Hey all! Just got House of the Dead Overkill-man, that thing has given me so many ideas! Am working on some of the 'soldier zombies', and when I have the set finished will add one or two black and whites of these guys for colouring. I have a ton of variants I want to do, and the more zombies the merrier in my book!
I am afraid it is a console game-this version for the wii-so no minis required!
I would highly recommend it as it is A-a great co-op first person shooter( me and the missus played waaaaay too much last night!)and B-a great visual source of inspiration for minis and horror gaming in general. It has a kinda 'grindhouse' flavour to it (a bit 'Planet Terror' if anyone has seen that) and is definitely not kid friendly-a LOT of swearing, so wouldn't recommend picking it up if there are kids in the house that could get their hands on it!
After playing it has got me thinking about carny and hospital themes for the zombies, and I would love to see some of the locations as tiles or card scenery!
LOL! Chance would be a fine thing! Did manage to have a play with the gun controllers that arrived over the weekend, but have had zero time for anything this week so far-the travel back from work has been appalling!! Still, it's my birthday this weekend so that's something to look forward to! Sneaky peaks will be posted as soon as I am happy with them!
Holy cow! March? MARCH?? I can't believe it's been so long since I posted here! Anyhow, the Survival Horror 2.0 stuff I've been working on is finally taking shape, and I finally have an idea about what I want to include in the set (figs, bases, background info etc). I see them almost as little movie scenes, with a hero, monsters and a 'Boss', and kinda self contained. I am planning on the first set being called 'Last Man Standing', and have a few parts semi-finished up and some sketchy design stuff to work on. Here are a few bits:
Jack (this sets hero)
Bioweapon (the 'Boss')
This guy is in the design stage at the moment, but I kinda liked his tentacle arm!
And finally, I have modded some of Jim's bases for use in the set (with full credit when produced of course!):
They're still a little rough but I am quite pleased with them.
Well, fingers crossed and a little more hard work and the first set should be ready soon!

Again very fantastic work.
I ws thinking that you should regroup all your work so far and layer them up on a couple of sheets just so the fans of DarkMook need only to print them - as opposed to chasing down the different figures through the Hoards.
Just a thought

Jim: I actually do too many ranges for just one person, but I'm a bit mental.
Great minds think alike-I was planning on collecting my Steampunk themed figs (with bases and maybe a re-colour or two) and also my Horror figs (the same) and asking Jim about how I make them available from here!
Hey guys! Glad you like them! There are a bunch of these ready, and there are some 'flipped' versions-these zombies were just a sampler to show the fronts and reverse! And I have a bunch of stuff in the pipeline beau-quite a few of those sketches will indeed be finally seeing the light of day!

After you get some games in, I wouldn't mind reading about your impressions of Fear and Faith. I'm currently playtesting his Tales of Blades & Heroes, but am interesting in getting F&F when I have more time.
Thanks in advance!
There are three kinds of people in this world: those who can count and those who can't.
Hey abaddon! Was at my father in law's for his birthday this weekend so had a break in the colouring, but will be back to it this week! I've had some colour issues with the bioweapon, but I think I have them figured out... Nearly there folks!
Vermin King: Not the style you are looking for, but try a search for 'paper theatre' or 'paper theater', and you will find a few pages of epinal figures. Not many, but I know there are a few

shep: Does anyone know where to find decent individual minis of late Roman Republic era civilians? From senator to slave, every mini would be great, as long as they are not legionaires or generals or other military (Praetorian Guard and Roman Vigiles excluded)

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.
