New Goodies

Well I ended up with some new goodies today, a late Christmas Present to myself. Some were even from companies I have looked at but never purchased from.

Heres the Goodies as follows (note there wont be pics since they are still in the packaging or just assembled, no priming or painting and wont have time to work on them till tomorrow evening at the earliest).

Reaper (Chronoscope line)
Bonnie, Futuristic Heroine
Circus Ringmaster (for my Cirque du Infierno)
Herq, Circus Strongman (again for the Cirque du Infierno)

Sadie B (already have Sadie A from the Hasslefree/Mantic set) who will be armed with the Katana

Crooked Dice (New company for my collection, though only one of the figures will be mine)
Tweedy Mattison
Policewoman May Killan (this is being painted for a friend that I told if she could find a Mini she wanted to use as her Mini me in ATZ I would paint it for her)

West Wind (the other new company for my collection)
Zombie Hunters 4 pack

I also picked up some more Heroclix figures
John Jameson (unarmed civilian)
Nightshade (armed African American female)
Manchester Black (unarmed civilian)
Bruno Mannheim (will be used as a Thug or Bodyguard
Intergang Underboss (again will be a Bodyguard or Thug)
Maxwell Lord (Unarmed Cop/martial Arts Instructor)
Human Target (armed Civilian)
Lex Luthor (Convict or Escaped Convict)

As it stands most if not all the Heroclix figs will only receive a rebasing and if they do get a brush taken to them, it will be just touch up work. Only one I may do more then touchup to is Maxwell Lord. I am thinking of giving him some Urban Camo pants instead of the solid grey ones he has now.

May is going to be similar to one on the Crooked Dice website with the hair being a slightly different shade and the uniform being a navy blue with white sleeves. As for all the other figures don't know what colors I will be using on them other then the Ringmaster (Red Jacket) and Herq (maroon "speedo")

In addition to the minis I picked up the Army Painter (another company I have never purchase a product from) Metal Miniature Starter Set with the Metal Flash Side Cutter/Sprue Clippers and Hobby file (it was $2US more at the Local Gaming Store then just the Clippers and it came with a sample of the Army Painter Superglue). I have been using a hobby knife to cut bits off of sprues and have been putting off the clippers for the longest time.

I also picked up some incense to go with the Dragon Skull incense burner my parents gave me for Christmas (2 of each of the following scents Lilac, Lemongrass, rosebud, sage, and eucalyptus) along with some Lilac aromatherapy oil to use as a spray mist on my cats litterbox to hopefully freshen up the room it is in.

Edit: Forgot to mention the new cardstock model files I also bought.

I took advantage of the Stoezel's Structures sale and picked up the Carnie Ville (for my Cirque du Infierno) and the Firehouse.

Dont know if I mentioned it back in October/November but picked up from WWG Cathedrea Nocits Retrofit, Podtel, Wildwoods Grove and Urban Grind . Dont know when I will be printing abd building since have no ink for my printer and before I start printing want to upgrade to printer that I can go the CIS route with.

Also while not Zombie related took advantage of the Looney Labs (makers of Zombie Fluxx and the many other Fluxx games) sale on the Back to the Future card game. Since thier licence with universal Studios expires at the end of January they have a couple deals on the BTTF game, one is the game, Pizza Hydrator Promo, Swap Plays promo (for Fluxx) and a BTTF Game poster for $11 the other is the game, 10 posters 25 Pizza Hydrators and 25 Swap Plays for $60, or one could get just the game for $20 without any of the spiffy extras.


  1. Presents to onself are always the best aren't they ?
    And you've given yourself a great mix.

  2. It is a nice little selection of figures, unfortunately the May Killian (not-Amy Pond) figure wont be going in my collection. I did pick up a 1/43 scale Die Cast Cop Car to go with May once I get her done, to give to my friend.

    Didnt pick up any Zombies even though I could have since I still have 10 of the Wargames Factory Zombie Vixens to assemble and paint.

    I am thinking I will need to get a larger carrying case (currently have the Sabol Designs Army Transport case bought back in 04 or 05, with 5 pistol cases in it to hold most the figures, plus two Mantic figure cases), as the current case system is almost full, if not completely full.

    Even though I could have started workign on the haul I got yesterday after I got home for work I havent. Only figure I have even started is the May for my friend and that was after I got the figure (and some more paints and a couple brushes) so I could start the figure with her there to get a base color scheme started.

  3. That's a mighty fine haul of goodies, Doug. Yes, presents to and from yourself are always cool!
