Zombie 3

It's been a long, long while since I updated this blog as I have been working on my Naps 100% however I discovered recently that some like minded folk have been doing zombie based games (cheers Cameron!) and so my zombie bug has reappeared!
I picked up a huge amount of zombie orientated figures a couple of years back and to be honest I had been thinking at 1 point of getting shot of them. Thankfully I held onto them as I am now getting a lot of pleasure from painting them.
I would like all my characters to have a name but haven't had a good think yet. This little lady looks a tough hombre!!!
This dude is a typical survivalist armed to the teeth and ready for ation.
The hungry guys . . .
. . . and something to get their teeth into, better get your skates on!!!

Orks Day Out

A few weeks ago I played my 1st game of 40k since I was a kid playing with the original womble style figures. The Davids (my brother and nephew) have been building up all kinds of different 40K armies and as David snr has been working through an Ork army we used them against Space Marines.
I took the pictures with my Nokia Lumia so they are not big pictures but give you an idea ot the battlefield.
Orks on the rampage.
I think this is the heavy weapons guys?
The Marines sit and wait.
Davids workbench.
Advancing through the trees.
Close combat.
Dreadnought taking a heavy toll of my troops but in the end my Orks were victories.
More in progress shots from David's collection. Some Imperial Guard vehicles picked up on ebay that need some TLC.

Davids Ultramarines 3

It's been a couple of months since my last update, I have been concentrating on my Napoleonics so everything else has been put to the side. Young David has continued with his 40K collection and below are some more of his excellent Ultramarines. Still think that the bases should be more alien planet looking though ;0)
This will be the fast attack mob, assault marines.
And I would guess this will be the heavy weapons guys.
More heavy weapons (laser cannons I believe?)
And the grunts.
Closeup of the officer, he has taken a few hits.
I would say the figure in the centre is lucky to be alive after that head shot!

Davids Ultramarines 2

It has been a very long time since my last post as my life was really hectic and the only painting I have done has been on my Naps. Anyway my nephew David has continued doing loads of figures and just before Christmas I started taking pics of them so I will start posting them over the coming months.
1st up some more of Davids Ultramarines, This time with white helmets.

These guys have came out really well.
And 1 of Davids many terminators.
