Escape to the Country - Part 2

Having your own gaming space does have it's advantages, it means you can keep the table set up to continue where you left off. So part 2 of our walk in the Worcester countryside.I am sure those sneaking dead fella's had crept forward since last week....As we saw in part one as the dead increased their grip on the urban areas, the living were forced into the countryside for supplies and protection from the risen. But nothing brings the dead shambling your way than loud noises. So you can imagine what the blast of a shotgun will do.Things start badly for the cops, stuck in a fight to the death the Sarge yells for help and is joined by his unit including little Timmy who clearly got carried away swinging his crowbar into the cadavers unfortunately he is brought down by the rotting mass.The Sarge gets away dragging an unconscious comrade as the dead munch down on poor Timmy.... Welcome to turn one. Gulp....Meanwhile whilst the forces of law and order look to restore law and order the nasty bikers continue to rob

Frostgrave: Zombies

Since I intend to play a necromancer in Frostgrave, I might need some zombies sooner or later, which will be awakened by the master and his apprentice. As luck would have it, Chaosbunker boss Dennis had a few Mantic Games zombies left over and I always wanted to see what you could get out of […]

The Return of Karloth Valois

Carlota Valois, is the stuff of legend... or... nightmares... or legendary nightmares!? A frightful tale that's passed into legend that parent tell their children to frighten them but no one actually believes anymore... Until he returned from the deep dark depths of THE ABYSS...We had to cancel Tuesday and Wednesday due to illness... and Thursday... well... still ill... but while I am experiencing some intense discomfort, I'm not all that contagious, so we forged ahead with another game - which was a great way to take my mind off of things!Instead of doing something simple for our second game ever, like an out-of-the-book scenario or something, I decided I needed to make something up on my own that was a bit more complex to start play-testing some ideas for the Necromunda game weekend in October!This scenario involved the return of Karloth Valois - a rogue psyker, long thought dead - along with a horde of Plague Zombies! I'm not going to type out the specifics of their stats or abilities or what all the victo

Last Days

Osprey’s Last Days is a great Zombie game, a few bands of survivors battling against each other and any random undead attracted by the noise. Mad Lemmey’s ruined Petrol Station from TT Combat is a great centre piece to set up a board around. In this game we had several gangs coming from different edges to grab some swag and make off back to their bases. I really need to get some proper survivor models rather than the random assortment of figures I am using, Hasslefree do a great range, Mad Lemmey has a nice selection including (below) a kid with dustbin lid and club, a Kev with an axe and PC Dibble. And don’t get me started on his Young Ones models, a set of which he very kindly painted and presented to me some time ago!

7TV Zombie Apocalypse

Using a combination of the 7TV apocalypse rules and markers from the 7ombie TV game (thing Apocalypse 1st edition) I ran a scenario where 2 casts of survivors searched a country road pile up for supplies.A road well and truly blockedThe markers are zombie spawn points (rules taken from 7ombie TV)Our first group of survivors. A group formed from Welsh Rugby Union supporters, fanatically keen to ensure Rugby Union doesn't go the way of civilisation.At the other end of road fans of the Cornetto films and Tin Tin set off The film lovers disturb the first zombiesThe Rugby survivors advance cautiously.Zombies dispatched our heroes move on searching the vehicles as they goThe rugby fans attract attention but knock the zombie down, but got too close and got a does of radiation Both teams are rather handy with their guns which attracts zombies from the woodsThe rugby fans search thoroughly e.g. find nothing and keep rolling for something in the same vehicles The film fans start attracting alot of attent

Start Of The Week - The Weird Wild West

When I started blogging I was all about 15mm miniatures. Most of what I had done over the years has been 28mm but I was finding that I liked 15mm minis better. Then I started painting 28mm again for some games I was playing in or running myself. Which I how I got into painting stuff for the Wild West, specifically for Deadlands: Reloaded.Back then I painted about a dozen of the figures I had before the game fell through. Since then they have mostly been sat around. Now I have the urge to paint some more oddball stuff again so why not cowboys and zombies. Oh and Mexicans and Indians and eventually everything else. Maybe at some point they could be a project in the future.So now for a painting plan. On top of the twenty wild west figures I have already done I have another twenty to do.They are a mixture of Artisan Designs and Wargames Foundry I think. I am going to look at doing them in batches of ten with the Indians and the few remaining western types to do. Then the next batch in some Mexicans and some harro

End Of The Week - So Close (3)

The first week of Easter hasn't been such a bad time. It's been quite good in fact. Having sent my mate on his way on Monday the week has been a fairly busy one. I have even managed to get a few quick games in at a new board game cafe called Board Beans which seems like somewhere I will be spending a while. I like my board games and they do a good hot chocolate and an IPA made out of cornflakes. What is not to like. For the most part I have done right by The New, New Cruelty so not such a bad week. If have kept up with my blogging, exercise and have not spent the day surfing.The downside is that I haven't finished much but I have finished some stuff. Three fantasy era zombies. These have been around for a while and I haven't really painted them because I have plenty of zombies and they don't fit in with the rest of what I have. I have no idea where they came from and I guess they have rarely been far from the bench for about four years. The New, New Cruelty is not very happy with me.I say "So Close" beca
