Hungry for blood...

Hey guys/gals/automatons from far-flung solar systems...

Been a short while since I've updated, for various reasons - real life got in the way slightly with work and socialising, I got a couple of brilliant games for the Xbox360 (Assassins Creed 2 and Red Dead Redemption) and I spent a little bit of time building various miniatures. I'm currently involved in a painting challenge on The Ammobunker forum (where I am also a moderator) which is a monthly paint-as-much-as-you-can-for-your-assigned-team type of affair, so in the past week I've been trying to get a few different miniatures finished. This here is the first...

This is the Nazi Vampire from the Westwind "Secrets of the Third Reich" Weird World War II line. My friend gave me a link to it a few weeks ago and I picked it up with some spare Paypal funds. I love the feel that it's actually an integrated part of the Nazi forces, rather than a fantasy vampire tacked on to a sci-fi line. The paint job is pretty basic - I couldn't really do much with the trenchcoat. I'm very happy with the way he's turned out though, and I'm a big fan of the miniature.

I have a bunch more miniatures finished and photographed so expect a few more updates in the coming days...
