I happen to have some more Plague models in the Mountains of Minis that I would like to add to the new plague force I have started with the bobbybox minis. I think I will have a sidequest going for a while to get them done along side the bobbybox main quest. Ahem. The Plague […]Read More Sidequest: The Plague. Terrorton!
A change of pace today. Since doing the Bobbybox plague minis, I have been rummaging a bit through the boxes of Deadzone minis, and I have dug up some old fossils… The imposing 1st generation plague victim. What happens is that the first person to get infected by the Plague in a given cycle, turns into […]Read More And now for something slightly different
The Plague. A virus-like alien condition that invades and takes charge of an unsuspecting host, causing growth to parts of the body, thereby changing said host to make it much stronger than before. The earlier one gets infected, the more alien and changed one becomes. The first and second generation are massive hulking beasts with […]Read More Bobbybox, pt V: The Plague
Today has been a day full of Star Wars Battlefront 2. I really am not too fond of the infantry part of the game, which seems to consist of alot of waiting for it to start, then running forever to reach the battle arena, just to get murdered as soon as you close in on […]Read More Bobbybox pt 4: The Plague Doggies and WIP
The first four minis of the crazy box finished! Hoody Hoo! I have been a busy bee and undercoated all of the minis. So now the table is set for getting down to some serious painting! Starting with some easy peasy Cylons DeadZone Asterian Cyphers: from this: to this: The Cypher with a hand […]Read More Bobbybox pt 3: The First Four: Refbot and Asterians
Every year, Mantic games does a so-called “crazy box” which basically is a mystery box of “random” miniatures -older miniatures that are not selling very well and that clutter up their warehouse- at presumably a steep discount if one were to calculate the retail prices of the contents. This year, Mantic offer up their normal […]Read More The Punishment Due: Crazy Bobby’s Craaazzy Bonanza Box of Craziness!!!!
About a year ago, I bought a set of Mantic old convert-your-own sci fi zombies off ebay, and combined with the plague zombie sprues I got from the deadzone kickstarter I spent a day building a ton of them. They have been cluttering up my to do-shelf ever since, only being nickled-and-dimed in small groups, getting […]Read More Space Hurps done for now
One of the metal specialist or hero-types delivered in the second wave of the kickstarter rewards. The Dugs Sorak are the aliens that use their upper arms for legs, and have a lower set of more delicate arms for most other tasks. This one has rather large pair of cleaver-like swords. So I tried to […]Read More Deadzone Rebs Sorak Swordmaster
The second blob of minis off the shelf today is 12 more of the Mantic Sci Fi Zombie Space Hurps conversions: I really, really need to look into better photography. At any rate, that makes 43 of those zombies done in all. 15-20 or so to go. I must admit they are getting a bit […]Read More Space Hurps part the fifth.
A few weeks ago I painted a squad of 10 Mars Attacks! Martian Grunts. Or so I thought. Turned out 7 of them were Martian Marines, and not Grunts at all. (In my defense, they are very similar, with the difference being that Marines have shoulder pads. So I have at last finished the remaining […]Read More Fixing the little Mars Attacks! mixup, and more Zombies.
So I spent a couple hours on these space zombies today, all the painting time I have had in about a fortnight. 10 more means that 31 or so are done. And bonus: Mike Wazowski, a Reaper Bones 2 “Hordling”, some sort of minor demon. Very minor. That base is 20mm.Read More Space Hurps part three
So for April, I have been thinking about what to do for my resolutionary challenge. First, I need to prep a lot of the new minis that have arrived, such as the second Bones kickstarter shipment. I also have the second wave of DreadBall Xtreme and the first wave of DUST totally untouched as of yet. Second. […]Read More April!
