Chico does Wargaming Scenery for £4: Part 2

This is the second part of fecking around and making a mess with paint/sand/glue/random shit and you can see Part 1 HERE (Go read it now I'll wait).

I will state this now, for anyone who likes stunning looking scenery this post isn't for you, this is dirty and cheap which is made to bash around no skill is required though so anyone can have a go if they so choose.

3 bits out of 10 have been finished, bloody hell is it hard work.. Even to the rough basic standard it takes time and so much effort (Just as well my Wife has bought me some Mantic Scenery for my Birthday).

Combat Zone: Battle Report - Monster Hunt

Last night while enjoying a bottle of Hobgoblin (It may have been closer to 4) I had the chance to play a game of Combat Zone to a good friend of mine. Now It seemed like a good idea at the time but as my Scenery is still under construction and a Battleboard yet to be made we made the best of what we had,

So we just used the scenery which comes with Combat Zone, as it turned out it was more then enough for such a small game.

Brak the Sergeant-at-Arms of the Six Six Sixers hated Zone 17, there was always something quite off putting about the old style brick ruins and that sense of someone or something watching them.

The Sides:

The Six Six Sixers:

4 Average Gangers + 1 Veteran Gang Leader: 3 Machine Pistols, Flame Weapon, Autoshotgun

The Monster:

Hero: Recoiless Rifle

Gargath smells prey, Gargath will hunt! Gargath will eat well!

So this coming Wednesday at my local games club (Watford Wargaming Federation) I'm running a Combat Zone Demo to drum up some interest in the 20 year old game (First written in '94).

As such I need to get some Gangs an Troopers painted (Troopers have only just been ordered from Forlorn Hope).

Anyway heres some more Bikers done, The Six Six Sixers:

So I fancied some cheap bash around and not care too much Sci-Fi/Post Apoc skirmish scenery. So just how cheap could I go? Well if you have read the title your'll know..Yup a whole £4 and few bits already around the house.

The key is getting a large sheet of foamboard (I got my A2 sheet for £4 from Hobbycraft, everything else I already had but I'll list what I used;

Textured Paint (Had loads from when I did my board awhile back, now lost but will be redone)
Small Nails (To pin the pieces together while the PVA drys)
PVA Glue
Cutting Board
Stanly Knife
2 Pudding Cups

Combat Zone: Scavenger & Biker Gang

Another change of pace and another project progresses alittle further. Some of these have been shown before but they have had a few bits repainted and tidy up to fit with the newer painted ones.

Gang Leader & 2 Veterens
 The Scavengers are a mix of EM4 (Ex-Grenadier) and Copplestone Castings, as they are both sculpted by the same person (Mark Copplestone) they blend perfectly.

Army Painter Review

So alittle  while ago I found myself being drawn away from VGC paints alittle to some of the Army Painter range.

Now I still love the VGC range (My VGC review can be found HERE) and won't change fully over to AP as I happen to use 5/6 paint ranges from MP to Citadel.
