House Stark 2. # 7 bannerman #3 Trooper

I decided to go with a blue gray uniform with Gray armor and leather belts and pouches

I took the center armor medallion which had a skull on it and trimmed it to form a wolf head.  I do have a Stark banner to go on the staff, but it's gone missing for the moment.

Fur caped added to the backs with Green putty

Thanks for the imput.

A few works in progress and some finnished

A hero clixy thing re paint and re based. I thought looked kind of Steampunky and now I had another idea for one so I'll have to get another.

Crocodile games Sobetek. These were really fun to paint and I had such a good time painting these I see more coming in the future

The start  of my GOT future 1st House Stark standard barer.  Using Reaper Bones IMEF figures with Sculpted fur cloaks on the back (which I forgot to take a picture of) still working on the color scheme .

House Stark Trooper with alien eggs

Trash to treasure  workings.  I really enjoy making things from stuff that I would usually toss out.  This was a real surprise for me.   The eggs are made from a broken piece of Styrofoam, this is the inside of a broken piece.  I washed it over with some white glue for stability,  then a couple of coats of paint. I am sure to come up with some other use too.
Motts apple sauce container into a barbarians hut

I covered the logo with some greenstuff for a hide covered door and thatch roof

Rear logo was made into a widow  cover

Greenstuff  horns were added for a bit of barbarian class. A sack of whatever sits by the door.  Not bad for pretty much free

Dungeon dwellers

A couple of re painted dungeon dwellers from D&D clix figures. Inexpensive and relatively good figures for the price.

Fantasy Egyptians

From the indigogo campaign 

These are really nice figures, well sculpted  and fun to paint. Concubine,Assassin, and Serving girl

Scribe, Attendant,Musician.  I really like the Attendant figure

Body Guards

The ax man reminds me of James Earl Jones, Tulsa Doom.  Id like to do a head swap with this someday.

Eunuch Captain and guards

A really cool collection that you would not be amiss to buy.

11. I like Musical theater.

Question that were posed to me.

1.  Why did you decide that wargaming was for you?
 I really did not get into War gaming as gaming.  I hardly every actually play a game but I always loved toy soldiers and I love to paint figures. So that’s the part of it that I am into.

2.  If you had to team up with a super hero, who would it be and what powers would you have to complement their abilities? 
Superman I can hide behind him when the shooting starts.  And I kind of like telekinetic s

3.  What do you think is the cutest film creature (from a sci-fi/fantasy setting) and why?
The only thing I can think of right at this second are Tribbles There are cute fuzzy and I am sure there is away to spay or neuter them J

4.  If you were sentenced to death by firing squad, who would you want staked out next to you and why?
 Putin and Kim Jong Uhg or whatever (they are going to start and 3rd world war ) and with Superman in front of me…Fire away

5.  Zombies? In one sentence, explain why a rotten, animated corpse seems to be the coolest thing on the wargaming scene since... ever. 
Cannibalism scares me, Walking dead people frightens me, and the  thought of having to whack someone you knew in the head to stop them from eating you is awful.  And I like the survival aspect.

6.  If you had unlimited surplus cash and had to choose a single wargaming army, what would it be and for which rules/game?
 I guess I would like some more Quar  even though I have an army already and I still have a bunch of Grymns to do but I am more of a one off figure painter rather than armies...but let go Roman

7.  If you lost everything apart from the clothes you are standing in... what would be the very first thing (after food/drink) that you would choose to obtain and why?
 A phone to call for help,  Unless you’re talking Zombie/apocalyptic type loss then It would be a gun(I am American) I need to defend myself and find shelter and more food(and a hot chick…with her own gun)

8.  What is your favorite pet? 
A dog

9.  You are standing next to the director of a film that you really didn't like and were able to replace him in the director's chair. Which film would you choose to improve?
 There are lots to improve many that could take a remaking but just off the top of my head I will say Sharknado.  The first frame of the film I would say CUT!! That’s a wrap let get out of here and save the lives of so many.

10.  What do you think is the best wargaming genre and why?
  I am into Post-apocalyptic /Sci fi and Old West at the moment

11.  Who would you choose to write your epitaph and why?
 My niece (because she loves me, would say true things and mean them)
