Finishing my Panzerkompanie for Flames of War in 6mm.

Tale of Romanian Wargamers

I decided to move my Flames of War in 6mm updates to the Tale of Romanian Wargamers section since i intend to have allot of updates in the future and State of War is reserved for general musings. Finding time for some hobby work proved a challenge in the past weeks and micro-sessions (as i call them) seemed to be the answer until i had 2 full hours to spare for major work. Micro-sessions are indeed short bursts of 5-10 minutes at a time when you actually do something to progress with your project. For me that was for example: cutting the bases for all of my vehicles, painting a few of these bases in advance, applying primer to the miniatures and washing my painting tools. This actually ensures that when you do have some solid time to work you will not waste it on minor tasks but you’ll get actually to the core of the problem: painting the miniatures.

When i painted the first part of my Panzerkompanie, the Panther’s, i noticed i used too much paint. I was determined to not let this happen this time, so i used a heavy drybrush approach to the rest of my force. Above you can see my AA support minus the actual guns. As this was looking much better i used the same technique going forward.

Finally, this is where i stand now, my full Panzerkompanie:

I still need to paint the tracks and wheels of all vehicles and decorate the bases somewhat but i can now actually field them on the game table. Glancing back to the pile, it still doesn’t seem i made much of a progress, does it?
