Damn.  This really saddens me.  I don't know squat about his personal life, but he always seemed like a decent bloke to know.  Correspondence always polite and witty, pleasure to work with. 

Insane awe at his dedication to the hobby.  Had perfect attitude about this whole thing.

Never saw him argue, or politick or rant.  Did see him peacemake on occasion.

We should all take time away from whatever we're doing this weekend and paint a miniature in Steve's honor. Maybe even start a thread & post them.

What terrible, terrible news. I've spent hours looking for the absolutely perfect card to send to him.

I for one am going on a painting binge in his memory.

Finding a card was very difficult - lots of "Get Well Soon" ones and then the Sympathy ones.
I finally found a simple "Thinking of You" one, but sadly it's too late.

Well I think I will still send his good lady a Sympathy card - she probably needs to know exactly how much we all cared for him.

I'm definitely for painting in his honor this weekend.  Not sure what yet, and will decide that in the coming days.  Sunday is going to be a snow day, and I will likely paint something then.

Tonight ... my toast spoken out loud with a glass of Italian Primitivo ... "To Steve B.'s classiness and gentleness, to his painting, storytelling, and creativity, in the memory of his greatness, long may our memory be thinking of him as we enjoy the hobby with his presence in mind.  Three cheers ... huzzah ... huzzah ... huzzah! :::cheers::: :::cheers::: :::cheers:::

God bless his family and friends, and may good memories balance out the loss felt at this time. :smile2:

I haven't bought a card yet, but will soon, and send it to Peggy accordingly.

I ran into the same issue with cards, and have done the same

I will also toast in his honor and paint something Imperial. Was going to kitbash an engineer, but with the impending snowpocalypse arriving tomorrow, I think I may have to do something thats already  prepped & primed.

Dammit! I am always too late  :icon_sad:

Our band grows smaller with each loss and I wish I would not work this weekend. I wish I could just sit and paint for SteveB.

I hope he will play some good games in with them angels.

I will keep the memory of Steveb close to my heart as even though I only knew him on these forums, he was a great inspiration for me and a gentleman the likes of which you hardly find around these days.  I hope that this is just the start of his converting, painting and playing for him and who knows maybe he is already organising a game with Rufas too.....that is what I want to think anyway as i am too sad due to his loss.

Going through a box I found a card that Peggy gave Steveb for one of their anniversaries, "To my soul mate, I will love you for the rest of our lives"....   this was a happy find in the sense that they were so in love to the end. Guys I really think these cards are going to help her out so much knowing she was not the only one that cared so much.

Damn! Now I remember how I miss Rufas too...  :icon_sad:

I am however certain Rufas and SteveB are setting up a game in the Halls of Elysium as we type.

Rest in Peace SteveB.

When I get back home, I will write a letter. Maybe someone can proof read it?

Hey guys Ive been out in business and just received the news.  SteveB was a pillar of our community, one whos creativity was always an inspiration to all of us.  I knew the outlook was not good yet prayed for his recovery.  Ill do what I can to immortalize his presence here. Im at a bit of a loss for words.  Travel well SteveB you will be missed.

Totally agree.


He will be missed. But at least his legacy will live on thanks to zak.


A toast to Steve !

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.
