No Love in North Africa

So I finally given up on creating a DAK company for the time being. I bought enough to get started. Struggled for weeks trying to get the color for the vehicles just the way I wanted it. Mixing various amounts of German Camo Beige, Iraqi Sand, Desert Yellow, and Dark Sand and test painting over …

Flames of War Soviet HMG Company

Soviet HMG Company

Now that I have the basics done for most of my armies I'm working on adding some odds and ends, or cleaning out the painting queue. Basically anything that catches my eye.

New IV H Panzer Platoon

I finally built and painted up the Flames of War Panzer IV H platoon I've had sitting on my shelf for 2 years and added it to my German Army. I've been putting it off for two reasons. First I hate assembling battlefront Panzer IVs. The plastic shurtzen sprue is so brittle that no matter …

US Airborne Field Artillery

Over the summer between work, vacation, and various family matters I did very little painting. Now that fall has arrived and I have time to work on my miniatures again I decided that before I allowed myself to buy anything new I needed to complete the three unfinished projects sitting on my work bench. At …

New T-34s added to my Soviet Army

Well, its taken me forever to finish these, but they are finally done. I've added 10 T-34s with 76 and 85 turret options to my Soviet Army. I'm not sure what it is about Soviet units but painting them always seems to drag on forever. I was just pushing just to get them done so …
