More painting and more painting   Leave a comment

I have been a very busy bee the last couple month.  In addition to painting two ACW armies, TY models, and some Space Marines, I have painted some a number of other models.  First up an Imperial Roman Century (well only 20 dudes instead of 80)

Roman Century

The goal will be a Roman Legion and Barbarian Army (Celt, Gaul, or Germanic)

Space Marine Primaris force   Leave a comment

My son has always been into Warhammer 40k.  He picked up the Dark Imperium, Know No Fear, and First Strike boxes over the summer at Historicon.  I know… its not exactly historical!!

Primaris Leadership

They have been in my painting drawers since summer.  To throw more variety into my painting spree and focus on ACW, I decided to complete these, so I can get a few games of 40k in my son.

My Space Marine chapter is called Storm.  I painted the flag to represent a lightning storm.

Although my focus has been on the American Civil War Miniatures, I broke up the painting by working on a number of Team Yankee miniatures to support the new TY Stripes American book.

Firestorm Red Thunder: Battle of the Tulips   Leave a comment

Sorry no pictures of Tulips!  However, it was one heck of a battle 🙂

My friend Brian and I have been putting together two new armies for Team Yankee.  He has been working on an East German Army and I have assembled a British Army.  They arent fully painted, I know it is a sin, but we wanted to see how this works.

Taking the next step: 3D Printing   Leave a comment

Meet Lulzbot Mini

3D Printer

The mini was reviewed as a intermediate level printer, but an easy learning curve.  I try not to spend money on simple devices knowing full well I would upgrade in the near future.  So we got this one from Amazon for $1250 USD.  Of course I had to buy a bunch of filament for about $30 per spool.

Firestorm Red Thunder: Onward to Frankfurt   Leave a comment

This is the second for us in the Team Yankee Firestorm campaign.  This week both my son and daughter played and I filled the role as game master.  In my role I tried to provide unbiased advice for both.  They didnt always take it!!  I spent the week painting up many models to bring them to game quality.  I still have several steps to go on a number of models.
