Zomtober Week 5



This week was slowed down by a water leak from an upstairs shower to a ground floor closet.  Quite a mess!  This slowed down my progress on my zombie horde...
Water and drywall do not mix!
I worked on two groups of toxic zombies from the Toxic Mall expansion for Zombicide. I added yellow/green highlights to designate them as 'toxic'.
Red group zombies

I also repainted (mostly just retouching the existing scheme) a Horrorclix 'candystriper' which seemed to be a vampire type character of some sort.  I repainted the flesh to be less pale and red and more normal.  I added some additional red touches to her outfit and then based her on a plastic coin decorated with some craft paper to look like a tile floor.

Survivor and scenery

Finally I added a trash dumpster from Reaper Bones.  Great item for the urban landscape.  I left the lid unglued so it opens.
The lid propped open

This week all together now!
Week 5 all together!
Another Zomtober comes to a close.  It was pretty productive, although I didn't quiet hit my goal of finishing my Zombicide zombies off.  At least progress was made! 

I really enjoyed everyone's entries, they were quite inspiring.  Besides the painting, the background stories and mix of survivors and zombies gives great ideas.  If you haven't already seen the other blogs, check out the links from my page - there are some very excellent Zomtober entries out there!

  3. You've really upped your output mate! Despite the real life intrusion you've still painted more than most people manage and to a really high standard

    1. Painting with the block color and wash method is pretty fast and looks well enough for the zombie horde.

  4. As I remember it, your Zomtober target was fairly ambitious. Take credit for the amount that you *did* achieve, but keep painting the remaining miniatures as well :-) !

    1. I did set my goal pretty high, but I wanted to set a big goal. Like you said, I still managed to get a pretty good amount done. Thanks!

    1. The dumpster from the Bones line is great piece for urban environments. Hard to beat for the price as well. Thanks!
