Some more Hasslefree Minis Survivors

Hi, friends. Here's a few more HassleFree Miniatures minis I'm using as Survivors.
This is Bubba, an Elvis impersonator. 
Next up are Jess and Tony. Tony is looking at a cellphone in his hand.
These two are Witch Hazel and William.. I'm hoping to use them when Two Hour Wargames releases After the Horsemen, their post-apoc Horror supplement for ATZ.

I only have a few Hasslefree Minis left to be painted. My son Stephen is working on not Nicholas Angel from Hot Fuzz, and PC Sam Ford is in the line for painting. Also just primered four EM4 suits and the Tinpot Dictator for use with the Presidential Limo I featured a few posts back.

Nice looking stuff. Hasslefree minis look great, though I haven't (yet) picked up any myself.

I really like the bloodwork on Tony. Can't wait to see what else you have.

Jay said...

Great job, Lucky! The faded blue jeans on Bubba are fantastic.

@Adam: Thanks very much. I tried something different for the blood this time. I used a triad of Reaper reds and stippled them on with a GW small drybrush.

@Jay: Thanks, Jay. I sort of pictured him as a low-rent Elvis impersonator and went with denim as the fabric for his Elvis suit, since he couldn't afford anything more dramatic. Not and still have a BA pistol. :)

Bubba, an Elvis impersonator-that's just great Joe. The guy with the cell phone is going down for sure. Witch Hazel is my favorite though and love the color choice you made on her,

Ray Rousell said...

Hassle free do make some excellent figures, love the Elvis one!!!

Mecha Ace said...

Some really nice paint jobs on these, especially liking Elvis and Tony.

Mathyoo said...

Bubba is really super well done. Now you need to get yourself RAFM impersonators, so you can have yourself and Elivs gang :D

Great work on the rest as well. Jess is probably my favorite female mini in that range.

Looking really good! I have that elvis lying around somewhere...

And nice to see another Jess/Chloe version hehe

You have painted the minis really well, I especially like the Tony, he's t-shirt is great.

lrqan said...

I like these a great deal, you've done well especially the characterisation you've got into them.

Vampifan said...

You just can't go wrong with Hasslefree adventurers. I have to agree with you, I am eagerly awaiting the release of After The Horsemen. Come on, THW, get your finger out and release it!

The Angry Lurker said...

The only one I don't have is witch Hazel but yours are nicer!

Zabadak said...

Good paintwork on those Joe.
Can't say that I'm eagerly awaiting THW ATH, but the rules may iron out some of the quirks in ATZ.

Brummie said...

Great job on all of 'em. Love the Bubba mini he is on my list to get at some point. Love the splatter marks on Tony.

Luckyjoe said...

@Anne: Thanks. You're right about Tony getting it. He's based on Ed from Shawn of the Dead. I'm glad you liked the colors I used for Witch Hazel, I almost did her all in black like bad Willow from Buffy.

@Ray: I agree. I saw Bubba first on Vampifan's blog a while back and knew I would get one someday.

@Mecha Ace: Thanks. These were fun to paint.

@Lord Siwoc: You should paint up your Elvis. I was putting him off because I thought he'd be too difficult, but he wasn't hard at all. I really liked the way you did your Chloe. That helped me finally get mine painted. :)

@The Extraordinarii: Thanks. I had tried painting the lettering from the movie on his shirt, but couldn't get it right so I gave up on that and added bloodstains. Can't go wrong with a little blood in Zombie gaming. :)

@Irqan: Thanks very much. You do that very well, too, with your minis and backstories.

@Vampifan: Yeah, I second that. Though I must admit I've been tempted by Rebels and Rifles to do a little American Civil War gaming in the interim. :)

@Fran: Thanks very much! I doubt mine are better. I'll be happy with almost as good. I've seen your paintjobs on your blog. They're excellent.

Luckyjoe said...

Ooops, I missed a few comments while typing.

@Mathyoo: Thanks. An Elvis gang would be cool.

@Zabadak: Each ruleset does seem to fix some things from the previous release, though not all of the changes are ones I want to adopt. I've just been picking and choosing what I like. Have you looked at "Chain Reaction: Final Version"? I think some people are using some of the new content in it to fix a lot of things in the other THW games.

@Brummie: Thanks very much. I think the splatter method I tried worked pretty well. I may adopt it for all my splatter work in future. :)

Henry's Tat said...

Very cool.

Spacejacker said...

Nice work Joe, lovely figures!

Lead Legion said...

Jess and Buba are definately my favorites.

Gunrunner said...

Hey Joe! Loving the Hasslefree minis! I changed scale to 15mm last year and sold all my 28mm minis ......except Bubba. As a guitar player myself, I couldn't bear to part with it!

Zerloon said...

Bubba is great, and as a Buffy fan I really like Willow and Spike minis!

Luckyjoe said...

Hi, Zerloon. Thanks very much.
