It has been a while since I last posted a blog. Since March this year it seems that time has moved faster than normal at the same time that real life has increased.
I have been doing hobby/zombie things though.
On the wargames front, I have purchased around 40 15mm zombies from Khurasan miniatures. They are glued on to bases ready to have the bases and the minis prepped before painting.
I have recently placed an order for some extra bits from Khurasan, such as the scientist figures.
I also have some jersey barriers from Rebel miniatures in 15mm scale which virtually don't need painting at all, as they arrived having been cast in cement colour resin.
I am waiting on another order from Rebel Miniatures - a pack of 20 (?) zombies, which includes the zombie clown... which I will use as an evil clown, not a zombie clown.
I have two MDF 15mm scale ruins from Warbases to use in any and all games I will play with my 15mm minis. They area a good price and I intend to get a few more to add to the collection: http://war-bases.co.uk/BUILDINGS/WW2-15MM
On the to be painted bench are some 15mm scale body bags and oil drums, courtesy of The Scene: http://thesceneuk.com/ There are a lot of interesting things for sale on their web site, and I will probably order from them again soon.
I did play a zombie game last weekend - I tried out the Pulp Alley rules with my 28mm WWW2 figures. The rules are great, but I will need to adjust them to match the type of game that I want to play. Basically keep the mechanics, but make the game last longer than the six turns suggested in the rule book for scenarios.
I have recently started using face book, so one or two of you may have seen some images I posted on a zombie wargaming face book page that Brummie invited me to. Cheers Brummie!
The other zombie things I mentioned at the start include doing a lot of reading of zombie books, so I will have to do some book reviews.
I have watched a few zombie movies, and one of them, called "Zombie Night" was so bad I didn't finish watching it, and that is saying something, as I almost never stop watching something once I start. The acting was bad, the plot sad, and characters so pathetically stupid that I hope they were all eating by the end of the movie.
On a personal front, I had a cancer tumour removed from my head at the start of June. The hole on the side of my head is only just starting to heal, and I have to have an operation at the start of August to make sure they cleaned it all out. So when I attend my Brother in Law's wedding at the end of August I will have a bit of a Frankenstein's monster look about me.
Apparently the cancer is "the type of cancer you want to have if you have to have cancer". Not many people die from what I have, so unless it was worse than they thought I will recover.
So as soon as I decide to pull my finger out I have a lot to blog about.
