Kings of war undead

This albumcover has always been a favorite of mine. Though I never had the record myself come to think about it. The geek in me saw the lichlord holding a meeting with his necromancer underlings. Plotting the next steps to take in corrupting the kingdom of men.

Now onto the army. A friend of mine (ROGZOMBIE)  asked me the other day about Mantic games skeletons.  So I dug them out an send a picture or two. Then had a look at my army and thought I needed to expand it a bit. Yeah I know...Another one of those projects (See my previous blogpost).




Zombie trolls. Actually ordinary trolls which unerwent conversion work. Missing jaw, knife in eye, replacement of arm and a leg. Oh and the coffin hehe... New recruit!
 

 
The lovely zombies! Emerging from the swamp Hungry for that tender meat you have!



 Go ahead and charge us! The spear armed skeletons have been able to weather alot of attacks and then hit back with a vengeance!



 Now we mention charging! This really hurts when they hit! And being sneaky I often have the necromancers to help deliever them onto a flank charge!


 Klaatu! VERADA! .......... Thinking of putting one on a flying beast. Hmmm... I had some wraiths too but was not happy with the models. Need to work out something else as I really do like wraiths in my army.

And today I recieved an addition to my army! Just not sure what to play it as. A regiment of cavalry perhaps?

Going between 50 and 80 %

Time to adress this problem. I have loads of projects going on. From my IMPUDENT MORTAL terrain, Praetorian guard 40k, The Walking dead miniatures through to selling some surplus and abandoned projects. And aaalways...There is a damn cool kickstarter that will catch my eye!



 I want to do it all! Paint them, convert it, play games! I do get some games in between. A good friend of mine Kenn has an everstanding challenge with me in DEADZONE.
 Really really love this game. Mostly due to the mechanics, but the fact that it is easy to set up and put away again do have some big points! Scenery picture here is from Kenn. You can spot his tummy and hands in the upper of the picture hehe.

My setup to painting some of it has been done. And I am quite pleased with it. An old display setup from Emporio Armani underwear works great for my needs!



 A bit more clean up has happened. Sold more of my old miniatures in order to make room plus fund my kickstarter addiction. So in short....I am okay. Just need to finish a project...Or 12 !!

Post apocalyptic riding in style


It is coming...Ever closer....So might as well have a ride! Car or bike, entirely up to you but I have made my choise. The KICKSTARTER is live now so to get the good deals go help them reach the target!

And more to come, bikes too. You can already add a bike as add on. Or one of their starting gangsets. The models are really cool. I have several of them and they fit so great in postapocalyptic gaming.

Here are a couple of examples painted by me. Yes...They have bacon! Oh wait...Pigs...They have pigs!

 And on top of it...Hyacint games are quite nice guys. I will likely add more stuff than just cars. V8 engines reving ! This...Is going to be bad....In a good way!

Don`t get left behind in the dust! BE SHINY AND CHROME!

Into the DEADZONE

"Hey Johnny! How about I demo the new rules for DEADZONE with you?" Sure, I have the models for it. A buddy of mine Kenn threw me back into this game. And I must say the new rules, especially command dice have made it so much better! 

And these are just the ones that have been assembled. I also have Marauders, enough painted to do a strike team with much more waiting to be put together. However.....I played the Enforcers in the demogame. Never gave them much thought due to me having Plague and Marauders. But they were quite good. And...Since I was onboard both the Kickstarters I had practically an army of Enforcers just waiting for me. 

I put together a small list and got going. Undercoat, basecolours, base is done. The above picture shows me drying the base stuff. It was raining today... They are ready to use on the battlefield but I would like to add a bit more to them. Blood on bases, weapons...But quite fun to do a speedpaint once in a while.

Tomorrow I will go to battle against Kenn again. This time I am bringing the plauge and I think he will be using Asterians. Looking forward to it as not only is it a good game, I quite like to play against Kenn. And no...Not just because I won last time ;-)

Meet the boys! 150 points of nasty stuff!

 And objective markers quickly done.

Underhive gang for Necromunda

"Welcome to the Underhive. This is where you either win or die! Let me give you a friendly advice... Make sure you always have a backup weapon and do not trust anybody!"
Unknown exganger. He was found dead the next day. Suicide by 4 shotgun shots to the back, 22 stabwounds and his head has not been found yet.

Progress on my Orlock gang. Not finished painting them and I am considering how to do the bases. But here they are.

 
 From left to right: Cleon, Swan, Ajax, Vermin, Cochise and Snow.

From left to right: Cowboy, Rembrandt, Fox and Mercy.

I am trying out darker skin. Never done that before, can not say why actually... But here goes. Quite happy with how they look so far. Looking forward to getting some highlights on them.

Some of you....May have noticed a theme. The names may have rung a small bell in the back of your minds.... There is a deeper meaning to that. And thus the name of my gang.

The first one to acurately say where I got the idea to this gang from, and their name, will get to name this scummer who is getting a bit of paint too.


 Now if you will excuse me, I need to get myself stuck to a piece of terrain. Well...Try to make some walkways.

Back in the underhive

Necromunda. A planet wracked with pollution. People are crammed into Spires (city containing up to a bilion). Ruled by a top cadre and the lower you go...the worse it gets. And that is where we are going.

My club is starting to rttle the chains about a Necromunda campaign. So I dug out my miniatures. The trusty Orlock gangers, Spyrehunters, Cawdor and pitslaves. Which faction to choose this time? 

I went with my trusted Orlocks. They needed a new paintjob though. As well as some personaes you can hire. Scum, beastmasters, ratskins and that sort of shady looking people.



I have a theme for my gang and names for the first 10 models. More on the theme and names in a later post. Now this old hiverat need to delve back into the old lore of Necromunda and get a gang painted.

Dead and dwarf !

Zombies....Now so mainstream that there is a tv-show and miniatures game for them. Oh yes...I have that game! Already started painting some of the zeds. Here are some progress pictures.

 Mantic games, the walking dead game

 Yeah....These 8 walkers hid beneath the cards! So they have not been undercoated yet!

And here the first 6 of them painted. I have tried to keep the zombies as in the comicbooks. Black and white. Yet painted their clothes as a nod to the tv-series to link them together.

MACROCOSM did a Kickstarter for some Dark dwarfes (One might even call them chaos dwarfs) and I got in on it. Well...They looked cool as Chris does a fantastic job on miniatures if you ask me. And prices are absolutely affordable. So here goes to yet another small army.





 Take care guys
