Here come the Hoops!

For those of you who didn't thing the Gallus Gallus were enough Gamma World flavour in my post-apocalyptic games I've now added the Hoops!

The Hoops are basically mutant bunny-men that have appeared in every edition of Gamma World.  In more recent editions they have been presented as more feral and malicious than in their original background.

First up is Echo with his pistol

Then we have E.B. with his shotgun

And lastly Bugs with his rifle

Two of the Hoops should show up in my next game of This Is Not A Test and then I hope to get onto some Porkers (pig-men).

I'm running out of weird animal hybrid models to paint so unless any of you have any suggestions I'll probably move onto retro-sci-fi robots next.

...the horde grows....

Last night/early this morning I got my next 7 Zombicide: Black Plague zombies done.

Not really much to say this time out, followed the same plan as last time and got all 7 of them done in about 90 minutes.

I have a few lingering projects done I need for some games in 10 days so I'm going to take a break from the horde for a few days and circle back to  some games and figures from a  few months ago.

Yet another zombie horde begins assembling

A couple of months (wow, has it been that long?  I'm really falling behind on my painting!) ago I picked up Zombicide: Black Plague.  To be honest I picked it up with no intention of ever playing the game, it just seemed like a really good source of fantasy zombie models as well as some cool adventurers.

I've decided to paint the zombies in batches of 7.  That might seem like an odd number but the way the game comes packaged there are 7 or each pose in the game so it just kind of makes sense.  For my first batch I did one of the fairly straight-forward male zombie variants.

I'm pretty happy with how these turned out and I have to say for boardgame models the quality and the quality of the material seems really high.

At this point I'm planning on using these for my Ravenloft game (which starts tonight!) as well as loaning them out for a Frostgrave campaign day I may or may not be able to participate in.

In a perfect world I'll get a few more of these done this let's just see if the world is perfect.....
