Busy Week, Batman, Buildings and Buttocks!!

Missed Wednesday's post this week but it has still been a busy one hobby wise. Tuesday I visited Pulp Citizen's domain for our 350 rep Batman game I mentioned last month. As well as working on some terrain and painting mini's!

Before I delve into the weeks goings on. Does anybody have any spare Crossbows and quivers from the Fireforge Foot Sergeants boxed set. I am after about 5 for some post apoc conversions and prepared to pay a fair price for some if anybody has any knocking about unwanted.

Batman Game.

I made a few tactical deployment errors to start with which was not putting all my gang the full 10cm on to the board and placing my objectives in awkward spots. My Titan thug and a borrowed tube prisoner tied up the left flank and eventually the rest of my gang managed to throttle the centre and right hand side kicking Black Mask's crew off two of his objectives allowing me to claw back some much need VP's resulting in I suppose a minor victory of  33vp to 31vp (or a draw IMO) at the end.

It was another hugely enjoyable game it last a lot longer but took a little bit longer to get going as it was the largest game played so far and had more figures to manage. I am thinking of starting up another crew possible LAW or maybe even a Batman crew undecided at the moment but leaning towards a LAW crew.

Terrain.
Inspired by PC's new terrain that he has finished recently has given me a kick up the arse to get some work done on the Mars Attacks Ruins I started bloody age ago. I've dusted these off and split the project in half. I have got all the small scatter and the small ruins bases textured and primed. Next job is to get it all painted then will get the bigger ruins done.

Painting.Painting wise I have been working on two figures this week the intention was to get a female raider finished armed with a flail and shield but I got distracted by a second figure I was beginning to basecoat using spare paint from the female raider........

Anyway the figure I finished is this guy as you can tell its a very 'inspired' by version of Wez from the Road Warrior. I only started doing the skin and got carried away its a fab sculpt and i've really enjoyed painting this figure. Even the bloody buttocks!

I really hope that Westfalia Miniatures put these up on general sale at some point I'd really like a second set. I'm very glad I managed to back this kickstarter as for the moment there KS only!!!! Hopefully the female raider will be finished next week.

  1. I've played a fair number of games with Law Forces, so let me know if you're looking for some crew lists, or thoughts on the various figures available to them.

  2. Great job Simon, I've managed to get mine prepped but no further yet. I was chatting to Kawe about the range and he suggested that there will be no more in the range as he didn't want to go up against the new releases from Hasslefree.

    1. Shame that he didn't release the Humungus sculpt that he did. There are some great looking general raiders costumes from the second movie he could do which would sell out by the bucket load for really nice sculpts.

  13. Well done, Simon.

    It appears that like the butcher who backed into the meat-grinder you've gotten a little behind in your work. ;)

  15. Good stuff simon. I was rather taken by the previewed Mad Hatter gang myself. The law just seems so.... goodie two shoes.

    Wes looks right out of the film. Did they make a fig for the little kid who threw the boomerang blade?
