and hamper your opponent. The layout of a table can have a large effect on the outcome of a game. A skilled player can effectively use terrain to help them on either attack or defense. In this post I will share some of my ramblings on what I think makes an effective and well laid out table for tournament games.
