I think the Wasp vehicles look great graven. They're dirty enough to be very believable... especially since I feel the gang would do what it could to keep the look of it's vehicles as pristine as possible. Very nicely done.

Cheers. Yeah, I like that logic. They are the cult of speed after all.

Talking of things that go fast, decided to repaint a dragster bright pink at the daughter's request

I think I'll call it the Yass Queen

Fun with chroming effects on the engine.

Didn't do much anything else p&m wise, but I acquired Devil's Run: hell's highway for more vehicles (and crucially, ones that don't require power tools to chop up) and reorganised the BMG and DCU boxes around so the DCU is now the bigger of the two. Oddly momentous. Even with BMG 3 around the corner, DCU is still my jam. I know there's some BMG stuff getting moved to DCU that's not been announced yet officially, so they've been bumped also. Be prepared
Still hacking and spluttering. Trying to kill it with Whisky (Macallan gold if you care about such things). Got my appetite back - which is good, I've lost half a stone in 6 days - and now just need to start feeling normal again!

That's it, indeed

Settled on the roof etc off the Mystery Machine

Need to mask the other flowers.

Happy with the build. I have lots of toy cars, lots of bits. Fun just to mess about a bit. Just needs a bit of wire or gs rope to hold down the boxes.

Still, finished off the Night Terror for Dreadball



Mad month continues. The older boy's birthday is Thursday, I'm making him a bits box. Got to start somewhere right? In NO WAY is it actually just an attempt to "organise" my own stuff...

To appease Papa, I started on Felthius and co

Some minor conversions in there. Early days but going down a crusty classic white and green for them.

And did a bit of best buddy beasts from Potter.

Lupin is a bit further along.

Nice figs. Of course, means I need to do Lupin proper and Sirius

Nice birthday with the boy. He liked his pack of raven guard transfers and bits. Whether he does anything with them is another matter.

Mantic sent me apologies for not yet sending the Wild Hunt expansion, and are apparently going to send me that AND the big box of evil this week. So might dive into that. I'm not fussy lol,

First world problems of not getting the free stuff , oh Mantic, you should take care of the ones who still promote you. I keep hearing 3rd edition KOW is great, but local shop won’t allow it . Burn us 14 times.

Hope the new Nurgle guys he’ll finally appease Papa for you. Now you just have to worry about getting hooked on spice or eaten by worms.

Potter pups look good, why do you have all these cool models that I want to paint too. As for the DG, I will always have a soft spot for that army in my oozy bitz. Can't wait to see how you paint them up.

I'm not a KoW fan particularly. 2nd left me cold.
Still coughing and spluttering. Clearly, need to do more.

Because I am a nerd-whore.

What's next? Well in attempt to get ahead, I decided to tackle a very boring task all at once and start painting all the bases and base inserts on minis primed white to black. 30 figs done in a very productive, if dull, hour. This means that I can pretty much get on with anything and everything now as I see fit. The problem, incidentally, is that because KM resin is so brittle you really have to leave it on the base tab or risk severed ankles. It's an annoying trade-off.

Still, a big box came today. A big box... Of Evil!

Also The Wild Hunt. So a good day of nerd loot.

The Wild Hunt is interesting as it's the first non-KS expansion. I was initially a little wary as I like choice, and this set comes with only 2 new agents, Hellboy with mahoosive sword and a new back-up agent, Alice Monaghan. However, I'm also acutely aware of the paralysis of choice that can plague games - it's one of my niggles with The Walking Dead, in fact, as there's now almost too many characters to pick from. What The Wild Hunt adds is playability and longevity in spades, with a raft of new monsters and, more importantly, 3 brand-new Case Files (scenarios).

Eligos is the new boss, and there's a dozen new minions (5 different types) for him to bother agents with - I especially like the giants.


The Box full of evil is well... Full!

That's vampires, giant bats, undead mounted Knights and a friendly wolf.


And that's Luchador Hellboy and the gang from Hellboy in Mexico, Oni, floating heads, loads of undead Knights and conquistadors, and 3 more bosses, from Darkness Calls.

Very impressed with the cast. Hard plastic, but almost no flash/mould lines. Great sculpts, really high production values.

Bit of a mad weekend. Boys are performing all weekend (gang show, it's a Scouts thing) so my life is just shuttling kids even more than usual. Ah well. Doubt I'll get some painting done in between but will try. Still, managed to open our box of wave 4 transformers, pulled a Super rare Megatron (very exciting, I mostly play cons), and only missing 3 rares - a very good box indeed.

Till then

Boring busy work continues: the bases all got another couple of layers of tan and grey. It's *very* tedious but worth it in the long term. Also, I'm not in a focused painting mood anyway atm because RL is distracting.

Did do a bit more Pottering...
Moaning Myrtle:

I know that green is not necessarily canon for potter ghosts, but screw it, I like it. I've tried to make the sink full of water (pva) and look like it has splashed over, discolouring the stone.

Not sure if it's worked but still.

And finished off Werewolf Lupin.

And The Grim too.

Dodgy pics, my Ott Light has packed in

And the Sorting Hat


On the subject of green, started Batman's greatest foe:

?‽¿You were expecting someone else?¿‽

Better view of the cloth.

And a bit more on Felthius:

He and his crew need green on their pauldrons etc, bronze edging and then orange wash in all the recesses. Steady progress.

Had a mahogany spillage, disaster. Managed to rescue all of it on to the wet palette - guess that's one way of experimenting!

That's the thing. Km sculpts are quite astonishing in that regard.
Tonight has been a night of blocking in.

Lots and lots of blocking in. That's Lupin, Sirius Black, Filch, Colin Creavy, Tonks, Peter Pettigrew, Mad-Eye Moody and Dobby all fully blocked in, plus further work on Riddler, Tom Riddle (hey!), Starfire, Cho Chang and lots of bits of cloth on Bane's Mercs.

Really looking forward to Cyborg Superman; going to do him in yellow lantern scheme (black/red/silver). Not a huge fan of the character, but I like that storyline and LOVE that he gets to be a member of the Lantern Corps in game.

Nice supply drop! I vote helmets on the Kryptonians, gives them more of an identity on the tabletop and they look like really solid likenesses.
