Big Trouble Jack Burton, Ash, Jason Vorhees, and Daryl Dixon.

Hello Discerning Blog Viewer,

First today are some Wargames Factory Survivors.  The multipart plastics allow you numerous options for personalizing your survivors.  Here's my attempt at recreating Jack Burton from Big Trouble in Little China, Jason Vorhees, Ash Williams from the original Evil Dead movies, and a poor attempt at Daryl Dixon from The Walking Dead.  They're part of my zombie fighting Dream Team!

Jack and Ash have stupid poses; I was trying to make them stand similar to their movie poster poses, but it just looks awkward.   I've made the Shaun of the Dead guys and new Evil Dead Mia character, just no paint yet.

Jason chopping up zombies and humans.  His mask obscures his vision making everyone look like a zombie.

Topless zombies don't stand a chance against Jason Vorhees.
Jason survival rule number 1:  Never take off your shirt

Here are a couple Reaper minis:  Max Decker Private Eye and Oddjob, a James Bond villian, who throws his hat around.     Oddjob's paintjob was destroyed by a varnish clouding disaster.  He really looks terrible, kind of like lead rot.
Watch out Max!  He's got a hat!!!

Here's a couple WW1 Germans;  the first two are Great War Games (I think) and the chap laying down with a cloudy varnish coat is Old Glory.  I'm pretending I meant to make him dusty looking.

The guy in the middle has some sort of knit cap under his helmet.

A beat up oven and some garden gnomes.  The gnomes will be characters in the local Travelocity campaign games.
The oven is quite small, more of a RV oven.  The gnomes are not huge.

The delightful garden gnomes are Zombie Plague miniatures.  I think the evil genius Roebeast sculpts some of the best zombie miniatures available.  You can buy your own by going to his terrific blog "Roebeast's Magical House of Sunshine"

Must find and kill that damned Gieco Pig!

Lastly, I've finished another 24" x 24" piece of urban rubble.  I'm trying to create a 10' x 4' table by October, for the Battle in the Bosque convention.   More details will be added if I get the remaining half of the table done this far.

Old Warzone minis clearing the rubble of a space midget infestation.  I don't know why but I think I must have painted 40 or so of those 40K space hobbits.

Till next time, when I should have some Grenadier halberdiers done.

  1. Those conversions look great. And while I will agree about the poses, the spirit of the character is there and I was able to recognize them right away without reading the description. (ok the title gave away a little, but not enough)

  2. Nice additions love the characters you've made out of the wgf survivors they are ace.

  3. I just love the survivors, really tempted to get some of those for myself.

  4. Awesome stuff, James! Always a pleasure to see your works.

  5. You have been a busy chap, but I take my hat off to your ruins, they look excellent. Good luck filling such a large table.

  6. Just checked out your blog James. Great Stuff, very inspiring. I like your take on Jack from Big Trouble in Little China, " I'm a reasonable guy. But, I've just experienced some very unreasonable things". We can all relate to that!

  7. The plastic survivors set looks great Jason makes a great survivor!

  8. Love the wargames factory models :)

  9. cool. I like Jason's mask, for Daryl, just lengthen his hair, and his hair and clothing should be darker.
