Bob bought down one of the GW resin fine cast figures to the SEEMS club, which although well painted did not look like it was worth the £10 retail. Certainly I did not see enough extra detail to excite my interest. Incidentally he proved the non shaterability of the figure by nonchalantly throwing onto the table (covered by a thin cloth). I was glad to say it survived.
Unfortunately they ran a game of Orcs Vs Elves, looked like the elves won quite easily. I say unfortunately as I was tempted once again to the dark side, I must resist, to finish of my empire (or undead) and play this game, which I have enjoyed for a number of years.
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?)
