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, […]

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

It’s Monday, time for more miniatures. Here’s another war band for the forces of darkness, led this time by a Tiefling Sorcerer. He’s backed up by a demonic barbarian, two hell knights, and a vampire assassin. This is a nasty crew in close quarters or on a crowded table where cover negates long ranged attacks. […]

Cinder King: The Giant’s House

The Cinder King is coming. Hordes of shambling undead, slavering ghouls, gibbering cultists, and reanimated skeletons mass on the west bank of the Tigeria, waiting for the enslaved survivors of Karlsberg to finish the barges needed for the crossing. Grotesque overseers spend these pitiful lives in lavish cruelty, whipping them to a feverish pace. The […]

Cinder King: Fire on Wael’s Bluff

General Montsigaard is tight-lipped with pain, seated in a folding chair in the command tent. A crisp new uniform accents his drawn face and three days of patchy gray stubble. Blood still seeps through his bandages. The General’s tent buzzes with a constant flow of dispatch runners who stumble in and out, vacant-eyed with exhaustion. […]

Chechen Wars 28mm Kickstarter

Kickstarter… Yeah I know. Great idea – not always the best experience. Incessant delays, poor communications, long-winded excuses, sub- par products, partial fulfillment… I’m 50/50 Good to Bad projects over the past five years. And lately, I’ve given up altogether. It’s just not worth the hassle. Sure, nice figs/game/terrain but I’ll wait until they’re available […]

Another Zona Perestrelki crew

The 4th of July weekend is upon us so this is a short post. Another squad for ZP. I painted up five more Eureka Soviets with Pig Iron heads. A simple modification that’s easy and works well to provide loads of appropriate looking Zone denizens is no time. This squad can be unaffiliated STALKERS, a […]
