Need to know where to go in an apocolypse? Get the Seattle Doomsday Map on Kickstarter!

8 Feb

This very cool concept over on Kickstarter is something I thought I would point out for post apoc/zombie fans, wargamers and roleplayers. Here is presented a full map of Seattle in the midst of a apocolyptic scenario, this would make a great prop, or campaign map for your zombie wargaming campaigns, or just a cool poster! It is the brainchild of Tony Dowler, the creator of this unique project  and I must say I think this is a winner as there is loads of potential uses for this. You can have the map in a variety of different formats (You can even contact him about getting the PDF in high res so you can use it with miniatures or RPGs)

This is one I will be going for I think for that very reason as it will be a great addition for my forthcoming uber campaign. I hope that he  will have a go at doing the same treatment for a whole host of cities, not only in the US but some UK and European ones as well.

I love the folding street map version too, I can see the appeal to zombie and post apoc RPGs to add  another dimension during the game, and to add some atmospheric wall dressing in your play area!

Go and check it out and see it for yourself, look on the plus side….at least you’ll know where to go if you get lost in post apocolyptic Seattle…

15mm Doomsday cult gains more followers, and assassins….

24 Sep

In the bag of Miniatures my wife bought for me from ebay, (bless her!!) as well as a stack of fantasy heroes and such were some ninja. What am I going to do with these? What about Doomsday cult thugee assassins? They are masked, dressed in dark colours and as we know, Ninja kick ass! They’re the same pose and are armed just with a katana/ninjato oriental sword. Ok, so they don’t have guns, but my next order to 15mm.co.uk will sort that out with some of their excellent cultists.


Who’s to say they don’t carry a hand weapon under their ninja robes? However I would like some that did have a handgun showing (If you can obtain them in 15mm?) Interestingly also in the figures she got me were some robed figures,one with a banner with a skull atop (Ideal for my icon bearer) and two hooded figures armed with scythes (ala the grim reaper) These have been assimilated into the doomsday cult ready to bring 15mm scale elder god style carnage to my tabletop soon! the great thing about the cult is its usable in other genres too, I have a feeling I’m going to have to do a full army…..

15mm Doomsday cultists….

20 Sep

I thought I would post a couple of pics to show you my Cultists, originally they are from a historical manufacturer (donnington I think, but please correct me if I’m wrong) I have had them for quite a while in amongst my lead mountain so I reckon these will be the core of a new enemy force, throwin some eldritch horrors, cultists with weapons and an odd sacrifice and we are cooking with gas….

Maybe I will sculpt that big Cthulhu creature for them to summon and smash up the enemy?…..

If anyone has some good ideas for additional cultists to join their party, let me know…
