Small Update to let everyone know I still Breath

Just a small update so that peopel don't start thinking I joined the ranks of the (Un)Dead. Been busy with work and having to deal with a computer problem with my laptop. BTW laptop is back up and running so now I can play the Fallout New Vegas: Lonesome Road DLC.

I did get some minis this month, a couple Reaper Chronoscope figures (Edna, the Crazy Cat Lady (with 6 cats that are separate), Sister maria, Nun, and Rio Wilson, Cowboy), along with the GW Catachan Jungle Fighters Squad (10 figures). Last month I did purchase the Victory Force 50 for $50 Zombie deal, they arrived towards the end of August and I did finish them all before August ended. Granted none of my figures will win any awards for their paint jobs, as I have said before I go for the Table top (2-3ft) paint job, as long as they look good on the table from a distance of at least a couple feet, they I am happy with them. Back on the topic of the Catachan Jungle Fighters, I have taken one of the extra guns and added a longer barrel (wooden toothpick) , a "bolt" (using part of the pistol grip from one of the rifles that was cut off when the rifle was used to arm one of the Catachans), and a scope (toothpick), turning it into a bolt action sniper rifle.

I am semi-moving away from the Sabol Design Army Transport Case for figure storage and transport. Instead what I am doing for figure storage is some Flambeau Pistol Cases (Model # 1011), These cases fit inside the Army Transport case I have (with the foam trays removed). I can fit 4 stacked on top of each other horizontally, and one next to them vertically, along with 2 of the Mantic "DVD" cases that my Hasslefree Adventurers (Mantic licensed) came in.

On the scenery front I haven't been doing that much. I did find a Hot Wheels Ducati 1098 at one of the local stores, bought it and have it mounted on a GW "Pill" Motorcycle base.

I finally found a copy of Steve Jackson games, Zombie Dice. I have had the iPhone/iPod touch version for a while now and couldn't find the physical version locally so put it on the back burner.

On the gaming front not much happened this month, other then some Fallout New Vegas (before laptop problems, and now that they are resolved after). I did get a couple games of Zombie Fluxx and Zombie Dice (physical not the iPhone version) in.

I am also going to be purchasing the WWG Roll Arena this Friday (tomorrow), which I am planning on building, and modifying the card drawer so that it will fir the ATZ Risk and Rewards Deck in one of the spots for cards, and the other two will be one open area for additional dice, tokens, rulers, etc... As for the Roll Arena's top surface I am thinking of seeing if I can bash a disk with a nice picture of a Survivor fighting a Zombie, either with a firearm or in melee (maybe both, a pistol firing in one hand and a machete/Baseball bat/Lead Pipe/Katana/etc... in the other hand).

One another awesome note, I finally got me a console system for gaming. I ended up buying a Nintendo Wii. I bought it both for myself and also for my mom since she wants to do Wii Bowling and Wii Fit. I will most likely be getting the RE games for it, and also see if I can find my copies of RE0, RE1 (remake), and RE4 that I bought when I had a Nintendo Gamecube. right now only games I have for the Wii are Mystery Case Files: The Marlgrave Incident, and Wii Sports. I am a fan of the Hidden Object games, having a Big Fish Games Club Membership, which I use the free game credit i get each month to get a new hidden object game, and luckily my mom also loves playing them so they all get installed on my parents main computer in the front room for anyone in the house to play.

I am hoping that October will be a more eventful month on the scenery front and even the gaming front


  1. Glad to hear you're doing alright. You've got a good set of miniatures coming, the Repear ones in particular, I look forward too.

    I ordered the VF Zombies in August as well, but I have only a put a slight dent in painting them so far.

    I'm playing FallOut New Vegas on Xbox 360 right now, and loving it. The Courier is not a very nice guy the way I play, heh heh.


  2. Adam- I have a couple different games of FONV going, one I am playing the Legion side, another straight NCR, another supporting Mr. House, and then fourth is my "Evil" character, where if it moves it dies. Then I have my "test" character that I use to check out the DLCs with an initial play through of that DLC, I am planning on getting the Gun Runners DLC, probably will skip the Courier's Stash DLC since I already have all for of the pre-order packs (found them all online, I already had the Mercenary pack from the copy of FONV that I purchased at Walmart, yes I admit I downloaded them, but this was last November before it was known that they all would be released for those who didn't pre-order and at the time all word from Obsidian and Bethesda said they were Pre-Order only, though if it comes out there's some additional stuff in the Couriers Stash then I will buy it).

    Next week I am thinking of picking up for the Wii, Dead Rising: Chop to Drop (or what ever its called) along with the Umbrella Chronicles though I may get Mario Party 8 first, since MP is a sweet game for multiplayers.

    Right now only one Wii Remote, though my mom did order 2 more through Dell, a Blue and a White. When they come in she will be taking the Pink one that came with the Wii (the Wii was purchased as a Pre-Owned from GameStop). The Nunchuck we got is black. My dad will be taking the Blue Remote and I will get the White one, though I am planning on buying a Black one and 3 more nunchucks eventually (along with the Classic Controller for the Virtual Console games) and a couple Gamecube Controllers so I can play my GC games.

  3. From your posts on the Post Apoc Forum I knew you were still enjoying oxygen, Doug. I look forward to seeing your new figures getting painted up. I'm also keen to see your WWG dice roller when you get that built. It's not a model that's on my "must buy" list as I doubt if I'd have much use for it but even so, I still like to see what folks do with the model. Anyway, it's nice to have you back.
