I’ve connected with some local gamers that play Gunfighter’s Ball and possibly Dracula’s America. I’ve had the Dracula’s America books for a few years now and haven’t done anything with it. Well, that recent connection was the spark to get me to move on a posse.Continue reading
The tail end of 2021 came to a halt as family tested positive for Covid-19. Thankfully, symptoms were mild and all are fine. The silver lining is that it seems one can get a lot of hobbying done when their house is quarantining…Continue reading
The last gang to cruise the wasted waves of Roswell are The Scientists. I went back and forth the most with this gang on what I could do to have them ride apart from the others. Originally, I was going to go with trucks and hitches to haul UFO artifacts. It ended up looking a little too much like a gang of bootleggers or something. When it dawned on me that a van was a vehicle I hadn’t used yet, the gang materialized.Continue reading
We’re finally getting to the meat of this project, those sweet Perry and Copplestone 20mm post apocalyptic figures.Continue reading
You’ll have seen these minis before if you’re a dedicated reader, but while I was taking photos of some other minis, I decided to take pics of these too since they share the same storage box. I wouldn’t have made a new blog post either, but I needed a new place to host the photos since my links on the Lead Adventure Forum broke. My friends and I are gearing up for a Dracula’s America campaign this summer once everyone has received the coronavirus vaccine, so the timing for new pics is topical as well. Click below for more pics.Continue reading
In this case, hell must be overbooked by about 20 lost souls because that’s how many zombies I’ve currently painted to populate the wastelands of Roswell.Continue reading
I’ve written previously about these models and their inspiration, so this is a bit of a push post. I’ve got some other models I had planned to post on this weekend, but there’s a cold snap here putting my Dullcote spray sealant plan on hold. I decided to get a shot of these graboid-like creatures with a Roswell ’98 UFO in the background so I can go ahead and get these tagged together.Continue reading
Another month has come and gone and with it another paint challenge. As a reminder, September’s painting challenge was as follows:
September got its name from being the 7th month of the original Roman calendar. January and February were added later making it 9th.
These are the official miniatures North Star Miniatures sells for Dracula’s America, but they are really licensed from Artizan Miniatures. While the miniatures are pretty simple as far as details go, the sculpts really impressed me and I enjoyed painting them quite a lot.
As an extra two I painted up the two werewolves while I was at it. I can’t count them as my surprise two because they go with the 7 painted.
So what were my surprise inclusions? How about some mutated goblins for my underworld Blood Bowl team. Remember them?
Jeff also finished the challenge. His first completed mini was for a special event in the Age of Sigmar campaign he’s participating in. The event featured a jousting game, so you know he couldn’t resist whipping up something for his Stormcast wannabes Flesh Eater Courts army.
Not satisfied with one big guy, Jeff also painted up a big guy for his ork Blood Bowl team. Again another conversion, this time on the controversial troll from Games Workshop. I think Jeff did a great job modifying the questionable pose of the GW model.
And for his seven, Jeff got back to the grindstone and ground out seven more genestealers for Space Hulk. There are two more lurking in the background (aren’t there always? Those blip counters can be nasty … ) but Jeff had completed those previously.
And what about Jason? Well unfortunately life got the best of Jason and he couldn’t meet the deadline, coughing up the first $5 into the pot for failing to make the deadline.
Next up is October’s theme …
Things That Go Bump in the Night!
