I paint small metal and plastic figures and rarely get to play with them. But that is fine with me.

Zomtober 2018! (Week 1)

It's here again! The month in which (some) hobbyists dedicate their month-o'-October work to some "tober" or another. (Ork/Dread/Ink/mastur/etc)

I aim to fulfill the Zombie side of things cos, ya know, it's October and Halloween and that just makes far more sense than working on greenskins, walking robot sarcophagi, drawing or other stuff.

And the rules are really simple. Just post some painted zombie figs or zombie theme'd (Survivors, etc) figs that one has worked on (And completed!) each Sunday of October. There's a nice group of blogs that have jumped on the Zomtober bandwagon this year and Simon Quinton's blog has a roll listing if anyone is interested in checking out some more Zomtober theme'd posts.

I started painting these a bit late due to some unexpected health issues with my boy mid-week so not more to post than a couple of walkers for Week 1, but they'll do!

These two are Mr Roadkill and Missus Half-Baked. Really like zombies that are a flipping mess and they certainly fit that bill. Might want to wear ankle/shin protection!

  1. Hope the boy is ok. These turned out nicely for only half a figure each.

    1. Thanks LGP. He should be fine.

      Hehe, yep, but of a cheap offering, but I felt better than none at all.

    1. Cheers Ivor. They are part of the Project Z range by Warlord Games. Quite characterful sculpts and affordable too!

  3. Is it that time already?
    Nice zombies. I agree that the ones who are broken are a little more cool.
    Good luck in the month! 😀

  5. Oh now those are some seriously creepy crawlers, Dai. Very nice work indeed :-)

  6. Two crawlers that look great are not to be sniffed at. You only need to post one figure minimum so this is already 200% the output! Hope the young one is feeling better!

    1. Aw, but your Japanese gaming adventures surely must count for something?

      Thanks mate.

  8. Wouldn't two half zombies technically count as one zombie? ;) Nice work.

  10. Nice work Dai - a zombie horde isn't complete without really chewed up individuals, and this pair really fit the bill!
    Great start to the month :-)

    1. Thanks! There does need to be a nice variety of decomp amongst the horde for sure, they can't all be pretty.

  11. I like ‘crawlers’ as well, they add a height variation to a horde as well as a lot of gore.

    Really nicely done. I like the brightness of the yellow on the woman.
