This last few days i have been powering through the G.I.S, i have painted 34 of 64 so i am getting there pretty quickly and these guys just take paint so easily! The photo above is the Brown and green contingent of the unit. For this box i have gone with the troop look with the addition of a skin tone highlight and also i shall be basing them which is something i do if the customer asks but is not included in the price usually. I wanted their bases to be a bit special as i beli […]

Still, the box is highly customizable (within the confines of boring men’s clothes), boasting “28 unique parts per sprue. 936 unique combinations! (Over 1800 if you don’t care whether the arm is bare or sleeved!)” At less than a dollar a zombie for that kind of “normal folk” variety, I can’t call this a “do not buy.” I certainly don’t regret getting it.
Material- Hard Plastic
Parts ‘N’ Bits- Right from the website, just to show you the variety you get:
The package includes 5 sprues that each contain:
1 x Dr. Zed (and/or duster/raincoat Zed)
1 x Fat guy torso
1 x Bare chested surfer-dude torso
1 x rotted shirt torso
1 x suit torso
1 x button down shirt torso
1 x drawstring short legs
1 x rotted long pant legs
1 x suit pants
1 x mailman shorts
1 x cargo pants
4 x sleeve right arms
4 x bare right arms
9 x heads
Assembly- Most of the joints are ball-and socket style, except for the arms, which match up flat. This allows for greater versatility posing the figures, but occasionally makes the connection points look a little awkward.
Bases- Alas, they do not come with any bases. But odds are, if you’re building a horde, you have some lying around, so no big deal.
Cons: Outdated sculpts and only one gender limits their value for smaller hordes
Slowly, but surely…Two more drones finished off the first pod (unit) of Martians. These were quick and fun to do. I even found a bit of red weed to add to the bases of one drone. I used the paper technique to affix the legs of the second and third dr…

I finished my last 33 Turk and Fernleaf soldiers this evening, just before the deadline. It was a huge privilege to be involved in the project.If you need catching up on what all this is about, Sir Peter Jackson has commissioned a diorama to be constru…
Hi All,Well since the response to my last post was so underwhelming, I’ll bore you with another. Here’s that figure from the Caeser fantasy adventurer set that I’ve used for a sorceress and a wind maiden of late in my games of Rally Round the King (RRt…
Recently Second Class Elitist, Ali Alcatraz and I were talking about a conversation he had had with a designer in the miniature wargaming industry. The crux of the conversation was about whether gamers care about the story, or fluff. 2…
Well, as you can see I’m actually back on the Dark Angels but progress is incredibly slow. I’m observing a slight derivation of my lack of mojo in that I really, really want to paint these models but just don’t have the energy. In part it has to do wit…

Not having played malifaux for long I have started on my resurrectionist crew. With games using so few models compared to warhammer It really got me wanting to get my crew painted. So this is where I have started, the punk zombies.
|New paint scheme|
Twenty-four green creatures. The miniature is from the 2006 FU-UK sculpting contest. It took me eight years to paint these. Pathetic.
The Eureka tachanka itself (the wagon, that is) comes together fairly easily with a bit of patience and some test fitting. The main body is a single piece, which I had to bend very slightly to straighten as the back end had been pushed very slightly downward during shipping. The rear springs and axle are … Continue reading Eureka’s Tachanka, Part Two →
Another model finished! It’s almost as if I have some mojo back! Well, almost. Anyway the Malanthrope is done.I actually lost my patience with this part way through, all those sacks and tentacles became a real chore so I splashed on the toxic glow effe…
|Probably the greatest tool in miniature painting history after the brush itself|
I know I have been radio silent for a while. Life intrudes. However, I finally had some time to hobby and I started on my loved, but put on the back burner, Necrons. With the dawn of the new book I got inspired to work on them. I haven’t played them si…
Enchantment WIP – Part 2 After yet some more slow days fiddling around the apartment and watching an unhealthy amount of crappy movies I picked up my brushes again and got some work done…
A bit of a mixed bag this week as I transition from one project to the next. I have the last of the 54mm AWI figures finished. This fellow is a mounted British officer.Despite spending a lot of time dry brushing to create the effect of a coat, the damn…
My last couple of weeks have included minimal hobby time, so I still have no new models to share. I have also been held back by a desperate need for resupply; I have several paints and other modelling supplies on order from various stores that I’m waiting to receive before I can progress my Astra Militarum vehicles. I could, of course, be working on my infantry, but I honestly just haven’t found the motivation to grind my way through painting mass Guardsmen.
