I am planning to run a Deadlands game using the Reloaded rules and my best guess at what they will be in relation to the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition rules. In preparation for this, I got a number of reaper miniatures for antagonists. This is the first batch that I have painted and now I will start on the second batch. You can get the Male Ranger, Female Ranger, and the gang of Undead Outlaws from Reaper.
This is The Cackler from the Dead Men Walking set. When I painted Stone, I was not as happy with how he turned out, so I waited for quite some time to paint The Cackler. You can find the set here. This and the other seven miniatures that I started today and will hopefully finish next weekend will be part of what I hope is a Deadlands campaign that I started planing out.
This has been an odd year for me. It started off with being laid off. Then spending the next several months looking for new work. Which I did find, and then most of the rest of the year was learning as much as I could about the new job and working. All of which cut deeply into my writing and painting time. I hope that the new year goes much more smoothly and I can get back into a regular schedule of writing and painting.
I have been sitting on these two miniatures for a while. I painted them first as a off pink color since that was the fiction says they are supposed to be. Unfortunately that did not come out well, and I quickly stripped the paint off of them, and re-did them as a green with a moldy skin. I was unsure about how I felt about them, but they did eventually grew on me, and now here they are. You can find them for sell here.
My wife and I started watching Diablero today, and while she is writing up what the show is about, I am writing up how I would setup a game using this setting. You can find more about the show here, and you can watch it on Netflix.
I got this book as part of the Savage Worlds Adventure Edition kickstarter. It was an interesting read especially since this is one of the wars that I know the least about. It was not very well covered when I went to school, maybe that has changed in the twenty years or so since I was last in a history class. I found what I read in this book interesting, and that combined with what I learned in the PBS Vietnam War series that I have not had a chance to finish yet, made this something that I would like to learn more about.
