Zomtober Post 1


This is my first year of trying out for Zomtober and I am already late for the first post mainly due to being out yesterday.

The detail behind  zombtober can be found on Pulpcitizen's post HERE. (Also the source of the banner at the top.) but the rules are simple. To take part you just need to paint one Zombie or Survivor (or more!) each week, in any scale you like, posting it to your blog by the Sunday (we use Sunday's as the end of each Zomtober week). So that means one or more minis each week on or before the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th of October 2015.




My first subject is an old Citadel Zombie C18 Rustbone square based although I am toying with moving him to a circle base as most of my other stuff is already on circles. That is why there is no flock.

He is newly dead with a normal flesh tone and dripping blood, with a lot of his skin torn off free showing skeletal arms.


Only took me some 20+ years to finally get around to painting.


I have another 7 C18 zombies undercoated and ready to go as well as a later zombie standard bearer. However I fully expect to be distracted by some moderns Z's before the month is out. Or maybe make a start on that group of biker gang survivors.


Others chasing the dream are:-

A great first entry, Ant Master. I'm with you... round bases over square.

Nicely done. 20 years is worse than my normal whining of a few months :)
Also, go round!

Dragon - Part Two

Very limited progress this month.

I have cleaned up the base dragon but have not yet started pinning. In respect to the base I added some green stuff to give the impression the treasure was piled up on a dungeon floor.


New set of Mordheim Buildings

Last month I finished off my second set of GW Mordheim buildings. Both sets now complete, just need to get around to playing some games.




A corpse of Vampires

Back before it was trendy I loved Vampires, the scary, evil serial killer types. Not your more modern shiny, vegetarian reformed serial killer types who have human girlfriends and deny their true nature. Think Salam's Lot, Dracula, Anno Dracula, 30 Days of Nights, Let the right one in, I am legend (which I must re-read), Martin the vampire, Ultraviolet, Near Dark, Byzantium, and perhaps the early Anne Rice stuff.

So over the years I seemed to have amassed and painted a few starting back with the original citadel FF58 - Vampire through to more modern such as Otherworld Miniatures more recent UD10 - Vampire.

I still have a few unpainted (in fact some still blister packed) but what follows is a gallery of the ones done to date.
