Painting and shopping in Stockholm!

Well I hope everyone is enjoying the fall so far. The weather here in Sweden is cool and rainy but so far it has been enjoyable. The trees are all full of color with the trees changing colors.  I have been doing some painting and I wanted to share some pictures of what I have been working on.

On Sunday the club had a paint day, where members get together and paint.  I did not paint but i put together 11 TB-3's and cleaned up other 1/300 scale aircraft.

 On the way to the club I stooped and had a burger at one of the best burger place in Stockholm, E4 Burger. They have a number of type of burgers but I had the Barbecue burger. Here is a picture for you!!!!

So if you are wondering I just do not sit around eating burgers and playing games, the answer is NO. I also enjoy going into the historic part of Stockholm and take pictures and see the sights.

Being from the USA I have had to search for a hobby shop/miniature store to get supplies and miniatures. The local shop is called Alphaspel and they have a combination of boardgames and miniatures.  Most of the miniature purchases are done online but I got to Alphaspel to get supplies and a board game from time to time. Here is the link to the Alphaspel website and a picture for you. Game Shop

While I was at the club working on my aircraft a few members were playing a test game of Black Powder for an upcoming Battle of Lund game that will be run at a wargaming convention in Copenhagen later this month.  I took a few pictures of the action on the board.

We have some very talented painters in the club!!!!
I started working on my 15mm modern "green men" from Pico armor, I also build a 1/100 scale BTR-80 APC to use with the "green men".  Below is a picture of the first finished miniature from the Green men collection.

I hope everyone has a good week and I hope you have enjoyed this little update.


  1. I love that you've put up the legendary E4 Burger - its time someone sung its praises online! That 15 mm modern figure looks amazing! Tell me when its time to have a game with that range.

  2. Yes E4 Burger is good!!! They need to get an online presence, get added to Google Maps, get and Instagram site and hooked up on Facebook. The figure painted up very well! I am enjoying the painting. I will definitely let you know when I am ready for a game. Stay tuned I got my flight stands in and I am working on a product review.
