More Hasslefree moderns.

Rocketing at a rate of 1 a day, wow. Going today for MRI etc to see if my hand is fixable or if I am cursed to paint like an arthritic slug forever...
These are without varnish but still shine a bit. Im blaming the camera.

Still 4 more to do. Must make the effort to finish them this week.......

Across the dead earth.

Before I forget, on Lead adventure forum theres aguy called Richard Chappell who is beta testing a set of apocalypse rules and is looking for playtesters. Its in the post apoc section. I have downloaded the rules and they are well worth a look. He is aiming to develop a campaign driven system with progression of characters as opposed to static statlines. You should give it a go. Its great to see such interest in the genre.

Sarissa buildings....

bought a load of the city buildings and painted them with teracotta Dulux tester pots, black wash and rubbed in grey pastel before a spray of matt varnish.
I will get some setup for photographing large items but heres one on a shelf......with a gallows and JD mini/hipflask on top. Just for an idea of how it turned out.

I have also been painting wild west stuff for Dead mans hand but some items like this church may make it into my zombapocalypse....

Sarissa make some lovely kits and as a novice building painter Im not doing them justice.
Heres a better shot of the townhouse to illustrate both the lovely detail and lack of skill.
Anyhoo, back to painting not SG1 and a few more walkers/zeds/differently alive.

Im off to apply more matt to those and finish another few. They are the Hasslefree modern troopers and I have never seen nicer human troops. Ever.
I have to do up the not SG1 quartet and with the others will be using them in ATZ and 7ombie TV, probably 7 TV as well.
I have been burning through zeds and sarissa buildings as well as Dr Who stuff as and when the severly damaged back allows. Had to resurrect the old blog. Like any good walker its hard to put down. Will post some buildings next.
Need to keep this up to make me keep painting, even if nobody is reading.

The shiny thing is pi$$ing me off. In real life they are matt!
