Alpha Squad Torpedo

Was hoping to if been posting up some new miniatures that arrived from Kitbash Games kickstarter but unfortunately my Army Painter Spray primer left them all with a terrible texture to the surface so having to strip the whole batch.

Instead od doing nothing I  have grabbed a few figures that were primed using my humbrol primer lingering in the paint pile. I've been playing Fortnite lately on the PS4 and got inspired to painted a diver as its very water orientated this season. So selected one of my Joes who I planned to use as Torpedo. I kind of of kept the original colours but paid homage to one of my fave skins the Tactical Jonesy by adding in some light blue camo to the scheme.

Torpedo with Recondo, Shipwreck and Tunnel Rat.

Crooked Dice Female Agent

Painted this one up as a break in between doing all the green etc on the ghouls. This figure is from Crooked Dice it came as part of the Science Cast set in Apocalypse but now comes as a pair in the set. They are based on the two main characters in the Omega Man but I plan to use her as a secret agent character for spy fi.

Originally I went for a light brown afro but it clashed with the purple clothing so I repainted it black.

The first version.

7TV Day Crooked Dice Black Goat/Wendigo

This is my Black Goat model from Crooked Dice its made of resin and comes in four pieces comprising of the body/legs, left and right arms then the skull/horns. Its intended use is in the Children of  the fields Winterley Cast as an adversary to Lady Winterley and the Strawman. But its physical characteristics also fit into the profile both size wise and physical description of the supernatural creature known as a Wendingo from the Pulp expansion Menagarie of Terror. (It has a goat skull rather than stag but happy to overlook that).

I went for fleshy tones on with grey fur and I am quite pleased with it. 

I need to varnish it still once I have it reapplied and then I can add some tufts etc to match my Children of the Fields models.

Pulp Figures Companion

 Another figure i've always admired is one of the stalwart companions from Pulp Figures. There are a couple I have always liked  just never got around to grabbing the full sets. I spotted a few on ebay selling singles so grabbed this Scottish and the Tibetan guide looking ones.

This was my first attempt at doing the tartan following a method I found online for doing the Burrows Highlanders. I know where I went wrong though. So repainted it  the base colours but left it at the third stage where I was most happy with it.

This was the first go which just got messy quickly. I guess from a distance it probably would look ok.
Went back over and just stopped at this stage and much happier with it..

Burrows and Badgers Hedgehog Huntress

Another Burrows mini finished from the recent kickstarter. This time the Hedgehog Huntress. Lovely characterful little mini. I struggled with defining the spines from the fur getting their in the end but it took to many steps to get to where I wanted her to be.

7TV Day Hasslefree Winter Katerina

Hasslefree Winter Katerina is a mini I have wanted since having seen the greens so grabbed it once the KS it was originally part of made it into the webstore in metal. Its a very characterful mini that can be used as an alluring spy, mage, assassin or even royalty.

I painted her dress in the same green to match in with the my Children of the Fields cultists as she can stand in as cultist leader or some of the other special characters that are in there.

At the moment I can't decide on her role in my cast it will either be the Unholy Cardinal Co star or maybe the Diabolical Fiend Star.

I am still working on the ghouls and have been doing a stage at a time then working on character figures to break up the boredom.

7TV Day Cast Mantic Ghouls

Ah well it was probably inevitable I guess but the 7TV day has been cancelled and we have all had full refunds. Karl at Crooked Dice is going to take over the organisation of the event rather than WI but will still be reorganised at Wargames Foundry for another day.

We still plan to build our casts and share them online nearer the time that the event would of taken place as an joint cast showcase.

Anyway the Ghouls are finished I probably only need around 6 of these for the cast the rest will be spare if the Wendingo manages to create any ghouls using its special effect ability.

I plan on getting a more special ghoul model eventually to use as a ghoul king but the ones with weapons/hair will do as stand in's for now If I decide to make two packs out of these.
