Zomtober: Week #4: Roving TV News crew.

27 Oct

Zombtober

So, I lead you to my last entry in Zomtober, rather than the usual hordes of dead things, I thought I’d make a little change and shake things up a bit by painting up some survivors instead.

This lot is from Irregular Miniatures in their 15mm Riot range (of which I have a lot of in my paint queue, you know rioters, cops, mounted riot police, dogs, etc) and is perfect for any zombie related skirmish scenarios as either a objective marker or even a crew looking to get the latest scoop on the biggest news story of their lives!

I love the way they have turned out, i’m still in two minds to if it was best to base them together, maybe it would have been a better idea to have them separate (Good thing is that they are cheap as chips, so I’ll maybe get a couple more sets to use too)

If your after these figures, get on over to Irregular Miniatures and have a look at their stuff, very reasonable and great service too!!

Zomtober is now over, but since I’m in a bit of a routine, you might see a bit more painting out of me (If time permits…)

Hope you enjoyed.

Catch you later.

Zomtober: Week #3. Better late than never….

24 Oct

Zombtober

 

Ok, Ok, so I am quite a tad late with this weeks zomtober entry. Real life gets in the way of any hobbyist persuit and while I have had ample chance to get access to my computer, I’m currently dosed with the flu, a damaged knee and aching bones.

Never the less, I did manage to get a couple of likkle zomers done (excuse the pics, they are just ok, not great)

As usual, I’m working through the old glory/blue moon manufacturing 15mm zombies I got a while back.

This time, we have the first crawler type I have in the horde, which I’ve made a bit more bloodied and gruesome, and the bare chested one which I adopted an easy brown/pale flesh gradient with minimal highlights. Easy and effective (plus saves messing around with tons of different pots of colour open etc)

I will be back with the last entry, all being well, on time on Sunday.

Later!

Zomtober Week #2: Old Glory 15mm Zombies.

14 Oct

Zombtober

Hello there everyone, well this weeks Zomtober painting entry is a little late by a day, but here they are. Yesterday was pretty busy, so I wasn’t able to get anything done or posted, so sorry my bad!

These are the first of the pack of old glory 15mm zombies I got a few months ago,, and I must say that I love the sculpts and sheer variety in the packs. Even so I’m not a big fan of zombies with weapons, I kinda like the cleaver dude. All in all great sculpts with these zombies.

Well, bust today too, so no long post at all, so ciao for now!

Zomtober 2013: Grinning Skull gets ready to share in Zomtober madness!

6 Oct

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, I’m taking part in the Zomtober festivities (see more details on Zomtober here  and here) In which all participants must paint up at least one survivor or zombie figure per week during the month. Whilst I think most of us taking part will be 28mm zombie gamers, for myself at least in our house, the apocolypse is firmly in the 15mm size!

To continue with my HO zombie hordes, I’d like to present my Zomtober entry, even bigger swarms of the dead!

As you can see, these swarm bases are made up from the very versatile model railway civilian figures in 1/87, easily available from ebay or model railway suppliers. (check out more HO hordes) There’s a “funny” story attached to me finishing these critters off, which involves my wife throwing away all of my basing materials (you know, static grasses, flocks, gravel, lichen etc etc) so I am a bit limited to basing options here! That is until she’s spent quite a bit of cash replacing all what she’s accidentally thrown out!

I’ll be using the larger horde bases to represent big fast moving deadlier swarms during gameplay, that’s why I only did three, which is more than enough, as now my undead horde for 15mm is extremely large, with loads more I haven’t even started yet (including the really nifty Old Glory pack I picked up a bit ago, what I will be painting next for next weeks zomtober entry!)
