I thought that Sarah Jane was a conversion, but thats the entire figure! Never paid attention to the Anima Tactics figs, but there are a few that scream out to be bought.

Thank you all for the comments!  :)
I should have mentioned that Lady Fairfax is not a conversion but a straightforward Anima Tactics mini. She's a little tall compared to the Bluemoon stuff but I'm not overly concerned with accurate scaling for "game" pieces.
It seems an absolute age since I've painted or modelled anything. I really enjoyed doing these two and I have a number of suitable minis lined up for some VSF Zombie type mayhem.
I'm also trying to get my head around some 3D Paint programmes to create some Georgian/Victorian card buildings. I've seen some American type ones but nothing for Regency style terrace houses etc. Finding suitable source material without copyright issues is a problem.
I'll post my results as i go.

Really lovely. Lady Sarah Jane is fantastic, but am I the only one who gets the distinct impression that her day job involves standing in the cardboard tube of a loo roll?  ;D

Nice idea, nice paint jobs and nice conversion.
That's all we could ask for.

You might want to check out this book.  Don't let its title throw you.  The book's strength lies in its abundance of beautiful watercolour illustrations of the various styles of English architecture and construction methods, from about 1500 to 1900, with lots of floor plans.  There aren't a lot of samples of Georgian architecture, other than a couple of multi-storey homes, but there are a few more plans for Victorians.  There is a good number of Tudor and Stuart buildings shown, though, as well as some cottages.  It's one of those books than I treasure for its simple beauty as well as the information it contains.  Well worth the price.

Thanks again for the comments.
Cheers Archangel1 for the tip about the book . I'll look out for it.

Just a quick pic off two more Zeds from my Bluemoon civillians.
The "Drunk" has had his bottle removed and replaced with a half-eaten head and the other one hasn't been modded at all ( she looked kind of zombie-like anyway!!!)



I'll hopefully get some more done at the weekend.

PM,

I love these figures. Please keep posting more pics  :-*

By the way, if you do get around to making some card buildings, I for one would be very interested in getting some PDFs if you were to make them available. I'd be happy to pay a contribution, as I need some 19thC British buildings for my upcoming "Torchwood 19thC" project, the idea for which I stole from another LAFer whose name I forget. Sorry  :(

I can't afford to buy resin etc and my scratchbuilding skills are dodgy at best, so card is the best thing for me.

Please keep us updated on any progress.

Cheers  :)

Really nice work. I really like that Anima figure. For some reason it seems to be the only one in the lot my local store seems unable to obtain.

Looking forward to further posts.

Thanks for the comments!
I'll keep them coming as quick as I can ( without getting sidetracked by other projects!!!)

I had a few problems myself locating the Anima figure as it appears to be very popular!!!

Gluteus Maximus: I'll keep you posted ref the buildings. I intend to produce some .pdf kits when I'm done.

Thought I'd post a couple more pictures of some Victorian stuff I've been working on.

I'm not sure how good the hansom cab would be in a zombie infested London ( my steam coach would be more practical) but I like the model. It's from Westwind and is a lovely little kit.



Next up is "Seamus O'Keefe" a gentleman's barber. Armed only with his trusty razors ( and sharp wit!) he is ready to take on he undead hordes....
"A little more off the top , Sir?



He's another Westwind mini with a razor made from plasticard.

I'll post some more Zombies and Survivors shortly.
