6MMRPC 2.11 - Dark Age Zeds

This is probably the latest Zombtober post ever, but I swear, the painting was finished on the day before Halloween...dressing up the bases has just taken me awhile. 

These figures are from the Gripping Beast Revenants Box Set. Easy to paint and they look great when they're finished! 


Painted him to be an old king or noble. 


These two guys I'm incredibly pleased with how the skin turned out. I've taken to a new way of painting zombie skin - prime with Army Painter Necrotic Skin, then drybrush with Vallejo Air Dark Eart. I think it works well. 



I really like this figure for some reason!

These Revenants are going to see combat throughout my wargaming periods...probably not just against Vikings or Saxons. I'm thinking it'd be cool to have a plague pit be dug up somewhere modern and suddenly these buggers are infecting modern people. 

I know that for Zombtober I had said I wanted to get all 48 done...well, I've got 43 left to do haha!

Last but not least, I finished this - 

Giant Worm from Reapers Bones range. Will be used in post-apoc, horror, fantasy etc. games.

6MMRPC 2.9 First Finished Zeds for Zombtober

So here we are almost two weeks into Zombtober, and I'm just now getting this post up. Life has a way of throwing wrenches, but I hope you all like these offerings!

First up, we have one of my favorite of the excellent Studio Miniatures zombie figures - the walking dead in a body bag! What a great figure!




Then, we have my first finished Revenant from the Saga Revenent boxed set - A Revenant Monk!


And finally, a piece of scatter terrain for modern zombie games. I think this piece will fit perfectly with the Aid Tent I painted up last Zombtober!

A slightly washed out pic of some of the detail - blood in the grass etc.


Hope you enjoyed 'em!

6MMRPC 2.10 A Couple Finished Minis

These two have been finished for about 3 weeks now, but I hadn't varnished or dressed the base on the latter. So, I give you - 

My first finished Space Hulk figure! This was my first ever 40k figure painted, and I now have a boatload more ready to be painted...I think he turned out ok.

And this bloody crappy sculpt from the Reaper Bones range...supposed to be a Ranger Archer, I decided I wanted to add an "Arrow" figure to my superheroes collection. Covered in mould lines, and hardly any detail whatsoever, but I guess for the price of $2.49 I shouldn't bitch. Thankfully painting a mask on him helped with the fact that he didn't have any facial details. It'll do for gaming.

6MMRPC 2.8 ZOMBTOBER '15.1

Welcome everyone to my first Zombtober 2015 post! I've got all sorts of zombie goodness to work on this month, so we'll start with this pic of my overall workspace -


Yes there is a lot there. First priority is the 48 Revenants, 1 Necromancer and 2 Plague Pits from the SAGA Revenant box set. As you can see from the picture below, I've already started working on the metals.


Next up, a selection of modern zombies from Studio Miniatures.


I know these next ones aren't Zeds, but 4 Vampires and 7 Vampire Hunters, plus a few more Studio Miniatures Zeds.


And these are also Studio Miniatures Zeds, plus one Wargames Factory female zombie in lingerie, and a really fat Reaper female zombie.


Lastly, if I get Everything else done, I'd like to get the Reaper Bones Giant Worm and Steampunk Ape, and those 3 robots done for my post-apocalyptic settings done.


Think I've got my work cut out for me haha!

6MMRPC 2.7 - French & Indian War (3): Last of the Hurons!

I have finally finished my Huron War Party for Muskets and Tomahawks.  Took me far too long, but I'm very very pleased with how they turned out!  Sorry for the terrible pictures, I really need to make a light box.







The completed war party in the case!

6MMRPC 2.6 - Cinema Personalities

Hey everyone! I'm back with another late update. I think I'm approx 8 weeks behind in my blog updates...Sorry about that but life has been nuts and it's about to get worse.  My uncle was diagnosed with Stomach and Pancreatic cancer, and my son has been having more seizures lately so I've got lots of travelling ahead to go to specialists etc. Positive thoughts would be appreciated for both of them.

On to the hobby stuff.  These superheroes are from the Heroclix range, carefully removed from their bases and mounted on my own, then the paint was touched up in places and they were given a wash.  I think they will work fine.

Captain America and The Incredible Hulk

The Captain!

They made him angry!
I haven't figured out a ruleset for my superhero gaming as of yet, but I'm leaning towards either Pulp Alley or one of the Song Of stable of rulesets.  

Next up is this figure that was supposed to be Lori Grimes from the Walking Dead.  I decided instead to paint her as close as I could (and I don't think I succeeded) to Agent Myka Bering from the TV show "Warehouse 13" which happens to be one of my favorites.  She will be seeing action in all sorts of adventures in the pursuit of the strange and amazing.


Secret Service Agent Myka Bering

Here is a close up of the base -  I used my Basius Urban Basing Pad to make it. Love the detail, but I need to continue experimenting with amount of greenstuff I use. It'll do for now.

6MMRPC 2.5 - French & Indian War (2)

Well, here it is the end of August, almost halfway thru the challenge and I have hardly done anything to speak of. 

Now don't get me wrong, I have assembled over 200 more figures and undercoated them, I've organized my mountain fairly well, and I've done a lot of planning...just not much painting.

I did however finish these off today - 


4 Musket/Rifle armed Huron warriors

 
And these three bow armed Huron warriors. Only 6 more Hurons to finish and I'll be done with the warparty.

Below is my painting tray for the next several weeks -


Mix of more FIW, post apocalyptic, superheroes, and fantasy!

More updates coming soon!
