  1. I finished painting my Rad Zombies. TNT Rad Zombie aren't supernatural, Night of the Living Dead zombies, but are rather humans infected with a peculiar form of radiation sickness that makes them zombie-like. With this in mind I purchased Pig Iron Productions' Infected models and painted their flesh with a mix of GW's Rakarth Flesh and Kislev Flesh with greenish grey shading. The tones and the shading are a bit subtle, so they did't come across in the photo very well. TNT's fluff states that "[l]egend has it that most rad zombies are Last Americans irradiated during the Great Fall.
  2. Ish, where's your report on the new edition? Don't make me go all 'Rankin/Bass Lord-of-the-Lash' on you.
  3. Well, dammit, get to it!
  4. Ish, how's the new edition?
  5. Blaster Magazine is a quarterly periodical written by coalition of 5 indi-game designers. They include the authors of TNT, Frostgrave, and Gaslands. Through Blaster, the game designers as able to provide fun one-off projects and new rules for their existing games. In advance of both volumes 1 and 2, the authors have streamed a Zoom chat where they discuss what they've been working on and what to expect from the upcoming issue. In the most recent Zoom chat Joseph A. McCullough, the author of Frostgrave announced that his contribution to Blaster volume 2 will include Ct
  6. On Saturday, my 'Battlefield in a Box' Toxic River arrived in the mail. I don't own any of GF9's river sets, so I can't compare the quality of the toxic river pieces to GF9's other products, but these pieces have some good weight to them and they look and feel fairly durable. The paint job is quite good and the each piece has a matte finish, which even though it's supposed to be "goo", I prefer. The set is bit spendy, but the shipping was free, it arrived fairly quickly, and the set includes enough river pieces to make a six feet of river. Overall, I feel like I got my money's wort
  7. Much of my "hobby time" has been consumed other projects, but I finally got back to my painting table long enough to put some paint on the Terror Turkey. The model is made by Bear's Head Miniatures. Bear's Head named it a Terror Turkey, but to me it looks like a Cenozoic era Terror Bird with the tail of a Mesozoic microraptor. I changed the model's tail so it looks more like it's namesake. I emphasized the turkey aspect even more by using photos of wild turkeys to serve as a rough guide for how I painted it. Ruleswise, the Terror Turkey will be a Mutant Horror with the Big
  8. Eight Rad Zombies and three Irradiators ready for primer and paint.
  9. These look amazing. They also sell tar pits/pools and a river of tar.
  10. One more critter checked off the Dangerous Creatures table. Similar I used a very simple technique to knock these models out rather quickly. This time, rather than using Contrast paints, I used multiple coats of washes: GW's Drakenhof Nightshade for the body and a Nuln Oil for the wings. Big Skeeters
  11. That f’ing Moon-Moon ruins everything. πŸ˜‰
  12. More progress. Greater Mutant Scorpion (aka my GW Contrast paint fail) Trog King \ Wastewolves (the middle wolf looks way too happy) Plague Carrier My TNT critter to-do list is shrinking. πŸ™‚
  13. Watch out all you Eloi, my Trogs are ready to hit the streets of post-apocalypse Seattle. Also on the wasteland menu for today is a side order of Toxic Jelly. Nine more wasteland creatures done, many more to go. πŸ™‚
  14. It Came From The Wastes! is the newest TNT supplement. Inspired by low budget monster movies, this supplement provides rules rules for battling really big wasteland beasties. LINKY
  15. As I paint the six Trogs and the Trog King, I take breaks to assemble and prep other models for paint. The Whizkid's Ooze arrived in the mail yesterday. Getting them off their bases was a chore. I had to saw through the very bottom of each model to free them from their original bases. I attached each model to its new base with a tiny dab of super glue, and then added scattered bones and texture to the bases. Now that the texture is dry, I am going to pop the models off of their bases. This will allow me to quickly primer and paint each base. Once the bases are done, I wil
  16. For the last few days its been too hot to paint, so I've been using my nightly 2-3 hours of hobby time to assemble and prep models for painting. Last night I worked on my Wastewolves, These models are OOP Dire Wolves from Redbox Games. I mounted them on 32mm rounds and used bits from Green Stuff World's Dump Yard Plates and resin bottles and cans from Tabletop Art's Beverage Bottles and Cans set, to add a wasteland feel to the bases. I still need to glue sand to the bases to add texture.
  17. It's funny that you mention rotating the model. I had the same idea and had experimented with it for a bit. Problem is, the bones take up too much space, so repositioning the model in this way left the model shoved to the front of the base with a big (mostly) empty area behind it. You can have a model near the front of a base if there is scenery on the base behind the model that is the model's height or taller. To make the bones/remains on the ground gimmick work, I would have to put the model on a much larger base with room enough both in front of and behind the model for basing detai
  18. You broke the seal on this forum. Prior to your post, nobody had posted in the Bellingham Warhamsters sub-forum in 176 days (a week shy of 6 months).
  19. My original idea for a Plague Carrier was to use a converted GW plague bearer (I have a few left over from my Mordheim Carnival of Chaos project), but after digging through my many boxes and bags of unused minis, I happened upon the minis from the Black Crab Miniatures 2: Necropolis Scum Kickstarter. These miniatures were inspired by the drawings of Black Crab Art artist, Moritz. I haven't had the occasion to use any of these wonderfully morose and wretched miniatures, but using one to represent the bringer of plague and death to a post-apocalyptic wasteland seems quite fitting. The min
  20. I already have one of the Psychic Husk models made by World's End Publishing, the company that makes TNT. However, 'Dangerous' creatures appear in packs of 3, so I need two more and I'd like some variety. I haven't spent any time looking for them yet, but I imagine there are ghost or spirit models that would work. Instead of painting them ghost-like, I'd paint them like a corporeal model with pale skin and black eye sockets.
  21. Yup. Giant ants. The author does plenty of borrowing from other works. Sometime it's very obvious, other times a little less so. The Preservers are one of the 6 warband types in the core rulebook. Clearly, he borrowed the warband's underlying philosophy from the classic post-apoc novel, A Canticle for Leibowitz.
  22. These are the random encounter tables I've been working from. Creatures marked WIP are models that I own, but haven't yet been painted. I'm still shopping around for the models marked 'WANT'. My obsessive nature compels me to collect and paint some of these beasties, but not all of them. Eight creatures types from the Nuisance table and six creature types from the other two tables will give my games a good variety of creature types. πŸ˜‰ My rad dog models can pull double duty as Chupacabra or Wild dogs. They could serve as Plague Carriers and Waste Wolves as well. I've replaced
  23. I finished the last 3 Wild Mutants. Below is a group shot of all 6 models.
  24. RN Estudio sells 3D resin casts, 3D sculplting serves, and they will even print your STL files for you. They appear to be based in Spain. LINKY I purchased some Punkapocalyptic minis from the online retailer, Noble Knight Games. These minis came in Punkapocalyptic packaging but don't appear in Punkapocalyptic's online store. RN Estudio sells these same minis, so my guess is that RN Estudio does design and possibly production work for Bad Roll Games (the maker of Punkapocalyptic). I purchased the following two minis for my TNT Raider warband, The Jackalopes. I'll report ba
