While rooting through various shelves I found this not far from the Thumpers. Around the same time I'd painted them I had found an old diecast car that had seen better days packed away in my boxes of model kit stuff. So I decided to "Mad Max" it a bit.100_0221.JPG.8d7fac643d433e25ed100c0a98c7aab5.JPG

Some testors CokaCola Red with layers of black and brown wash dirtied it up nicely. The rabbit originally came from a craft store many moons ago and had lost an eye along the way. So he got a felt eyepatch and a hair tie belt. The wood box and machine gun were made from balsa wood, the drum was a bit from GorkaMorka and the far tiny barrel was from a Lionel train set.

He certainly looks happy.

I dremeled off one of the side skirts to make room for a different wheel. The gas can is also from GorkaMorka and the stowage area is held in by a bit of necklace chain.

The bullbars were made with some random wire I'd found in the garage.

      Got another bunny done for the weekend.  Feeling pretty good on getting some animals done.
       

       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Wins:
      *  Using another photo for inspiration, I was interested in that this bunny photo had a slight 'blueish' tone to the color in the grey.  I was interested in trying to match it.  Used Denim Blue, Grey, and black to get it.  Came out pretty good!
      *  The white was also one that I needed to be able to highlight up and I didn't want to use another grey. I ended up going with the Ghost White, which had a light blue to it, and I thought went with the grey color I mixed, too.  
      *  The colors blended well and I was able to use the same technique I used on the other butterscotch bunny of doing a feathering of lighter color to bring the hair detail forward.  
      *  Used a nuln oil diluted for the recesses and around the tail.  Worked good enough.  Wouldn't have minded a little more contrast, but still cute.
       
      Misses:
      *  I didn't highlight up the fleshy colors on the nose.  I somewhat feel it needs more of a "pop" and think it was a miss that I didn't.
      * The white is still on the weaker end and coudl have gone a little darker so I could bring the white hair forward more.  Using the zenithal highlight helped, but still wanted more.
       
      These were both super fast and only a handful of colors needed, so both bunnies were solid.  Open to any feedback ya got.  
       
      Now I gotta base them with something cute and fun...

      These are from the Bunny Girls Kickstarter project from a couple of years ago, run by Dark Fable miniatures.  They are on 7/8" washers, so would qualify as giant bunnies for most 28mm characters. 
       

       
      Here they are, joined by a trio of flying Peegs, from a recent Bad Squiddo campaign:
       

       
      And here's the lot of them, at different angles.
       

       
      Put a little wild life into your games :)

      Stole my brother's mini from out of his house the last time I was there and painted it for him.  Built a much more deserving base for this fierce Zombicide boss with a vicious streak a mile wide.

      Speed painted to send off to a Niece who really like rabbits.  Hopefully she likes these!
       
      Doom Bunny from Bombshell Miniatures:


      and a Vorpal Bunny.  I've had these guys for a very long time.  Made of resin.  Came in a bag with about a dozen or more in it.  Long forgotten who manufactured them:
      Sorry for the pics!  Finished the wash on the Doom Bunnies Axe and then snapped a few quick pics before packing them up to go in the mail.

      I painted these not long before moving to Austin. Originally they came with thin metal rods and seperate spearheads some of which had gotten lost over the years. (I'd found them on sale at the FLGS in Plainfield IL around 1999.) So I added some bits from various Reaper weapon packs and some GW sprues I had handy.

      Ok, my photo-fu isn't on point today it seems.










      Other than maybe touching up the bases, I'm going to leave them be. Now to find a somewhat scale Mr. McGregor for them to terrorize.
