Afrika Korp Matchbox tanks

Posted on May 24th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

Terry’s crawlspace yielded up some lovely old Matchbox 1/76-scale kits. The Panzer 3 may have been my first solo model, although I recall my dad buying me an Airfix Fokker triplane which I glue-ily built and displayed until it fell into the laundry ham…

Happy Painting Week!

Posted on May 23rd, 2015 under , , . Posted by

   All right, we’re off! Before we really get rolling, I want to show you the project table real quick…

We put everything we are hoping to paint on one half of the gaming table.

Yeah, it’s a little ambitious.The small totes are things we don’t really think we’ll get to, but they are on the list just in case. As you can see, most of what is loose is black or white- meaning it’s assembled, primed, and ready to go.

   Over on the Painting Board, I have added a special column for points completed during Painting Week, called PW ’15. At the end of the week they will simply get totaled into the other completed columns, but I wanted somewhere people could very quickly put their points on the board and move on. The To-Do columns are not entirely up to date, due mainly to the massive amount of Kickstarters and such that have come in lately, so we will probably just take a recount of those after the week is over.

   We’re getting started late tonight, because everyone had to work first, and some of us have to work tomorrow, so the theme for tonight and tomorrow is:  SUPERHERO DINOSAUR ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE!!!!! If you follow us, you know what that is. If you don’t, I swear it’s real. Go check it out on the Nexus Miniatures website. It’s a good choice for a first theme- lots of diversity, and the person who will have the most time to paint tomorrow will be yours truly- so it’s not like I’m going to run out of zombies.We’ll be back Sunday, when a lot more of us are off all day, with some more exciting goings-on!

REVIEW: Colors of War

Posted on May 18th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

By Sean “Throckmorton” Sarah

I am a painting nerd. If you’ve followed my blog posts on here over time you’ll notice they’re mostly of a painting related ilk. It’s my favorite part of the hobby so it’s also the part I take most seriously. That… And I’m perpetually bad at rules, so might as well focus on what I know, ya know?
Thus, Battlefront’s new Colors of War book had me SUPER JAZZED(tm)
All the painting guides in one place so I don’t have to look through a billion books just to find out how pea dot camo is painted? Yes please. 
And, at first look, this is a pretty great resource for both the beginning and advanced World War II hobbyist out there.

Painted Undead for MYTH

Posted on May 14th, 2015 under , . Posted by

I don’t know if I mentioned this, but with the recent MYTH Journeyman kickstarter that I backed I felt that i needed to get a good solid base for the game and hunted down a Captain level pledge from the original kickstarter. So now I’ve got a bunch of models waiting to be painted! Isn’t that a change of pace… hehe!

Shamblers and lair.

I decided to start with the undead as they are the

Original cylons for the win yo.If, like me, you grew up on a heady diet of shiny 70s and 80s sci-fi, you’ll know why I enjoyed painting this so much. Cylons were off the charts on the cool scale, and I still can’t decide who would win if a cylon centur…

Pushing Panthers

Posted on May 4th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

By Sean “Throckmorton” Sarah

I loves me some German armor. They’re sleek, futuristic looking, over engineered hunks of metal with a nasty rep. From the lowly Panzer II to the mighty Jagdtiger and King Tiger, I love to collect, paint and run German tanks of all shapes and sizes. Not only that, but their paint schemes are legitimately interesting and are a nice break from the drab green of the allies.

At the top of my list of favorite looking German armor things is the Panther. She may not be the most popular tank to take in our beloved hobby but man alive is she a sweet sweet ride. And, aside from the King Tiger, few other tanks have as much paintability and variety of look, especially in late war.

I love this tank so much it’s literally what got me into the game. The first 15mm models I painted were Panthers. The first lists I ever built were based off Kursk for MidWar and KG Bake for Late War. So, needless to say I’m a fan.

Thus, when I got my sweet new Grex Airbrush rig I decided I should christen it with some new (and some repainted) Panthers!

The Last Legion, my late late war panthers.
