Two Year Anniversary!

I wished to mention on the last day of November that this month (November) marks the second anniversary for Fiends in Waistcoats! Its now two years and 29,581 views later, but this would not be possible if not for the very kind comments left by many of you readers so thank you one and all! Without your kind comments I would have never kept up with this blog. Speaking of readers there are two new gentlemen following with Google +; Jimmy Fernades of Middle Earth Minis and Gordon Richards of I Have Wrought My Simple Plan I must say I love that title! Please use the links provided to check out their wonderful blogs.

The above picture best illustrations my image of the storied British Wargames Club well dressed Gentlemen and the occasional Lady whiling away their leisure time in well appointed parlous served by dinner jacketed waiters. I suspect a gathering of the Rejects would closely resemble the above image.

Not a very sexy update I'm afraid just streets for the London board. These street boards pictured above are 12"x7" and they will be painted to match my cobble stone bases. The 4'x4' London board will be made up of 24 1/4" hardboard sections 12 12"x7" street sections and 12 12"x9" city block sections with the buildings mounted on top. Now some will say this concept won't allow a lot of different set up options but setup it's self shouldn't take to long as all the buildings will be glued to the city block boards.

The Fiends in Waistcoats Guide to Victorian Zombie Miniatures


As you are now doubt aware of my Victorian zombie project and many of you may like Bob The Zombie Dude's (hope you like your new title Bob) wonder how will I get "Victorian" zombies?
I thought I'd take a moment to show you dear readers the growing number of Victorian Zombie miniatures on the market today. Now I'm qualifying "zombie miniature" as the classic shambler type there are a number of armed undead cowboy miniatures on the market but they don't fit my zombie definition so they are not included here. I'll update this when more figures become commercially available over time.

Progress in Fits & Starts

You might be wondering just what it is your looking at right now, you are looking my home made zombie feasting markers. Yes these markers will denote zombies feasting on human flesh in progress in ATZ viewing such a thing will cause civilian characters to make a Rep test. As you can see they are made from Horrorclix vampire & victim figures on my home made street bases.

I'd also like to welcome three more new readers who are following with Goggle + Rune Heart of the German language blog Game Department, Roy Williamson of the Paint Table Satuday  Google community, I wasn't aware it had become a community, and Pat G. who is a member of the Google community Adventures in the East Mark I couldn't find a blog associated with you Pat (other than your wife's) so if you have on let me know. Welcome dear readers!

Churchyard Re-Built

Some of you dear readers my recall my old graveyard piece this terrain bit suffered two brutal assaults (knocked of the shelf) by the Devil's Kitten (see here) and was in very sorry shape the foam tombstones didn't survive. I've re-built it or in the processes anyway by adding Aintsy Casting monuments & tombs and Lemax  Halloween village tombstones.

Zombtober 2014 The Aftermath

Zombtober 2014 wasn't the push period I had hoped it would be do entirely to Real Life concerns. As the above picture shows the Victorian Horde is of pitiful size, but I began several miniatures in October that I plan to finish of this month.
I've also received my Roadkill order from Johnny Borg I've created a test base for the dead horses.
Well that's it for tonight.

Now that November is upon us some bloggers have jumped right into the next themed painting event "Dinovember" I will not be participating in this event. But I've discovered an American (and I think Canadian) craft store that has some of the best plastic dinosaurs I've every seen out side of a museum gift store. The store is (aptly) named Michael's Craft Store and has many pre-painted hard plastic figures for sale.
