After making my Lurker variant using one of the existing Walking Dead models, I found that I wanted more but didn’t want to start ripping apart a bunch of my already painted doubles so I’ll have to wait to see what other doubles I might get later on. I don’t want to have to wait too long so I went in search of some modern figure bodies that I might be able to use. Eventually, I found a set of dead body figures from TTCombat and after receiving them, I found they work quite well.

I recently spent some time painting up something besides my black and white Walking Dead collection (shocking, I know). I talked earlier about receiving Championship Formula Racing (CFR) and my 1976 F1 cars from Shapeways and I decided to start painting them up.
As I mentioned in my Lurker post, I picked up a second Rick on Horse set on accident so I’ve been looking at what to do with the extra miniatures. Since I found a nice use of the extra duplicate walker, I decided I should do something with the extra Rick figure too.
Checking out some of the upcoming expansions, I saw the retail booster of Ezekiel and his tiger, Shiva.
This week I was able to finish up a couple more items on my Walking Dead to-do list: the Rick on Horse figure and my cheap plastic toy tank.
The tank was exceedingly easy as I try not to spend too much time on terrain if I can help it. After a comment on my initial post about the tank type, I started looking into it and found that it kind of resembled an M48 Patton:
As I discussed last week, I was pretty excited about seeing some 8th Century board games. The more I researched into what the games might be, the more intrigued I became and so I decided to make a replica of that Tafl game (I assume it is Tablut) so that I can play it and complete the circle, so to speak.
A new exhibit opened up at our local History Museum titled “Vikings: Beyond the Legend” and it caught my attention so we decided to check it out. While going through a lot of the standard museum artifacts and the kids were busy talking to several of the reenactors the exhibit had, I stumbled upon a set of artifacts that caught my eye.
