LAM (5) – Royal Hunters

Just finished another couple of the fantastic Lead Adventure Miniatures figures, this time the Royal Hunters.  Lots of fun to paint as usual.

Black and White Zombies (2)

I’ve been aquiring Mantic Zombies for a  while now and somehow they never seem to get to the front of the paint queue.  There always seems something I’d rather be doing.  Mostly, they seem  time consuming for something that will appear in hordes and is really never in center stage.  They are impressive due to […]

LAM (4) – Her Majesty’s Task Force

I just finished these lads up.  I’m a huge fan of the British figures in the Lead Adventure Miniatures 1881 line.  They are a bit intimidating due to the amount of detail and general awesomeness of the figures.  I’m really happy with the lad with the fury coat, but I’d have like to have chosen […]

Dogs of War

I found these fantastic minis at Warlord Games in the Ancient Britons range.  I’ve always fancied painting some and the Ancient Britons range fascinates me, but two things have always stopped me from buying any.  1. I don’t have any interest in any of their oppononts, except maybe the Picts but I don’t have enough […]

LAM London Bobbies

I didn’t plan to paint these lads so early in the VSF world, but due to an order mix-up I became the proud owner of them.  They really grew on me from the start.  My original plan for my VSF forces involves defending Britain from Zombies and fighting Prussian spies, so the muscle is going […]

Lead Adventure Miniatures – Guns with many barrels

This was my second lot of LAM figures and I found them even easier to paint than the first set, they have much larger areas to paint and still wear the fantastic top hats that I’ve come to love. Not much to comment on, I followed the LAM paint schemes for the most part with just a […]

Lead Adventure Miniatures – Bonnie and Clyde

I’ve had these folks for about six months now and have been looking forward painting them for even longer.   At first I was intimidated by the level of detail in the sculpts but it didn’t turn out to be daunting at all.  In fact, it seemed a perfect level of detail and with some […]

New Project: VSF vs. Alien Invasion with Zombie Rules

I’ve been waiting a long time for a package to arrive recently and that has brought a long time reading message boards/blogs and surfing miniature companies. This has lead me to expand the number of sources that I read on a regular basis. One of the new additions to the daily check is the Lead […]

Maximillian Ready For Play

I started this guy a while ago, but became discouraged as I assembled him, then quickly dropped it twice. The second time loosing the newly repaired arm into a dark unknown corner of my basement where I prime models. He sat for at least three weeks while I looked at him once in a while […]

Flag Bearer Conversion

The British troops last carried a standard into battle at Laing’s Nek, and therefore the Baccus range doesn’t have any colonial Brits with flags. I like flags with my troops dammit, and my Brits will be carrying one on Mars. So, I took a marching pose trooper and cut off the rifle, drilled out (with […]
