Zombicide Wulfsburg Zombie Wolfz and Wolfbomination

I have just finished painting up the Zombie Wolfz and Wolfbomination from the Zombicide Black Plague Expansion Wulfsburg. 

This was a pretty quick and rushed paint job.  Basically I base coated, drybrushed, quick shaded then picked out a few details and finished.

I figured this paint job is worthy of models that most likely get taken off the table as quickly as they are placed on the table.

I need to paint the 4 survivors for this expansion and will do them soon and then the expansion is 100% painted.

Thanks for looking... stay tuned.

Haus Balkenkreuz ready for Action

I finally got around to finishing Haus Balkenkreuz for 15mm Fantasy.  These miniatures are from Ral Partha and are part of their Demonworld Range.

I used tiny Balkenkreuz Decals for their shields. 

These guys will be used in a variety of games from Dungeon Crawls to something secret I am working on muhaha.

I plan on doing a few more 15mm Fantasy Warbands

First Six 95th Rifles

Finally a post for some historical stuff!

I have been slowly chipping away at my Waterloo Project and have just recently finished the first six 95th Riflemen from Brigade Games.  These are excellent sculpts by the talented Paul Hicks and have recently been released from Brigade Games.

I have used some variations in the green uniforms using Vallejo Black Green, Gunship Green, a combination of both and adding some black into the mix.  I highly doubt early 19th Century Soldiers had the chance to replace their uniforms, let alone wash them.

They are based on my own designed 3D printed bases and are magnatised.

Frostgrave Witch and Apprentice

I have finished painting my Witch and Apprentice for Frostgrave.  These would have to be my two favorite models in the Frostgrave Range.  I can't wait to try these guys out with their unique set of spells.

The models are based on metal washes and I use a variety of basing products including, Wilder Snow Effects, Games Workshop Valhallan Blizzard and Woodland Scenics Soft Flake Snow.

I decided just to copy the paint scheme that is used officially by Frostgrave as it looks awesome, especially the face paint.  I really enjoyed painting these two miniatures.

So its been a massive year for me!  One thing I would really like to improve on is my Followers.  I have peeked at 30 for quite some time now.  I think blogging has died off a little especially with twitter and facebook.  My twitter is actually growing very fast and I am over 200 followers now and no doubt it will continue to grow.

I am glad my blog pops up in Google Searches, that is something I have worked hard on.  For example type "28mm Polish Miniatures" into google and click images, lots of my stuff features so I am proud of that.

I am also smashing my 2018 hobby goals that I posted here .  One thing I would like to do is more WW2 content.

Finally...

I have some massive projects on the go that are secret at the moment.  I want to do a big reveal on them when I put a decent dent into them... not even my twitter followers know about them!

Thanks to all for following my Blog.

Dave.



















Zombicide Black Plague Core Box Set Complete

I have finally finished painting the Zombicide Black Plague Core set from the CMON Kickstarter.  I'm rather pleased with how this turned out and I have used the painted figures now twice in group games and I have received a lot of praise from the people that I have played the game with.  I am rather chuffed about this positive feedback. 

In total there is 71 painted figures.  I think everyone will agree that playing with painted figures is a much more pleasant and creates a more atmospheric experience!

Excuse the Poor lighting but there was a storm on and real life lightning helped
create the mood

I think you will agree that painted miniatures look far better than hordes of grey plastic



Now that this is complete... I must get started on all the Kickstarter bonuses!

Frozen Zombies by Mantic Games

The latest 20 Figures I have painted are some Zombies by Mantic Games.  These have been themed for Frostgrave and anything else in a Frozen Wintery setting.  These models are great and scale really nicely with Frostgrave miniatures.  I have some plans for these lads which I am keeping under wraps at the moment.

I did a fairly quick job to get them ready for the table.  I plan on killing lots of these guys so I didn't want to go too over the top with fancy details.

I really love the derpiness about these guys.  Zombies should be made to look like they are suffering and these Zombies do exactly that.
