Ghoulish!

Ghoul
30 mm




Straight out of hell
One of a kind
Stalking his victim
Dont look behind you
Nightcrawler

- Judas Priest, "Nightcrawler"

Finally done after a hiatus of camping and busy-ness. In retrospect, I missed an opportunity to use strong lighting contrast on this figure. As a nocturnal creature, he should be moonlit, with heavy shadows and anything not directly lit should be almost black. Oh well, next time.

I has rock!

My rock, let me show you it.


Just a quick update on this gruesome guy. He needs a graveyard base with a tombstone behind him, of course.

The game's afoot...

"A Nasty Discovery Behind the Vicarage"
30 mm




As she glanced up from the ditch to scan the nearby pasture with a shrewd eye, Miss Chumleigh mentally tallied at least ten people who'd have wanted to do the old man in. Of course, in her experience, detective work was rarely blessed with a paucity of suspects.

"Natural" bases have always been difficult for me. I can never seem to muster enough disorder and variety to make them look convincing. Here I'm convinced my river is too smooth, my leaf litter just a little too carefully placed, and my grass looks like somebody's unmowed lawn (or just like static grass). But overall, I'm pleased with the result.

Plague of Brutals!

This purchase falls strictly under "What Was I Thinking?"



What the eye-bleeding heck is that, you ask? Well, this review sums up the film "Zardoz" nicely, I think. It also explains why I don't remember much of the plot except the "The gun is good, the penis is evil!" speech by the giant flying head (that vomits guns).



Of course, I had to buy THREE of these abominations... I think somebody I know is getting one for Christmas >:D
