We went to the Peabody Essex Museum recently to see the Rodin exhibit and found this single room Intersections exhibit:
Their website describes it as:
Intersections: Anila Quayyum Agha is an immersive single room installation that bathes the visitor in a geometric array of light and shadow. Inspired by traditional Islamic architectural motifs, Pakistani-American artist Anila Quayyum Agha’s laser-cut steel lantern conjures the design of the Alhambra Palace in Granada, Spain, a historic site of cross-cultural intersection where a thousand years ago Islamic and Western cultures thrived in coexistence. Agha, an internationally renowned, award-winning artist, creates mixed media works that engage topics ranging from global politics and cultural multiplicity, to mass media and gender roles.
Here is a slide show of all of the pictures I took:
I have steadily gathered a cache of pictures that I have now archived for your reference and viewing pleasure. Eventually, I will put them in a useful browser order using s jolly H4‘s comprehensive list.
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.
Here are a few choice pictures I took of boats in Boston Harbor. They are from the ferry ride to Georges Island for the Pirate Picnic 2016.
Here is a slide show of them all:
While on Georges Island, I had to take pictures of the many seagulls that hangout at and fly over the island. Here are a select few I particularly like and a slide show of them all.
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.

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.
I ran a Babylon 5 A Call to Arms game back in August for the Boston Trained Bands / Hobby Bunker Games Day. The scenario is from the Battle of Coriana VI between a Shadow group and a White Star/Brakiri/Narn group.
