Apparantly, you Americans cannot imagine getting condoleances from abroad.
Therefore, Belgium is now firmly settled in Washington DC.


I also took the liberty of adding Steveb to the "Old Ones" member group. I found that fitting.

hahaha really ?

Really and suprisingly the Netherlands fit in there as well.

Bit of a late reaction, but I wasn't sure on what to do with this information really..but I still wanted to say something

I haven't really had a connection with SteveB via this platform though I always looked up to him as being one of the monoliths of this community, he will be missed for sure! And keep up the good work Zak!

What SKS said. The brush and palette forum was never my preferred haunt on this site, and I only go there very occasionally - but one can't spend a lot of time on W-E and not be familiar with steveb's remarkable creativity and collection. Ping pong tables full of cavalry, renaissance helicopters, very uniquely mounted knights - all beautifully done, and all testament to a talented and busy mind that enjoyed going where no one had gone before.

I wish I could say I will miss him personally, but I never really talked to him. But I will certainly miss his presence on the site as a whole, as one of the cornerstones of the forums. He definitely was one of the greats of our hobby, and in all my years here, I never heard anyone talk about him with anything but admiration. And being this universally respected in a community as diverse as ours is no small feat in itself.

So farewell steveb!

On behalf of Steveb wife Peggy. Thank you all for the love and support you showed. Steveb Memorial service was yesterday,  great turn out with full military honors ( he served in the Airforce during Vietnam) She had a display of Steveb work and had many questions about the small figurines  and just how amazing his art was especially on such a small figure haha. Steveb remains are being flown out today ( 1-23-2019) and he will be laid to rest in Illinois, im not sure where.


His collection will be continued to be displayed in as much glory and coolness as I can muster with my limited understanding of technologies haha.


On a personal note thank you for the kind messages, posts, and support. I feel like this site is family in a weird dysfunctional way   :-P



Now be happy and place his memory in a good place in your heads, he would have told you to smile and keep painting !!!  :smile2:

This is so sad to hear!  :icon_cry: I've been away from this forum for a while and decided to come and check things out again, then found this.

RIP steveb, your collection and friendly posts were always an inspiration to me as well.   :::cheers:::

Hey Timbor it has been awhile. We are keeping his memory alive through a few media forums so check it out.
