Nurses

These are Nurses for Malifaux. They are part of the resurrectionist faction but can work for Dr McMourning and Jack Daw. They give out poison at close range which is deadly for enemy models but can be good for some friendly ones who benefit from them. Can also heal, give melee buffs, movement buffs, and armor. The models pictured here are the two first edition metal models and the two second edition ones from the Body of Evidence crew box but can be purchased separately. The two in the middle are the plastic ones.
Primed white. Skin painted Khardic Flesh, drybrushed Midlund Flesh, and lightly drybrushed mix Ryn Flesh/Sulfur Yellow. Reason for the Sulfur Yellow is that in the background fluff, their boss, Dr McMourning, has gifted women with the skins of beautiful dead women in exchange for assisting him in the morgue and with his extra curricular experiments. The skin has to be replaced once in a while so wanted a little bit of "getting old skin" look. Gross I know but it fits the Malifaux theme.
Nurse outfits painted Menoth Whight Highlight and drybrushed Morrow White. Trim painted Thamar Black. Red painted Skorne Red and drybrushed Khador Red Base. Metal done with Cold Steel. Syringes painted Necrotite Green. Shoes painted Coal Black and drybrushed Underbelly Blue. The jars one nurse has are painted either Meridius Blue or Frostbite.
Blonde hair painted Heartfire, drybrushed Sulfur Yellow, and lightly drybrushed Cygnar Yellow. Black hair painted Thamar Black, drybrushed Coal Black, and lightly drybrushed mix Coal Black/Menoth White Highlight. Brown Hair painted Battlefield Brown, drybrushed Iridian Flesh, lightly drybrushed Beast Hide.
Bases are from the first edition Malifaux line and are metal bases. I'm sure they will come back in some form in their new plastic bases that they are developing. Tile painted Trollblood Base, drybrushed Meridius Blue, lightly drybrushed Arcane Blue, and an even lighter drybrush mix Arcane Blue/Menoth White Highlight. Concrete painted Cryx Bane Highlight, drybrushed Trollblood Highlight. Metal painted Cold Steel and highlighted Platinum. Wood painted Battlefield Brown, drybrushed Bloodstone, and lightly drybrushed Rucksack Tan. Rats painted Thamar Black, drybrushed Cryx Bane Highlight, and lightly drybrushed Trollblood Highlight. Tails painted Carnal Pink. Eyes painted Khador Red Highlight.
On the base I made organs and blood pools with Kneadite. Reason is to better adhere the model on the base. Organs textured with dental tools, painted Sanguine Highlight, and drybrushed with Carnal Pink. Blood pools brushed with Skorne Red, and dappled with Khador Red Highlight. Entire model washed with Agrax Earthshade then dabs of GW Blood for the blood god applied. Outer rim painted with Iosian Green.

The Drowned are solid Malifaux Resurrectionist melee minions that can cause extra damage shenanigans to models in hazardous terrain. Works well with Jaakuma Ubume and other models that create hazardous terrain around them. These are the first edition metal models.
 I bought these already assembled and painted, as pictured below. I wanted to add some drybrushing and change the skin to the undead skin tones I've used for my other undead models.
 I repainted the skin Khardic Flesh, drybrushed mix Midlund Flesh/Wurm Green, and added Ryn Flesh to the previous mix and lightly drybrushed with that.

Gaslands Amateur League Vehicle Additions

I thought a good way of getting used to the Gaslands rules, for myself and others, would be to make a couple of teams of cars. A Gaslands amateur league if you will. I discovered that most toy car makers rarely venture from the base colors of red, green, blue, and yellow. I picked a good mix of vehicles to rough up that I was not going to use for the sponsored teams. 
These cars are in addition to the buggys and bike I did earlier. Unlike the buggies, I will not add a physical weapon. That way people can choose the things they would like to have on the cars to try out during fun games. Not to worry, my sponsored teams will have weapons and such and be more kitted out than these.

I'll go through a step by step of what I did. Below is the blue team additions I picked. I glued the wheels to prohibit them moving with Gorilla gel glue.
 I then used my Dremel-like tool kit to rough them up. It can make great bullet holes, rocket hits, sideswipes, and collision marks. I did make sure of wearing a mask and safety glasses as well as doing it in my garage. Safety comes first in the world of Gaslands.
 The second set of three blue cars. The one on the far left turned out to be all plastic frame, so its more roughed up than battle damaged now.
After this step I watered down some old wood stain I had, 50/50 mix, and painted it all over the cars. They dried on the back deck over several days because it smells as the stain is evaporating. After they dried I drybrushed some dollar store zap straps steel, cut them up as required, and glued them onto the cars with Gorilla gel glue. Below is the results with the manufacturer and car name from left to right.

Team Yellow

 Hotwheels (HW) Dodge Charger R/T and Matchbox (MB) '03 Mini Cooper S
 HW 1999 '68 Elcamino and HW 2000 Showstopper
 Majorette (MJ) US Van and China 6038 Cherrypicker

Team Green

 MB '98 Porche Boxter and China TC-887
 HW Honda Civic Si and HW 2001 Ballistik
 HW 2002 Power Panel and China 6058P High Speed

 Team Blue

 MB 1999 BMW 3 Series Coupe and Johnny Lightning '04 Pontiac
 HW 2004 Power Pistons and HW 1999 McDonalds toy
 MB 2005 International CXT and China pickup

 Team Red

Train Show Terrain and Cars

Last week was a local Train Show. Lots of various scales of trains, track, books, video and terrain was available at collectors prices as well as "I need this out of my house now" prices. I scored a bunch for the latter.

Z scale is 1/220 or 7mm, N scale is 1/160 or 10mm, HO scale is 1/87 or 18.5mm, OO scale is 1/76 or 21.2mm, O scale is 1/43.5 or 37mm, I scale is 1/32 or 50.3mm. I was going for mainly HO scale for Gaslands terrain but found some good and cheap O scale items for other games.

What is Gaslands without a gas station!
 Some good blocking terrain.
 Definitely going to switch out the billboards.
 Gaslands fruit stand?
Some terrain for 1:28 or 32 scale figs. Three wood animal train cars ($1 each), foam cobble stencil sidewalks, tombstones, and a coal train car.

Wrecked Car Barriers

The barricades I made work great but I needed more if I want to have larger games or want some more varied terrain. Hence making the below wrecked car barriers.

I started with a bunch of cheap or broken cars form the two bulk buys I made from people, through an online classified site, and a friend who had extras from making his own groups of cars with his son.

I then placed then on a board...
...and put another board on top. I then stood on it and didn't make any noticeable damage. Time to go to Plan B.
Putting one car at a time between the two boards and hitting the top board with a rubber mallet did the trick. Only the scrap wood gets hurt. Lots of debris coming out the sides so recommend doing it outside in an area that you can sweep up the little plastic bits going everywhere. Very therapeutic.
The wood took a beating too! 
After that I used Gorilla glue to stack the cars up, used a dremel tool to rough them up, and used a medium dark wood stain to make them look old and more wrecked. I also used small bases made from thick plasticard that I'm going to glue them on for stability when transporting them.



Not a bad little project. I will be trying to get more cheap cars to make curved and long straightaways for more interesting track making.
