Rumors of my Demise...

Life being what it is, I'm not even going to offer any excuses as to why I have not posted since July 4.  I guess we will all need to come to terms with the reality that this blog will be sporadic...

Anyway, here are two more minis I've painted recently.  That makes 9 of Bobby Jackson's Thugs for my collection.  I have the other 3 in the queue to be painted.


There is not much to say about these figures that I haven't already said.  Exceptional quality and fairly easy to paint.  The baby on the woman's hip was a bit fiddly, but I think it turned out OK.  She certainly adds a lot of character to the game.  I did modify the man slightly.  He came with a topknot or maybe a beany for a hat on top of his head.  I thought it was silly so I shaved it off and left him bald with a bandana.

From the photo you may be able to notice I've also been working on some Stoelzel's Structures.  For the keen of eye you will recognize the Farmhouse from that collection.  These are great models.  I will post more about them later.  I've also been working on some cardstock vehicles...more on those later too.

I've decided I will revamp and start a new campaign with the introduction of All Things Zombie: Final Fade Out.  I'm looking forward to the new rules being released.  I've begun some initial character development and am creating a story tree, making up my own Day One and following series of encounters.  Look for more on that later too.

Meanwhile, I'm expanding my collection, one model at a time.  Until next post...peace.

    1. Thanks, Carl. I will be posting more soon. And thanks for your amazing buildings! I'm building the Farmhouse and looking forward to building more. I was wondering today if you would ever be designing a church?

    2. I've talked about this on our forum (come check us out on http://www.phpbbplanet.com/stoelzelsstruct/). In short, the I have twoprojects right now that are about 80 percent done, but have little time for this month draw. The next project I am going to start is a modular church, like the mansion series.
