german kradschutzen (motorcycle)

I almost lost heart on these guys. But I persevered and now couldn’t be happier or more proud of myself, it really is the little things in life sometimes. Thank heavens for block painting, I don’t think I could have done it with the old method, at least without wrecking my eternal soul. I think…

german heavy support

Finished off these 15mm WWII Battlefront (Flames of War – fow) German heavy support units with some command stands recently. I probably could have fit the units on smaller bases and had them look better but instead chose to stick with the prescribed basing. I’m happy to get these fine folk finished, a nice distraction.…

polish infantry

So I was doing a periodic clean up and organizing and lo and behold I found a bunch of polish infantry I had painted up. I think I had moved on when I realized I still had to paint the artillery and then base all of it. With my old basing method it would have…

german ss – plane tree camo

I’m proud to announce a new unit ready for the war-games tabletop. These are some of Battlefronts (Flames of War) 15mm German SS.

german pioneers

I have added a new unit to my ever growing Early/Mid War German WWII army. These are some 15mm Battlefront German Pioneers. I really like the old metal Battlefront models because they remind me of cute little mice scurrying around, causing mischief, blowing stuff up etc. Next up on the painting table is some more…

german command

Well it has been one of those SNAFU months but I still persevered and managed to get a unit done. These are some Battlefront 15mm Mid War German Command. Not much to say about these, enjoy the block painted goodness. Next up is some Hellian spearmen, fun!

german assault pioneers

Just finished some brave Aryans ready to fight for the Vaterland. These are Battlefront’s GE884 ‘Oberfeldwebel Schmidt with Assault Troop Grenadierkompanie’. They turned out good, even with the splinter camo on some of the helmets. When I paint splinter camo, my secret is to just paint brown branches with green leaves. Probably not exact but…

old vs new

Like many of my generation, my first experience of toy soldier wargaming was through games workshop. I feel no ill will towards gw, in fact I have more than a little gratitude. Has gw changed? Obviously, and so have I. After discovering girls and the blinding lust of young adulthood became a memory, I returned…
