Bark at the Moon!

Really taking advantage of my mood to paint, even if it's just to clear off some minis that have been sitting around for far too long.

First up, The Blitzhund from Grindhouse Games:

Next up is another 'Weird War 2' miniature, this one made by West Wind.  It's from the Secrets of the Third Reich line, and is called a Jager Wolf.  I tried to keep this one a bit more generic, so he can be used as a werewolf in any setting.

It's just nice to start seeing my miniatures in paint, as opposed to looking at me sadly...

Here's a WORK IN PROGRESS as well:

Tentacles R Us!
 Very weird and cool Lovecraft inspired 'Son of Yog-Sothoth' by Tengu Models.  I've got the Tentacles attached, and need to do some putty work around the joints.  A very odd model.

Two updates in a week?

Hey! Got some more painting done, and put some finishing touches on a few that have been begging for attention.

Right to it!  All the pics are clickable, to give a better view!

This is a Grindhouse Games Mini, it's an evil dude called Hans.  He seems angry....


He'll be a nice addition to my Incursion games.

This guys' fluff has him as a deep sea diver, so I'll want to add some gloss varnish to make a 'wet' look, but damned if I could find any in my stash.  Ah well...  Maybe, he's good dry.

Next up is some 'Colonial Marines'.  I want to use them for both Space Hulk/Aliens type games, as well as the Marines from Halo, so I gave them a bit of a generic look.  These are from the very underated line from EM-4.  I wanted to keep the bases simple, so I've tried to hand paint a few panels on them, like the metal decking of a derelict ship.

Here are some Modern Day Marines from TAG.  Kind of a boring paintjob here as well. 

Here is some scenic elements with a zombie pulling himself out of the ground.  Armorcast is the maker of the scenics, and the zed is from Frothers:  Both are a nice addition to my zombie games.

And the crawler himself:

And finally a Work In Progress....A few bloodied zeds.  The two in the back are Studio Miniatures, the back and to the left is a Hasslefree, the two gals up front are TENGU.  I plan on using all these in a zombie diorama I'm making, but want the minis removable for gaming.

It's good to start clearing these projects up, to make room for the next ones....

Terrible attention span...

It's been a long time since I blogged and rolled...Well, that sounded better with Led Zep. music in my head....

Anyhow, not sure what the deal is, I just can't seem to see any projects through.  I was able to give a quick paint job of a Mega Minis (was Alphaforge and Demonblade) mini.  This prehistoric bird was part of the Demonblade line, and the owner at Mega Minis wanted to include it into his newly acquired Star Mogul (now Salvage Crew). 

I added a few parts from other models to get the rider a more Sci Fi look in keeping with the Salvage Crew Mephalians.  I think he'll make a cool addition to the rosters for the game. I also added some reins (made from paper).  I'm just digging the fact I finished it!

I do have about 1/2 dozen zombies 'almost' done, as well as about 1/2 dozen other thing.  Apparently, I have the attention span of a...ohh look a squirrel!

This just in!

A routine traffic report turns up something hideous.

Traffic copter reporter Skip Chandler indicated a snarl in the downtown traffic flow, following the snare, he's found a riot of sorts.

These are a bunch of my zombie minis set in the proper setting, an urban nightmare!

The cars are all 1/43 scale, from various sources, the 'scenery' is mostly from the World Works cardstock stuff.

Here's a group shot of the minis I've recently finished up.  They are all Griffin Minis.


Sorry about the quality of the pics.  I REALLY just don't get the photography thing, and to be honest, it's the most boring part for me.  I mean it's fun to post my minis and I want to be able to get feedback and such, but getting a good picture seems harder than having a fun time at the dentist...

Here's a few close up shots....This one was 'Shot through the Heart'....


Here's an old fella that got caught in his robe...

breakfast zed

I've got plenty of minis (and believe it or not, some aren't even zombies!) ready to paint, and I am really going to make a concerted effort to not only post more on the ol' blog, but also make a setup so my pictures turn out more like what the minis actually look like.

I'm also going to try and alternate the minis I paint.  For instance, zombies this week, maybe sci fi the next.  I've even flirted with the idea of Cowboy miniatures.

Anyhow, I hope someone out there is reading this.  If not, it's still a nice place to see some sort of progress in my hobby.

Until next time!

Time sure does fly....

Has it been that long since I've updated?

All I can remember of winter was this:

Lots of shovelling, coffee, repeat, and all of a sudden, it's spring!!!
Well, here's a few pics of my 'Incursion Stuff'.

The APES...The American troops in their armored battle suits.


The Zombies, twisted corpses of brave soldiers mutated by the evil Von X Family


Close up of 'Slugger Murphy' and the poor Russian Sailor/now zed


Got lots more 'in the pipeline'.  Many more Zeds, many more Weird War 2 goodies, and my new found love, Ghouls.....I promise it won't take this long for me to update!!
