I have just learned that Dave Gulczynski, the man behind Warpaint Studio (link to his page in the "Wargame Links" section, to the right) and occasional part of our local WFB group, has passed away.
He had a wonderfully clean and colorful painting style that made my figures look like dull little pebbles. His commissioned figures brightened up the local gaming tables, and the tables and collections of his clients around the world. I'm sad I never had him paint anything for me. Locally, everyone simply called him "Painter Dave."
Very sad and unexpected news.
