Merry Chistmas!

Well here we are, another White Christmas thanks to the few cm of snow we received yesterday. So it makes for a picture perfect Christmas morning. Time to pause & think of those who serve & are currently deployed from their families & friends.

 For the rest of us it will be a day of chatting with family on the phone, feasting & enjoying each others company.

Soon it will be time to open gifts & see what Santa brought us.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Frostgrave Skeletons & of course some Zombies!

Mixing up the title a bit just to add some variety. I finished a couple repaints of some old Citadel metal Skeletons from the Fantasy Tribes series.

The skeleton on the right will be classed as an Armoured Skeleton. I added some 'rust' to the armour.

And of course a couple more Zombicide Black Plague Walkers.

Will be upping my game as I have started prepping some Runners & Fatties to mix it up a bit more from these Walkers

Tomorrow night is the last club night of 2016, so its hoped to see the Silver Tower hit the table as we attempt to gather our third shard. Otherwise I will be jumping into something else.

Zombicide Walkers

Continuing with the Zombicide Zombies, another batch of 4 came off the paint table yesterday, merely needed a matte overspray & a photo-op.

So up first a couple more of the Zombicide Walkers.

As well as a couple more of the Black Plague Walkers.

I guess I should warn you to expect a steady stream of Zombies for the next couple months or longer as I work through the Core Box of Black Plague, with some added original Zombicide stuff just to keep it moving.

Of course I will take the time for some other stuff thats been cluttering the paint table. In this case we have an old 25mm Metal Ral Partha figure from the Fantasy Collection Series. He will make a fine Templar for Frostgrave.

 As the catalog I have showing him is from 1987 you can see that he has been bouncing around for some time. 

Apparently from a 3 figure blister numbered 02-916, I will need to see if I can find the others, or if perhaps this fella arrived from one of the many auction lots I've snagged over the years.

That's pretty much it for this week. With the week break coming up in a couple weeks, I am hoping to get some quiet time to get more paint on miniatures. Then of course there is the "What's that big box under the tree with my name on it" to look forward too!

Frostgrave Enchanter & Apprentice

This past weekend I completed the Frostgrave Enchanter & Apprentice set from Northstar Miniatures.

These are nice chunky metal miniatures, with lots of details & character

As I did with my previous Elementalist & Apprentice, I attempted to duplicate the figures paint schemes from the packaging of the blister. Of course there are always a couple minor differences, especially when it comes to equipment not visible in a photograph.

It's off to the club tomorrow eve & with the temps here hitting -30C it will be a frigid trip.

Let's just hope the auto is up to it!
