German U-Boat

Just a quick post of a one off model I painted as part of the IJN commission. It’s not IJN, but rather a German U-Boat that was the bonus model. Super simple scheme, but I’m pretty happy with how it looks. Advertisements

Japanese Coastal Boat Fleet – Part 1

It really is Feboatary. I’m painting an IJN fleet for a friend and this is the progress thus far: the Sampans and the Kamikaze boats. This first post is the crazy stuff from the fleet box. Sampans: I think this will be the only sailboats I’ll be painting for Cruel Seas. I’m not sure if…

German Schnellboots

Cruel Seas is a new 1:300 scale Naval game created by Warlord Games. I’ve got a soft spot for Naval miniatures and on an impulse I picked up a box of the Schnellboots, because they’re just so damn pretty. I’ve since picked up a full German fleet and I’m also in the middle of painting…

Ancient Greek/Carthaginian Camp

The last ingredient for my Carthaginian army this weekend. I need a camp and the rules are pretty liberal on what it can be (even the base size is a ide range). I chose the smallest base possible 40mmx80mm and started filling it with stuff. I started with a Greek style tent from Baueda Wargames,…

Anglo-Danish Hearthguard – Dane’s Axes

Again, these have been sitting around waiting for me to base with static grass, but now they’re done and there weren’t any shields. Yeah! Most of the colours are the same as for the Anglo/Viking Warriors. However, I made the following tweaks to the common elements Chainmail, Helmet & Axe Blade: Base: Oily Steel (VMC…
