Joe Carr and friends

Why so serious ? This has nothing to do with zombies this time. This is Batman the miniature game. Finally I have finished some of the models for my Joker crew. And got hold of a cool ambulance at a carboot sale.

The clown in the front is my small tribute to a character from a Rob Zombie movie. More to come on that subject. These are really great sculpts! And quite fun to paint. Next up in is these two clowns. The girl is actually not a clown but will be painted as a tribute to THE LORDS OF SALEM. Yet another Rob Zombie movie. The clown on the right started out with a bat. A mate of mine wanted him to have an axe instead but dropped the idea. I then gave him what will become a big candycane!

I have 4 other clowns waiting, a tiatnclown and Harley Quinn in my box. Slow and steady progress.

Oh! And I watched Mad Max FURY ROAD yesterday! My holy batshit is was action packed! Loved it! And need to see it again to get it all! Great movie with high octan! Recommended highly from me. Now to get back to painting...

Zombies

There are different kinds of zombies. Going from fast zombies, smart zombies and shambling zombies. Oh and radioactive ones as well... Which kind do you fear? "Oh I do not fear any of them! I know enough to battle them all!" I am sure you are correct. But that did not really answer my question...

For me it would be the Romero kind of zombies. Slow, shambling and unstoppable. Sure you can whack a couple if they get close, shoot them from afar... But there are more...And the slow unrelentless mass of undead hungering for your flesh will find you eventually. I think it is the prospect of having to fight the futility of them that scares me.

I was part of a weekend of HUMANS VERSUS ZOMBIES. Nerfguns. In this the zombies were fast, sneaky and many! My team (8 people) survived. But daaaamn the adrenaline was on constant alert to get pumped into my system! Good teamwork, a clear head and whiskey carried those days for us. At one time we were down to about 40 survivors and about to face 200+zombies. Thankfully our zombies were not really organized or we would surely have been joining them.

In my games I like to have all of them actually. Scary prospects in facing any of them. Like in the game of zombiecide. Walkers, fast zombies, fatty and the  big abomination. Worst case is when they are moving in a big group and you are fresh out of molotow cocktails..

Just a small rant from me here....Weather has been pretty decent so the garden has taken some of my time. Mead is still brewing. Gaming projects are not being ended....Sigh...

Cult uprising!

If the end is near, fuck it! Wear what you like! Like a baws! Er....Well...Damn....

So then.... The endtimes have come. Sure with all the zombies. But an alien precense have now chosen to reveal it self, or rather the cult of those devious powers! No, I am not talking about politicians.... I bought a starter set with some extras from Macrocosm (click the link) Actually it was an easter present from the little missus. 

Recieving the first batch I noticed 2 models that had not travelled well. A barell from a gun was snapped of and a club. I contacted the company and showed the pictures of the models. Must confess I was amazed by the customer service. Not only would he send replacements, he would also add some more as a way to apologize. We had a good talk about packaging in the future and the next one arriving looked like this:




MUCH better. Bubblewrap and taped to the box. Everything in good order now. And now I know you want to see the models... Well from the first batch there are some models missing as I divided them up prior to painting. But here they are:






Good sculpts and not much cleanup to do. He has free rules for his game on the shop Link to rules which I have yet to try out. And the plan is to expand the range with more races. A DIGGER CORPS is the second to join in. On preorder now on the starter set which will include an extra miniature. Quite cool models too. 

 Really love this suit! I can see him waddle along while grunting curses!

Some of their allies, brutish and just want to curvestomp you! These are on my WANT list too.


Now the guys I painted up here, THE MALIGNANCY , I plan to use as KILL TEAM, ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH and NECROMUNDA. Really like the look of them and will be looking for the upgrades for them too. I have a bit of inside knowledge and believe me when I say that I am looking forward to them!

Right now 13 white ghosts are waiting for a bit of paint. More brothers to THE CHURCH OF HE WHOM WE DO NOT SPEAK OF....MUCH!

What have I been up to?

