Halloween Spirits

Well its that time of the year again, where all the ghouls and goblins come out and roam the land of the living. I should have stayed in bed apparently. Either way I was down at The Hobbit ' our local game shop', and picking up a 25 g brush for some detail work that needed done and the owner told me of their Halloween competition they were having. Sweet! Painting competitions!
Rules where, the figures have to be of Reaper Design and thats it.

So here I was meandering around the Reaper section, trying to figure out what I should paint, but nothing seemed to pop out at me. After about giving up hope, I found this one packet all by itself...EUREKA! This was it! Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf. If that dont scream Halloween, I dont know what does.

Already started on the lass, and when I get them painted up and on their small diorama base I will post some pics. Till then, Ciao.

Also why trolling the forums over at There is a competition, a Transportation build off. Some interesting rules, while kits are allowed, but only in moderation, you must scratch build most of the model. Groovy. For sometime I had a great transport devise in mind for my fantasy dwarfs...come on, they are the masters of engineering! Ive sketched up a few ideas and will set it in motion. Later on I will post these as well...good times lay ahead.

Some Terrain Goodness

At this time I am working on several pieces of terrain. One in particular I wanna talk about is a hillside defense piece. It comes with a handy dandy broken down ruins, a hasty dug trench and a cut out area where (heres the catcher) you can interchange either Fences(for the fantasy/older war games) or barbed wire strands(for WW2 or anything more modern, apocolyptic) use. I got some pics taken in its first phase form and I will get those bad boys up soon.

As promised here are the beginning stages of the terrain piece I am cooking up.

Meandering around.

Every once in awhile I will wonder around the internet and see what I can find. I look at people sites for inspiration and just general ideas on certain things I am working on. Never hurts to have a "new" set of eyes for a project you are working on.

I happened to stumble upon this gents website and what a beaut she is. Has great articles on collect a ECW army along with a CSM 40k as well. A free set of rules and other just plain goodness. Heres the link, I hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.
