Dad's Army

Warlord Games figures this time.

Painted up the boys from Walmington on Sea recently to add to the already painted Home Guard figures.

The crew, at this stage. I still have the figures of them out of uniform to paint.

Captain George Mainwaring  and William Hodges the ARP Warden.

Private Godfrey with his First Aid bag. Private Pike  and Sergeant Wilson.

Lance Corporal Jones ready with the cold steel.

Privates Walker and Frazer

Mainwaring and the Vicar discussing the use of the church hall.
Just need some German Para's to drop from the sky or a Kriegsmarine Squad to invade from the sea and we will see just how good they really are!

Zombies, Part 2

Our survivors along with their new found friends came across an abandoned farm house a mile or two up the road from the camp site in part one. The farm house provided somewhere to stay for a while. However their supplies are running low and it is now time to venture out again.

Another mile or so down the road they come to a small town and more zombies.

The town of Colesburg.
 Heading into town the survivors  begin to search for the necessities of life, food, water and ammo.
 It does not take long for the zombie hoard to appear.
 We searched the wrecked cars and abandoned houses for anything useful.
 Close to the outskirts of the town we noticed a lot of action around a bus, not moving and in the middle of the road.
 Clearly there were more survivors in the bus.  But could we help, should we help.
 We had split up our group to cover more ground quickly and planned on meeting up again before leaving the area.
 The people in the bus could see us and they decided to fight their way out and try and reach us. It seemed that at that point in time dozens more zombies appeared and they all headed towards the bus.
 In the end we felt we had to at least try and help them, so down the road we went.
 After all the hard work of zombie bashing it was time to get out of town.

 Most of us got away from the bus area only to run into even more zombies.
 By now we had learnt that one of the new survivors was a pilot. Apparently there is an airport not too far from here.
 Fighting our way past these last zombies we headed for the airport...................

A drone operated by a newspaper reporter was seen buzzing about taking photos for a news report.

Well it is not all over yet.  We plan to play out the next part in a couple of weeks.

Thanks again to Bradley for all his hard work in running this game. Thanks also to Clinton for supplying some of the photos and Nathan at Natholeon's Empires for painting most if not all of the figures.

Zombie Campaign , Day One

A few weeks back we started a mini campaign involving a land that was being over- run by Zombies and a bunch of brave survivors trying to live long enough to escape.

Part one is set in a forest. A road runs up the middle and then splits into two. The survivors need to get off the table via one of the two roads. They also need to find more ammo, food and water along the way.

 All the roads were littered with wrecked cars.
 Searching these cars gave us some more food and water.
 The further into the forest we got the more Zombies appeared.
 Every now and then we would find a Zombie lurking in one of the cars.
 One car contained 3 or 4 Zombies. They just kept coming out, more and more and more!
 We made the decision to stick together and we took the right road.

 We came across a camp site with a number of women staying there.
After talking to the women they decided to join with us. We had found enough supplies for all so now it was just a matter of getting off the table.

Towards the end of the day a couple of humans were taken out by the Zombies, the rest of us got away..........

More to come.
