FOR SALE: 104 fully painted zombies

I am liquidating my collection of zombies, as I need to pay some bills. They are mostly Zombicide zombies with quite a few Wargames Factory zombies mixed in -

I am asking $100 USD for the entire lot, and that price includes USPS Priority Mail shipping. I am only selling these within the Continental United States, as international shipping is too expensive. I only accept PayPal.

If you are interested in this lot, please leave a comment in the comment section and I will instruct you how to get in contact with me.

The Slab: "Know this: These creatures are the bringers of death... -"

"They will never eat, they will never sleep, and they will never stop."

Here are some photos of the finished Reaper BONES Mummies I got for use with Lovecraft's Revenge -

These were actually finished around the time I finished painting the Shoggoth. I just now got around to posting photos. These figures are extremely easy to paint. After priming them, I base coated them with Reaper MSP Bloodless Skin, then once dry, I gave them a thorough wash with Army Painter Dark Tone. After that dried, I gave them a second wash with Army Painter Strong Tone. To finish them off I painted their eyes Reaper MSP Rach Red. One thing I did before priming and painting these, was to glue them to 1" fender washers, as the figures are feather-light, and would be easy to knock over on the game table. I painted the base of each with Reaper MSP Brown Sand and washed it with Army Painter Strong Tone. When I am able to, I will get another pack of these. You can never have too many mummies.

The Slab: You deserve a Shogg today..."

"...at McShoggoth's"

I'd don't know why, but that twisted version of a line from an old McDonald's commercial popped into my head nearly as soon as I started working on the Shoggoth mini - I guess painting minis of Mythos monsters leads to insanity...

Oh well, here's the Shoggoth -

A really easy mini to paint. It's base coated with Reaper MSP HD R.A.M. Black and the eyeballs were picked out with MSP Pale Green. Once everything was dry I gave the mini a good wash of Secret Weapon Green Black wash.

I'm kind of behind on my posts for this month, but I will try and have something in the next couple of days.

Dead-drop: Minis for Lovecraft's Revenge

I ordered some Reaper Miniatures BONES figures last week, and they arrived today. Reaper has a few minis in their BONES line that are from the Lovecraft Mythos, plus others that are reminiscent of Lovecraftian monsters, so I had figured I'd buy some.

One mini I definitely wanted was the Eldritch Demon, which is perfect to represent a Spawn of Cthulhu -

Next I got a Shoggoth -

While not technically a Mythos monster, I got a Faceless Horror, which could proxy for various Lovecraft monsters -

One type of  monster that shows up in quite a few of the location tables in Lovecraft's Revenge, are Mummies, so I got a pack of those -

Those are the monsters I picked up so far, budget limited me from buying more, but I did get one figure to represent an Adventurer/Investigator. The figure is one of the BONES Chronoscope Pulp-era figures, The Black Mist -

The figure is a masked vigilante and I know it might be an odd choice for a character figure in a Lovecraft story, but I am thinking of having a Star that is an Occult Detective with the Psychic attribute, yeah you guessed it, The Shadow. Why not? I mean this gives me a good reason to add the Larger Than Life rule book to my games with Lovecraft's Revenge.

I will be adding more Lovecraft related BONES minis to my collection as budget permits, and I will be saving up for the BONES III Kickstarter Cthulhu minis that are due out later this year -

I've gotta get my hands on a couple of the Mythos Expansion boxes!!!

Addled Ramblings of a Bramaged Dain - Productive Insanity

Today is the last day of January 2017. It has been a fairly productive month, with 21 posts in 31 days - WOW! That's a record for me. I mean, I only had 23 posts all of last year. I am going to try and make 2017 very productive, in terms of posting, painting, and gaming.

One thing I am really looking forward to this year, is gaming Lovecraftian horror. I received a copy of Two Hour Wargames' Lovecraft's Revenge recently and have just finished reading it. I love the way the game can mess with a Star's perception and sanity. It's also neat how this game won't let you just quit when things aren't going your way. There are some very cool twists on THW's core game mechanics. This game also blends in well with other THW titles, like All Things Zombie. I could easily see an ATZ/LR crossover (who knows, I might just do that).

I have added, and will continue to add, new resources that pertain to the Lovecraftian Mythos. New links are in the sidebar and in the Miniatures and Terrain link lists at the bottom of the blog.

I will also be working on the remaining hundred or so zombies I need to finish, just not at the break neck pace I did at the beginning of the year, as I have various other minis, from different genres that need painting.

Music of Madness: Cthulhu Rising: Orchestra and Choir Horror Music

I'm starting a new feature, Music of Madness (MoM), which will feature music related to the Cthulhu Mythos. MoM joins Music To Die For (MTDF), which features music that is general to the Horror/Zombie genre.
