I know this thread title is a real thing, but every time I see it I imagine Jasper_the_2nd starting to type and then faceplanting on the keyboard.

Hey now, I was just copying the package label. ::P:

 

My military history rates just slightly worse than my German (which is boosted solely by having heard 'du hast' a number of times....) :wacko:

Technically, technically, that would be Ausf. H ("Ausführung H" -- don't forget the umlaut, and since "Ausführung" is a noun, it needs to be capitalized -- which is "Model H", more or less.)

Progress!! (of a sort)

I has paints....that I'm hoping will thin out once they warm up a bit.  It was above freezing today, but only a couple of degrees, and they sat for a couple of hours.  Hopefully alright.  They are liquid, just very thick....

Jasper! You're doing a tank too! I've been off the forum forever, but I'm working on a 1/72 Tiger for grins and giggles. I'm definitely going to keep an eye on what you're doing here...

Hey Kharsin, welcome back!!

 

This has unfortunately been on the back burner for a bit.  I'm playing catch up on my exchange project.  

And I had to get replacement paints from Scales Games. Something happened (presumably in transit) to my whole order and the paints were unusable.  Just got my replacements this week, so I'm hoping to get this back on the paint table as soon as my exchange is done.

      Hello all! It's been forever since I've posted here or painted anything for that matter. Life has been extremely busy as of late, and I haven't had a lot of time to pursue my artistic interests... well, that and I tend to jump from hobby to hobby. At any rate, figured I'd drop this here as it's miniature, even if not a mini. I need to get back to minis, but I ended up with this 1/72 Tiger tank... So here's where we are.
       

       
      For some reason, I decided to start in 1/72. I'm not sure why. Maybe because it's tiny. Maybe because it's closer to "minis." Maybe I just ate some bad chicken and thought it'd be a great idea! However, I ended up with Hans and Frans....
       

       
      They are really, really ugly and really, really tiny! I should probably put a mini Dwarf on the turret just to show that they are indeed in the Land of the Lost, and surely to meet their end at the charge of the Gutbuster Brigade or the like....
       
      At any rate, it's a different change of pace from normal minis... although it's been about a year since I've painted any additional minis. My experience with Hans and Frans hasn't done anything to encourage extra exploration, but I think if I do more armor, (and it'll happen, I have a 1/35 Matilda in a box....), at least their figures will be closer to what I'm used to working with. They're just a lot smaller and with not as good casting as I'm used to with Reaper minis and others.
       
      In the meantime, it's nice to be getting back to painting. I need to come up with a diorama for these guys. I've got a few touch-ups to do here and there, but I'm pretty much done with the model at this scale. I need to order some pigments to weather this thing as that's where I was headed before I went on mini hiatus. Purchasing too many pigments I mean... It's going to take pigments to make the funky rubber treads this thing came with look anything like real tank treads. LOL!
       
      Comments, questions, and WHERE THE HECK HAVE YOU BEENS!?!!? are welcome!

      This time, we have a themed group.  I wanted to added some more members to my Arabian Nights themed forces, with intent to use them for RPG encounters and a Frostgrave warband.  Last time it was mostly Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set, this time it's a variety of sources.
       
      The group:


       
      "Nabin, Desert Ranger" by Reaper:



       
      "Rasia, Bladedancer" by Reaper:
       


       
      "Watchers of Karna" from GW's LotR line:
       


       


       
      "Revolting Peasant" by West Wind
       


       
      Wargames Foundry:
       


       


       
      "Corsairs of Umbar" from GW's LotR line:



       


       


       


       


       


       
      And unrelated to the theme except for being found in the frozen city of Frostgrave, an Ice Toad from a D&D Giant Frog:

      First tank I've ever painted. Sort of happy with how it turned out. The wings/skull symbols are made from clay.:

      Whew, wasn't sure I was going to get this done in time for my August RPChallenge.
      After doing a bunch of Sci-Fi BSRs I had a craving for something a little more old timey. I've had a box of vehicles for Empire of the Dead sitting there since the kickstarter, so though now was the time to try one.  Having never painted a carriage before, or painted a horse before (unless you count mutated goblin steads, I did do a unit of Ugu's Cavalry for Clan War once)  I went with the "easiest" one, with only 2 wheels and one horse.
       

       

       

       
       
      Now when I started I knew there was a driver, but I didn't realize there were passengers in the carriage when I was estimating how long it would take....
       
      Anyway, it turned out better than I expected, and final assembly wasn't quite the nightmare I was worrying it would be.
      So I'm happy.
       
       
      WIP here.

      The source of my recent Noble Knight impulse spree, I'd been looking to complete a set of Arabian Nights style adventurers for encounters and skirmish games such as Frostgrave.  Reaper's "Legends of the Sands" boxed set seemed perfect, and Noble Knight had it both in stock and on sale.  A perfect time.

      You may notice the set is incomplete; I already had the Jafar type sorcerer painted from a solo purchase, didn't care much for one of the Warlord pieces, and grew frustrated with the Assassin and set him aside.
       
      There's also a few Thugs who come as back-up from West Wind...they'd been in the collection for years and fit the theme.
       
      The party as a whole:
       

       
      The Sheik:
       


       
      The Garishly Garbed Guard:
       


       
      The Colossus:
       


       
      The Pirate:
       


       
      The Wise Man:
       


       
      The Thief of Thieves:
       


       
      The Princess:
       


       
      The trio of Thugs, via West Wind:
