Roswell ’98: Thrill Hunters on Foot

Summertime was supposed to net me plenty of time to get some hobby projects done. It wound up being a season of shuffling the kids from event to event. As the season winds down, I was able to squeak out the Zona Alfa models for my third gang in the badlands, the Thrill Hunters.

Roswell ’98: When there’s no more room in hell, the dead will walk the earth.

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.

Roswell ’98: This valley is just one long smorgasbord.

I’ve written previously about these models and their inspiration, so this is a bit of a push post.

Blitz Bowl: Halfling Team

Halflings were always my preferred Dungeons and Dragons race when I was a a youth, but I never felt drawn to play them in Blood Bowl. I guess I was never a fan of all the kitchenware on their models. I can get behind them being a joke team, but I’d still like them to look like a…well…sports team.
