Vlad the Impaler

One historical figure that I've always been interested in is Vlad the Impaler. I find the mixture of myth and truth to be really interesting and find myself reading about him from time to time.

So when I saw Lyn of Metalhead Minis painting up a bunch of mini busts, which included one of Vlad, I instantly asked where to find him and bought one for myself.

GUTS - Chibi Sherman Tank

While working the Ninja Division booth at GenCon, I painted some German soldiers for their new line of WWII era minis, GUTS. I instantly fell in love with them and left with a Sherman tank and a squad of US HQ.

I had big plans for them, but eventually they all went to the back burner. That is until I needed to find something to paint on stream, after I finished Vlad the Impaler. On a whim, I primed the Sherman and went to work on it.
