Blog discription

What will you find here? Ramblings from an aging gamer-miniature painter. When I first started out in this hobby computers were in their infancy and finding other gamers could only be done by going to conventions or as in my case bumping into somebody who happened to see me reading "Panzer Leader" on the school bus. Look how far we have come! The internet has allowed our small community to be able to connect on a level I never dreamed of when I was but a small lad. What I do hope you will find here is something interesting from one wargamer/miniature painter to another. I paint miniatures somewhat decently, so I will be posting some pictures of my work, and perhaps a review or two of games and/or miniatures. Most of all this is just about having fun and anything I post here is meant to be for that reason.

Project Cassino more base coating

Had some more time to work on the project. My first time really getting detailed with faces and I am not completely happy with how they turned out but I think I have the idea down and that I will get better as I do more. I filled in a bit more of the figures with their base coats. I need to build another 4 figures to complete the squad and painting four at a time seems to be working out. I am having so much fun just building the models I am being tempted to finish building my 1:400 scale U-boat from a while back. I have some nice photo etch to put on the bridge and perhaps I will work on it again if I need a break from the soldiers. Here are some more photos of work in progress.

 Also after building these four I have come to the conclusion that it will be much easier to paint the figures with the heads and weapons left off. Painting them in parts and adding them together later is something I have discovered when frustration set in trying to paint them as one.
