Recently, I got to do a once in a life time visit to a gentleman who has, arguably, the largest Warhammer collection in the world especially our beloved Empire! Steveb is not only a great miniature collector but human being, with many stories of his life, military, and craft.  He told Grutch that this site has been a haven for him, as he can share and be inspired by all of us who love this hobby.  Steve, unfortunately, is very sick and I wanted to publicly start this thread so we can show him much love and support through this trying time.


Steve you will always be the craziest miniature madman I know  :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap: :eusa_clap:

Much love and support for you and your wife

Zak

Steve your army is freaking legendary, and I remember just gazing at your pictures in awe when I first joined up. Heck, every few months I go back and look at them. Every time I do I see more amazing details I didn't notice before.

Hope you beat this sickness into the ground, we're pulling for you.

Zak ... thanks for starting this thread!

- - -

SteveB ... one the best of the best.

It had just occurred to me recently that I hadn't seen your presence around here much.

My thoughts and prayers with you, your wife, and family.  Your collection, painting, and stories of the figures rank with my favorites of all time.  The Steam Tank Force, it's an armada of imagination, nifftyness, and Imperial magnificence.

May your illness be defeated in good time, and I dream of making a pilgrimage to SteveB land to see your miniatures in the real!

Thank you again for the wonderful wizard you made, painted and sent to me during one of the exchanges here on W-E, it is loved, protected, and I think of you every time I see it.

:icon_biggrin: :icon_cool: :eusa_clap: :::cheers:::

All the best is hoped for you,

This says it all really. I'm one of your admirers, and am more than a bit envious to zak having witnessed your collection with his own eyes. I wish I could.

Hope to witness more of your creativity and vision. Hope you get better!

Get well soon, SteveB. Once you are through the worst, why not try some modelling and painting as a recuperation aid? Sounds good, eh?
Photobucket has graciously resurrected my pictures, so my collected works thread is suddenly working again - see http://warhammer-empire.com/theforum/index.php?topic=38528.0. To see my slowly growing website go to https://bigsmallworlds.com/

Last night I was browsing through the first few pages of my plog here looking for an old image someone was asking about, and I got sidetracked reading some comments from a few years ago. Many were from steveb, and it hit me that I hadn't seen much from him in a while.

Hope your health improves, Steve!

Good of you to announce this zak !


Steve, I cannot appplaud you enough. Your endless hobby inspiration has been a beacon.
Also, you sir are one of the very few people in the world whose pictures I regularly show to my wife.
Along with the lines "See dear, my collection really isn't anything out of the ordinary. This man for example has a lot more stuff"
Of course, she's not falling for that any more now, but it helped a while.
Also, your eternally positive and encouraging remarks have made you stand out from the crowd. I cannot for the life of me remember an occasion where you solely critisized another persons' work without pointing out the effort made and your admiration for that.


You are one of the giants of this site. Thank you for occasionally letting me stand on your shoulders to take a project just that little bit further.


About your illness : I hope you beat it buddy. I'm not a religious man, so no prayers, but I'll be rooting for you at least.


All the best.

Hi steveB
As a relative newcomer to this site, I did not know your reputation. Quickly I found that you were a highly respected member of WE. As with said above, all your comments and advice are uplifting. I always loved that signature someone quoted of yours ‘ take 2 aspirin and go paint’. I get that completely.

Hope you conquer this illness.
Thanks! 😺

You have always been an inspiration to me. Your modeling and painting has given me countless ideas to explore. When my wife complains that my collection is to big, I have showed her yours on several occasions. I just want to say thanks and get well soon.

Hi SteveB

Like others I thought you hadn’t been around recently but your profile said you’d been active a day or so before so assumed ‘Life’ was getting in the way.

Sorry to hear that it’s one of ‘Life’s’ bad aspects and hope you soon recover.

You are one of the highlights on this Forum, whether it’s the strange inventions (airforce and Stanks come immediately to mind), the painted pieces from your ancient lead pile or your general comments that guide, encourage and inspire.

All the Best

JAK

I am saddened by this news  :icon_sad:  as the others said before me  steveB is one of the giants of this site and his collection is awe inspiring....from masses of foot troops and cavalry, to whole battalions of artillery and steam tanks, not to mention the city of Buggerhof (silent H)....I mean man you are one of the big inspirations around here.  I hope you get better Steve and though I am not very religious myself, I will still pray for your speedy recovery in my own way.  The WE community will await your renewed contribution to this site so that our muse and inspiration continues to be tugged at by your wonderful works.
We cannot direct the wind, but we can adjust our sails....

SteveB is what keeps me coming back here having abandoned almost all other warhammer related forums after the debacle that is AoS . I must go through his army photos at least once a week.

Take care SteveB and get well soon.