Been a busy bee. We have had some good weather so the garden needed a touch up. Got hold of some free stones to use as flowerbeds.



Our pugs were keeping an eye on the job in order for us to make it a proper job! Well done!

And the mead is brewing.....

Really looking forward to this batch as it should hopefully be a bit sweeter in taste.

A shout out for THE SHATTERED CROWN come and join the facebook group and have your say. A fantasy game where you can design the Lord and his hearldry if you wish. And the coming models for it looks reaaaaally sweet too!
Chilling wargamers talk with Rich in this youtube video. And there is actually a mention of me ;-)
Please have a look at Simons blog BRUMMIE as he really goes into detail, well done mate!

And in other news, I made a bargain! This little game, all new for only £5 on collection!

And to give you a small teaser about what else I am up to....I got my easteregg! Macrocosm miniatures! Notgenestealercultatall !! For use in Across the dead earth, Necromunda, Killteam and his own game too. I will do a proper review later, these are to be painted first.

A bit of terrain and mead

This is IMPORTANT to know! Be safe out there!


Miniatures scenery is a company that does a lot of lasercut mdf. And I recently bought some of their stuff. Flatpacked, easy instructions on their website to how to assemble it and very affordale prices. I ordered along with a mate to save postage.


Boxes are really sturdy! And in the first picture you will see the 2 forklifts....In bits.... As mentioned, it was easy enough to put together. Still need to finish painting them but here is a picture as scale reference. Good size for my postapocalyptic games, Deadzone and Batman miniature games.
The lone survivor is a mini me. A converted miniature made by a fellow blogger Mathyoo . Please click his name and check his blog. Zombies are from Mantic Games (Deadzone). Worth checking http://www.miniaturescenery.com/ out. There are lots of great stuff. I have another small project from them, but that will first be revealed as it has been done.

No...This is not for smoking! Although I think you could but it will likely not have the effect you desire. This is for my mead. Along with a lot of honey. Changed a bit in the recipe so really looking forward to this one!

Take care out there...It is already a mad world we live in!

Rise of the old zombies!

"They are coming to get you Barbara!" A cybercookie to the first that gets the reference.  The reason behind this picture (beside the obvious) is that I got hold of some rare zombies. These are from the game of Mordheim. A fantasy skirmish game by Games Workshop. I have long been on the look out for them but mostly never been willing to pay the price. Well...I got an offer I could not refuse!

Top left a Sister of Sigmar. Top right a witchhunter. Bottom left a mercenary. Bottom right a Marienburger. If memory serves me well. Really looking forward to giving these a bit of paint!

I was supposed to do this blogpost yesterday...But I felt like a zombie.....I have not been bitten. No virus...Then what ? Oh....Right.... Concert and free beer for 2 hours!


I knew one of the bands playing and know the members too. So I got backstage to chill with them too. Oh...And free beer there as well. The band is a danish band called CHAINFIST. Check them out in this youtube video.

And now back to miniatures. Macrocosm is a new small company. But I already fell in love with their first starter set! Malignacy starter set. They LOOK like genestealer cult. But I am sure it was not intended to...
These will be on their way to me soon. Lone bought them for me as my easteregg!!! AND....If you preorder them ...Untill the 12th of April you will get a FREE miniature. One of these infested thugs! Actually you just need to buy for £25 but it just so happens that this starter set is at £25 !!

I will be checking the ruleset out as well for at first these guys will be used as a gang in ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH.

Zombiecide progress

So that week went by pretty fast.... But progress have been made! 14 zombies have been painted. They all lack a splatter of blood, but have yet to decide how much they are going to get.. They are actually quite fun to paint and you will see I had a bit of fun with some of them.


 The ambulance is from a fleamarket. Got it pretty cheap and it will work well in loads of games. We actually had 2 games of Zombicide, which we won! Had a blast, dice were with us and we actually made some tactics this time! Who would have thought that thinking a bit ahead would work?!

Untill next time....Stay safe out there!
