Mansions of Madness – The Riots

A reasonable bit of weather and a break in work activities in the garage, meant I could get in there and catch up on some varnishing – a couple of ships, Scharnhorst and Gneisenau, but mostly MoM minis.

The Riots from the core set are the first of those and there’s not a lot to say about them to be honest. They’re not great figures and I didn’t waste any time on them, using mostly inks and contrast paints over a zenithal prime, though once they were based, I was actually quite pleased with the results. Anyway, here they are…

  1. For quick paintjobs these look good! On the one hand I can see what you mean about them not being the best sculpted minis, but on the other hand they’ll fill their rioting roles well.

    1. Thanks Matt.
      I just did the minimum to get them to the table, but from gaming distance, I think they’ll play their part quite well.

  2. For quick paints Justin they look great, shame about the shovel handles.

    1. Lol, thanks Dave. I couldn’t be bothered to try straightening them. I figured he’s just walloped someone over the head with it and bent it!

  3. I think they’ve come out well. Justin! 🙂 Hope we’re getting Gneisenau and Scharnhorst pictures soon!

  4. You’re not going to believe it but I thought these were the coolest minis in the box when I got MoM. I always liked minis that have multiple models on a single base. Unfortunately, the noses on these guys are absolutely pants (as you would say) and even worse, its impossible to straighten out the plastic since it is so thin and rubbery. With all that said, you did a good job painting them up and I’d imagine they didn’t take too long either! 🙂

    1. Yes, their faces look like they’re melting away, but I must say they look ‘bostin’ (good Black Country word) on the table!🙂

      1. Very bostin indeed! Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go play with wammell 😀 I did a little research to learn some Black Country slang just now. I learned a couple new words anyway!

      2. Wammel! I had to look that one up myself, never heard of it before. A dog eh? I reckon it’s an old word not in regular use now. Usually, an ‘A’ is pronounced as an ‘O’, so it would sound ‘Wommal’. We say, Bonk instead of Bank, which got me in trouble when I was younger, asking someone where I could find a Bonk!😂

      3. It was on some Youtube video so I was hoping the one I watched was right haha. The accent in the video I watched was pretty thick. I would think many Americans would struggle to understand people from the Black Country and maybe even a few English people would have that problem too haha! Either way, you asking for a bonk did give me a laugh! 😀 That is actually the name of a video game character as well. He’s a cave man kid with some attitude because he was popular in the 1990’s and everyone had to have a little attitude back then 🙂

      4. Where I’m originally from sits on the very edge of the Black Country and hasn’t the broadest of accents. Fortunately, I’ve lost most of mine over the years – I hope!

      5. No shame in sounding like where you’re from, mate! I have no accent to speak of so its quite boring to hear me talk. I sound like just another American as it turns out 🙂 The US has way fewer accents compared to your comparatively smaller country but I bet you already knew that!

      6. Oh, there’s plenty of shame in this country, especially if you’re from certain areas.
        When I was in the RAF I was put forward for an Engineering degree to go on to become an officer, but I turned it down when they told me I’d have to put my wedding on hold and lose my accent!
        Strange, for such a large country there doesn’t appear to be much in the way of dialects in the US. I presumed there would be more, after all, most of what we hear here is from actors and presenters, so it doesn’t give a fair portrayal, but when I’ve visited the country, or interacted with your servicemen elsewhere, now that I come to think of it, they all sounded the same!

      7. That is true. I’d imagine up North (aka Geordies) or even in your neck of the woods is where the accent is frowned upon. That sort of thing doesn’t happen in the US to the degree that it does in England though we have plenty of our own problems too.

        There are several different accents in the South and there are a few on the East Coast like New York and Boston but I would say they’re pretty minimal and I rarely come across people with a strong accent. It is a curious thing but that’s life in the US for you!

      8. Brum and Liverpudlian Accents tend to get the worst reception. The Geordie accent, especially when it’s soft, is actually quite nice to listen to, but then you get the real, harsh, fast Geordies where you can’t understand a word they’re saying!

        I think you recognise the accents of your own country much easier than visitors do – to me, they’re all much the same… with the odd exception 😉

      9. Those Scousers are hard to understand, mate! 🙂 And to be fair, you’re right about American accents. We don’t throw extra u’s in words like color that don’t need them and we all sound the same to English people, I reckon 😉

  5. Really like this colour scheme you have done has inspired me to do something similar 🙂
