Hi all, some WIP terrain for all things zombie. They are HO scale model kits, with lots of greeblies added, to suit 15mm. Getting closer to a full 4x2 suburb table, then I can begin my solo ATZ terrain!
The second building is an apartment building, proxie models kit
The third block has one house with a playable interior
Upstairs with attic access for sniping
Downstairs kitchen and living room. Stairs, while not exactly realistic, will allow models to sit on them.
TSR miniatures are notorious for two things - lead rot, and the questionable sculpting on their human minis. Nevertheless, I thought I might have a crack at rescuing one of these old sculpts, so that she can see some use on the gaming table once more. My intention is to make a space crew with a mix of old minis, possibly for AE bounty or Infinity.
Here she is, painted from a black undercoat, dry brushed grey and then white, and black washed. Colors were then lightly built up from there, ala Dave King's tutorials.
Heaps of pulpy retro character, the face was tough as the features were so fine.
Some neat details including a little rocket pack and grenade
I painted the hood to have some glowing lights around it - possibly a force field generator over the hood, to allow operation in vacuum.
After the enjoyable kickstarter for empire of the dead, west wind have convinced me that they are on the top of their game. With the knowledge that the secrets of the third reich kickstarter is happening later this year, I have got in early by beginning a US force.
First off the blocks is this Reaper miniatures not-teen wolf (photo from reaper website, sorry for the quality). Got him for about $4 on sale
A fetching track suit or tight jeans combo going on here. Not very WW2. Needs some new threads and some firepower.
Ok time to break out the greenstuff
Flight jacket was made with some green stuff to the collar and the sleeves.
Some cuffs were added to the pants to get rid of that skinny jeans look
Hinting at a pre werewolf history. Guns and pouches from warlord games us sprue, which I have got to begin my troops with.
While I know nothing about the game (and don't want to bother getting the rulebook now that it is about to be superseded), I have been told he will make an excellent sentinel.
This is the beginnings of my all things zombie collection. I have gone for 15mm, as there is ready access to 'conventional' terrain in HO scale which is a pretty good match. You can get some pretty good suburban houses, restaurants, town halls and so on, which gives the game a much more realistic vibe.
Not walking dead from Khurusan
Rick and his partner explore a disturbance
Cheap ebay 1:100 cars from a Chinese seller, we_honest. These have been repainted and the lights added. Not a fan of see through windows or glossy paint jobs in this scale.
After a frantic week of painting, I finished my Orc team and pitch just in time for the tournament. I was generally happy how everything turned out. Numbers for the tournament were extremely poor, so it turned into casual games. I played my first game in at least 10 years, and really enjoyed it. Lucky really - probably should have played a few sample games before building a custom pitch and painting a team!
Completed pitch - a decrepit dwarven pitch rediscovers after many long years
Game in progress
Casualties mount up - hot tip, pay a visit to your local craft store, and grab some cheap felt. Red has been cut up to look like blood puddles, and it protects your minis from damage when lying down. I made generic grey ones for when the model was just knocked down.
My opponent's awesome humans
A mean foul play
Flank rush for a touchdown
Touchdown! (My first and only)
Will get some proper photos of the team up when I get my light box set up.
Inspired by Javier At War's amazing 6mm skirmish, and Angel Barracks inroads into 6mm skirmish, I have begun a small side project. The aim is solo In the Emperor's Name. I have a good bank of epic minis, which have provided the basis of the forces so far. Beginning with some imperial guard jump troopers
Next up we have some normal imperial forces
And now the really crazy stuff, 6mm inquisitor and retinue, including head and weapon swaps and some green stuff work. Marine is a converted Chaos Marine, he has a studded shoulder plate made with micro glass beads. Painted pics soon
Stock beast man, ogryn, bodyguard with shotgun and power glance, and the inquisitor himself.
Acolyte with bionic eye, preacher with eviscerator, ratling sniper (with sculpted head) and space marine
A very enjoyable scale to work at! Until next time,
