And now today's last entry from Clint. At least that's what he tells me...
One of the things I have promised myself this year is that I will play more zombie games! Well just got back from the wargames club and I have offered to put on a Samuari game next time and a SCW game the time after, so you can clearly see I am keeping my (self made) promise!
Cutting a long story short I do plan a zombie/kung fu game. I know the idea sounds very naff but some games are just for fun! So in support of that idea here are 3 modern martial artists! The figures are Dixon Miniature from the "Yak 03" pack and are totally usable for zombie games set in the modern world. I can picture certain members of the blogosphere frowning at the idea of Kung- Fu Zombies. I can also picture others in the blogosphere grinning like a gin addled gibbon. I am one of the gin addled gibbons who like the idea of modern comic effect horror. I am even grinning as I type this. While the figures are not the very best sculpts they have a cartooniness to them which in my eyes just adds for this game idea. Someone is bound to ask about what rules I will use. And while I could use "a Fist full of Kung fu!" by Osprey I think "7ombie TV" will give a better result. So if you are ready to shout out "Thwack!" "Crunch!" or even "Kaaaaaapow-ie!" please feel free to show me some support for some fun games now and again! And if you can keep a straight face in a zombie kung fu game well just maybe you are taking the hobby far too seriously!
And in addition another VBCW flag carrier for the BUF. The same Footsore miniatures as last time but as I dropped the figure (Scratching it) and put the flag on upside down. ("Stop laughing, we all make mistakes" said the Dalek climbing off of the dustbin). If the flag had been geometric I would not worry but the pig had his feet up in the air and that was not the desired effect. Don't get me wrong I like bacon a lot, but it did look very wrong! So I had to order a few extra flags and wait a couple more days and that is why this is not with the others. Sorry about that it happens!
So all in all 4 extra 28mm figures. Thanks for looking and no more posts until the Epic fail bonus round.
Not sure I believe him about "no more posts" - I'm sure he's monkeying away painting several more entries which he'll submit the drafts for after I've gone to bed.
We do all make mistakes; just look at Miles, Grand Master of the Challenge Spreadsheet, who managed to submit his posts on the wrong day!
I do like those Yakuza guys and that kung fu/zombie mashup game sounds like a hit.
Four 28mm foot figures does give you another 20 points.
