3rd Armored Division perhaps?

I am currently playing around with quickly(HA) painting up a US Armored Company for Flames of War.  I still have yet to fully finish painting an army of mine over 1000 points.  This is just a little test work in progress on one of my Stuarts from the list I came up with.  I have taken more of a sharper highlight approach which I don't normally do on 15mm.  And then tried to dirty the tanks up a bit.  I dunno, just pristine armor doesn't do it for me.  I like the look of some mileage on the boys.

Now if only I could find a 15mm Telly Savalas chewing on a stogie... I would be a happy man!

Slight touch up..

So I did a little touch up on the base of infantry I am testing out. All of these are dipped. I touched up their skin and added their eyes and prepared the muskets for the metal.  More to come. And caution, the image is huge!

Currently on the workbench...

As the Heroes of Armageddon winds down to it's last few days I have taken back up the brushes to work on my Napoleonics. My true passion in miniature painting at this time. Here are some French Fusiliers I am playing with.  All but 2 are dipped for their base coats. I've had a hard time finding my groove on these guys. For some reason the British were easier.  I guess white is just an intimidating color for me to paint as I never feel I get it right. More to come.  I will put up some pics of my Flames of War Polish from Nationals soon as well.

Steel Legion Complete

As you can see both of the command squads have been finished. Actually they have been finished for a few weeks now and in the care of Dave Taylor.  I had to rush these bad boys out as I had 5 days until the US National's at HistoriCon for Flames of War and I had a whole Polish Army to paint.

Anyhow, there are only a few weeks left for us to take donations for Heroes of Armageddon. So please if you can, dig in to those PayPal accounts and try to give at least $5. More if you can. And make a donation today!
