Weird 15mm Games I should run: Zombies On The Buses…

7 Jul

zomonthebuses

I have some weird ideas for wargames, and while most can be somewhat surreal at times, there are some that really stick in my head. A lot of these would be ideal games for conventions as they aren’t really ideas you’d use in a campaign over the course of a few sessions. These would prove to be a great laugh and fun games, and just maybe it might inspire someone to have a go…

Zomtober: Week #4: Roving TV News crew.

27 Oct

Zombtober

So, I lead you to my last entry in Zomtober, rather than the usual hordes of dead things, I thought I’d make a little change and shake things up a bit by painting up some survivors instead.

This lot is from Irregular Miniatures in their 15mm Riot range (of which I have a lot of in my paint queue, you know rioters, cops, mounted riot police, dogs, etc) and is perfect for any zombie related skirmish scenarios as either a objective marker or even a crew looking to get the latest scoop on the biggest news story of their lives!

I love the way they have turned out, i’m still in two minds to if it was best to base them together, maybe it would have been a better idea to have them separate (Good thing is that they are cheap as chips, so I’ll maybe get a couple more sets to use too)

If your after these figures, get on over to Irregular Miniatures and have a look at their stuff, very reasonable and great service too!!

Zomtober is now over, but since I’m in a bit of a routine, you might see a bit more painting out of me (If time permits…)

Hope you enjoyed.

Catch you later.

Zomtober: Week #3. Better late than never….

24 Oct

Zombtober

 

Ok, Ok, so I am quite a tad late with this weeks zomtober entry. Real life gets in the way of any hobbyist persuit and while I have had ample chance to get access to my computer, I’m currently dosed with the flu, a damaged knee and aching bones.

Never the less, I did manage to get a couple of likkle zomers done (excuse the pics, they are just ok, not great)

As usual, I’m working through the old glory/blue moon manufacturing 15mm zombies I got a while back.

This time, we have the first crawler type I have in the horde, which I’ve made a bit more bloodied and gruesome, and the bare chested one which I adopted an easy brown/pale flesh gradient with minimal highlights. Easy and effective (plus saves messing around with tons of different pots of colour open etc)

I will be back with the last entry, all being well, on time on Sunday.

Later!

Zomtober Week #2: Old Glory 15mm Zombies.

14 Oct

Zombtober

Hello there everyone, well this weeks Zomtober painting entry is a little late by a day, but here they are. Yesterday was pretty busy, so I wasn’t able to get anything done or posted, so sorry my bad!

These are the first of the pack of old glory 15mm zombies I got a few months ago,, and I must say that I love the sculpts and sheer variety in the packs. Even so I’m not a big fan of zombies with weapons, I kinda like the cleaver dude. All in all great sculpts with these zombies.

Well, bust today too, so no long post at all, so ciao for now!

Zomtober Extra: My Horde, my horde, oh lordy lord!

8 Oct

Zombtober

Well, it’s not really another Zombtober entry, but I thought I’d show a bit more 15mm zombie related madness, this time I wanted to show you my still growing herd of walkers in the scale.

It’s made up from all of my finished zombies, small and larger sizes to represent human (or zombie) diversity.

I still have about half again in various sized singles, small swarms and medium sized swarms, which equates to a lot of zomers! I think I’m pretty much done with them as far as numbers are concerned, I reckon it’ll be survivor types from now on, lets face it, I’m going to need a fair few to cope with this lot! Plus I think i’ll be expanding some other baddies I already have (Grey Aliens & UFOs, werewolves, cultists, giant spiders etc) and lots of B-movie type villains that will fit with my modern city stuff. (Godzilla anyone?) Superhero battles would be good too, as would plenty of other options (vampires vs werewolves, civil unrest/riots, police vs gangs/terrorists and so forth.)

I’ll be back later with some more Zombtober inspired zombie themed stuff, and obviously later in the week with my next Zombtober entry.

Ciao for now!
