So It Begins!

With me getting heavily back into Flames of War, I've decided to join the blogging revolution. Not really to sure how this all works. But I suppose I will begin documenting what I paint, and the battles we have.

I've been painting for a very long time, but have only just become serious in the last few years of my life.

I've probably enjoyed World War II longer then I have painting. So, Flames of War is a natural hobby for me.

I actually thought I was a pretty good painter until I saw people like Tom Wise and the rest of the FoW community...yikes. These are pictures of his Tiger tanks. I have a long way to go.

I've already tried to use Tome Wises suggestion of a technical pen for shadows. #1, no one in Canada seems to even know what a technical pen is. So, I found the closest thing. Not sure if I like it yet or not.

I'm almost done my Junkers JU87D's so i'll post pictures of those. It was the first project I used the "technical pens" on.

    Just an FYI, if you are interested in hosting your blog at your own domain name, I have a web server, and could hook you up for free. Just thought I'd mention now, as it's harder to move a blog address once it's established.

    I look forward to seeing how my seed money helps develop your painting. Make sure you put up some tutorials as you go.

    FYI, I have a blog at
