Dibble Dabble Week




Well what can I say the title says it all really. This week I've done bits of all sorts. Based a load of miniatures from Copplestone Castings Gangsters (will be agents in 7TV), Wargames Factory/Copplestone Future Wars Zeds, Also from Copplestone nore Boiler suited guards.

Finished my conversion of Tee Hee, Mr Wint, Mr Kidd (just a paint job on an existing figure). I must apologise on pictures this week lost the camera suspect one of the kiddi winks have hi jacked it I'm sure it will turn up in some random place.


 These are my agents that are nearly fiinished they need the bases finishing off and the front left and centre are only half finished.

 More Guards. I will get more Copplestone ones they are just such nice sculpts. Holding back for the Crooked Dice ones coming soon though.

 Zombies WIP the WGF left are a bit MEH! really soft and once undercoated details is hard to work out even with very thin coats of paint. Right hand side ones are Copplestone Castings Future Wars Zombie Troopers just cleaned these and puttied the bases.

These are from Copplestone Castings  Gangsters range 'Hired Hitmen' pack I picked these up on a whim thinking i could use the bodies to convert with Crooked dice heads but having cleaned them up I am going to keep them as they are. They are really nice figures it wasn't until bought these that I noticed the first figure on left has a little truncheon or blackjack nifty eh!


 Last but not least three of my converted bond villains left to right Mr Kidd, Mr Wint from Diamonds are Forever and Tee Hee from Live and Let Die. Plans for Jaws have fell through the Clix figure i bought was vastly to big for the head. So I'm going to finish these off before my budget (and sanity) will allow me to add to the lead pile.

Also this week I received a package from Mr Fantastic 'Lord Siwoc' over at 'Brains n Guts' I'm really chuffed as he sent me  two sets from Reapers Chronoscope line the lovely Zombie Strippers and the 20th Century Weapons packs. The best thing though was this awesome Keyring of Lord Siwoc which I think is just pure awesome. Johnny is really a great guy and many thanks again.

  5. You've got a nice amount of stuff on the go. I can't wait to see it all painted up and on a properly themed table.

    With the assault group Freebie, do you have to place an order of certain size to acquire it?

    1. Yeah I like to have different things to jump to especially as I'm finding Zombies a bit of a chore so I'm trying to do them in small chunks.

      The answer is nothing at all mate. Just like on facebook send em an email with which fig you want and where to and done you should get an email response fairly quick

  7. I like your style Brummie, like me you seem to do a bit here, do a bit there and eventually you find you've got loads done.
    Roll on that mythical day when you've got nothing left to do but play !

    1. I find it kills my creativity if I go down one road to much, I like converting and playing over painting but have vowed not to play with unpainted miniatures scenery is fine. Its a dark road for me to go back down that route lol

  8. Great job showing it all, now on to the painting! I advise you start with those WGF zeds and finish them ASAP, so you can proceed with the better stuff! :P
