All things zombie

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.

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. 

Zombie containment team from Khurasan 
And some added firepower. 

Plenty more to come.

In the 'Epic' Emperor's Name - Part 2

Well some more progress has been made on my 6mm sci fi skirmish project. I have now completed the beginnings of my inquisitorial retinue 
Confessor Gaius, Inquisitor Aurelius Thor, and Brother Caprica, Imperial Fists veteran.

The Inquisitor. A conversion using a Commissar body, ratling head, green stuff bionic eye and hood. Ratling head will also make a great space marine sergeant head.

Chaos cultist body, commissar head, khorne beserker chainsword (eviscerator), and green stuff hood and shoulder pad

Imperial fist veteran converted from a chaos marine. Has a Corvus variant shoulder pad, made with tiny glass beads. Will post a conversion step by step soon.

The chaos models have excellent detail,
Particularly when compared to the original space marines. They have the added bonus of being 8mm scale, so look awesome and 'true scale' next to humans, perfect for skirmish games.

Next step is a deathwatch kill team, and some adversaries for them to fight against. 

Until next time,

Blood bowl pitch complete!

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.

Touchdown! (My first and only)

Will get some proper photos of the team up when I get my light box set up.

6mm In the 'Epic' Emperor's Name

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,
