Last Days – Slow Progress But Progress Never The Less

Have you ever noticed that with a touch of paint, in this case just an undercoat of simple white paint, the detail on a great miniature jumps out at you and can actually give you a much needed jolt of motivation.

When I bought these figures I knew they were good. Hasslefree miniatures have for as long as I can remember provided great, highly detailed, miniatures. Sadly these have sat on my ‘to do’ shelf for longer than they should have done, but as I was doing some undercoating at the weekend, they got pulled out, completed and basecoated.

Only then did I see the real detail and character in each if them.

These were bought to be used as a modern, zombie fighting, group of survivors for Last Days, one of the Osprey Games rulesets that we picked up earlier in the year.

The first figures included in this lot include the groups selfless leader Kev, with his fire axe. The next is the groups ‘mother figure’ a selfless first aider… with a shotgun…

As my leader is classed as selfless I can only take up to 25% of the force from another keyword selection.  For this I have chosen two ‘trained’ members. A British bobby and his Sargeant.  Two more shotguns should add a bit more firepower to a fairly low tech team.

The remainder of the force are all ‘neutral’ choices, two survivors with pistols and two kids with clubs (sadly chainsaws are not available to starting teams). All basic weapons that they can use to protect themselves from any roaming zombies (and my opponents team).

Seeing these in their full glory should help me to get moving on finishing up this small team.  Hopefully…

  1. Got in to Hasslefree minis a year or so ago, in fact I’m waiting on another order to come this week. Fantastic detail, true 28’s and great looking figures across a number of genres. Looking forward to seeing these painted up.
