The Dark Confederacy for Dracula's America


It's been quite a while since I last posted. Sorry. Been busy settling in to the new house...not helped by various issues with our broadband as well as my laptop choosing this moment to die. Needless to say, there has been no wargaming...it's all still in boxes and is likely to remain so while we get some much needed jobs done on the new house. Sigh.

I did, however, get my latest lot of figs back from Matt a week or two ago and I finally got around to taking a few quick pics. Sorry for the lack of scenery.



These are some Dark Confederacy figs for Dracula's America. Matt has done a fantastic job as always. Really pleased with them!

He also did some figs for The Skinwalker Tribes...


These will go with the Dead Man's Hand Renegade Indians I already have...enough to make up a posse. I'll get around to digging them out of a box at some point and taking some pics of them all together.

That said, I've decided I don't much like the Wolf...his front paw seems unnaturally posed (I've checked out pics of other people's and it is the same on every model) so I shall be looking for another large wolf...any suggestions very welcome!

Matt will also be doing some Red Hand Coven and Crossroads Cult figs for me over the next few months along with assorted other Wild West figs to go with all the Dead Man's Hand ones I already have (check out the Dead Man's Hand label on the right if you want to see them in action).

I might even manage to get a game in at some point...

Goodfellas!


Enforcer and Gun Moll 

 Things have been so busy over the last month that I've not had a chance to show off all the Copplestone Gangster figs that Matt has done for me over the last few months. Time to remedy that!

More Enforcers or Bosses
Hoodlums and Gun Molls
More Hoodlums and Gun Molls
Sluggers and Punks
Gun Molls or Civilians
Civilians and Accountants
Cops


Sorry about the lack of terrain...it's all still in boxes in the garage! Hopefully it won't be too long before I can dig some out and actually get a game of Mad Dogs with Guns in!

Philip Hynes' Bear Heads Miniatures Kickstarter

Just in case anyone has missed it, there is another interesting Kickstarter running at the moment. This one is for an eclectic series of minis sculpted by the talented Philip Hynes...ranging from H P Lovecraft and Edgar Allan Poe to Undead Spartans via a Kirk Douglas Viking and the Frankenstein monster! Check it out here.

The Undead Spartans, in particular, are superb...







...and there is the promise of more figs to come before the end of the Kickstarter, including more Undead Spartans.

The Lost World of Lemuria - Pulp Alley Kickstarter


 Things are finally starting to settle down after the big move. Sadly, I've not had much time for my blog or anyone elses, I'm afraid...but I'm looking forward to catching up on what everyone has been up to and maybe even dig through some boxes and get some games in!

Anyway, I'm sure you have all missed my posts about the latest exciting releases and so with that in mind....



Pulp Alley are doing a Kickstarter for their latest book...The Lost World of Lemuria...along with a variety of card decks and minis. Check it out here! Looks absolutely brilliant. Can't wait to get my hands on this. With the exchange rate being so poor at the moment, though, and the shipping, therefore, being a bit pricey...I may actually wait until Sally 4th and Statuesque Miniatures get it in stock.

Anyway, here are a few pics of some of what's up for grabs...





Gotta love Kickstaters!

Intermission


Moving house this week. And we're going to be without broadband until the end of August beginning of September...it seems calling BT two weeks before the move was leaving things too late. Grrr. So this blog will be taking a little holiday. Back in September!

IPMS Avon Plastic Model and Wargaming Show 2017


Sadly this year I'm not going to my local wargames show, even though it's in my home town...just to much to do as we're (finally!) moving house next week (for the last time)...but I'd recommend it for anyone nearby.

Just time for a quick post while I wait on hold to do another address change...Dracula's America arrived today!
