So, even though it is now August I thought I would begin by showing you what July brought to the table.
The main project on my desk this month was getting my SWAT Team prepared for Hospital 911 from Two Hour Wargames, a supplement for All Things Zombie - Final Fade Out.
And here they are...
These are just a single Project Zeke Miniatures P-Sec Private Security Squad with an additional converted P-Sec officer for the commander.
The obvious choice would have been to paint them in the traditional blue/black uniform but I keep seeing SWAT officers wearing more military-coloured fatigues on TV and in films so, to be a bit different, I opted for the green/black motif you see before you. I also got a hold of some SWAT decals from Company B and they really complete the look.
Some of you may already recognise the SWAT commander (second from the right). Yup, it's Bridges from Safe House 2014.
The conversion was a simple head swap as I had a spare Bridges head after doing the A.J. conversion. I know a Stetson is hardly tactical but we're playing with zombies and toy soldiers here; I think I can probably afford some artistic license.
Anyway, here's a closer look...
SWAT Commander Bridges

Faithful followers of Safe House 2014 may remember mention that Bridges had a background in law enforcement - Texas Rangers, to be precise - so I thought it would be fun to develop the character further with a sort of 'origins' campaign as a SWAT Commander using the SWAT Team scenarios from Hospital 911 and some non-zombie encounters set before the outbreak, using the new Chain Reaction v.3.1 from Two Hour Wargames.
AARs of Bridges' story will be coming shortly.
Finally, in a recent trip to the Scottish Borders, I happened across this little number in a charity shop...
It's actually a bird house but the scale is ideal. And with THW's Lew's Booty coming out soon I thought this would make a great centrepiece in a rural campaign.
That's all for July. I will catch you fine survivors soon.
