Star Ducks are Done

Five Archive Miniatures Star Ducks

Five Archive Miniatures Star Ducks

Late last night before packing for a family vacation, I finished 36 of these Archive Miniatures Star Ducks.

For a few of the ducks whose weapons were not well cast, I ordered some retro science fiction weapons from the Dirk Garrison line from Wargames Supply Dump.  I think these retro weapons look good on the Star Ducks.  I will treat these as some sort of crew-served weapons.

There were 36 ducks in total.  I made three ten-duck units, including a squad leader and assistant squad leader.  There are also six extra ducks that will be the platoon leader and some crew-served weapons.

Sally 4th Terra Blocks Photo Booth

Buck

My teenage daughter just finished assembling and painting this small terrain item from Sally 4th.  It is a photo booth like the ones seen at tourist attractions and shopping malls.  The kit is part of Sally 4th’s Terra Blocks line.  For £3.50, I think this was a great value.  The kit went together very easily without the need to consult any instructions.  The detailing is deeply engraved, which makes painting easy.  My daughter knocked this out from plastic bag to the condition you see in just a couple of hours.

In this shot you can see the “curtain” pushed out of the way so that you can see the screen inside.  This will make a nice addition to our zombie shopping mall game.  I can see a zombie hiding in here and then jumping out to infect an unwary survivor.
