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!
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.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"
Feb 26, 2019 20:44:53 GMT -9
Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
Feb 26, 2019 12:24:18 GMT -9
Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
