Zombie horde and a winner

So it would seem you would like me to make some zombies again. So would I actually. Yesterday evening I started the horde. This will be used in my Kings Of War undead army and I thought I would make a more scenic base. In KOW you do not remove single miniatures, you simply note how much damage it has taken.

From a previous purchase of stuff I bought, I got hold of a Corpsecart from GW more or less intact. For some time I have had my eye on it but refrained from buying it as I had no really use for it. Well...I do now.

Bring out your dead!!!! Not sure yet if I should place a zombie at the tailgate. Rest of the zombies  will be made up of Mantic games zombies and ghouls. The ghoul parts look like zombies anyway. So now to assemble and chop of the base they are on.

And the look so far. First of all, the small black grave marker will be put in front and middle. This is for the game so I have something to measure from concerning lines of charge. Need to add some crawlers too and most importantly...A proper movement tray. I have ordered some from Wargamemodelmods . And will use them throughout my army. Oh and by the way, go check out his kickstarter for industrial GLOWING terrain with this link INTEGRATED-WARGAME-BUILDINGS

And now.....As promised...A winner for a goodybag from me!

 Be safe out there and remember to DOUBLE TAP!

What next? Is up to you!

Vacation is over. Though I still have a week of later. Mostly a fantastic one. This summer has been spent visiting Berlin (And gaming with Christian) 2 weddings and mead. Yes this Saturday we went to another wedding. Not just an ordinary wedding. This was their cake! Half of it Batman and the other half white and traditional.


If you look closely you will see the groom has Batman cufflinks on. So had we who were his groomsmen. A fantastic wedding with two lovely people. This was where it was held, Frederiksborg slotskirke. A church in a castle.

And now it is back to work. Also in gaming. But what will be next? What do you want to see? You get to choose, well...The majority will get to. 

First option is a scenic regiment base with zombies for use in KINGS OF WAR.
Second option is another lasercut building.

Voting for this will end this coming Saturday the 22nd. And of those of you that vote I will randomly draw one to recieve a small goodybag from me. 
Well that is actually it this time. Really have been busy with real life. Hope you all are doing good outthere.

Berlin and battle

Me on the left and Christian on the right, just before our battle in Berlin goes down! ACROSS THE DEAD erath with me playing THE STATE and Christian playing The ADDAMS FAMILY.  I left Yoshi of the team in order to not have so many points. But before that...I did not just come to do battle.

We went to Berlin for vacation, to see art in museums as well as streetart. Ofcourse Checkpoint Charlie and some of the leftovers from the cold war too. Christian was really cool to let us stay at his place. A cool apartment when it wa up to 40 degrees celcius in Berlin!!!

 Batman ! Streetart in its finest!
 Admiralsbrucke was a meeting place for everybody with a beer. 
Cool place and nice atmosphere.
 As a representative of THE STATE I was out to take field notes in Berlin as well.



The stay in Berlin was great, again a big thank you to Christian for being a great host/guide and allround cool guy! You made us feel welcome and helped out a lot! And showing us where to get good food! Great burger on the first evening!

Now....A bit of a backstory before the fight. Christian and I had a small competition between us. Trying to paint some miniatures and not buying as much. As it was I really was the loser. I blame it on the SHINY MODEL SYNDROME. However...With the help of Rich from ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH I send him a gift. To arrive before I arrived in Berlin for our fight, this is the picture he posted as he got the parcel.
 Now pictures from the fight. It was really fun and ofcourse we had mead! My own brew that I brought along for Christian. (Wonder if he has drunk it all now?)

 The battlefield with beer and rules at the ready ofcourse!
 And the chilled mead!

I took out Reggie with a snipershot, and promtly got taken out by his sniper!!
 
 NO!  You do not drop a rock on Jester!
 As Jester finished of Ezra, this was the reaction I got from Christian!
So happy for Squint, he got Siwoc up again! Though as the game was over, Siwoc was lying down again!!  In this picture Skylar tosses her grenade at Squint hoping to catch them both in the blast. What actually happened...She dropped it! The blast resulted in all 3 getting caught and...Nothing happened!!!
 
I ended up winning the game but it was really fun throughout. Big thanks to Christian for being a good gamer. The STATE is in control of Berlin! Well...Kreuzburg. Erm...Well...On paper...Erm okay... We left our mark!!!
 
And with that  this blogpost comes to an end. 
The stay in Berlin was great, again thank you to Christian. 
And by the way...Watch out for the zombies! 
I took this picture at Kotbusser Tor station!! A zombie chasing some innocent girls!!

Terrain kickstarter...With lights!

Kickstarterlinky 

Click the link below the image to get to the kickstarter. This is really coooool! I can see so much potential in this. And yes...I have pledged. I have the ruins set amongst others from Wargame model mods and I really like them. Fits well together and looks cool. Now with added lights. Oh yes please!! 

There will be a review later with one of the buildings but time ran out of me so can not show it now. 

