Miniature Mondays
Rocco from Comfy chair games is now "Thing" from the marvel universe. This was a fun and easy to paint figure. He will be in supersystem 3 gameplay. If guardians chronicles has a print and play feature on their site he may make it to that system also.

My son and his friend played a game of 40k. Chaos Space Marine vs Space Marines.... I think My son almost won, but they took a break to finish painting some more figs and then it was time for his friend to go home. We shall call it a draw. :)

Super Heroes....  I got in my other order from Crossover miniatures. I got Dr.Evil and the Thug leader from the Kickstarter. The figure on the far left is Rocco from Comfy Chair Games. If you cant tell he is a Thing knockoff. Dr. Evil will more than likely get the squid head.

Below is the Spinespur Xmas collection. I have coveted this set for a while. I finally contacted Comfy Chair games about purchasing and bought the set. This set has been on my wishlist since I found out about spinespur. I will also use these as a villain team in supersystem 3 eventually.
Legend of Drizzt figures below. They are the raptors I have primed and ready to go to paint. Once I am off my medicine and can paint straight I will be back on these.

as you can tell I am all over the place painting. So many games and so little time, but I like it.

A big shout out to Aberrant Games I had ordered one of their figures from a web site (not them, an online retailer) and I just put the figure back because I knew I would eventually get to it. Well I opened the package, and the figure was there, but the arm and gun were missing. I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me one right away. Very pleasant experience, people make mistakes, it might have gotten mis packed or at the retailer it might have fell off the shelf, gotten opened and someone just put the figure back in. (they aren't sealed) I was glad they made it right. I don't play the game, but I use their CSO figures for SWAT forces in zombie games, and their zombies are pretty awesome also.

My Legend of Drizzt came in. An adventrue board game, think diablo 2 on table top. Here is some picks from the inside. That is a big ass dragon.

Here is Drizzt himself I painted him....
I also got some munchkins in. The conan pack I bought off of ebay, the seller is supposed to send a new one. The one sent was bent to hell and back.

 traded some crap in at 2nd and charlse... got munchkin zombies.

Just finished a rezolution zombie, and a Mantic/Hasslefree minis survivor. I will be using both in some zombie games. The survivor will also be used in spinespur as a moltov thug for the orphanage faction. I like taking minis from other games and adding to the spinespur universe. I like making the thugs fit theme.

A kickstarter just came in

2013 09 05 20 06 53

I pledged late to the kickstarter. I had just pledge my budget for guardian chronicles. Guardian chronicles is a board game (super heroes) with a bunch of heroes. This one had some cool heroes but I was tapped. I was in luck, they had a small pledge that included these thugs. So for a nominal fee I pledged. They arrived today. 

But that is not all, my order for City of Heroes/Villains came in also. I already had a set of the clix, but I did not want to ruin my set of clix. I decided it might be best to get another set. I found a set on ebay pretty cheap. Now I just have to tweak the paint and base these guys. Oh yeah, I gotta come up with powers for them in supersystem 3.

The Villains

 The Heroes

Yes there is Dr. Destiny a villain in this group from DC. But I will repaint him to make him Tombstone from
Freedom Force. I will have the batman's and iron man's of the world also, but it will be cool to play some lesser known heroes and villains also.

I am still in the process of building terrain as you can see in the first pic. I plan to do some zombie gaming along with some super hero gaming.

first blog post

I am new to the table top, board gaming scene. My son actually dragged me in when he wanted some warhammer 40k armies. I really liked the idea of building models and then go to war with them. I was all about some 40k until they decided to change their procedures on how I can buy their product. I will still keep my stuff, and maybe play from time to time, but I have since went to look for other games that 1) want me to buy their stuff and 2) don't care how I purchase them as long as its legal. 40k only meets half of that criteria.

Since my distaste for the previous mini company i set out to find another brand. I did on Kickstarter. I found all kinds of cool and awesome games. I found Myth, Spinespur, Guardian Chronicles, DeadZone/Warpath ,Zombicide and multitude of zombie and superhero games. I could go on and on but those are just a sampling of other gaming goodness that are good substitutes.
