My copy of Grindhouse Games Incursion arrived earlier this week from Westwind games. From a quick glance it looks quite impressive.
The package also contained a pack of Bomber Zombies for free. Nice, but bad news for my Pledge 2010 🙂
Incursion plus free Bomber Zombies
I like the board, very dark and evocative. I’m less impressed with the counters, which I feel could have had a larger image on them. Don’t get me wrong, they are more than adequate for game play, but I’m going to be buying the actual figures (more bad news for the pledge).

Another update and another batch of figures for Secrets of the Third Reich from Westwind games. This time it’s the 12 American figures from the Brainwurst set.

Brainwurst - US Armoured Infantry (2)
Brainwurst - US Armoured Infantry (3)
Brainwurst - US Armoured Infantry (4)
Brainwurst - US Armoured Infantry (5)
Brainwurst - US Armoured Infantry Medic
How did I miss that mould line?
Warfare saw a few more figures added to my stockpile, although I was restrained and kept the number to 10, and one of those was the freebie that came with the new Doomsday source book for Secrets of the Third Reich. I’ve not had a chance to more than glance at the book, but my first impression is a good one, even if it will no doubt lead to more purchases in future.
Still the Brainwurst figures add another 12 painted, and with the 10 purchased, that makes my score for the year:

Here are some pictures of my final batch of Secrets of the Third Reich Soviets (for the time being – with Warfare coming up at the weekend there’s every chance I’ll buy some more).
First up is one of the special characters: Sickle. There’s a corresponding “Hammer”, but he’s having some bits and pieces pinned on at the moment.
Next we have sniper Vasily (the Hare) Zaytsev, pictured here with another Soviet Officer.

I’ve also finished a handful of other Soviet Officers and Snipers. All in all there’s a total of 8 of them including Vasily.

That’s another 8 figures, which makes my score for the year:

Another painting update. This time it’s 24 Soviet Zombies for Westwind Games: Secrets of the Third Reich.
There’s 4 of the “Bomb” Zombies . . .

There are also 20 “Normal” Zombies. I love the model with its arm in a sling. You can almost imagine the medic at the field aid station saying “It’s only a flesh wound, Comrade. Just wear this sling and you’ll be fine”.
More Soviet Zombies (2)
That’s 24 more models towards my pledge.
Which makes my score for the year:

The next box opened in my audit didn’t reveal any surprises as it contains 44 German Zombies from the Westwind Games superb Secrets of the third Reich range.
I painted these a little earlier this year. Some are from the Brainwurst! set, whilst others are from one of the German Zombie starter packs.

I was trying for a very gritty look, which I’m more or less happy with.

Below are a couple of “bomb” zombies, my favourite is the one in the middle. There’s just something a little cruel about strapping a bomb to a zomibe.
