The Talented Tomwise and his Tiger Totalitarianism

Those of you who play Flames of War already know the name Tom Wise if you've ever spent more than a few minutes on the forum. The man is a painting machine well known for buying and painting every single option from an entire book. He does them quickly, and the results are beautiful. Frankly, all at once it's awe inspiring, frustrating, and bizarre. Tom has a really clean style, and I've "acquired" most of his techniques in my own painting (namely the black lining with an artist pen). In addition to being a ridiculously prolific (not to mention highly talented) painter, Tom is a great player and all around good guy to hang around with.

For those of you who are somewhat unfamiliar with Flames of War, a typical game consists of 2 forces each "costing" between 1500 and 2000 points each. Most of my battle reports are between 2 1750pt forces.

Tom's Tigers taken as Heer (Standard German army) add up to close to 90,000 points. Taken as SS (Fearless German troops) they add up to well over 100,000. My entire collection of every single Flames of War model doesn't come close to this number, and this is just one of Tom's numerous ridiculous collections!

Anyways, enough with the introduction, here's some of his work reprinted here with his permission.

A snippet of Tom's original post follows after the break

*Every Allied Tanker's Claim*
Every German Tank was a Tiger...

There are 339 Tigers on the table.
102 - King Tigers.
237 - Tiger I's

Thanks Tom for letting me repost these here!

Well .... that makes my current speed on troops look minor. Great looking tanks though

Considering that it has taken me nearly 2 weeks to complete my HQ platoon for my LW Grenadierkompanie, I feel pretty inept compared to Tom. :)

Beautiful models, by the way!!
