More renegades. Why you may ask? why not...

Yes, I created another couple of renegade units.  I had the bits and was bored so I threw them together.  Do I need them? No.  Will I use them? possible.  Where they fun to build and will be fun to paint? YES!  One of these days I will need 100+ renegades on the board and when that day comes I will be ready.

New Unit Number 1:

New Unit Number 2:

Some extra flamer throwers:

New Unit Number 3:

New objective marker

I made 5 objective markers last year but never got around to making the 6th one.  So here is objective number 5.

Plague Zombies

Who doesn't love plague zombies?  It baffles my mind that neither GW or FW have made kits for plague zombies.  I thought for sure FW would at least make a conversion kit when the 3rd Vraks book was released.  Sadly it was not so.  The fantasy zombies or terrible and few other companies make decent sci-fi zombies.

Warzone has the undead legionaries which look great but don't really fit in theme wise.

Mantic has a box of 20 plague zombies for $25.  I actually bought 2 of these and was not very happy with them to say the least.  Don't get me wrong, they are a good buy price wise but the detail was not there and they were just not to my liking.

Puppetswar make the best ones I have found to date but they are not cheap.  However, I was forced to buy some as the detail is amazing, quality is great and they fit in very nicely.  I bought 15 initially to make sure I liked them and then ordered 15 more.  I wish they would sell the arms separate for conversion purposes as they look really good.

Mutants for the Lost and the Damn FW army list

The army list from the Lost and the Damned FW book has lots and lots of options.  Some good, some not so good.  Being the devotee of chaos that I am I had to make some of the new units.  I've wanted to make mutants for a long time and previously used beastmen and ungors.  I wanted to try something different this time around.  Its hard to make good mutants without spending a lot of effort and time.  Neither of which I am able to dedicate to my hobby any longer.  So I re-purposed my Victoria Lamb Penal Guard unit to become mutants.  I didn't really have a good idea so I just took flagellent arms and chopped off their hands.  Then I glued blades, flails, hooks, etc in place of the hands.  Sort of like really crummy archo-flagellents.  I threw in a few tentacles and other oddities as well.  I've got some different heads on the way that should help a bit as well.  My plan is to have 2 units of 30.  I've tried to mix in various different bits to make the unit look as though its been formed out of the remnants.

I've used bits from Victoria Lamb, Blight Wheel, Maxmini, Kromlech, GW catachans, and GW flagellents.  The other heads I have coming are from Puppetswar and Ristul.

Here they are so far:

Painting the Iron Hands

I've been paint the Iron Hands when I am able to carve out a bit of time. Its slow going but progress has been made. I've got 2 small tactical units done, 10 man sternguard unit done, 5 terminators 95% done, contemptor 60% done, mast of the forge 75% done. I'll just keep plugging away at these guys until they are finished. Here are some pics of the completed

I've been playing zombicide since season 1 and really enjoy the game.  Its something my wife and other board gamers can easily learn and play.  I decided it was high time to get some of the figures painted up.  I am not spending much time on these.  They are essentially a base coat and a wash.  Maybe 10 minutes per figure on average.  I've still got plenty more to paint but I wanted to get at least enough done for small games.  I've also painted up most the survivors.  I need to buy the original survivor models again.  I had a friend paint my original set and they look so horrible I sold them. They were just terrible.

Oops, looks like I missed the 'Dudes' glasses.

I will probably spray them with a matt finish to get rid of that glossy look to them.
