Zomtober 2015!!!


Well its that time of year again Zomtober!!! Hard to believe that this year is the fourth! Yes the fourth Zomtober and the build up to of course the festive holiday Halloween! So why not get some zombies and survivor figures painted up and ready for gaming with!

  The rules
The Zomtober rules are simple. To take part you just need to paint one Zombie or Survivor (or more!) each week, in any scale you like, posting it to your blog by the Sunday (we use Sunday's as the end of each Zomtober week). So that means one or more minis each week on or before the 4th, 11th, 18th and 25th of October 2015.

Anyone commenting on this post will get added to the blog list below (and feel free to do something similar on your own blogs - as the word spreads, more and more bloggers can be involved!). We'll be sticking to blogs only this year it was a bit trickier adding in non bloggers from various forums etc.
