A zombie, a Klingon and a dodo walk into a bar...No, sorry - that's not right. See, there was this zombie and he took his chicken into a bar...that's not it. Hang on, I'll get it right in a minute. It was a spaceship, not a bar and...
Or I could just stop wittering and show you all some of the wargaming stuff that I've completed recently (over the past 2 weeks or so). That would be better, wouldn't it?
SpaceshipsStudio Bergstrom; I'll use them as Klingon ships although officially they are "Sing-Ons" instead.
Tomb MonstersA little while ago, I showed off some Egyptologist models. As I was writing about them, I realised that, apart from a few ruffians, I didn't have much in the way of opposition for these adventurers. Well, since then I've been starting to gather some...
Black Cat Bases, who are excellent for such things. They have a large range of swarms that really do look like a multitude of animals (I can't see myself using a turtle swarm for anything, but no doubt someone will find a gaming use for them!)
Dodosdodos would be great as light relief for a "Lost World" expedition. These are odd models in many ways. Firstly, they are huge; these birds come up to a 28mm human's shoulders and are considerably bulkier than a man. In real life, the birds stood about 1m tall. Secondly, the anatomy is a little suspect (for example, they don't have the very distinctive upright tuft of tail feathers). Still, kudos to the manufacturer for making such odd creatures available in miniature. I'll use them anyway in my games, though they might just have to be "man-eating giant dodos" instead (mwahahaha!).
Zombieshere for a previous update on zombies.
So there you have it: this is roughly a fortnight's output from my workbench. Some of these items were assembled, based, undercoated and painted from start to finish within that period. Others were merely completed, having been worked on before and then spent a long time waiting for my full attention. Still, they're all finished now!
