Hey, I almost missed this!  Glad to see another Charles Stross aficionado on this site.  Great figures here, the nondescript "William Killian" would make a credible Bob Howard if you gave him a phone and a Hand of Glory (earlier books) or horrifying psychic powers (later ones).  Not sure if there's a figure out there for Mo with her violin, barring major conversion work :)

There was a discussion on using the Casual May figure.

Nice work! (The only problem with making him Bob is that he could wave his warrant card at the RHRs & they'd have to do as he says! If you hadn't already guessed, I'm also a fan of the Laundry series)

Only post Fuller Memorandum, and the warrant card only works on the ones the Laundry raised.

I am using the Hasslefree Hazmat with computer as Bob, the Artist's Rifles being Hazmat troopers.

That is one of the reasons I was pushing the SDKFZ 2 on the Rubicon forum.

Tents provide accommodation in the post apocalypse world.

Renedra small ridge tent on a 60mm Renedra base.







The larger tent.

At Salute this year, Mantic Games were giving away a free walker figure.

Having been impressed with Opponent Theory's tutorial (https://opponent-theory.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/zombies-painting-tutorial.html) I decided I would give it a go.

I suspect my paint box has slightly different colours, especially the Leather Brown.





No where near as good as Opponent Theory's.

This is Andrea's sister Amy, from the Andrea booster pack for The Walking Dead.


She has a matching base to the walker from the booster pack (as will Andrea).

The last figure I have completed from the Andrea Booster is Andrea herself.

There are a few bits that need some additional washing.

You can see the "Andrea Booster" cardboard box on the base.


Andrea and Amy


The whole booster pack.

As you may know in the "Days Gone Bye" expansion for "The Walking Dead: All Out War" there is a a character creation system. So I thought I would paint up a Crooked Dice William Killian figure as a survivor.







A comparison with Andrea. He is slightly smaller.


Once I have put together the character, I will post it. He is a Support character with Healing and Level Headed.

Any suggestions on rules for a Gladius (Sharp, Dual Wield are obvious. probably one White Dice).

I do not have Michonne so do not know what the katana rules are (I will need them for the next custom character, and body armour) but would like the gladius to be different.

Having painted up a model of William, I thought I should paint  up a model of his wife.




And once more William is in the thick of it, he is glad he insisted on May completing the Kendo course.

Another long time between posts.

You would think that being the sheriff of a small town miles from anywhere would be easy.

Except for that Government research facility out on the edge of town, the unmarked lorries, the black sedans, the lights in the sky and the rumbles underground.

The sheriff's personal life may be a shambles, but when the ichor hits the ventilation system, he is there protecting his community with his trusty pump action shotgun.


Crooked Dice Hero Cop A.



William Killian and Andrea (TWD) for scale.


I have two deputies awaiting painting.

Though I have painted walkers from other sets and the freebie from Salute 2018, this is the first from the box set.


This was a test paint using Citadel Rakesh Flesh for the skin tone.

Here it is with the freebie (which is also a figure from All Out War).

You're getting there. Nice flesh tone on this zombie girl
