Open Fire!

Finally, finally, I’ve finished painting everything for the store’s Open Fire boxed set for Flames of War. And there’s quite a bit of stuff in there – I did the math a while ago and I recall each included army comes to something like 1200 points. It’s a great deal if you’re interested in Flames of War, but I will warn you – that box contains a very large number of tiny Germans to paint. As promised, here are pictures:

Even with fairly basic paintjobs these took me quite a bit longer than I had hoped – another reminder that I paint slooooowly. But I think the end result looks pretty good, and will serve as a glimpse into Flames of War for people coming into the store. I’m looking forward to getting back to some of my own projects now that this is out of the way – I have lots more Epic waiting. And terrain. And 3D modelling to work on. And my new Reaper Bones. And maybe some Panther tanks…

Maybe my progress tends to be slow because I have so many different things to be working on? No, that’s impossible.

Thanks for reading!
