Salute 2010

Well I made it back from Salute without any real major hassles, took part in the Hasslefree sponsored game (gunned down a load of zombies, ate an alien dog, mutated into a hulk creature, killed more zombies and aliens, then gunned down by a hazmat team.) and spent quite a bit of cash.

I managed to pick up a fair few new mini's and when Blogspot stops giving me upload errors, i'll get some posted.

Word Verfication

Just to let you all know, I disabled the word verfication on comments, so there should be no problems commenting, so yeah, you know...comment...

The Sin Twins

The Sin Twins, part of Newbold Worlds charity store, all money raised from the sales of thier Skoog miniatures goes to Children in Need, and thier miniatures are only released every few months, and they sell out fast, so i was lucky to get these two. Really happy with the paint jobs.

Maybe a pair of hookers for a Fallout style game?

The Bride

FreeBooter Miniatures Steampunk Lady (or as I like to call her, the Bride, at least until I get an Uma Thurman miniature..). I bought this last year and like all Werner Klocke's stuff, was terrified of applying paint, yet when I started she was a real joy to pain, all the tears and folds were fairly easy to paint, was no flash, the only niggle was the gun hand.

She comes supplied with the multi barreled pistol as shown, as well as a long hunting rifle, well for what I want the rifle was out of place so I settled for the hand gun. No idea what setting Im going to use her for, may just have to get into Steampunk or VSF....

Objectives and yet another Commissar

I've been intending to get into playing Necromunda and figured a good way to get in the mood while I gather my gang was to have a go at painting up some loot counters or objective markers.

Both of these are resin cast miniatures from Ramshackle games, but do to an accident going up the stairs, the power armored corpse (Gilgamesh I think his name is) flew out the box hit the wall and shattered, and I dont think I got him all back together. Anyhow he is to represent a forgotten piece of power armor or a heavy load lifting device. I really like the way the yellow turned out.

The mushrooms were actually included in a big box of resin miscasts i got from Ramshackle, and after reading up on the background fluff for Necromunda I figured it would be a good representation of spook fungus, a nasty drug in the hive city.

And here wave yet another Commissar (I only have one left to paint and then Im Commissar free.....unless I paint up my spare guard commander....). Another of the old Last Chancer models, this time Hero. Something really nice and simple to him, nothing really outlandish and Games Workshoppy, nice for a change.

Commisar and Sniper

I managed to get hold of a few more Last Chancer models a few weeks back and the quickest to start and finish was the sniper Scope. Now all I need are three regular guardmen to finish the sniper squad.

For the Commisar I tried a new color scheme and to be honest Im not totally happy with it and dont think I'll paint many more officers all white, though there is a reason for his uniform color. I intend to have him join the Talarn command group i have sat waiting to be painted.

ShadowRun Miniatures

Two old ShadowRun miniatures I picked up from a guy on the LAF forums (a great place to get 2nd hand mini's ftom). I just had to paint them up at the weekend and Ive finally got around to showing them off.

I intend to use them in a game setting Ive got rattling about in my head, more on that later....
