Zomtober 2016 Week 1 Entry Aysha and Nisha

Managed to get two survivors finished for the first entry these had long loitered on the paint table whilst I wondered what to do with the Aysha's cloak. In the end I have decided to just paint it in a random Urban camo scheme based on nothing in particular. Its been good to get them finally done and two more figures off of the table. Now to decide on who to paint next for week 2!

Both these character join Crimson in Across the Dead Earth as Mercenaries for hire and have there own special rules. They are both lovely sculpts done by the talented Ian Mountain. These are the last two Across the Dead Earth figures painted and complete the whole collection, The only figure I haven't got is Version 1 of Drexyl who is only given out very rarely.

  2. Very nice work Simon, I wasn't sure if anyone else was going to do Zomtober this year as I've not seen any mention of it anywhere. I'll add a link to your site on mine next week.

    Cheers Roger.

  3. Great start to Zomtober 2016 Simon. Lovely work on the pair of them. I am a big fan of Ian Mountain's sculpts from the "Crooked Dice" range, and you've undoubtedly done it justice.

  14. Nice looking models. Sometimes the best thing is to just finish them!

    I know I've delayed many projects through indecision about how to proceed when all it takes is the realisation that one choice is as good as another.

  17. Simon, can you add me to the Zomtober list? Missed week 1 as I was finishing off some Z friendly terrain and I though the painting was to take place in October so assumed the first showcase was the 2nd Sunday :( All the excuses under the sun barring the dog eating it!
