Trowbridge Painting Service specializes in painting Battlefront Miniatures' Flames of War 15mm vehicles and troops. Trow Davis assembles and paints each vehicle to a high standard, including FoW decals.
He prefers to leave the clear coating to the customer, as he has found that while some gamers prefer semi gloss or gloss finish, others are equally insistent on a matte clearcoat. The infantry and vehicle crews are painted to the same high standard with many details, such as the German's collar stripes, carefully picked out. The average vehicle sells for $16 USD.
Trowbridge was doing brisk business on Saturday, with many vehicles being snapped up and with more custom orders being placed. Sharing a corner of the table, but very noticeable, were miniatures of completely different scales and genres. A small fleet of impressively painted Games Workshop Man-O-War figures sat in front of equally well-painted Bretonnian Knights - both were painted by Trow's partner, Ed Haley.
On the other side, Flying Buffalo Games had their usual assortment of Nuclear War card games and Lost Worlds books, but had a selection of games that ran a gamut of different genre's and styles - including an alternative WWII ruleset featuring an expanded U.S. Navy rigid airship force, and an expansion for Gorilla Games' entertaining Battlestations sci-fi game.
