About the Project

After a long break from the hobbie I find myself returning in my late 30s. As a teenager I played 40K, Necromunda & Gorka Morka. I also had a bit of Warhammer Fantasy stuff. But I am brought back by Dungeons & Dragons. As a teenager I had no interest in DND but never really knew what it was. After curiously listening to some DND podcasts I realised that it was a rather interesting thing. Well once my kids heard about DND they wanted to play! So out came the Lego and some rules were quickly created. This was the start of our first Role Play game.

After a couple of failed attempts I was able to construct some legs.

Now with the main frame done it’s time to gap fill and add all the details.

Using various bits I constructed the side saddle motorbike part of the walker. While trying to work out how to make the legs.

Surprisingly I couldn’t find an easy way to make complicated hydraulic style walker legs.

Making stuff was always my favourite part of the hobbie. So I decided to make a side saddle motorbike chicken walker thing.

I made a modified excavator digger arm design for the legs. Then started off with a model, a clothes peg & a wall plug.

Just ended sticking bits together at this stage.

The old bits box was dugout the cellar. (My son had recently got the 40k Recruit box so I stole some necron parts.)

After painting some 80’s minis I decided to paint some 90’s minis.

These ones were already painted so I just added to the old paint job.

These are another group of adventures for the campaign.

I enjoyed buying and painting some new minis. Now it was time to fish out and paint up some old ones.

Testing out how best to flock the scenery. I’ve never really done any flocking before but it seems simple enough.

I’ve made some small bits of scatter terrain. Just plywood discs, stones and tile grout.

Also flocking up a bit of MDF to use as a base.

Lego was great for making scenery. With the move to minis I have a long list of stuff to make.

  1. I’m going to be taking inspiration from Puzzlewood for my forest bits.

Just using cut up polystyrene packaging with some stones stuck on. Then covering it all with toilet roll soaked in PVA.

With the Adventurers table ready it was time for generic foes.

I’ve gone down the zombie route. They are nice and fun for the family to chop up without morale issues arising.

I quickly realised I needed more zombies. You can never really have enough zombies.

An unexpected birthday present solved the problem in the form of GW deadwalker zombies.

After a successful start to the family Role Play Campaign. It seemed like a good excuse to buy some minis.

To my surprise there are lots of different companies producing minis now. Also loads of different games.

After a lot of looking I found some minis that matched the Lego team the wife and kids created.

Just a couple of weapon swaps got some Otherworld miniatures to look the part.
