Zomtober Week 1 Here Come the Boys

Phew managed to get 3 figures done for this weeks entry. Had hoped to get 5 done but Kids birthdays, friends coming round to play (daughter) and touring potential High Schools has swallowed a lot of time.

Starting off with the Post Apocalyptic 'Not' Scooby gang from Hasslfree miniatures. The girls are coming to0 just not finished them in time for this week. Next week will most likely be just as busy and next weekend is the Derby Worlds 201 show (Now near Leicester due to venue problems).

First up the star of the show Scooby! Will have to get the normal set as well I think such a lovely model to paint. I have started reading the Scooby Apocalypse Comics and its an awesome more mature take on the Scooby gang only on Issue 3 so far.



Of course who would Scooby be without his partner in crime Shaggy.




Fred of course rounds out the boys part of the gang.





Really enjoyed painting the Scooby gang I really don't know why I didn't start them sooner.  Now to get the girls finished!

  12. Due to Internet connectivity I have only just (In the last 5 mins) published for Zombtober.

    The next 4 are started though. Good to be involved, sorry I am a bit late.

    Your work on the other hand is excellent and would grace any wargames table.

    1. Cheers Barks! Ha tempting I am currently on the look out for one. Undecided on what yet. I have some Ainsty vehicles which could do the trick but spotted some Disney Cars toys the other day that could make an interesting transport option.

    2. I was looking at some of the Cars as well-
      great minds think alike!

  20. These look really, really good! You definitely did an excellent job with them. The colours are spot on and give them that cartoony feel, in a good way of course.
