The Secret War

Stiff upper lip and all that.....

A few months ago I bought the Modiphius games Achtung Cthulhu core books and gave them a jolly good reading on the train. I'd played CoC in other time settings but the idea of the Great Old One and his nefarious buddies getting their tentacles wiggling during WW2 was just to tempting an idea.

So I set about getting as many of the rules and history of the era crammed into my tiny brain, which is already close to being full, and I set about writing a adventure for my gaming buddies.

Most of the work is complete but there are a few ideas that need ironing out and as always we need to book a date in our extremely busy schedules to actually play. 

Listed below are some pictures of the models that I have painted so far, I have posted other pictures of Cthulhu cultists and the like on previous pages on this blog so if you've missed them then please have a scroll down and search for the agents of our giant squid headed overlords.........

Babes with guns and Red Sparrow the inside man.

Achtung Cthulhu...

It's happening at a gaming table somewhere near you....

In preparation for a Achtung Cthulhu game and a Rifts campaign that I am going to start in the new year, hopefully, I have been painting some new models for both games.

These were bought from eBay many, many, many months ago and I have finally found the some "spare" time to get them painted.

Base painted these a couple of days ago, then they sat in my office gathering dust.
And probably freezing in those outfits.

I'll be using these beauties for Rifts.

Really happy with the way this model turned out.

My name is Red Sparrow.
Have you seen a large yellow oil barrel around here?

Big thanks to Mr.R

I've taken a back seat on the DM'ing job for a few months and in my place both Mr. R and Mr. G have taken up the mantle of overlord of the gaming table.

We've been playing low level characters in both campaigns, they are being run alternatively, and it's been a blast. I've posted some pictures from our last session, which was about two weeks ago and fingers crossed the next part of Mr. R's campaign will be organised for some time in November.....come on boys, lets make this happen.

Some very excellent dungeon tiles that were crafted by Mr.R from foam board.
Looks like the party are about to get ambushed by some Derro warriors, who all have very fetching 80's style moustaches.

That's a fine pair of red shorts you have there Mr.R.

Amber, Randal, Gilson, Argentum and Jade are about to take on the room of evil tables, it's like a trip to Ikea on a Saturday afternoon.
Oh, the horror....

The Tomb of Horrors......


I've asked our fluffy DM if he'd be willing to run the Tomb of Horrors for us using the D&D 5e rules and he's agreed.

Now despite the fact that I've been playing D&D for 25 years I've never played this classic module, now I can hear you all say, "but everyone who's anyone, who's played D&D knows all about this fiendish dungeon."

And to this I say, "Yes I've heard of the legend but this great adventure is still an mystery to me."

So in prep for this soon to be fun day of gaming, our DM has allowed myself and my group of brave chums to roll up some 18th level characters to take on the Tomb. I've decided to play a human wizard and below are some pictures of a model that I have been building, customizing and painting.

This model was originally a elven warrior, I clipped both sword hands off, bent the arms into a forward position. Once that was done I then drilled both arms, inserted wires and then fixed a right hand holding a staff and a left hand holding a deck of cards.

No doubt after all of this hard work he'll probably die in the first room and I'll spend the rest of the day crying into my dice bag.

Completed model, with detailing on the deck of cards that he's holding in his left hand.

The little folk

It's been a few weeks since I lasted posted any new pictures, but that doesn't mean that I haven't been hunched over my office table, busily building and painting new models.

A small amount of free time means more models painted

Models painted this week.

Afternoon all, it's been a couple of weeks since I last updated my blog. What with work, PAX East 2016 videos to watch, Acquisitions Inc series to catch up on and too many Amazon Prime series to watch....well what can I say I've been rather busy.

But I have managed to find some time this week and I have painted the following models.

This is an assortment of stuff that's been sat on my desk waiting to be painted and I just thought, why not so some painting.

March of the Puppet Master

Please enjoy some pictures of models I painted for a D&D dungeon that I ran at over last weekend, these pictures were taken at my home before we played so I expect that there will be some action shots to follow later.

Some of you will recognize some of the miniatures from a previous blog post and from the Malifaux skirmish game. As well as the Malifaux models I have also added some Stich Golems which come from a range of models made by Reaper Miniatures.

I painted these beauties as a "favour" to a friend who I play D&D with, I'll be expecting payment in full Marty.!

You know the price, beer and snacks.

Don't let me down.
