A day out with geeks and chicks!

3 geeks driving 2 hours to meet up with the fourth geek. The mission....Putting some paint on miniatures, gaming and having fun! What better way to spend a Sunday!! WARNING! There will be a lot of pictures!!

Rainy, windy and grey. NOT stopping us! Morten picked me up and we went to pick Christian up. He fell asleep after half an hour driving, which was no problem as we had fun in the front seats! Could have asked for a bit better weather but it was not to be....

Finally arriving at Lina and Stefan`s place! Weirdly enough I never got a picture of her.... They are both fighting for animal rights. The hens they have are all rescued from the big egg industry. REALLY a poor state they get them in. Most of the ones pictured have been some time here. In freedom, able to make a nest, have a dustbath, stretching their wings, and actually have feathers!!!


Really amazing to see how curious they are and really loving. If you had food...You were their best friend! Hehe... From the last batch they saved, they have kept one of them. You see her in here with a small sweater on. Due to the fact that she had next to no feathers left! This is where your eggs come from.


At night she got to stay in the hallway in this box.

After a nice breakfast we got the miniatures and paints on the table. It really is quite enjoyable painting together. At times we did not say a word yet still enjoyed it.


No idea what the hell Morten is looking after on the last picture....

To say that Stefan was a little excited about playing a game of DUNGER DERBY....Would be putting it mildly! Dunger derby is a small fast paced game that I made the rules for. Last year as we played it Stefan won and we crowned him NÆSBY DUNGER DERBY CHAMPION. Næsby is where they live. And naturally this year...WE CHALLENGED HIM!!!


Trying to stay in control of your mad animal, guiding it through checkpoints, staying clear of traps, not running in to terrain and knocking themselves out, fighting the other players.....Madness? THIS! IS! DUNGER DERBY! And damn fun!

Accusations of foul play, loaded dice, magnets in the table, and in the scenery.... I would like to say that this game requires great skill. But then...That would be a blatant lie!!!  Still I am proud to say that I am the reigning NÆSBY DUNGER DERBY CHAMPION! At least untill next time!

 This box has nothing to do with the rest of this blogpost besides the fact that it is Lina and Stefan`s little metal box. I just thought it was cool! Thank you guys for a great day out!! Loads of laughter and we actually managed to put paint on some miniatures as well!

Big thanks for having us and for putting up with 4 geeks Lina!!!

Coulrophobia

There is just something weird about them. Which might be the reason that I like them. The creepy side of them. From Pennywise of the movie IT to Captain Spaulding from the movie THE DEVILS REJECTS. 

Mad Clown Miniatures (Click this link) have hit the head on the nail with these miniatures! I have a crawler as well that I need to paint up but for now...I give you zombie clowns!

Not much clean up to do and I must say I love these sculpts! Now I wanted to show them of painted too but have yet to finish them. Sad clown.... But that just gives me an excuse to show them again!

No where near finished... Is it just me...Or do the one on the right remind you of JIGSAW ? Well still working on these.

AND....I got into BATMAN THE MINIATURES GAME. As some may know I am starting a JOKER crew up. Clowns....again....I know....

The clown in front is my tribute to Captain Spaulding. Oh boy....These still need a lot of work. But they are getting there... And more on the way to me. I could be quite tempted to use Joker`s crew as a survivor gang in ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH as well. You would have to be a bit mad to survive there....



Sleep well kids.......

Get the point?

So...Have you been painting miniatures lately? Well I bought more than I have painted. Which is rather bad as I have a friendly bet going with Christian. So far the score is:
Christian +6
Johnny -13.5

Yes.....Rather bad standing for me...Through January I have had no real time to sit down and paint. Mangaed some though....But I managed to buy a lot of miniatures as well!!! Currently I am painting up some miniatures to be used in the game of BATMAN. And they take a bit more time to do. You will notice they are on the custom bases I made.

Giving these a bit more attention.  The gang will number around 8 to 10 models  so it is worth giving them an extra touch.

Now....I had something else lined up to say here...It got deleted due to pressing news.... We went to a fleamarket/carboot sale...










