Been Busy

Over the last two weeks I have been very busy so the hobby side has hit the back burner.

I have been working on some bases for my studio miniatures zombies. I am currently filing the bases supplied with model clay which hardens in 24hrs and either marking some groves to represent paving slabs or topping with sand to represent ash felt. The Z is then removed from his slotta tab and pinned to the base before undercoating.

Additionally I have been painting up some otherworld Kobolds which I built and based some time ago. The figures were stuck to the usual slotta base and then the base was covered with non branded wall filler. I then cut some random groves in the base to represent stone work before undercoating.

The figures are quite nice but come with separate hands/arms and can be quite fiddly to stick together.

Mark (wardy-la) mentioned he liked this figure so here’s a painted version done some time ago

I have also taken delivery of a bag of Cthulhu and plan on painting a few of these up (eventually?)

Fab stuff Andrew!
Love the old 'dilletante' figure too, thanks for posting that. I really need to repaint my one. Looking for ward to seeing -
a) a mass of painted zombies
b) bag of cthulhu - they almost look like they don't need a paint job from your pic!
I have also set up a new blog for our 'zombie project' so you should have an invite to add stuff to that.

Dragon - Part Two

Very limited progress this month.

I have cleaned up the base dragon but have not yet started pinning. In respect to the base I added some green stuff to give the impression the treasure was piled up on a dungeon floor.

New set of Mordheim Buildings

Last month I finished off my second set of GW Mordheim buildings. Both sets now complete, just need to get around to playing some games.

A corpse of Vampires

Back before it was trendy I loved Vampires, the scary, evil serial killer types. Not your more modern shiny, vegetarian reformed serial killer types who have human girlfriends and deny their true nature. Think Salam's Lot, Dracula, Anno Dracula, 30 Days of Nights, Let the right one in, I am legend (which I must re-read), Martin the vampire, Ultraviolet, Near Dark, Byzantium, and perhaps the early Anne Rice stuff.

So over the years I seemed to have amassed and painted a few starting back with the original citadel FF58 - Vampire through to more modern such as Otherworld Miniatures more recent UD10 - Vampire.

I still have a few unpainted (in fact some still blister packed) but what follows is a gallery of the ones done to date.
