From the shed: Creature Swarms.

One of the monster types that can spawn in a game of Zone Alfa is swarms of creatures. I didn’t have any in my collection and thought that they might be tricky to scratch build so I bought a few from the Reaper Bones collection.

4 bases of rats, and 2 each of spiders and beetles should be enough for my purposes. They were fun and quick to do too. The Reaper Bones models are made of a funny plastic but they took (brush on) paint well. I’ll be getting some more of them.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.

Latest painted items.

Here are some pics of the latest items that I’ve finished working on.

First up a selection of late war German vehicles (The Kubel isn’t mine it is for Bill/Westy of UFM’s collection).

Now that I’ve got 6 Tigers painted I can do a NWE game that I’ve always wanted to do: every German tank is represented by a Tiger until properly identified by the allies. This represents the number of times Tigers were reported when they weren’t there and the tendency to over estimate the power of armour by the infantryman. This idea is replicated in the NUTS! 2HW ruleset.

A selection of ‘Cops and Robbers’ by Elhiem, they’ll find themselves in a variety of modern games.

Some more Dark Future infantry for my collection. All Dark Future items are commanding high prioces on ebay at the moment.

2 Lions, 2 Tigers and 2 Oxen by Irregular miniatures.

The last three items will hopefully feature in a forthcoming 2HW ‘After the Horsemen’ game… watch this space.

Cheers,

Pete.
