This guy gives me 40 bucks a month to put it here, and I ain't gotta do jack...except rake in the Jack!!
I adopted a dog a few months ago. Her name is Furiosa H. Dawg. She is a Stratfordshire Pit Bull. She may have some bull dog in her too. She is a great dog.
This little kitteh is Viet-Minnie. She was rescued from the middle of a busy highway by a nice guy. He brought her into the vet. VM was 4 weeks old. She is now much older and quite a trouble maker. I lost some quick reference sheets for a while. I started to learn a game "Tonkin" and noticed I was missing key battle data. What probably happened is a mischievous bite kitteh pushed the sheets under my bed. I went on Board Game Geek to request PdF copies of the missing sheets. Here is a picture of Viet-Minnie caught in the act eating paper. She is laying on the missing sheets too.
These next few photos are of Viet-Minnie photo bombing my eBay auctions.
Furiosa and Viet-Minnie are close Doggeh / Kitteh friends. Viet-Minnie was the first kitteh Furiosa was able to be around. She treated Viet-Minnie like a little puppy and tried to take care of her. We had to pay close attention to the two of them because of what would happen if a 60 lb dog was to lay on an 8 ounce kitten.
The first bit of today's entry is my Scrappers warband. I made a Sons of Entropy team. There are lots of warlord games plastics, some mantic Kings of War, a Reaper model and an unknown resin figure (I cannot remember the company). This started as a Ecotopian force. I wanted my figures to have a strong Welsh or Celtic theme. I combined ww2 weaponry and kit with celtic WG figures.
It didn't really turn out how I planned. I like the end results, but it wasn't what I planned. It seems that is how most of life happens. No amount of planning ever replaces dumb luck.
What I got instead is a very eclectic group of individuals. It makes sense seeing on how the Sons of Entropy have entropy in their name. They are barely contained chaos that conducts raids, pillages and murders freely.
I'll have more on the warband's backstory next entry (hopefully) next week.
In the mean time meet ToeCutter. I know the name is not original. It's such a great name for a villain. Does he really cut people's toes off? ToeCutter is an infiltration and knife fighting specialist. His Thompson is there in case he has to shoot at something (and aiming doesn't matter). He is a True Human.
Molly Magika is the other Veteran (I forgot to say ToeCutter is a Veteran). She is a mutant. Unlike most mutants she has pointy ears and is very lovely to look at. You could say she is an elf. MM is an amoral, unhinged individual. She isn't a predator or a sadist. Instead she doesn't distinguish between good and evil, right and wrong. Molly doesn't look for trouble. But she usually gets herself into situations where something bad happened and she caused it.
This half-naked green guy is the Cucumber. He doesn't have a name. He also never speaks or utters any sounds. The Cucumber is an enigma. He adores Molly Magicka and follows her everywhere. Although she never returns any affection for him, he would willingly die for her. He also smells awful (and his special skill is the bad odor trait). Molly never seems to notice. The rest of the warband steers clear of him.
These guys are the honor bound, chivalric and color blind leader, a psychopath who happens to have faint memories of being a clown, and a tribal barbarian type. I'll have more on them next week =D
As promised I have finished some of my Bauhaus Platoon for Mutant Chronicles: Warzone Resurrection. I am really excited to get this started. This game is my regular Saturday night thing. I can't wait to finish painting enough to try playing it.
This is Angelika Drachen. She is the leader of the Bauhaus force. From what I can tell she is really good at melee. But getting her into melee may be a challenge. Shooting in this game is fairly lethal. It reminds me of Infinity.
Here is the first squad of Bauhaus Hussars. These guys are the first edition of the kickstarter. The newer models have more detail and more dynamic poses. After they are painted I really don't notice that there are only two poses.
Next week I will post some more neat stuff. I am about to finish a Viking III/40a (Viking Raiders) DbA army in 6mm. I will also post the rest of the Scrappers warband. I have been finishing up little projects that are laying around. It is a great feeling to clear out older projects. My goal is to only have a few projects instead of 10+ projects.
The majority of my open projects are small, ten models or less things. The only really giant project I have is the Bauhaus force. I actually have it all and will eventually assemble it.
Oh, I also have an alternate model for a Bauhaus Mule ApC. I am super excited about it. It actually matches up to the Prodos Games Mule model. Super cool.
Check back next week =D
