Finding pictures of miniatures, painted or not, via searches tends to turn up very few pictures. The best sources tend to be the few blogs of modern naval miniatures players (av8rmongo being a good one) or people selling them on eBay. The most prolific purveyor of said painted miniatures is gak8346. One of which is shown above.
If you want to share pictures with the collection, would like attribution for your picture, or want me to take your picture down, email me at jokeefe at jamesokeefe dot org.
Pictures of 1/2400 modern naval miniatures are not prevalent, even on manufacturer websites. GHQ and Sea Wulf are the most complete. Viking Forge is next best. Pfc.C-in-C and Superior have none, though Odin Arts and Collectables once had pictures of all of Pfc. C-in-C’s range. The designers on Shapeways at least put up pictures of the rendered model, which is much better than nothing.
I have steadily gathered a cache of pictures that I will eventually post at whenimaginationfails.org using s jolly H4‘s comprehensive list.

Here is one example of his work: GHQ’s California class CGN which I scooped up:
He does commissions, so if you find that you don’t have time to paint your naval miniatures, gak8346 is your man.
Many months ago I ran a game with my son to test Fistful of TOWs 3. The game was of a Soviet T80 tank regiment assault on two companies of West German Leopard 1A4s. My son played the Soviets and I played the West Germans.
The Soviets attempted to flank the Germans from both sides and ended up destroying the German defenders, though at a loss of nearly half the regiment. In retrospect, the center battalion should have held off its attack until North and South battalions commenced their attack. Amazingly, the last stand of the center tank battalion managed to survive its morale check. I put up a slide show of the game.
In addition to this game, I ran another game that I will post about later. I haven't had much time to game, though I painted my LeClercs and YPR-765s.
