So here are some more survivors to add to the Zombie munching machine, a real good mix of manufacturers, from left to right is Hasslefree, Cold war minis, Spinespur and Foundry, the Hasslefree mini is an unarmed woman, What? I hear you say....not only is she a woman, but she is also unarmed, stop shaking your head, not everyone is armed in a zombie apocalypse ya know....geeez, the next survivor is a Cold War Mini he looks like a Redneck trucker swinging a tyre iron, he would have to be one of my fav survivors, I think he oozes character and faithfully personafies what a redneck would look like, only thing missing that would make this mini even better is a mullet hehehe. 

Nice ass ?

The next mini being a spinespur mini I am in two minds about, he has painted up well but there is just something about him that is unnatural or awkward, dont know what it is but I am 50 / 50 on this character, having said that, how he is outfitted and armed will present some problems for the ole Zombies, the final mini is a Foundry mini and again captures what I would imagine a Jamacian gangster would look like, you know like in Bad boys II, yer I know, I watch to many movies, aside from that check out the sheer size of this Lad, he is huge, the zombies had better not get in his way, hand to hand this guy will be one tuff customer, if his G3 assualt rifle doesn't get them, his big hammer fists will.

Check those dredies out !

'The Creepy Little Kid'

So I'm adding some more zombies to the hoard, these guys are from Cold War Minis, I must say that Cold War miniatures produce some of my favourite zombie miniatures on the market today, everything from there stances to the amount of character sculpted into the minis and the level of detail that these miniatures have, easily make Cold War miniatures one of my top three Zombie producing Companies

So from left to right we have a Redneck Zombie that looks like he had his knee munched out, then there is the Creepy kid that we all like, but hate, he has multiple wounds to his abdomen and legs, then there is the business woman who has bite marks to both arms and to her shoulder and finally there is the Fast food cook who has bite marks to his thigh region and multiples to his abdomen, if that wasn't enough he also has a bung leg, life can be cruel sometimes even for a zombie.

So, as you all know I recently moved house, from a single storey unit to a double storey apartment, and space has always been an issue, I am approaching (at breakneck speed) a place, where I want too get some friends together and actually have a night of miniature gaming at my place, but being short on space where was I going to host this event ? in the end I decided to take over the garage and devote this space to gaming, once I settled on where, I then stumbled into 'on what', what was I going to use for a gaming table? it just so happens that at work we recieved a new showroom display unit which came via a courier inside of a wooden crate, as soon as I saw it , the light bulb went on in my head, with a few choice words to the boss, I took that sucker home, a few days later I went to a hardware store and had them cut me a top, made of basic MDF wood, I screwed the top down to the base and SHAZAM ! a basic but very useable gaming table, the table will be a great help when making terrain, cause I will be able too lay everything out and build upon it bit by bit, anyway, in the end the playing surface measures 2metres long x 1.2metres deep, I was very happy with how things turned out.

I have been getting inspired of late to start many new and different projects, which as you can understand can become a bit of a problem, this can put a massive strain on your resources and potentially cripple other ongoing projects... I bet there are a few of you out there that know what I'm talking about, Right? that's what I thought, anyway, I decided to briefly post on my new and upcoming projects, as some of you know, I already have a few projects on the go, A Gladiator project, American Indian Plains War project and my Zombie Apocalypse  project, now to these existing projects I will add another two projects, the first one being a Dungeon Crawl project using a basic D&D rule set, this will be done in 15mm, I will put together a party of about five adventurers, build a dungeon of sorts and fill it with dungeon nasties, with this project I am hoping to recapture some good old fashion 1980's dungeon adventuring, I am going to kick this one old school. 

The second project I will be adding to the lead mountain is a project based in Prehistory, a time when Cro-magnon man and Neanderthal man lived and hunted side by side, a time where man was not at the top of the food chain, a time where Woolly Mammoths roamed the northern tundra freely and where Smilodon lays hidden in the grassy plains awaiting his next unsuspecting meal, for this project I will be using the Tusk rule set, probably tweaked to the max, I own the rule set and believe that it needs a little more depth, other than that it reads like a fun and exciting game, this project will also be done in 15mm, my preferred scale, I will post more on these projects as the miniatures turn up and the terrain gets made, thats all for now, will post again soon, chau chau.

A quick post to let everyone know that I am back up and running, house has been moved and my miniature painting station has been set up and is ready for production for the remainder of 2011, what was that ? ...what do I have in store for you for the rest of 2011? well, I am glad you asked, I have a new project to add to the lead pile (more on this later), and there is more American plains Indian war miniatures, and of course lots and lots of Zombies.... I would like to finish my zombie project this year if possible, I still have under fifty zombies to paint, and I also have all the fencing to assemble and paint for my Zombie Apoc terrain 'Small Town USA', was also thinking about adding a suburb section to my Zombie Apoc Terrain (I will think more about this), I have also acquired a small US army chem squad from Eureka minis, these guys will need a touch of paint, so I am back at it again, you all can expect at least one post a week, next post due this weekend.
