I Love Meeses to Pieces: Bad Squiddo Games – Moose Family (Phil Hynes)

Bad Squiddo Games - Moose Family (Phil Hynes)

A pretty random set of models today – a set of three Moose that I picked up some time ago from one of the Bad Squiddo Kickstarters, along with my Viking Shieldmaidens and various other models. I don’t recall if these were part of the campaign itself or part of the “buy some extra stuff from the store at a special price” thing, but I guess it really doesn’t matter at this point in time.

In a story that’s no doubt quite familiar to readers of this blog, I was looking for something else and found these in a tub, cleaned and with base texture putty applied and nothing else. So I decided to get these three models done and out of the way – so I glued and greenstuffed the antlers onto the daddy moose, primed all three, and then set to taking slightly longer than I wanted in order to get them completed. Though it was at least fairly quick. Now that they’re done, I have no idea what I’ll be doing with them – but they’re finished and can go onto a shelf and then be put away for whatever instance in future I may decide that I need a moose or three for the table… perhaps as Elk for background to some Viking gaming…?

For the size comparison, none of my Shieldmaidens were available, being put away in a figure case, and Berkeley and her chainsaw seemed the wrong kind of model to put with these three, so enjoy this Wood Elf – which is probably one of the only in-lore kinds of models that would be able to skip past some Moose/Elk without seriously disturbing them anyway!

Zombicide 1st Edition, Season 3: 3D Pack Barricades

Just a quickie today. We’re completely into September’s models now, and so I’ve got a couple of pieces that I started several years ago, dug out (ok, found part-painted in a tub and decided to finish) for Dave Stone’s annual Season of Scenery challenge, didn’t get done in time, though now I’ve completed them and can get them the hell out of here and into the War Room. Hopefully I’ll get a whole bunch of other stuff I started/found done as well in the next few weeks and clear some space to start newer projects and models.

They’re pretty simple, small pieces, though they are actually pretty nice. They’d work well enough in any modern or post-apoc setting from Crisis Protocol to Zona Alfa. They are a little small, as noted – but they’re made to fit a certain sized space on a boardgame tile, so I certainly can’t complain there. They came in a pack filled with a whole bunch of 3D doors that open and close – the sort of thing that works well as a game aid but are completely uninteresting as things to paint. I used a little touch of the Dirty Down Rust effect on them here and there as well to try out – I’ll be going harder with it in some later pieces of terrain.

I’ll get August’s round-up done in a week or so. Busy, tired and need to do a bunch of cleaning up before I can get to clearing the desk once again.
