Instead of Bugmans Brewery you can have Bugmans Barista!

I wish I had taken better notes before, but I think I was going to rework Bugman and his tendency to show up on random battlefields with Juan Valdelz and his mysterious ability to show up in the coffee isle.

I love that idea!

Now that Haragr is in Show Off, things are moving a little quicker...

The Sugar Fiend Slayer is done except for his base. I still haven't found his spoon yet.

Washes are done, just need to do some touchup work on the crest, and some more work on the horns. Not pictured are the arms which are still on the sprues, but basecoated for the most part.

      Normally this time of year, I'd be returning to the eternal project that is the Coffee Dwarves, but this be not a usual year. Hence, the time has come for my Witch Hunters to gain their own thread. While I love me some undead, I also have a soft spot for those who dedicate themselves to fighting such unholy menaces, likely due to movies like the Monster Squad being formulative youthful influences. 

      The warband/army thus far. Or at least the part dating up to about 1920 or so.



      BEHOLD! THE FOUL FIENDS HATH HIDDEN YE PRIVY TISSUE IN YON TOMB IN GREAT AMOUNT!
      The other, more modern segment is what I like to call the Angry Catholic faction.

      A humble beginning thus far, but it gives me an excuse to eventually collect an army of battle nuns that aren't affiliated with 40k. 



      War Monks on Motorcycles. It doesn't get much more badelf than that. One of the upcoming units is a nun fast attack vehicle, since apparently in the world of the unhinged, common church tactics include road warfare. 

      And the reinforcements for both factions that have been waiting on the Shelf of Incompleteness for far far too long. So now that I've got the table set up where the sun can't interrupt me, and the urge to paint has returned, no excuse not to try and get a few more of these done.  The two up front, Elyse Anya, and a 40k sanctioned psycher are almost finished, Anya just needs basing. Which is another thing that I noticed when I was setting up for the photos, my basing is all over the place with these guys, so there may be a bit of reworking going on as well.

      A terrain piece from the Warhammer Battle of Skull Pass Box set.

      The coffee mug is from a Marx toy factory dollhouse set, attached with sewing thread.

      The center shield bears a freehanded icon of the Mug Guard.

      The Saga of Frothumbar and his fall can be found in the Coffee Dwarves of Confefe Mountain WIP thread.

      It took longer than I expected to get these guys done, but I'm happy with how they came out. They're part of the Warhammer Battle for Skull Pass set that I bought in 2007.


      The base is a bit uneven as when I glued down the back of a blister pack for the stonework it split open and I covered it in with gravel. In the future I'm going to have to use something else as it really didn't register as "stone" to my eye, but the cannon covers most of it at least.

      The powder barrel is a small Reaper bones barrel I've had for awhile, the cannon balls are 25mm airsoft ammo and the coffee pot is from an old Marx toy factory dollhouse set. Vastly overscale until one thinks about the thirst of the average dwarf! I had the idea of adding some thing for each dwarf, ammo for the hauler, gun powder for the engineer, and coffee for the swabber with the mug. 

      The aforementioned gap filling. Base of craft paint Pavement with Stormy Gray and Rainy Gray drybrushed over it.

      The crew in Maxwell House colors. The swabber looks to be well on his way to caffinated bliss!

      I've been working on these since last year, a couple figures at a time. I hope to eventually put together an entire army of them but redneck sculpts aren't that easy to find. The chronoscope zombie hunters/survivors and the new hillbilly are next on the list of acquirements. 

      The car is a 1/32 scale 1970 Plymouth Road Runner from Jada Toys Fast and Furious line. Somewhat over scale, but it looks close enough and is easy to take apart.

      I resisted the urge to Mad Max it as I wanted it to be more along the lines of a car left in the barn for some years before TSHTF.

      I chose to use warmer colors to match popular 70s shades and to give it a hint of the General Lee.

      These two are the first ones I painted and the freehand flannel isn't the best but it give him the look of a regular farmer. The one on the right is a combination of Darryl from the Walking Dead and Rambo. Both are from Wargames Factory Apocalypse Survivors:The Men.

      Next are Westwind's Redneck Militia. They were fun to paint, especially the cans of Hamms.
      Berkeley was done as a homage to Ash from Army of Darkness.

      I freehanded more flannel on Billy Joe and it came out much better than my first attempt and the flag on his hat came out better than I expected.
      The flock on his overalls was an accident but I'm leaving it as it suggests the white lightning in his jug caused him to stumble a bit. I also am happy with the freehand on his rag.
      Bobby Jo is the one that I think came out the best.
      Eventually I'll get them another vehicle and some plasticville mobile homes.
