2015 Round-Up and Plans for 2016

In the spirit of Mark Level 2 review of the year here is my run down:

Painting was fast in Q1 but slowed down for a total of 94 figures

WW2 Yanks 26
Fantasy          34
Saxons          12
ECW                 9
Darkest Africa  6
WOTR               2
Cthulhu Horror  3
Modern Z's        2
                     94

Games played

Lion Rampant (4)
Songs of Blade and Heroes (3)





Darkest Africa using triumph and tragedy rules (see blog)
Sudan using TSATF
Chain of command
Space Hulk (1)
Frostgrave (1)



And a couple of club skirmish games, wild west and hostage rescue
Dr Who run by Mark
Age of Marlborough

And a few other at cons or on the weekends


Plans for 2016?

1) Fantasy - rebase my undead, and paint up more otherworld stuff including the dark elves currently on my table. Try the otherworld miniatures skirmish rules and dragon rampant.

2) Finish my Saxons for Lion Rampant - not many to go now and the end is in sight.

3) Play Strange Aeons, which I picked up recently hence the 3 cthulhu horror figures (more to come in 2016)


4) Matt varnish some of my older figures that look too glossy.

5) Avoid any more projects.

6
) Avoid buying any more rules


7) Maybe paint up that biker gang I have been promising myself for Dark Future/Zombie apocalypse.

New projects/rules


1) I did paint a few ECW for the Witchfinder General rules from Dashing Dice Games and need to pick up some foundry witches and paint a few more.



2) I have an urge to paint up the Rogue Trader 40k group for the rpg group, only 5 figures but certainly a divergence

Zombtober 3

A very brief update with one Studio Miniatures Modern Zombie painted this week,


Zombtober Information


The detail behind  zombtober can be found on Pulpcitizen's post HERE. (Also the source of the banner at the top.) but the rules are simple. To take part you just need to paint one Zombie or Survivor (or more!) each week, in any scale you like, posting it to your blog by the Sunday (we use Sunday's as the end of each Zomtober week). So that means one or more minis each week on or before the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th of October 2015.

Others chasing the dream are:-

Zombtober 2


My second post for Zomtober. M y aim will be to do more than the minimum but its a bit busy at the moment.




My second subject is an old Citadel Zombie C18 Deadringer square based although as I said I am toying with moving him to a circle base as most of my other stuff is already on circles. That is why there is no flock.

Painted the same time as the last entry he is newly dead with a normal flesh tone and dripping blood, with a lot of his skin torn off free showing skeletal arms.


Only took me some 20+ years to finally get around to painting.
