Japan table is coming together...


Hey all!

Okay, started to get serious about getting the table together...

So I put out all the new trees I have and did I could to "Japan" it up.


I do need to bend the rice paddies a bit, but whatever, they are fine.


So that's where I am at!

Hey all!

Thought I'd put some figures on the table, with the hope that it would look more... Japanese!


Samurai advance on the town.


The two lines are about to clash...


The primary clan sends forward several units.


Another unit holds the village.


The red lines advance.


More samurai.


The village is about to be hit!


Lots of samurai:)

First 6mm Japanese village done...


Hey all!

Finished up my first 6mm Japanese village tile... 


Made from buildings from Mura Miniatures, it came together rather nicely.  I included some civilians scattered throughout the village to add some life to it!


The center building can be removed to make room for a samurai unit taking the town.  In this case, a group of seven ronin lead the villagers in a defense of their homes!

Better photos of the Supply counters, and a Sheriff's truck!


Hey all!

Thought I would take some GOOD photos (finally found my camera memory card reader) of my painted "The Walking Dead" supply markers...


... another set...


... and the second truck from the set!  I painted this one up as a country Sheriff's truck.  I feel like that's VERY zombie!

"The Walking Dead" supply counters, painted


Hey all!

Well, I did a bit more work on my "The Walking Dead" set.  This time, I painted up some of the supply markers!

I must say, I love the markers... they actually look really good on the board as they look like scatter terrain.  In the above group I particularly like the suitcase.


My second set of supply markers... I think the Army backpack on the left turned out pretty good (better in person, I had to take photos with my iPhone so they aren't the best) and I like the way the Campbell soup cans turned out in the box on the right.

Anyway... more on the way!

The start of "The Walking Dead" eye-candy...


Hey all!

Well, I thought I'd take a few nice photos of what I've put together, especially the new building!  Here, a group of survivors approach it.


The woman with the sword leads two others around back... what's in these big back bay doors?  Just ignore those warning posters... they look old.


Whoa!  A Camaro!  As the woman in the John Deere hat starts up the stairs to look up there and the guy goes to check out the car, zombies suddenly swarm out of the woods!


Out front another wave hits!


Our survivors out back look for a place to run to!


They back up the stairs as the zombies advance... hope that upstairs is clear!


My first building done for Mantic's "The Walking Dead" game...


Hey all!

Well, I got my first building painted up for my Walking Dead set!


I believe it is a set from Sarissa Precision... I got two, this one being a sort of run-of-the-mill warehouse/business... who knows what, specifically.  I painted it grey, then did a bunch of sponge painting with various greys, and then gave it a brown wash.


I did make it so the big two bay doors could come out... here, you can see the survivors have found a getaway car!  I don't know if they will live long enough to use it...

Anyway... one more building to go, a mini-mart!

Edit:  BTW, the hatch at the top looks, in the photos, unpainted.  I swear it is a metallic grey... no idea why it is looking so strange in the photos!:)

So, I got Mantic Games "The Walking Dead" game...



So... I bought "The Walking Dead" at Fall In, and I got some work done!



I'll write more soon, but for now, I thought I would share some early photos.


Got a lot of stuff that didn't come with the set, although the set is great... I'll go over it all soon enough.




A lot more interesting stuff on the way!

Fall In 2017 - The Vendors!




Hey all!

Here are some snaps from the Dealer Hall at Fall In!

I will say in advance... I STRUGGLED with the lighting for some reason!  My iphone took better photos than my darn camera, I believe because I forgot to shorten up the aperture!  So I apologize in advance!


These guys got a LOT of my money... Things from the Basement, which had some GREAT mdf stuff!



Some more, from them!


My favorite 15mms ever... Battle Valour Miniatures... this is their not-skaven.


More Battlevalour.  Love them.


These guys had some great tree and tree bases, as well as some other terrain.


There were some GREAT painted figures for sale...


Big Battalions... the Joes I believe paid for their kids to go through college!


Some more great buildings... I'm sorry, I missed the company name...


More beautifully painted miniatures... this time from Old Army.


I could not love these ships more than I do.  Also from Old Army.


More from Big Battalions, I believe.  I wanted those damn musketeers SO badly.


There were some great paper soldiers available...


... and of course Paper Terrain always has nice stuff (which I could never replicate!)


Ah, okay, here are some shots of Sash and Sabers new Kickstarter minis, WIP...



The indians...


Another shot of the indians...


Here are all the planned figures for the Kickstarter...


And some new union figures he did!
