I joined Rebel Minis Red Ops 5: Asylum kickstarter, and received my package pretty quickly. The pledge level was reached very quickly. The figures are available at Rebel Minis, but as of this morning, the rules are not up.
Rebel Minis Horror Packs
In my box are 2 d6, a translucent ruler, the rule book, and 7 gangs with an additional 2 creepy children. Rebel Minis acquired this line of 28mm horror miniatures from Comfy Chair.
If you are familiar with Two Hour Wargames ruleset Chain Reaction: Final Version, you'll have no problem with these rules. The rule set is digest size, printed on gloss paper, center stapled and easy to follow. Pages 4 - 8 provide background with a history of Artigo Island. There are pictures of some of the miniatures well-painted (in b/w) sprinkled through the rules. Weapons are modern with what you are likely to find on the island. It's basically civilian combat, so no RPG's or HMG's. However, flash bang grenades and molotov cocktails are accounted for, as are body armor and shields(!).
With further emulation of Vampifan's great blog, Vampifan's World of the Undead here are the first 2 gangs of 4 that I have finished.
These are the Pig Boys, a really grungy group.
They have knives, and sawed-off shotguns. The giant in the center has an enormous communication device. Their belts are hung with pig trotters and snouts. (Amazing how many pictures you can get if you Google "pig trotters") I seldom add blood to my figures, but they kind of demanded it. For some unknown reason, I took it into my head to paint the giant as an albino. The smudges on their aprons and the leader's belly are Reaper Pro Paint Brick Red. I painted it on thinly, as I wanted a more stained look. The two figures with the outstretched knives have a separate left arm from the elbow down. Here is the only niggle I have with the figures. Separate parts have little location aid and are difficult to pin.
Overall, I'm happy with the figures. There are some more vague fittings that I will cover in future
posts. As I finish 2 gangs of 4, I will post them, and I post them individually on my Facebook page.
