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

Still alive !


First of all an apology to those of you that actually follow my blog. It has indeed been too long since I updated. I have not been sick, nor any in my family. But I have been busy. Mostly with work. Have this blog been missed by you guys?

 Here on my way to a heavy metal concert. It was awesome! Met up with some from my old "gang" but could not do the afterparty. I had work the next day.

There is a lot on my "to do" list. Zombies, skeletons, a terrain piece for ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH, Nagash (Lord of the undead) and here in the new year I actualy did something too.

I present to you...THE BONEWHEEL. Foremost in use as a scenario objective in Frostgrave but could easily be in other settings as well.



 It is a halloween decoration, well it was untill I got my hands on it!


 Wodden beads , string and bits from the bits box. And now we have tied up prisoners pleading not to be sacrificed! MWAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!

A solid base or it gets wobbly. Yes...It fell over a LOT! The wodden thing is something you use for knitting..Apparently...

And a bonus picture of my messy work area. This is actually pretty clean from what it use to look like. And some other projects too...





 

Take care out there.

Cheap terrain !

Welcome once again to my wasteland. Now then... My mind has been into Frostgrave for some time and I miss the post apocalypse universe a bit. And as I was sitting and thinking up ideas for underround terrain in Frostgrave... Well... It could be quite usefull in Post apoc games as well.

The above photo is from WWII and shows a bombed out part of a city. Much what I think a post apoc wil look like too. Sure there will be some buildings that are mostly intact, but some parts will not. 

White foam (correct name in english has escaped me. not quite isolation foam) A foam cutter, paint and a girlfriend willing to help out. This really did not take any time and was dirt cheap. I already had the foam.



 Alot of the paint on this is Lone, my girlfriend who did this. I was the cutter and master builder.

  The mat is fantastic! And you can get it from URBANMATZ  
Mousemat material which is water repellant. I like it a lot, also the clatter of dice is much more quite. Check them out as they have mats in sizes from 3x3 to 4x6. Plus a LOAD of designs!

I will likely use it in Frostgrave too, but you can be sure these ruins will see action in games of ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH . Many of the miniatures in the folowing pictures are from that game. Fast paced and fun, easy to learn game.





 The last 2 miniatures seen here are from EM4 miniatures. I would use a lot more scatter terrain if it were a real game. This has just been set up in under 5 minutes to show it of. And that is the beauty of it. Scatter terrain in a box. Mat rolls up nicely and the ruins packs quite nicely flat in a box. Minimal storage.

Go for it yourself. The gaming board looks sooo much better with some terrain on it. Not just a Mountain Dew can as a watchtower and 2 books as a hill. And paint your miniatures...They fight better (mostly). Which reminds me...I have 2 gangs from Across the dead earth which I have yet to paint.... Whoops....

Take care out there

Winners and update

There were a lot of great names for the battle snail! And I do hope that some of you backed the project to get hold of one yourself? I had a hard time trying to decide...So I did not. I asked Lone (My beautifull girlfriend) to pick 2 she found funny.

Carl Packham and his Snailey McSlimetrail
Ian Riley and his trusty Shelly the Slug.

Congratulations guys. Get in touch via lordsiwoc@gmail.com to get your prize.
And the rest of you go check out WASTEMAN to get hold of some awesome miniatures too!

 This is Vera, our 10 year old pug. Loving and sweet. She was in surgery last week. A smal puncture in her right eye. And she had her eye sewn shut. We are going to the vets later today to get the stitches out and hopefully check that everything is okay.

 My computer is really acting up. Not sure if it "just" needs a good cleaning of the insides or it is turning into a zombie. But it is the main reason that I could not post this on Sunday.
