Graffam Sci-Fi #3

Third of my Graffam Sci Builds is now done. This was a complicated one. a large footprint and flat roof, with cover.

Fat Dragon Modern Buildings

During my Hobby Shed tidy-up I had call to check out my box of card stock modern\near future buildings (free from Germy and still recommended ). They haven't had a lot of use recently but were looking much the worse for wear all the same (especially as these were the first card stock builds I made - a bit of a cowboy job, even for me!).So I've been casually looking around for replacements (especially since Zomtober).

Scooby Gang vs The Zombie Lord

After the fun of our previous game of Faith and Fear, the Scooby gang were sent out on another mission.
The Zombie Lord was infecting the local water supply by pouring his zombie poison down an old natural well. The Scooby Gang had to destroy the barrel.

SoBH Campaign 4 - Battle 9

Scenario - Heist

The scenario was simple. The First Law had hired a thief to steal something special. The Everglade Guardians were on her trail to get the loot back, so she'd gone to ground in one of six locations on the table. The Elves were to search the locations (a 12 on 2d6 found her, with extra bonus' the more locations searched), whilst avoiding the attentions of The First Law.

Graffam Sci-Fi #2

The second of my Graffam lunchtime builds: Observation Tower v2.

A pretty simple build. The gun\observation ports were a bit fiddly for my big tattie howker hands. All fingers and thumbs to get them on the side. The version 1 of this model just has the flat textures of these, and despite my best\worst efforts these 3D additions look worth it. No recognisable door it has to be said, not that you'd be putting anyone inside for gameplay.

Here is a comparison shot next to the previous model.

This build was actually finished a couple of weeks ago. I'm about 75% through the Delux Bunker kit, which will hopefully be presented before Christmas.

IHMN - Mountain Shootout

Following the successful retrieval of the Cyberman Tech data module in Obsession, The Doctor and colleagues re-located up to an abandoned mountain lodge to extract the data. Because of the residual Ion Flux the process generated the procedure could not take place inside the TARDIS. With the equipment almost set up they headed back to the TARDIS to retrieve the final cables, just as the Dooley gang show up to take back what they started out to have...

IHMN - Grenadier Guards

Finally finished the last section of my Queen Victoria Company: the Grenadier Guards. They traditionally guard Buckingham Palace, so seemed the ideal choice as the troop segment of the company. The figures are all from Ironclad Miniatures, 4 standard troops and the 2 command.

I was really struggling with these to be honest. I launched into them as a whole but found them fiddly and didn't feel like picking them back up for ages. After Zomtober I re-addressed the group and only tackled them in pairs, which really helped and I started enjoying them - which is part of the point after all. In the end they are quite striking.

I'll post up a group photo of the complete Company once I have put together the stats.

Ral Partha Gargantua Orc Comparison Picture

No real post today, more of a resource replication.

I like Ral Partha figures and have been eyeing up their Gargantua Orc range for a possible next fantasy Warband. Nice big powerful looking Orcs! One of the things holding me back from the order (aside from cashflow!) was the concern of how "gargantua" they were. RPE however granted my FB request for a quick comparison photo and details. Thought I'd replicate them here for any future folk looking for the same details. I know how useful some other bloggers "archive " material is when I'm searching around for figure details.

"The gargantua orcs measure 30mm to the eye, 33-34mm to the top of their heads, here is a quick phone camera pic of one next to a kev adams orc and a crucible 28mm cultist."
