Walking Dead: Liam and Jim

Another pair of Walking Dead Survivors finished last night. These are Liam and Jim.

Lots of basic bright colours with highlights and drybrushing to bring the miniature to life, finished off with a light wash to give a bit of a grimy feeling.

I will be shortly in a position where I can start thinking about playing some games with Serefina. Think we will play together using the solo rules. I would be too scared to play alone!!!

Frostgrave: Ice Crystal Terrain

I have been making these off and on for some time now. Sometimes I get part way through making something and can't see where to go next with it. Now there may have been a time, many years ago, when I might have thrown what I had made away in a fit of pique, well not anymore.

These have been sat in a box, all cut and half put together because I could not see how I was going to paint them so they worked with my other terrain and my Pworks wargame mat.

I finally feel that I have solved that problem.

Five Parsecs-Necromunda: Containers

I made these as part of the terrain set I will expand on for the club, the Wakefield Warriors GC, but hit a bit of a cat shaped snag. Originally I made 10 of these containers but during the night, Paddy, our oldest cat, decided they needed urinating all over. Managed to save these 4 but since they are card and wood based the rest went in the bin (only right).

Thought I would make a variety of shapes and sizes of these containers, basing them on any off-cuts of timber I have knocking about the house. One thing I'm not sure about is whether I should clump them together on a base or leave them as individuals for greater flexibility? Perhaps the answer is a bit of both.

Walking Dead: Derek and Dale

A couple more miniatures from Mantic's Walking Dead All out War game. These are from Days Gone Bye, which is the set that allows you to create your own group of survivors and develop them over time. Not looked at the rules much yet.

Its nice to think I am finally getting through them all, I often think the idea of starting is worse than the actual doing: bit like doing the washing up

Anyway here we go. Here is Derek and Dale

Five Parsecs-Necromunda: Small Terrain Update

Completed the small terrain pieces for Necromunda last night, coated with a mixture of wood stain and PVA glue to sort of laquer the model. If you remember back to last week, I can just, they are made from odds and ends from my bits box.

I did want them to have a dirty used quality and infact I had to apply the stain and PVA twice because they were not grimy enough the first time round.

Some shots with miniatures to give an idea of size.

More with other pieces of terrain to see how they work together.

Couple of close ups.

I wasn't overly careful with the paint job as I wanted it grimy, although they might benefit from dribbly bits adding. Just to add some further character.
