Painters block seem to have been truly gone


The painting low I had this autumn seem to be gone (for good?), as I have cranked out a lot of minis the last month.
First these gangers for use in our club campaign of Street Wars. They are the Black Cobras gang from the same manufacturer, and has seen two battles so far. 
First game. The Black Cobras take on the Mollies, while trying to mug some pesky civilians. 
A Mollie lookout

The uncultured and rather racist Devil Outcasts join the fun. For the Black Cobras this turned into a two-front war, which you usually don't win. 
The cops stop eating donoughts and make an appearance. A Mollie is arrested, to the general merriment of two players.
The first was, ahem, a learning game for the gang (see above), but the second fight showed which gang of the four in that fight was the mightiest (the last roll of the last turn saw the Black Cobras go from a last place to the first. Truly heroic wasting of a knocked out enemy leader…)
Next we have some savages. The first two are Forest tribe women from Heroes of the Dark Age. Fantastic resin-figures but rather small at around 25 mm.
Then we have two taller heroes from Shadows of Brimstone, made of a horrible resin. In the background a portal from the same game, and a 3D-printed Kraken Idol from EC3D.
Last but not least is this rather diverse bunch. A serving woman from Wizkids, then a 3D-printed penguin from EC3D, a centaur (the best on the market in my opinion) from Heresy Miniatures, a 3D-printed zombie (I don’t remember the make, but I’m not too happy with it. Will have a higher resolution next time) and finally two giant rats from Reaper.
That’s it for now. Got a dozen or so Arabs nearly finished and lots more in the queue, both figures and buildings.

Cargo Supplies from Bad Squiddo


Here we have Cargo Supplies from Bad Squiddo Miniatures’ own range of scenics. An excellent set that will work equally well in fantasy and pulp. I see the items used both in my pulp harbour and in the equally pulpy desert town.
One piece, the cloth with fruit and whatnot, come from Sally 4th’s The Souk – Props set.
Great stuff all!

OpenLOCK stone walls and a fence


Just painted these modular walls from Printable Scenery.
They are made for the OpenLOCK system, and click into each other easily with clips. They are just as easily disassembled.
These are from Stone Walls set, and give you a huge variety of pieces to build whatever walls you’d like.
If a rickety old fence is more your thing, then these ones, from the Ye Old Fence set might be something for you.
Excellent pieces, as always with Printable Scenery.

Painted minis

From Mythic Battles: Pantheon we have Infernal Hounds (painted last year) and Warriors, Heracles, Minotaur and Cerberus.
It’s been a bit quiet here the last couple of months, mainly because I was on a real painting low. Anyway, this x-mas I sat down with minis, paints and brushes and remembered how fun it was to paint.
Morrigan and Bob from Zombicide: Black Plague and a pack-horse (painted last year), make unknown.
So here we have what has been painted so far this year, and a couple of stragglers from the autumn.
Finally some Hastur Disciples from the excellent game Cthulhu: Death May Die
