Zombtober 2015

Yes gentle readers its Zomtober! The time for zombie festivities and here at Fiends in Waistcoats that means painting zombies!!!!  I'll be expanding the Victorian Zombie hoard and, if I have time, finish off some characters for ZI. Fist I'm taking stock of the current sat of the horde err small gather pictured above. Now let's look at the figures I have half done that have been laying about in need of attention. If I get half of these finished off it will be a productive month. Here are the zombies awaiting paint.

Cars For The Car Queen

You might recall gentle readers that I had a contest nearly two months ago the fabulous Ms. P. won this contest and the shopping spree. After many weeks of prevarication a decision was made can you guess what Ms P. wanted?
And some car accessories.

The Struggle for Tatooine- Forces

 Images taken from the expanded edition of Star Wars all rights belong to Disney.

 The Hutts, Tatooine is part of the galactic rim known as "Hutt Space" though its nominally controlled by the Empire in the first Star Wars movie its really controlled by Jabba the Hutt. My Star Wars escapades will be set after Return of the Jeddi when the Rebel Alliance is engaged in a full on war with the Empire. At this time (in my mind) the Hutts try to throw the Empire out of their "space". So Storm Troopers vs the forces of the Hutts. I'm collecting and converting figures to represent these Hutt troops.

But that will wait as Zomtober 2015 is nearly upon us! I have many zombies waiting to be finished off. I've successfully finished off a few zombies each Zombtober so I expect to get more done this one.

Blog Inturuptus

My blogging, blog reading, not to mention hobby work has been interrupted yet again by work! I have begun digging up figures to use in my Star Wars project. The metal figure next to Ric the Rodian is a Reaper D&D monster called Astral Reaver Monk. When I'm done with him he'll be an alien jedi hermit on Tatooine. A popular planet for jedi to hid out on. He ia a little thicker than the WOTC stuff but otherwise fits in well. More progress this Sunday.

WOTC Rebel Marines

Whats a Star Wars game without the Rebel Marines? A poor one to be sure. I have enough of them to make 2 8-man squads. in WEG  to make 2 squads in WEG, WOTC has put out several poses much better to my mind than FFG's single Rebel trooper sculpt for Imperial Assault.
 I actually have more that 16 but some of the WOTC releases are larger than the others as you can see in the photo.
