As well as painting minis and writing this blog, another thing that I should have grown out of by now is playing in a band. I wanted to design some badges to give away at gigs, and the inspiration was this poster for the 1966 film Battle of the Bulge.
Being a pretty novice designer, I didn't stand much chance of recreating this, so instead I downloaded a schematic of a StuG, block coloured it red, and came up with these:
They proved to be quite popular, and I've ended up adopting the red StuG logo for a lot of the band's promotional material. Here's our album cover...
Anyway, I decided that it would be fun to paint up an actual Flames of War mini in the same way. Here is a traditional shot of the mini:
