Watch out, he's historical!*
* A pun or punne on hysterical. I'm here all night folks.
I've not gotten anything finished to stick on here, so i figured i'd show the denizens of the interwebs a few models that got me back into regular painting after a pretty long slump.
Assembled and painted by my friend J, they're of a historical nature. This is a side of the wargaming/modelling hobby i've never really delved into beyond a rather brief attempt at painting a few airfix miniatures.
I'm no expert, but that's a cool looking tank.
His tank painting skills, unlike mine, are pretty well developed. Nice smooth coats and finishes, whereas my own tend to reveal brush strokes at every turn.
J's been posting these up on his facebook profile for a while, which in turn led me to stick some of my own kits online and got me to pick up a brush again to keep up.
I've even taken a look at a few Flames of War kits to maybe venture into historical gaming myself. Although given i have a hard enough time getting in a game of Warhammer and 40k these days, unless i find an opponent it'll likely remain a pipe dream. J sadly has proven remarkably resistant to my attempts to pester him into taking up the wargaming side of things.
Until next time,
Your Friendly Neighbourhood Spider-pope.
