CDC Posts Advice on Zombie Apocalypse

No, this isn't a wind-up, the Centre for Disease Control, really have posted advice on what to do, in the event of a zombie apocalypse!




A clever way to get some publicity for their Disaster Preparedness Programme, it nevertheless provides an interesting bit of fluff, for zombie gamers everywhere.

You can read the full CDC Advice, by going to their website address, as follows:




Just remember, always aim for the head.

Fresh Lead in the Post!

My first ever set of commissioned figures arrived back from the casters. I plan on using these generic figures for various personal projects, from modern zombie games, to Aliens, and even my Battlestar Galactica project.




First up, are some figures that I had made a while back, by Whiffwaff - apologies for the rubbish photos - they are much better in the "flesh". The brief was for generic looking figures in overalls, jumpsuits, and fatigues that could suit a variety of purposes, plus a head sprue, for use in some conversions.


The brief was for figures in standing/walking poses, with hands by their sides, to make it easier for conversion purposes, such as adding weapons, or equipment at a later date.

Update - The Battlefield Appeal for Combat Stress

A massive thank you to everyone that has supported the Battlefield Appeal, so far. Since I started the Battlefield Appeal, only two months ago, we have raised over £500 (including gift-aid) for the Combat Stress Charity.

The money raised so far, is a combination of online donations, a collection at Salute, the UK's largest Wargames show, and some auctions, held on Frothers, to sell off some of the figures that gamers had painted (and donated) for the Battlefield game.

Your support will make a real difference to those veteran's suffering from PTSD, as a result of their service career. If you haven't already made a donation, and would like to do so, you can safely and securely, but clicking the Combat Stress logo, on the top right hand corner of this page, which will take you to my Justgiving page.

Thanks again guys - the generosity of gamers never ceases to amaze.



Best Regards

New Project - Vietnam

Now that the Battlefield table has had its first outing, at Salute, its time for a new project!



I envisage this project running alongside the other existing projects, as it is mainly terrain-intensive, which will give me a break from the large number of Battlestar Galactica ships i'm starting to work upon. Despite its size, I also believe I will be relatively quick to make some progress on, and so hopefully interesting for you to keep an eye on. As usual, I've set up a dedicted page to the project, which you can access, on the righthand side of this page, by clicking on the relevant icon.
