The other night I managed to finish of a small team of S.W.A.T. members to help 'Small Town USA' survive the zombie hordes that will invade its quiet sleepy streets, these miniatures are from Eureka and they required extra work to get them looking Cool, they originally came in three pieces, head, body / arms and pelvis / legs, so once I glued them together I had to putty up the gaps, wasnt too hard, but if your the 'cant be bothered' types then I would suggest buying a different range.  

Overall they are a nicely detailed range, with a very SWAT like look and stance about them, paint wise they were very easy, with such a simple colour pallete, navy blue and matt black with a splash of flesh, how can you go wrong ! with these guys I did something a little special which I think has added a lot to the miniatures, I managed to put S.W.A.T. patches on the back of each members vest, now tell me do they look cool or What ?

"Your either S.W.A.T. or your not !"

So many miniatures to paint but so little time to paint them, this seems to be the story of my life at the moment, I'm also currently working on a few different things at the same time, what I do is I'll start something new, get stuck somewhere along the line and then I'll start something else until I can figure out where to go from where I got stuck, too funny, so I am currently working on a Swat team, County Sheriff, with respective vehicles, I am also putting together a few picnic tables and a bunch of forklift pallets, and of course I'm still trying to finish stage 2 of my terrain, Small town USA's small central parkland area.

But today I managed to finish off a couple of survivors, I call them Harlem hotties, now I can confirm that one of them is a female but the other I am suspecting is of the Drag variety, either way the Z's look like they will have their work cut out for them, ones carrying a shortened pump action shotgun and the other one is armed with a Smith and Wesson .44 magnum hand cannon (Dirty Harry's gun), the magnum will make for a nasty weapon in game, as the powerful caliber gives this handgun overpenetration issues, it will easily punch through the intended target hitting anyone or anything standing directly behind it, but the recoil will also cause issues, making target re-acquisition difficult. Both miniatures are Obelisk miniatures, nice sculpts full of character.

Hi all, this week I managed to pick up some cool Coca - Cola accessories off ebay along with a ride on forklift, this stuff looks great and will add lots of character to the back warehouse of one of my convenience stores, that I will set up in Small Town USA, I picked up 10 crates full of Coca - Cola bottles, and ten empty Coca - Cola crates, the forklift came with a single pallet and seven crates full of the precious black liquid, I have also ordered another 10 actual wooden pallets to use as props, the pallets should turn up real soon. This stuff looks great and is in scale, extremely happy with this purchase.
