Empire Of The Dead Graf

In the Loft Full Of Lead, there is a pretty big Vampire Counts undead army. As I will not not be playing Warhammer Fanta$y Ca$h Cow again, they have seen plenty of use in No Quarter as the Living Dead, especially in the big games as there are just so many of them.

So when I started a few games of Empire Of The Dead, I fancied using some of my old undead models in a vampire crew. This chap was picked out to be used as the Graf, the vampire crew leader.

No idea how many years ago I originally painted this model, all I did here was rebase him on a round base to match the rest of the models.

New Stuff

After my visit to Derby / Donington Wargames Show, I have come back with more stuff than I originally intended, but that is normal really after any visit to wargames show, they have ways of sucking money out of you.

medium-steam-tankI had previously ordered a few steam tanks from Ironclad Miniatures which I collected on the day. I collected two steam tanks and an armoured car for my Imperial army. These are really nice vehicles that don’t need any cleaning up before they can be undercoated. I think a grey undercoat and some quick drybrushing will get them ready for action in no time, just need a dry day to undercoat.

tunnelingmachineFor one of the Steampunk armies, either the Meridian Imperial or the Prussian Scrunts, not decided which yet, this devious tunneling machine will allow a close combat squad to infiltrate enemy positions and cause havoc. At least that is the plan. This is a three part model and is an excellent cast.

Many years ago, back in about 1997 I played a lot of Warzone and did so for many years. It had taken over from Warhammer 40,000$ and my fellow gamers and I invested in several forces. So when Target Games went kaput, I was somewhat miffed.

But it is back.

Warzone Resurrection was Kickstarted by Prodos Games in November 2013.
The book is very well put together with plenty of background and army lists for all forces except the Imperial (which can be downloaded for free from the Prodos Games website).

I was keen to get the book and see how my existing collection could be dusted off and dropped back on to the gaming table. Having Capitol, Imperial, Brotherhood and a pile of unpainted Dark Legion, I have plenty of reasons to get back into this game.

So apart from that, I can’t believe that I only bought four miniatures, just a few steampunk characters from Lead Adventure models.

Derby World Wargames Show

Busy weekend coming up, Saturday is the Derby World Wargames show at the Castle Donington International Exhibition Centre at the Donington Park race track. So instead of watching bike racing at Donington, I get to buy even more wargames stuff. Like I need any more…
Donington Park
I have some steam tanks from Ironclad Miniatures to pick up which I cunningly ordered from the web site at 20% off!
