    Deadzone Marauders
    My May month paint pledge was painting all my Marauders for Deadzone. I've just finished them in time.

    As always, there more photos in the blog. There's also a lot text, conversion WIPs etc over here: Bloodbeard's Garage

    I love the style on these orcs. The modern military look is super cool. Mantic will at some point redoo them and make a plastic sprue, I hope the keep this style.




















    As always I appreciate any comments you might have and if you would follow the blog over on Facebook.

      Ogre Mercenary
      really like this Ogre mercenary model for Deadzone, there's something about him that reminds me of the Super Mutants from Fallout. I painted him up in the same colours as my Marauders, but without any GCPS insignia.

      Unlike many of the other models this is Mantic distinct in its feel. So this one could fit into Necromunda as well without feeling like the wrong brand - if that's something you're into.

      I haven't really been using mercenaries in games of Deadzone. But for Star Saga there'll be character cards for all the Deadzone Mercenaries, so they'll properly see some action there. He's also gonna serve some gangs in Scrappers.

      Blog post here. Tutorial on homemade base here.



      Homemade palettes
      Wooden palettes are great little pieces of scatter terrain. I love doing multi purpose terrain and these will work for all my modern, post-apoc and sci-fi games.

      One of the issues with a lot of scatter terrain, is that it'll fall over and get pushed around during games. Often just becoming an annoyance or getting ignored. And like most gamers I have lots of small scatter pieces. Gluing some barrels, crates and cannisters to a palette will prevent that and give the whole thing a bit more mass.

      I've written a tutorial on how I made these. I toke me an hours work to make 12. Bet it'll be even faster the next time I make some.

      Tutorial here: DIY 28mm palettes.

          Started building this piece of terrain years ago, but didn't come around to finishing until now. Very happy with the result and it looks good next to my crane.

          This was a cheap build, the bulk of it being done with sprue and insulation foam.





          I've made a blog post over at the Garage with materials, tools, WIPs, thoughts and a lot more photos of the finished pieces. See it here:

                Finished another industrial building for my scifi battlefields, be it the Underhive, a Deadzone or Post-Apoc Wasteland.

                Another cheap build using toys and sprue to get some extra mass.

                There's some thought on the build, the pieces used, WIPs shots and so on over at the blog:

                But otherwise you can just enjoy the pictures:

                    Asterians
                    Space Elves for Deadzone/Warpath. I'm gonna use these for a lot of other things as well. Splitting these up would bring multible different teams to Scrappers for example.

                    I've written a lot more about the models and stuff done in the blogger: http://bloodbeard.blogspot.dk/p/blog-page_10.html

                    But here's some pictures of the models. There's even more in the blog as well.

                    Thank you sir. It's good fun to work on the blog. It doesn't take any hobby time away, as I always update it at downtime on work and similar times.

                      The Walking Dead
                      King Ezekiel and Shiva
                      Released as 'retail exclusives' in wave 1. Being a fan of the comics I love these two, Ezekiel has one of the best character developments in the story. Shiva was a hard model to paint, no sculpted fur - all flat surface. I think the end result is pretty nice.


                      Lee Everett and Clementine
                      The 'show exclusives' for 2017. I'm not really a fan of the exclusive tag on anything, it tends to only drive prices up on bad guy ebay auctions. The Telltale Games are brilliant, so I had to have these pair. Great models.


                      Walkers


                      Lurkers
                      A type of walker, that starts the game inactive and might wake up if a survivor gets too close.


                      Backpackers
                      In game these will work as regular walkers, but when getting killed they'll then drop a loot token on the ground.


                      The Herd!
                      43 walkers done so far - more than will ever see the table. But it looks cool.


                      Blogger
                      There's as always a lot more photos and words over at the blogger.

                        Deadzone Enforcers!
                        I've done some updates (and a lot more models) for my Enforcer strike team for Deadzone. Very nice models to work with. I call the strike team Niflheim.

                        As always there's a lot of words and more photos at my Blogger:

                          ouhh... long time no update... I was away and couldn't comment on time. I really like the blue/white color scheme for the enforcers. don't really mind the warlkingdead game tbh. but you certainly did a good job there as well.

                          again: the crane is just a great piece of terrain and a real highlight. I don't remember if I have seen a total shot of that piece?
