Made these a few months ago for a Schwere Panzer Bake list.

I attended the April edition of the NorCal tournament circuit at Endgame in Oakland yesterday and my friend Reno took a few pics. Thought I'd share 'em.

|Assaulted by Forrest's New Zealanders!|
|Lorraine Schleppers. Way too expensive, but I love the models. Didn't really do much all day.|

Finally painted up some Nebs for my DAK list. Been trying to do these for a few months now but kept putting it off. Plan on using them for the Nor Cal circuit tournament in Oakland in April though, so I have a deadline. Dumb thing is, they took me all of about an hour and a half to do.

|Whole battery. Still need to do a wash and highlights, then groundwork.|

I built a display board for my Gebirgsjager for a tournament in Portland, OR last year and thought I'd post some work-in progress pics. I used blue insulation foam sheeting and GF9 static grass and snow, with some Woodland Scenics trees and some evergreens I bought in Japan a few years ago.
|Making sure everything fits.|
|I set up the board with the army being displayed. I wanted to make a three-tier board.|
|This is the board once I built it up with bits of extra foam. I marked where I wanted to sit my different platoons to make sure I had space.|
|Gorn rock. I wanted to display my HQ on the top tier along with my objectives. I also knew I wanted a large rock of some kind to draw attention to them, so I picked the most iconic of Hollywood rocks, the one where Captain Kirk fights the Gorn.|
|Some other boulders. I just carved up some extra bits of foam.|
|Painted and with Static Grass. I just used some acrylic hobby paint I stole from my wife.|
|Snow, leaves and trees added. The Static Grass and snow are from GF9, the leaves and trees are Woodland Scenics and the evergreens I bought at a train store in Osaka, Japan.|
|Some close ups of the detail areas.|
Thought I'd start off by posting some pics of my Gebirgsjager army. It took me two years from bits to table, and I still add platoons here and there when I have new ideas for tweaking my list. These poor guys have been chewed on by a rabbit, crushed by kittens, dropped off tables and had books fall on them, but I keep re-attaching their heads and machine guns. I have won Best Paint several times with them and Best Historical at a major competition in Vancouver, Canada. (40 players)

I have joined the blogosphere with what I hope to make into an engine to motivate me to paint on a regular basis. Finding time is very hard these days, with a new job and a 9 month old son stealing most of my spare time. I figure if I feel like I need to make regular updates to the blog here, it will force me to sit at the painting table, even if it's only for a few hours a week.
