Bikes are Corgi with plastic Catachan riders.

Bikes are Corgi?
Some look like Hot Wheels/Matchbox bikes. Does Corgi make a similar line? :-)

Hi thanks for the replies , I was just thinking last night that I may be too pushy posting everything I've painted lately .
The me in Pink Jacket is (below), I just swapped his right hand with a spare Foundry German Para Luger and hand that was left over from a conversion.

thank you ... My hope was an option in the original miniature ... I will have to find a spare hand too.

I've just painted some more Zombies.
Gary Hunt Miniatures with a Hasslefree Zombie as a size guide. I prefer Zombies with clothing as you can add so much character to them . I added a basketball , cricket ball and a Rugby ball to these figures . The Hasslefree figure was screaming out No 8 to me . ;)

The Hasslefree figures which  turned out much better than I expected.

Heresy Gouls.


I have also made up my mind about the setting for my games . Its basically the Bar area in my home town in about 25 years . Some buildings will be based on ones there and some others from my travels.
The first one is a Gentlemans Club  ;) built using Matakashi's cork tile method. I spent way too much time on this trying out different ideas and detailed the interior.

Excellent work on all of it, Dan, but that building just takes the cake. Brilliant.

I really like the building too! I assume it is made out of cork. How is it holding up? How did you glue it together? PVA? I'm interested in making some buildings that size but I'm not sure how to approach it :s Some of my friends' cork has warped quite a bit when gluing...

What are your experiences like?

I have been using Gorilla Glue to glue the Cork Tile , but find it a bit messy as it can expand quite a bit . The only warping I've had has been because of bad storage of the tiles before building .
I used quite a bit of UHU glue and also Balsa Cement after the base building was built.
Sometime I add some supports where I think I will have problems with warping . My Stalingrad Factory springs to mind which has not had any bad warping in over a year of use . The sections on that are built from almost whole sections of tiles.
