Zomtober 2014 Week 1

Scraping in by the skin of teeth for this weeks deadline. Works been quite busy and I've been to knackered in the evenings to paint. Anyway things should be back on track and I've finished the first of the pack of Studio Miniatures Tiny Terrors that I won in a facebook competition. Returning from the Derby World Wargame show yesterday I have a few survivors that I hope to get done in Zomtober but I will concentrate on getting this pack completed first,

I will replace these pics tomorrow with my usual proper outdoor pics but for the deadlines sake I've taken some indoor pics in the best light possible for this time of night.




Anyway meet Kevin the zombie. Kevin has a few wounds the main one being his stomach and slight scratch to the head. Kevin has fed recently probably by jumping on some poor unsuspecting victim from under a bed or a cupboard or similar scenario :)

I'll drop some proper pics on the bottom of this post sometime tomorrow anyway Enjoy Zomtober guys theres been some awesome post so far by all those who joined in! Here is this weeks blog roll. If I've missed anyone off just drop me a comment :D

    1. Thanks it was just Cold Grey base, Army Painter Strong tone shade with fortress grey highlight then picked out eyes and teeth in white. Then add gore :)

  8. You certainly cut that one fine, but congrats on making the deadline. Zombie kids are creepy and we don't see enough of them. They are far more likely to die than adults but this is not reflected in figure numbers. Good paint job!

    1. Indeed! I only basecoated and shaded him yesterday morning. Went to a kids party for the afternoon got kids in bed and finished him last night!

  9. Clearly missed Zomtober myself (maybe next year) but that's a fine start from yourself. Nice little backstory too so I'll be getting the kids to check under their beds for Kevin tonight :-)

  10. Well done mate. I really like the nipper! (Pun intended).

    You have done well by not including me in the Zomtober roll of dishonour. Family illness has meant I have yet to get my act together. I shall try again next weekend. (fingers crossed)

    I know what you mean by rushing. You made it though, that's the main thing.
    New banner is the mutt's nuts!

  13. I think I hate zombie children the way most dislike cowns (zombie or otherwise), but you've got to like the paint-job you've done on this little chap.

    1. Yes they are very creepy indeed. I listened to the audio book of As the World Dies: The First Days by Rhiannon Frater and the start of that just gives me chills
