More builds before the move

The time gets closer to the move and although I am looking forward to the move i am not looking forward to the month without hobbying.  The new house has a great basement with plenty of space for hobby stuff and a half decent gaming table.  A buddy of mine built one from scratch not too long ago and I might ask for his plans.  In the interim, I will have to get away with what I can and hopefully wont buy too many models in the time between.  Until then, here is the offering of the week.

Enter "Assassin" a forgeworld thunderbolt that I purchased 3 years ago.

 Some battle damage from a close call.

 The overall paint scheme was inspired by a P-51 and the ME-109.  Both great brawlers.

I'm planning on doing some nose are at some point but the rest has to be painted first.

 The base has been completed for a long time, but this is the project it was intended.

There will be a requirement for some more snow work before this project will be done.  Additionally I am thinking of adding some icicles.

Until next time, Happy Hobbying.

Fruits of my labour

I guess you could call the spurt of imagination and creativity a result of my avoiding work.  I just realized that I will be moving in a little under 12 days, which is pretty crazy.  Given that you don't come here to listen to me talk about my life, here are the photos.  Two more photos of my Primarch build on the display board.

  Roboute Guilliman looking appropriately regal.

Another photo of the Big Blue Smurf.

 If you were wondering what the weirdly shaped craters were for you have your answer.  Four Drop pods are just the star of this Ultramarines army.

Additionally, I got some work done on my Canadian Army for Flames of War.  Ever since they put out the rules for the 4th Canadian Armoured Brigade, I have wanted to make a Sherman army based around the Governor General's Foot Guard, also know as 21st Armoured Regiment.  13
tanks painted in 2 days.


The CO's tank.  Figured he would have an appropriately wicked Tank.

One of Three firefly's ready to take out some Panzers!

The biggest problem I run into lately was figuring out the unit insignia and C/s numbers for the tanks.  I have a pretty good understanding of current naming conventions given my work, but trying to find it online has been a pain in the ass.  Luckily I have a copy of A Brief history of the 4th Canadian Armoured Brigade in Action July 1944 - May 1945.  Hopefully this will enlighten me.


Happy Hobbying.
