Greetings Terrans, how goes it? Phew, life after Conan eh? Well, I love having a project to do, but I must admit that it is nice to be able to just pick something whimsical up and paint it for the hell of it… This week is exactly that – a piece of whimsy inspired by this guy from the Conan set:
This is a serious mini, but while I was painting it, there was a bit of me that couldn’t help seeing ‘it’ as a him, and ‘him’ as an old caretaker in a wolf-man costume. Inevitably, my mind took me here:
These are the catchily named ‘HFN016 Gang & Dog’ from Hasslefree Minis – a lovely set of sculpts that were an absolute delight to paint. Here they are individually(ish):
And a final action pic where either someone is about to not get away with it thanks to those meddling kids, or those meddling kids are about to get their throats torn out…
That’s all for this week folks – short but sweet!
Lovely paintwork there matey, as a kid I had a bit of a crush on Daphne but one the live action movies came out I switched to Velma! (especially in that orange plastic catsuit!) 😉
Roger, *everyone* knows that Velma is the hot one :-)
Cheers mate – Velma’s the best, no two ways about it 😊
Excellent work on all these, sir! The werewolf looks great but those Hasslefree Scooby Doo guys are just magnificent. I’ve got the post-apoc versions and they’re such good sculpts.
Cheers mate, they were great fun – glad you like ‘em 😊
Very nicely done mate and I’ve had my eye on these Hasslefree figures myself for sometime. Ideally I wanted to find a suitable van to go with them but couldn’t seem to find one the last time I looked. Might have to take another look or like you just do the figures anyway. Great stuff. 🙂
Cheers dude, they were a lovely little mini-project😊

Very nice- need a set of masked villans now.
I know right? I’m thinking of converting a few unmasked monsters for lols 😁
Bugger I was going to call my next project HFN061 haha. Very cool Alex. I love the vibrant colours and they’re really nice looking sculpts.
Haha, cheers mate – they are lovely lil’ figures

Great work on all Alex, and a very fitting way to combine the monster and gang
Cheers mate – always good to have some paranormal investigators on hand for a bit of casual gaming :-)
Love the wolf man!
Cheers – he’s wonderfully cheesy isn’t he? :-)

Scooby and gang… Superbly nostalgic, love ’em!
Cheers mate, nice to mix it up a bit now and then :-)
Well, I was going to comment on the figures but now it would appear I need to catch up on watching Scooby Doo films! Very nice minis, Alex! :-)
:-) Cheers mate – just a bit of fun
Brilliant, who needs Conan when the Scooby Doo gang are here? Mind you, if that wolfman is just a caretaker in a costume then the next time he goes up against the great barbarian it might prove to be a brief and one sided experience..! ;-)
Cheers dude – I reckon Scoob and the gang would run rings around the big fella 😂
Excellent stuff, you’ve got the I-can’t-believe-it’s-not-Scooby-Doo colours perfect. I look forward to reading about your next game where they take on a bodybuilding class ;)
😂 Cheers dude – great scenario idea!
