So back on track.....February stuff!

Right then.....ahem.....back on track......


Another pretty productive month I think.....played some more games of Zombicide especially with my daughter's boyfriend Scott who loves the game like me! 

Managed to finish off one tray of zombies, you get two in the box each with 32 in a mix of walkers, runners and fatties which means I can start on some plan is tray of zombies, 3 survivors, tray of zombies, 3 survivors with abomination to finish! 

So here's the rest of the first tray for your viewing pleasure.......

And a painted shot of the whole tray......half way through the game box!  

Just for fun here is a pic with all my painted zombies so far....including the Hasslefree surfer, some Coldwars and my favourite the studio miniatures Tank.......

Played more games of Zombicide this month which again were tons of fun.....I really cannot emphasise enough how much fun this game is and cinematic! Even when your guys die horribly, brought down by a horde of undead.........

The game looks amazing even only half painted.....can't wait to see how it looks when finished!

Molotov's rock when a room full of zombies needs cleansing........

February wasn't all about zombicide though as I managed to finish up three Pulp City miniatures!  The Beta rules for the second edition have been released and I was inspired to finish up some more......haven't managed to try the new rules out yet though so need to rectify that soon.....

Sovereign and Silverager finished at last!

Also managed to squeeze in Seabolt.....another awesome Pulp City mini!  Really pleased with how he came out!

I even got the change to get in a game of Warmachine with Robin Fitton......I used my trusty tier 4 eKreoss list full of knights exemplar and he countered with a nasty eGoreshade tier list chock a block with horrible Bane thralls!  It was a close bloody battle but Goreshade managed to charge in and finish off Kreoss at the fun though!

This month I also received yet more goodies.....The Greebo teenage mutant turtles and villains arrived from the Indiegogo campaign, great models that will require a lot of assembly! I also got my Deepwars through from Antimatter games following their kickstarter, again some absolutely gorgeous miniatures and rulebook!

Really itching to get started on these..........

Well.....that's it from me.....all caught up now!  More to come soon.................

Yes I'm a slacker.........

So I failed miserably in my promise to update this blog, I have however painted stuff and played in an effort to make amends I will now post pics (if anyone does indeed read this)


January kicked off pretty well with a few games of my new favourite game Zombicide and I also painted up a fair few of the zombies in the box......there are 64, an abomination and 6 survivors!

Managed to plow my way through 20 of the zombies in January.......a good start I think!

Also finally received this box of goodies at the end of the month.......

more to come..........

Holy Crap....It's 2013....

So......It would appear I'm still alive!

2012 was a mixed bag......discovered my love/hate relationship with the evil loveliness that is Kickstarter!  Between that and Indiegogo I spent far too much money on goodies which will mostly begin turning up this year........

Need to try to use this blog now to document my hobby progress this year on, at the very least a monthly basis!  At the beginning of every month I will endeavour to:

- Show off miniatures painted that month

- Document games I played for that month

- Compare number painted of mini's painted to number received/brought.....this last one could go horribly wrong with all the kickstarter goodies due this year.....Sedition Wars, Relic Knights, Bones etc.......

One of the best things I did in 2012 was start up a group on Facebook "Miniature Addicts Anonymous", which as I write this now stands at 165 members and rising! The group has a fantastic mix of gamers, painters, sculptors and people from within the industry......chances are, if you're reading this you're already a part of the group but if not please come check us out at

miniature addicts anonymous

Catch you all soon....hopefully....

Legion gets first plastic Hordes beast!

Coming in February from Privateer Press Everblight gets the first plastic heavy warbeast boxed set

The warlocks that serve the dragon Everblight can call upon a myriad of dragonspawn, each a perfect engine of draconic destruction. The Carnivean, an ancient and favored dragonspawn, shreds flesh, bone, and steel with its mighty claws and a shark-like maw. The Ravagore emulates it progenitor’s fearsome breath by engulfing foes in gouts of blighted fire. Terrifying in its brutal simplicity, the sickle-armed Scythean is another ancient breed created to single-mindedly destroy any who oppose its master’s will.
This box set contains three color stat cards and one multi-part heavy warbeast plastic model (PIP 73057). Included are all the components to assemble one of three heavy warbeast variants: Carnivean, Ravagore, or Scythean. A player may field any number of these heavy warbeasts in a Legion of Everblight army.


The dragonspawn Proteus is Absylonia’s greatest creation. With a mass of thrashing tentacles projecting from its horrible visage, Proteus is the dragon’s hunger given obscene form. This unnatural abomination snares its victims with its tentacles and drags them inexorably into the grasp of its waiting claws. Those ensnared die horribly as Proteus strips flesh from bone, filling the air with a bloody mist.
The Proteus character heavy dragonspawn upgrade kit comes in a blister (PIP 73062). The Proteus character heavy dragonspawn upgrade kit is NOT a complete model. Players will need a Legion of Everblight Carnivean/Ravagore/Scythean Heavy Dragonspawn kit (PIP 73057) in addition to this kit. A player may field one Proteus in a Legion of Everblight army.

Christmas comes early........

Multiple knocks on my door today have resulted in a day filled with new goodies!

Malifaux reinforcements for Seamus in the form of Molly's crew box, her totem the "Necrotic machine" and Seamus's hulking avatar form!  It's funny how the avatar's come in the smallest box possible!

My Empire of the Blazing Sun naval fleet that I have been awaiting from Arcane for a few months now....Very happy this has "finally" arrived!

Gladiator rulebook from Warhammer Historical, £10 for a gorgeous hardback rulebook....bargain!  I loved the Spartacus TV series, so looking forward to recreating some of that!  :)

and finally the Gears of War boardgame.....I've been looking at getting some boardgames for ages especially as quite a few now come with very highly detailed miniatures!  After reading the awesome review on Frontlinegamers blog and his recommendation I picked this game up!  Looking forward to trying this out, especially as it can be played solo!  :)

Anyway off now to play with my goodies.........

Pulp City

A 32mm skirmish game played with superheroes and villains!  Build a team made up of Supremes of various levels and battle for good or evil.....
Level 1 Supremes are a little bit more powerful than regular humans.
Level 2 Supremes are super powered beings.
Level 3 Supremes are insanely powerful and only usable in large games!

One of my favourite villains, a lvl 1 by the name of "Gentleman" a ruthless hitman

A lvl 5 Hero team from the "Heavy Metal" faction featuring Dr Mercury, Nuclear Jones and Chronin
2 x level 2 Supremes and a level 1

This is currently all my Pulp City Supremes painted up.......although I still have more to finish......
