Happy Happy Happy

Yay finally my copy of 'No More Room In Hell' by Iron Ivan games arrived yesterday and I collected it today woohoo. I'm hoping to have a flick through so I can see what dice etc I need as starting from scratch I realised I don't have any LOL.

Whilst in my favorite shop I also picked up some 'Dixon Miniatures' Yakuza  thinking they could be a gang of survivors or an enemy. I only bought the one pack depending on how well they paint up I might pick the rest up.

I seem to be addicted to modern gangster types. I was reading about all the different types of Yakuza groups on a wiki page yesterday. Was fascinated may have to do some gang warfare type games.

Going against what I said i'm doing these ten at the same time. Cloth and flesh done. Need to do weapons, webbing, pouchs etc.

Not sure what colour to do on the five guys goggles in the front row? I thought maybe a light browny yellow or a red/orange combo? Any suggestions?

Also leave some of the parts of the weapons black and just add little bits of metal to show black casings on stocks etc?

I'm looking forward to the Bad Guys in Suits. My plan is to paint these SWAT and finish them first and use the Bad Guys as an incentive to get them done.

Nates Fallout Campaign

Was searching for paint ideas tonight and came across this awesome Fallout base miniature site. I am a huge Fallout fan especially of the first few RPG's.

This guy has some fantastic figures and terrain. Great use of mini's from a wide variety of miniature makers as well as some scratch built stuff.

I salute you sir

You must check out the Picasa Photo Album too

My Favorite Fallout artwork

Copplestone Bikers, Copplestone Bio Chem Squad, Hasslefree Lady Soldiers Completed

Finished most my WIP this week. They need to be based but that will be done the weekend.

 Really really enjoyed painting the bikers. Going to get some more from EM4 and Maybe Black Cat Bases Screaming Nighthawks Gang.

These Copplestone Bio Chem troopers where easier to paint than I thought the first ones  I have painted in ten years.

 My lovely Hasslefree Lady Soldiers and my WIP Dionne got to finish her hair and guns. Going to be used as Elite Zombie Hunters or Corporate hit squad or anything else I can think of.....

Please any critism, hints or tips would be great.

Edited........... I have changed the Bio Chem picture as I hadn't realised I cut off a hand and a weapon on the previous picture

Progress Update with a Piccie

Here we have my Copplestone Future Wars Pack FW5 Bikers.

The three at the rear are finished apart from basing and giving them a layer of varnish.

The front two and my random bid which won me a Foundry Street Violence Figure with an M60 type gun. Skins finished just layering the clothing on. (I think he fits in quite well).

Hoping to have them all painted by the weekend. Can't decide what to do with base there gonna just gave sand added as a texture but not sure on what colour yet.

Ha and I just realised my dog is asleep on sofa in background.

An Update.....

After my week off from painting due to working oncall. Got my 3 of my Copplestone Bikers nearly finished just got one or two bits to finish off and then some basing todo.

Just one some Copplestone Bad Guys in Suits off ebay so can't wait for them to arrive....
