Crooked Dice Action Hero


Finished the Action Hero finally and the last member of the Heroes 1 Pack is done. I hope to get some of the Crooked Dice Soldiers and do them in a similar green at some point so will have this fella to hand to use as an alternative from the Military mind archetype as a Star.





Friday night saw me visit Stourbridge Wargamers club for a mammoth 7 player game of Across the Dead Earth I was joining in part way through. It was a bloody game entering the table from one board edge and then searching the ruins for loot and entrance to an underground tunnel system leading to an unknown location. We all had secret missions mine being to take out enemy leaders and turning them over to the State for a huge reward.

I took a bunch of my raiders which did not to very well at all lol. Even on combats that I initiated they seem to bounce off other peoples gang members hurting them selves lol. I did manage to get my leader down in the underground tunnel but it took bloody 5 turns to get her onto the board.

The next game is planned for 4 weeks time so work schedule permitting I hope to pop down and join in as it was a good laugh with plenty of banter, alliances and double crossing going on.

My Gang feeling the pain 3 down, 1 with a jammed gun and the leader off doing leader stuff or doing her or something!

  1. I like the 7Tv Hero a lot and is a good choice of colours and I like the idea of a military uniform in the same colours.

    1. Thanks dude. My old army figures in black and orange are now down graded to minion status and will be replaced with the newer soldiers.

  9. Ah, it's so tempting to get some of these figures - but I'm sure I've already got enough unpainted or painted models like this.

  10. A good looking star or co star for 7 TV. I was very interested in the ATDE game though.

  11. Great job on the hero. I've got to get another game of Across the Dead Earth in sometime soon, it's been awhile. A multi player game like that might be the way to go :)

  12. You hero figure is up to your usualhigh standard and reminds me a bit of Bruce Willis (don't ask me why as I haven't a clue)
    The game sounded like it was a lot of fun - who doesn't like backstabbing after all?
