Hyrekia, Half Elf Sorceress from Reaper and a short Gothcon review

Another Reaper figure, this time Hyrekia, sculpted by Werner Klocke.
She’s a metal mini that’s been in the tin-mountain for far too long, which is a shame as it is a really nice figure.
On the painting table now are the remainder of the Castle Ravenloft figures, a few more assorted fantasy minis, the last Black Scorpion western minis and some western buildings. I’m hoping to have the Ravenloft game all painted and have a game or two, and also to have most of my western-stuff ready for a game of Dead Man’s Hand soon.
After that I think there will be lots of Dust, as I had a demo-game of Dust 1947 at Gothcon this weekend and it felt really good (thanks for the demo, guys!). I’ve got my Dust-mojo back and that will be prioritized now. I’ve already ordered the new rules and will pick them up at Alphaspel today, hopefully.

Gothcon was great (as always) and we tried a lot of new games. The weekend started with a game of Hjärnor (Brains), a game I’ve seen there over the years and wanted to play. This time we were there when the con started and were the first bunch to get a game in. Great fun!
Three of our four heroes in their first mop-up. My charcter; Malin, armed with a shotgun and a saw, in close combat with a zombie. Jörgen, our wannabe Elvis, coming to the rescue  wirh his guitar and handgun (which will soon run out of ammo) and  Anna wields her chainsaw and handgun with great skill.
Two more heroes, Sigge and  whateve-his-name-was, being ambushed by a bunch of no-good undead.
Our mission was to get out of town (with bikes or cars) and kill many zombies. With 30 killed we would get a major victory and we kept tallying them up. Here we're in one of the houses trying to find car keys and Malin finds them while Jörgen is found by a zombie. 
Everyone to the VW van!
We just have to kill a few more zombies before we fl... retreat.
Just a few more to reach 30 killed zombies...
Just two more....
Finally, we kill the last one, jump into the van and make our escape. A total victory as all our characters are unwounded!


  1. You have painted the Elf very well. Werner Klocke always packs his figures with detail and those buckles must have driven you to distraction.

    1. Klocke's got this thing about buckles...
      They were surprisingly easy to paint, I guess I was lucky :-)

  2. The Kings of Hjärnor, that's us! We kicked ass!

  3. Another lovely fig superbly painted!

  4. Nicely painted miniature Joakim, love Reaper models, and Brains is intriguing, sounds like a fun game. There must be a vibe in the air, I'm painting Walking dead minis at the moment :-)

    1. Thanks!
      The time is always right to paint zombies!