Empire, Orcs, chaos warriors, Goblins and dwarves. And aparently there were some bretonnian archers, woodelves and quest miniatures as well. A bargain price but...I am royally fucked!!! Christian has assured me that we might come to an agreement. As much as he wants to win our bet, he would also like the competition.

A bit of terrain

Could be fun to do a rundown McDonald diner as a terrain piece.... But for now I made a small one.

At the Across the dead Earth gaming group on Facebook we had a friendly competition. Make a piece of terrain no larger than a cd. January has been a really busy month for me as you might have noticed. So I was not sure if I would get the time to make an entry.

This Monday I started it...And finished on the deadline TODAY!!

Diecast BMW some tires and a piece of a skeleton. Hmmmm....I wonder if....


















When the MOJO hits....I actually can be quite fast to get things done. And this was a fun little build too. Below is the result which I am quite pleased with.











Take care out there....

Work.....More work !

No hobby work done to show off. A bit of paint here and there but no end results. Reason being is work. As some of my regular readers will know the store I work in have changed location. And through January we have been busy in packing and cleaning the old place and getting ready in the new place.

This is part of the new place. Picture taken yesterday (Saturday) and we plan to open this coming Saturday. Oh right....We juuuust need to unpack all the new clothes, pricetag them, get them up on hangers or on tables. Plus getting those mannequins dressed. And we still need some electrics to be done and the mirrors to be put up. We will make it.... Of that I am certain! But it does cut into my hobbytime!

Yes...We have a pooltable. And darts too !
And we actually have some golfclubs too....You know...Just in case the zombie shoppers turn up!! Take care out there, hobby related stuff will soon return to this blog.

"All your base are belong to us!"

"All your base are belong to us" started from an old Sega Genesis game called Zero Wing. Now mostly used as a geek reference whenever someone talks about basing their miniatures or talking about bases in general. And that is what I plan to do in this blogpost.

I wanted to make some city/urban bases for my miniatures of BATMAN the game.Sure you can buy resin toppers and resin bases, but I wanted to do it myself. A bit of scrounge in my bits turned up a lot of treasure for this to use as litter on the bases.



I beam in plasticcard and some rubber tyres from a toystore. (Thanks Christian for those) and greenstuff. Then it is only your imagination that stops you. If that is the case then please take inspiration from me or take a look at some of the fantastic bases made out there.

Smooth the greenstuff out and press something down into it. Here I have used some plastic mesh. Bits of a coffee stirrer and a bit of the I beam cut to an angle. Do make sure the greenstuff is a bit wet to make sure it will release whatever you press down int it again.

This one was a big guy and i actually cut the slot open again to keep his own part of the base. All it needs now is a bit of pva glue and sand. The other miniatures will have the slotta cut of and then pinned to the base. More to come of this.

Come to think about it then you can use whatever you want to press into the greenstuff. If it has a good texture, find a rock and roll it easy over it. If you do not like it then just smooth the greenstuff out again and try something else.

What are you waiting for? YOU CAN DO IT!

Lucky find and painted miniatures!

KAPOW! Holy batshit Batman!
This could be fun to try out... Well I think I got lucky at a small local sale. Amongst old books and pottery with flowers on....I found a black car and a fireengine. 





 As for that black car, I have had some people look at it and they agree that this is the 1966 model. The small plastic in the glass jar are to be shot out of the tubes, which are in working order. The small batmobile was part of the deal. The small one is from HUSKY and the big one is a Corgi Toys.


Merryweather Marquis fire tender from Dinky Toys. Good in scale and with the steering wheel in the right. We in Denmark (and most other places) have it in the left side. Just about full metal! I will most likely use it in zombie games but at some time I will give it to my older brother who collects fire engines. 

All cars.....£15. I do believe I made quite a bargain!


14 Genestealer hybrid cultist done and painted! That gives me 7 points and since I have bought other models this year...I will be at a +2.  Not bad when I finish the forgefathers and the zombies too. Keep the pace up and I might be able to keep it positive !

The latest project, I have some models that I will give a bit extra care. These are still a small secret but I will show some progress on my custom bases for them.
This was actually quite easy to do. Going through my bits box I have other things to put on as well. Just need the miniatures to be placed first. More to come on this.
