Test Model Progress

I'm trying to paint this model with no airbrush, no pigments, and no materials (other than paint and brushes of course) that are not found in the Open Fire box. I had hoped that it would look sexy enough with just the dark yellow undercoat, but methinks this StuG doesn't pop enough. I'll entertain thoughts on this, but keep in mind the StuG...

A) Has to look good
B) Cannot require difficult to master painting methods

No small task, but nonetheless necessary if this video is going to serve as an introductory primer to the Flames of War hobby.

Starting Next FoW Video Project

Well, after finishing up some work tonight, I did a little cleaning up around the hobby room and decided on my next Flames of War video project. I'm going to do an introductory "painting primer" for those new to painting Flames of War tanks, featuring the Shermans and StuGs that we include in our "Open Fire" starter set. No airbrush, no pigments, and nothing else that a budding Flames of War hobbyist might not have kicking around the house. Just some clean, simple paint jobs that can be done quickly, with an introduction into simple weathering and detailing. Tomorrow night I'll shoot the StuG and maybe even the Sherman as well.

I've also got a 40K project for the upcoming "Kindred" tournament that I'm itching to start, but I'm still waiting on models and bits to show up. Hurry up postman...!

Better SU00 Pics

A friend of mine the US asked me to post up some higher quality shots of the SU100 I painted for a Battlefront tutorial video, so here they be! In case you have no idea what I'm talking about, follow this link and check it out for yourself:

I've got projects piling up, so it's really time to get my head out of my ass and start painting and blogging again...
