Doc Sawbones.

Just got into town and have a injury? Rad sickness maybe? Perhaps your party is planning a daring trip into the wastelands? Then go see Doc Sawbones, the best (and only) Doctor in the wastelands.

The figure is by Copplestone miniatures. I am a huge fan of Mark Copplestone's sculpts. There is enough detail to make them interesting but not too much to make them too busy to paint.

I have had this figure painted up for a few weeks now. The base needed finishing. 

Thanks for looking and take care out there.

Mad Max

I have been lusting after these cars for a long while but I could never afford them. I managed to find the 1/43 Mad Max 2 cars on EBay for pre Fury Road prices. That is over half of what they go for. They fit my 28mm minis nicely.

Now I have to dirty them up. I may need to watch Mad Max Road Warrior again, just for research you understand. 

Thanks for looking and stay safe out there.

Hobby update

Welcome back to my blog, yes I am still alive. It has been a few weeks since my last post.

Things have been going slow on the ten figure front. With the caster of the Ten figure messing up the first batch, the caster denying any fault, all manner of vehicle failures (damn potholes are costing me a fortune), technology failures, bike problems (electrics falling to bits), my wife’s ongoing health problems and my never ending man flu, its been a bit of a uphill struggle since the start of the year.

I have been finding getting any real hobby time in. Even painting seems to be going slowly. Remember when I used to be a prolific hobbist? Life eh? That said I have been managing to get some time writing background fluff and working out ideas for Mattblackgod’s World.

The sculptor supplied a second Ten figure, sadly it is way too large so I am not using it. I didn’t pay for it so I am not complaining.

I took delivery of the second batch of Ten figures yesterday. They do look better than the first batch but are still not as good as I would have wanted. In a effort to decide what to do with them I have painted one up, just to see how it would look. This is a WIP. What do you think of the figure?

I am going to look into pricing of the figures and organise a sale thread in a couple of weeks when I work out the numbers.

Thanks for looking, stay safe out there.
