Zomtober Entry no 2

This weeks entry is another survivor. Very kindly given to me by Darkoath from http://darkoathdeadlead.blogspot.co.uk/ who having read of my search for the OOP Griffin miniatures survivors kindly contacted me to send me this fella a VERY BIG THANK YOU it show how great a community we have amongst the bloggers.

Very chuffed to have been given him I now have three out of the five survivor figures.

The axe was a little bit damaged which has caused me to delay painting him as I really wasn't sure how to go about repairing it. Zombtober has helped me to get on with it and I've now fixed it by adding a ball of putty and filing it down into roughly the right shape and I got him painted so a double bonus! He'll be useful for 7ombietv as most characters have melee weapons.

Also Carl has hit the 25'000 hit mark and is having a giveaway! Go check out his blog. I love his blood bowl reports!


Really must apologise this week the weather has been cack all week and besides taking photos 3 times since finishing him on Thursday these are the best i've got :(



EDIT: Brightened up a bit so retook the photos (Slightly better but miss my outdoor pics)

  2. Ooh, nice! I particularly like the contrast of red braces against white vest - very effective. Mind you, he looks too clean to have seen much action :-) ...

    1. Thanks Robert. I'd like to think his workwear added a bit of protection as well.

  17. Great stuff there Simon and nice paintjob too. But I am missing off the blog roll ;(, lol

  18. Love it! That model just oozes attitude, and the painting pops despite the lighting woes.

    Props for the repair work to the axe, by the way - I wouldn't have been able to tell it was damaged originally.

  19. Looks good, and that fire ace will come in handy!

  20. Like the paint job and a cool interesting mini

  21. Nice. I was lucky to get a set of masters from the sculptor years ago and the full set from Mark at griffin directly when they were finally released. All the zombies are painted and in my LAF urban zed thread. Still got the survivors to paint so nice to see your take on the fireman.

    Cheers

    1. Thanks CV. Yeah just need to get the Goth chick and the Female cop :D

      Its a shame they disappeared. I was hoping they would return as the store is still open just with nothing in it :(

      Delete
  22. Nice figure and nice painting. Whatever work you did on the axe worked out well: nothing looks obviously patched up to me.

    More survivors next or is it time for some walking corpses?

    1. Thanks very much. I have no zombies to paint right now. I was hoping my EotD stuff would arrive as there will be some in that but its not due yet. I have 2 survivors to repaint but can't find the motivation to paint them.
