Where are the updates?!

So it's been a little while since I have updated anything. Well a few things have taken shape this month. I am still heading out to adepticon next month. However we are no longer doing our huge La Salle game set for the battle of Salamanca. Mr. Taylor and I were pretty much on track to be finished on time, but it would seem the French haven't the stomach to finish their armies! ;) However we will reschedule the Battle of Salamanca and make it much more grand now! MUHAHA!

Ok, a little confession, I also got distracted. For this I have to thank Rob Villnave at Battlefront Miniatures (On of the Frogs) for feeding the curiosity of Flames of War and somehow within the past month I have procured two German Armies that I am working on for the two beginner tournaments at Adepticon. The first one I started with was my Late War Gerpanzerte Panzergrenadiers. And as of this past week I got my Mid War Fallschrimjager Kompanie. So soon I will post some WIP shots of zee Germans...

With that I will leave you with one of my all time favorite quotes about the French from one of my favorite movies, Last of the Mohican's.

"The French haven't the nature for war. Their Gallic laziness combined with their Latinate voluptuousness with the result that they would rather eat and make love with their faces than fight."

This is where I work...

So one thing I usually see most painters do is post a pic of their workspace. I am always curious myself to see where others work their magic. So here is my little slice of... Well this is where I do my painting. It's my computer desk. You can see British Napoleonic's in 28mm and my 15mm Germans from Flames of War. And a bunch of paints. A bunch of beat up brushes in the center ( I have some new Winsor Newtons on the way) and a ceramic tile and plastic paint tray for my pallet's. And the most important piece of equipment at any paint station... Booze! And extra dirty martini in this case. Normally a beer of some sort or red wine. I have been a slacker on pictures but I have not been too slack on painting. I will post some WIP of my Gerpanzerte Panzergrenadiers that I am working on. I just started painting them for a tournament in Chicago in March, I still have to purchase another army to paint as well for the same event.
