In the Zone

*the following is an edited version of my recent interview in Miniature Wargames magazine. It offers an overview on ZONA ALFA development and game play. Can you introduce Zone Alfa? Zona Alfa: Salvage and Survival in the Exclusion Zone leans heavily into the fictional STALKER/METRO 2033 settings. If you’re not familiar, think Post-Apocalypse Soviet-style, in […]

New Recruits and Comparison Shots

With ZONA ALFA slated for release next month, I’ve been painting and modifying miniatures to equip my Zone crews. I need plenty of warm bodies (and ammo ) if I’m going to clear those Hot Spots and turn a profit. Here are several recent recruits: Nothing fancy or complicated, they’re a mix of Assault Group, […]

Two new STALKERS

A couple new crew members for Zone runs, one a head swap on a Mongrel Miniatures Russian, the other on a fig from The Assault Group. Here are several shots from today’s game. An experienced STALKER crew happened to be in the neighborhood when a recon UAV went down in the town of Yoshkav-Ola. A […]

ZONA ALFA crews

A History It’s no secret I’ve been fascinated with the STALKER game setting since ‘Shadow of Chernobyl’ released back in 2007. 30 sq km around the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor site reproduced for a single-player, first person shooter/survival/horror sandbox game, S:SoC was quirky and buggy as hell but it was also moody, atmospheric, smoldering, dangerous, and […]

Not Miniature Monday

Spent the last three days slammed with work and a fever, so the miniatures-related post is delayed for a few days while I get back on my feet. Until then, here’s a couple shots of some recent brushwork, plus a couple maps and some banners I ran across while scouring the interwebs. (all excellent and […]

Miniature Monday

Another Monday, another war band, Good Guys this time from Reaper’s Dungeon Dwellers line, and Metal King Studio. We’ve got a typical Knight in Armor, an Alchemist, a Fire Wizard, another armored Warrior with an extra pokey spear, and a Ranger/Archer in a heroic pose. A solid, all human Dungeon Crawling party. I really like […]

Cinder King: Skraeling’s Fork

The ride back from the mines was subdued. Our heroes had succeeded at securing a supply of Black Powder but at a hefty price. The bodies of your fallen soldiers were carefully loaded into one of the carts for proper burial back at the camp, mostly out of respect and tradition, partly because you did […]

Miniature Monday

Another Monday and the tide of evil continues to roll in. Today’s war band consists of a creepy Necromancer who apparently still gets his hands dirty digging up his own material. (It’s hard to find good help these days. Apprentices sign on, think they can skip Cadaver Assembly and go straight to Reanimation. *tsk, tsk, […]
