File under "T" for Tank-Porn

Imprint Models - a company that until recently I had no idea existed - just released another 1/50 scale AFV in their range of modern AFVs and IFVs.

The latest release is an M1 Abrams and it looks quite nice (except for that fact that whomever put the model together put the drive sprocket in the front of the model rather than the back (See actual tank picture). I think it's just a case of putting the tread pieces on backwards - probably a WWII model builder as most tanks do have the drive sprocket in the front. None the less, it's still a great model for wargaming, and I think I should like one.

I'm also really fond of their:

Bradley Fighting Vehicle
Warrior Infantry Fighting Vehicle
and HMMWV

Gallery Update 2/2/06

Heyas! Just did a quick update to my miniature gallery at Network-23.net. I added 30 new things, having done some Ikore undead, a Battle for Macragge boxed set, a few mongols and a pulp 1930's gangsta. :) I got some cool conversion still sitting around in my "workbench" gallery - but being ADD I'm not sure when or if I will get to them. I should have another gallery update within the next few days if everything goes well. If not, tough noogies - you'll just have to wait. :D

In other news, I'll be helping with the painting events at Cold Wars and I'll also be teaching some workshops. I'm slated for "How to paint - for absolute beginners", "Techniques for painting an army", and "Painting for Show and Display". My sweetheart Jenna will be teaching a few workshops as well - and we will be running a speed painting contest 2 of the days - so if you are heading to cold wars be sure to stop on by and say "hi" to everyone, and perhaps sign up for a workshop or two. Or speedpaint - it's fun and we have prizes :)
