Horrorclix Prepaints for CotN Fear and Faith

I've finally finished all of the models and terrain for my Fear and Faith and Flying Lead games I'm running at Con of the North.

I will admit, I cheated a bit.  A majority of the figures in the zombie game are Horroclix prepaints.  They are decent looking figures, and there is a great variety.

SWAT zombie, hospital patient zombie, construction zombie, and a police zombie.

Corporate response: Responder, flamethrower and cleaner.

The figures have not been retouched at all.  They were simply removed from their bases, attached to new 25mm bases (either Likto wooden bases or plastic slotted bases) and then based in black ballast.  I choose black ballast for basing as most of my zombie games take place in urban environments and the ballast represents asphalt fairly well. 

Don't worry, the next pictures will be of "real" minis...

Fear and Faith HEPA Members

Here are some pictures of some of the figs making up my HEPA team for the Fear and Faith zombie game I'm running at Con of the North.

I've added some firepower in the form of two machine pistols from the Warzone line of miniatures.

The pictures of the other HEPA members didn't turn out.  I'll be adding those later.

1/72 WWII Germans

Here are some shots of the Germans that will be used in my Ganesha Games Flying Lead game at Con of the North in February.  I've done a lot more than this, but I will just be using a basic squad for the con game.

These are from an Esci set I picked up for a few dollars at a local hobby shop.  They are now available from Italeri as German Infantry.

MG 34 and assistant.  The assistant was a prone rifleman.  I removed the rifle, and created an ammo can and ammo belt from some green stuff and plasticard.

Commanders.  The "Sergeant" was holding a mine, but I clipped it off.

Standard riflemen.

These models are painted up in early war colors.  The paintjob is pretty basic.  No insignia were painted on this first go through.  Though one day if I feel ambitious enough I will do the helmets and jackets.

Vampires and Vampire Hunters

Here are some pictures of the vampires and vampire hunters I've painted for my Fear and Faith game for Con of the North this February. 

All models are by Blue Moon Manufacturing.  The sculpts are OK.  There are some bad mold lines, and the detail isn't very crisp.  Some of the faces are strange, with little definition and bulging eyes.  That being said I don't know of many manufacturers that make models for this, and they come in nice box sets that give you both sides of a skirmish.  You also get 12 figures for $30 USD or 20 for $40 USD, which to me isn't bad at all.  The figures also come with their own decorative, 25mm bases, which is a nice touch.

Models are from the "You're Such a Pain in the Neck" and "Romanian Civilians" box sets.

I added a pistol from a Games Workshop dwarf sprue to the civilian.

A wicked dagger from a Games Workshop Kroot sprue was added to the woman in the blue dress.
The drunkard was also given a GW dwarf pistol.

The civilian on the left originally held a broom.  It was replaced by an oversized axe from a GW skeleton.

I didn't get horribly creative here.  I'm not too familiar with the dress of the period, so I basically followed the example on the box cover for painting.
