15mm Deckplans

I picked up a copy of AE: Bounty the other day.  I want to run a 15mm campaign.

I printed out a set of the Star Station Zero 15mm deck plans on card stock and mounted them on foam core.

I'm not quite finished yet, but you can see how they are coming out.

I'll be working on the doors and consoles tonight.

The Zombies are coming... eventually.

Now that CES is behind us,things have finally slowed down at work enough for me to get some painting done.

Low/Mid-Tech Humans in Ballistic Vests - Khurasan Miniatures
I had finished these Khurasan Low/Mid-Tech Humans in Ballistic Vests, which will be serving double duty as sci-fi militia troops, and well armed survivalists in a zombie games.

I'm reading No More Room in Hell from Iron Ivan games. I really like the system and cant wait to give it a go.

Currently on the painting table are Civilian Hunters, Armed Street Punk and Bio-hazard Zombie Hunter from the Rebel miniatures ATZ: Better dead than Zed pack. Once they are done, I have a TON of zombies, raging zombies, zombie dogs and more!

Thoughts on All Things Zombie: Better Dead then Zed from 2 Hour Wargames

I'm not quite finished with ATZ. The large number of spelling and editing errors are making the read take a bit longer then I would have hoped.

While the game my be very fun, I am insulted that they had the nerve to charge 20 dollars for the PDF.

I felt the same way when I read through 5010.

If you like their games, good for you. If you think their PDF's are worth $20... you need to take a better look at what you are paying for...

Regardless I won't be wasting any more of my money on any more 'products' from 2 Hour Wargames.

Zombie Holocaust - Rebel Minis and 2HW

I finally took the plunge and ordered a bunch of Zombie and Zombie hunter figs from Rebel Minis.  I realized that all of the 15mm post apocalyptic HO scale terrain I'm working on will be able to serve double duty on a Zombie board.

I also ordered the PDF of 2 Hour Wargames 'All things Zombie 'Better Dead than Zed'. I made the decision almost solely based on the reviews, as personally I'm not a fan of 2HW. It's not that I think they make bad games, it's that I think they made odd layout and editing choices.  (I still don't see why in the world they use a concept of 'passing on zero dice'... THATS CALLED FAILING! Anyhoo I do want a solid system to use, so we'll see if it cuts the mustard.

Got some new terrain pieces coming over from ebay, some of which I know are going to blow your mind once I get them painted up.
Tell me these figs aren't awesome!

Getting ready for Tomorrows War

Now that I've been gainfully employed for a few months, I feel like I can devote more time and money to my hobbies.

I dragged my portable painting kit with me to my girlfriends over the Halloween weekend and got started on some of my ARC Fleet figures from Critical Mass Games. They just need to be removed from the painting stick and based.

Next I'll be starting up on a set of their Grav Tanks. and some more of my 'Red Planet' terrain.

If you haven't picked up the PDF of Tomorrows War btw you really should. It's pretty much what gave me the inspiration to blow the dust off the old figs and get to gaming again.

I'm sorry about the low quality picture. My cameras are at the GFs so I had to use my phone for this one.

Game on!

I'll keep this one short and sweet.

As of yesterday I'm gainfully employed again.

It's a great feeling knowing I can get back to my miniature projects now... not to mention keep paying my rent.