I am about to take a small trip to Berlin and fight a game (or two) of ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH with Christian. Oh...And I get to see a bit of the town as well ;-) Really looking forward to it. Better finish packing!

Now go check that kickstarter out!!

Back from the dead

Crazy busy with things. Yesterday we had a stagparty for a fantastic mate of mine. There was whiskey...Heavy metal...Good food and excellent company. Though I myself must admit I am not the partygoer I used to be. Getting my corpse out of bed today took the works of a necromancer!

And now that I am talking about raising the dead.... My first fantasy army was the undead. Though it has been put away, some has been sold, it has never reeeeally gone away. And you already know of my love for zombies. Now then, with the new Kings of war ruleset from Mantic coming out I thought it was time to have a dig around and raise an army again. Much is from Mantic games itself as lots of my GW was sold.

 Several vampires, mounted wights and a zombiedragon will soon be raised from their slumber. Oh and some conversion to a corpsecart in order for me to incorporate it into a zombie regiment. Now I look at this...I seem to have forgotten to put the zombies up. 

The shrine you see will most likely end up with some Revenants. And where in the name of Arkhan the black did I do of my ghouls?? Well parts of my army are obviously still hidden or buried somewhere....

I am also getting some gangs ready to take with me to Berlin. Gangs from ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH .

I will be facing a resident dane by the name of Christian Birk, a known stalker of mine. We will be going to visit him and his lovely girl Maj. And the gauntlet has been thrown ! Bragging rights! And mead! I hope to make a bit of a battle report of it and put up here.

Just a small update on what I am up to. Take care out there in the real world. And watch this space for a product review soon!

Henchman/evil overlord.

I am a LOOTER. Lootcrate sends me geekystuff once a month. One of those parcels was with the theme of COVERT. By following a link on the box itself you were put through some questions and leads from what you got in the box. I made it and recieved this.

 Am I evil? To some, oh yes! But I tend to make up for it by being a good guy too. But as an evil mastermind I needed some minions to boss around...

 And I am in the process of painting them at the moment. There are more in the pipeline for this set, one with a rocket launcher!!! Oh I need more!!!

I will not jump on the bandwagon and slander Games Workshop for what they have chosen to do with the fantasy line. I have played loads of fantasy games mainly with undead forces but also Empire and Bretonia. I have however not played a single game in the last 2 editions of the rules. So that really means I have no right in being mad by what they do. And I am open for trying the new rules just for a bit of fun. And then most likely going back to playing WARLORD by REAPER MINIATURES or KINGS OF WAR by MANTIC GAMES. 

If gamers think it is over with Fantasy, please think a minute or two and get some common sense. Do not go of burning your miniatures. (You daft twat). Just stick to playing the edition you like. Or use them in other types of games. Or sell them so you can back this fantastic game:


Really.... This is a fun game to play. Go check them out at kickstarter link
Stags and warbears. What is not to like? Sure...You do not have other races like orcs and undead, but really...You get plenty of that from Kings of war. This is with an easy set of rules and as mentioned before but never enough...It is fun!

I got hold of the free miniatures with the current white dwarf. And did this:



 Now I can have true scale chaos marines. Works really nice. Not sure if I want to make more than just a kill team though. 

Times have been a bit stressed for me, thus the lack of updates. Sorry about that. I was best man for my best friend and it took a lot to get that right. Making sure their day was great. 


 A lovely day/evening/night. Really fantastic. I wish them both all the best for the future!!

The warehouse district. Part 1

Impudent Mortal ran a Kickstarter to get his new line WAREHOUSE DISTRICT up and going. Well as you have seen in a previous post I pledged to get a full table. Now all I needed was to build it, paint it and game with it. 

Falcon warehousing and storage. A building which is quite big was the first I started on. As I organized the bits I was a bit overwhelmed. This is just part of what you get. Acrylic windows in the top is a cool addition to this piece of terrain.


Instructions can be found on Impudent Mortal webpage. And they were quite easy to follow. Though at one time I had a piece where I had no freaking idea where to put it. I will explain later...


Next time....I will use our dinner table. Needed a bit more space. It fits really wel together and there is not much cutting to do. And....NO! I did not glue myself to the building!

TADAAAAAAAAAA! Miniatures for scale from Across the dead earth. Wait ...hold on....Is that a break in? 

I have later stuck a little piece of mdf in to look like it is holding it up.
Details are really great. Now I will be using it both in Batmangames and post apoc games. So there will be a bit of weathering and neglect but not overly overgrown. This is also due to the fact that I can store it like the next picture.

I have started painting it but it will be a longer process. There are also the windows missing and the railings. I want to paint it before these are attached. And by the way...See that piece beside the miniature? That was the one that got me puzzled...


That little piece that got me puzzled...I had to write to Walt who is the mastermind behind Impudent Mortal. And after he pulled my leg he revealed its secret to me. Now I feel a bit stupid. What an absolutely great idea!!! Look for yourself!

There will be loads more to come from this project. The birth of a new citytable. So stay ready as I progress and build more from this! (And paint it)
