More Cursed City Beasts

I used the past two weeks to paint up some more Cursed City enemies. I finished the Bat Swarms and made good progress on the Vargskyr. Last week, I also got to play a game of Infinity – my first one of N4 and the first in about one and a half years!

These Bat Swarms are really nice miniatures and painted up quite fast. If there were rules to add in the Fell Bats from the Soulblight Gravelords range into Cursed City, I could see myself getting a box and painting them up in the same scheme. They might even pull double duty and get used as Gundabad War Bats in MESBG, even if the bases would not match up.

And here is another WIP of the Vargskyr - quite a big model! The brighter underside and the claws are still left to do and I'm pretty happy with the blend on the hands for example. Once the base is done, it will be a really great center piece!
After the Vargskyr I will get onto the Zombies and then its not that much more to have a fully painted game!

And of course, to celebrate me playing a game of Infinity, here are a few of the MVPs and their nemeses. I managed to incur only a minor loss and had great fun – will have to play more games soon! And lastly one scenic shot of my Bounty Hunter on bike masquerading as a Kum Rider.

Cursed City Rats and Objectives

These past two weeks I got to some more models from the Cursed City box: I painted the swarms of Corpse Rats and all of the objectives and the additional pieces such as the cats and the gargoyles. I also started painting the Vargskyr.

Corpse Rats

First up, here are the Corpse Rats. Quite nice swarms and not to many colours so they painted up rather fast. Only hurdle is that they are quite fiddly and some of the rats in the middle are hard to reach. All in all, they are surely not my best paintjobs, but as always a nice base elevates a mediocre paintjob and the goal was the finish them to play the game with painted miniatures.

Cursed City Objectives

These were quite fun to convert - just switching a few bits around to make them all unique and my own. The gravestone required a bit of shaving because of some sculpted roses and the other marker comes from one of the zombies themselves. I quite like the mechanic in the game where they use these gravestones to spawn more zombies and I plan to make some more to make the game a bit harder and have the possibility for a real zombie horde.

These few miniatures seem to be pretty much only filler since there was space on the sprues. I have not yet found any use for them in the game, but who could say no to cats? I really had some great fun putting moss on the gargoyles - great miniatures!

Vargskyr (WIP)

And lastly here is a WIP of my Vargskyr. A very cool model and I think it will look great once I have blended the colours!
