As the glorious English summer continues unabated and many of us, including it would appear the Australian cricket team, seem to be struggling with motivation there has been a notable slowing of productivity here at 'Awdry Towers'. That said I'm pleased to reveal that the 'Sixth Form' has safely departed the painting table and are ready to do battle with the undead.
The senior members of the school have always had a reputation of getting what they want and a happy to use whatever skills they have at there disposal. So in a bid to produce a unique group the three bodies used were all from 'Hasslefree Miniatures' with a couple of head swops, using one of 'Crooked Dice's' accessory packs; such is the limit of my conversion skills.
Pleats were added to the skirt to tie them in to the rest of the group and in this case the pistol holster was removed as I wanted the girls to be armed only with what they could find in or around the school grounds.
Again pleats were added and the sledgehammer removed, it would go to making Rose's improbable armament! - the results of which can be seen here.
Now by my reckoning I should now have enough of these teenage tearaways to start the scenario, but I still seem to be lacking a zombie or two not to mention a considerable amount of terrain and of course a board to play it on - it would appear that there really is no rest for the wicked! I understand that we might see a break in the weather soon, which will certainly be welcomed by some of us but perhaps coming a smidgen too late for our visiting Antipodean athletes?
