Hasslefree Miniatures Newsletter

Some interesting new models from the guys and gals at Hasslefree Miniatures...

Happy Summer Solstice!
(Yeah I'm leaving the title there even though we missed sending it last Sunday, mostly as there's no such thing as 'Happy a Week After Summer Solstice!' :) )

I wrote some of this on my phone at Stonehenge btw, like literally in the Stonehenge circle. They allow visitors access on the Solstices (said visitors are an utter nightmare btw, If you want to do the same thing I'd go quickly if I were you as there's a likelihood they won't allow it for much longer).

We have new metal this week, as we're a week late the second set of metal releases will bleed into July but they will be in two weeks time. We'll fill the gap with a 'Kev Summer Challenge', more info on that at the bottom of the newsletter.

On with the awesome!

Resin Master - Foxtrot
'Foxtrot' is a post-apocalyptic wanderer of the badlands.  She comes complete with choice of weapons (an automatic or a rifle), choice of heads (buzzcut or gasmask and crazy hair/wig) and choice of left arm (regular or mechanised).
Available as a single set with 1 body and a sprue of all options HERE

Or as a double pack with 1 sprue but 2 bodies HERE

Resin Master - Jeanne
young female 'paladin' from a peasant background, Jeanne is a follower of the One God. This has made her a number of enemies amongst the noble followers of the Old Gods but she continues to defy her age and has been the lynchpin in a number of important battles.
Seen her in full plate armour, with underlying chain, and armed with a bastard sword.

Resin Master - Young Maiden
No, we haven't forgotten a name. We just don't name our villagers, so she's simply 'young maiden':)

It's been a while since we added to that particular line so I'd almost forgotten myself.  This mini came about as a side effect of airport security trashing some Grymn greens that Kev had been working on while at Reapercon. Don't worry, he has now fixed them, but it removed any enthusiasm he had for working on them for a while and this young lady was a pallette cleanser.

The Penn State Five
These are the core members of a small group of hardened Zombocalypse survivors whose base of operations is in the Quaker state.
Also available separately this group consists of (l-r) Earl, Vince, Levon, Jim & Taylor. The group pack includes a healthy discount on the invdividual purchases.

Levon, FDNY Survivor
Levon was an FDNY Firefighter before the Zombocalypse and he's stuck to what he knows since then. Armed with one of his old axes, a pistol and wearing an old uniform that still sorta fits.
After New York was overrun he drifted south and found himself hooking up with a group of Survivors from the Quaker State.

Taylor, Penn State Survivor
Taylor is part of a small group of Zombocalypse survivors thrown together by circumstance. Separated from her family during the outbreak, she is unaware of how her parents or little sister Beth fared. Seen here in light clothing with a pistol and very dynamic pose.

Vince, Hardened Biker
Vince is an ex-biker gang member from Philly. After having to put down a number of his brothers during the outbreak he has since hooked up with a small, hardened group of survivors.
Seen here with a basic automatic pistol and very dynamic pose.

Jim, Toubled Vet
After a tour of Vietnam as basically a child, Jim returned to the Steel City a broken man. Haunted by the events of his service Jim lived a pretty solitary life until the day of the outbreak.
He fairly quickly chose between  'snap out of it' or 'die' and has, so far, managed to overcome his inner demons and is using his almost-forgotten Special Forces skills to be a welcome member of the Penn State survivor group.
Seen here with a basic pistol and ubiquitous ex-army clothing.

Earl, Bank Manager Extraordinaire
Earl was your average guy pre-Apocalypse. A bank manager at Wells Fargo, single, worked out semi-regularly, enjoyed sushi at the weekends with his friends.
Earl killed 57 infected and 13 people in the first week of the outbreak, including his entire sushi gang. You'd be surprised what the average guy has inside him when the chips are down.
Seen here working the slide of his trusty automatic.

And Finally...
'Over the following week on our FB page we will be announcing the parts of Kev's 'Summer Challenge'. It's been a while since our last one due to the move etc. so we'll be doing some special stuff and we have found some interesting and alcoholic rewards for Kev when he undoubtedly steps up to the plate :)
We will also be shortly adding Red Box Games to our HF page, probably starting next weekend. As we'll be inking every mini and taking new phtoos etc. we'll be adding them race by race throughout the week. It might take some time but we'll get them all on there!

Our Gourmet Gaming Snacks have proven quite popular so far (For those of you in the States, there's still a hold on them for you until we see what happened with our early test orders). We'll be adding some more soon, including Mead flavoured Marzipans and Truffles! We'll also be restocking the things you seem to have really fancied, such as the Absinthe Marzipan and Mouth Burning Chilli Jerky's :)

Alright, that's it, 'til next time,
