Painted Tcho-Tcho

I gave painting up the new Tcho-Tcho Cultists and Priest a go, and they came out pretty well.  I cut up an old brush for the hair on the mask.



More Banditos!

I finished off the last of the Banditos that I currently have - I did them a bit quickly, so they are not my best work.

28mm Mujadeen

My local wargaming friend squirreled into the idea of modern combat, got some Canadians all painted up (including a tank) then promptly squirreled out again and sold them.  During this phase, I picked up some 28mm Eureka Mujadeen and got them all painted.  I sold them on Bartertown eventually, as I couldn't see myself gaming with them ever.  :-)


They are however, some of the first pics I took with my new Macromats setup I got on Kickstarter.

Banditos!!!

I am a backer of the Black Scorpion Tombstone Kickstarter and was excited to paint up some Wild West minis, so I ordered a bunch from Meeplemart and slapped some paint on a few.



They painted up easily and I love the character they have.  I still have many more to paint, and will hopefully get a bunch more done when I get back home from work in three weeks.

Painted while Listening to:  Alien: River of Pain


The sequel to Alien: Out of the Shadows, it is a prequel to the Aliens movie.  It focuses on the colony on LV426 before the Marine rescue ship arrives.  It wasn't as good as the first one, but really picked up about half way through the book.  Colin Salmon is one of my favourite actors, and it was great hearing him in this!

15mm Heer Pak 40s & 36s

I didn't have any SS crews for these, but was pretty excited to try them out regardless!  All are from Forged in Battle.





I tried airbrushing the guns using the MIG modulation paints.  It was my first time trying them and they are outstanding!  I also tried out a filter after I was done - first time trying that too, and I think they came out well!

Wow was I blown away with this audio drama!  It has a great cast and good story.  I don't see why they felt the need to bring Ripley in, but the voice actor for her was spot on.  Check it out!

Rusted Car and Afghan Animal Pen 28mm Terrain

I had to buy this terrain piece from Rusty Rail of an old rusted out abandoned car:





I also tried out my new airbrush on this Afghan animal pen from Architects of War:


15mm German SS squads and support for Battlegroup

I've never painted SS before, and I wanted to do the camo as a challenge.  I really like how they came out!  All are Forged in Battle miniatures.  Excellent sculpts and casting.

Playtesting

Wow, has it been that long?  Been working lots lately, sorry.  Here's some pics of the playtesting I did on the weekend for the horror rules that I've been working on:














I ironed out a lot of issues and simplified a few things.  The zombies were tweaked, and rifles proved to be quite powerful.  Had a fun time pushing minis around the table.  :-)
