Zomtober Week 4 Zombies at last!

Didn't all go to plan this week, Had hope to get Abraham, Sophia and Carol finished also but not got them to a point where I am happy just yet. The bases aren't finished on these yet I am planning on getting some the GW Texture paints and having a play but it will have to wait until payday. Eventually the bases will have some sort of texture with grass and tufts added. The base rims will probably be done in black.

The game is pretty cool I am enjoying it a lot. I've also been catching up with the comics to the point where I am upto date with the tv series. (Well nearly just meeting Ezekiel in the comics).  Its nice to see how spot on the likenesses are to some of the characters visually as well as the events unfolding/tweaked between the two.

I think moving forward from Zomtober going to try and get a survivor and two zombies a week done time being available. Hopefully I well get the 3 Survivors done and get some others started for next weeks final post.

  1. Excellent work mate. :)

    6 Zombies is not to be sniffed at, even if you didn't get the Survivors done. Good stuff and well done. :)

    1. It really is a great game. The main rules will switch things up a bit I think as there seems to be some character classes that can change things up. Certainly worth getting a demo if you can.

  3. Looking good, Simon. "TWD" minis look awesome imho, just wish I had the time to sit and start painting them. Keep up the good work - just one more Zomtober posting to go!

    1. Cheers I am enjoying the sculpting style of them the figures are perhaps a little more fiddlier to remove moldlines from them due to the material but I am going to invest in some new tools as the ones I have are getting on a bit now.

    1. Cheers Joe. Yeah I am not keen on the ultra gore either. Much prefer the darker blood as well. I think I made a mistake with doing red shirts but never mind will correct that on future zombies of which I have plenty to do.

  15. Excellent stuff Simon, they have quite the facial expressions! So all those Zombies are from the Mantic Walking Dead game? I put my set away so I can stay focused on finishing my Zombicide core game for now.

    1. Thanks Terry, Yes indeed these are from the Walking dead game. I have a few duplicates I think but only one so hope to plow through these and get this box finished by Christmas.

  16. Even at this unfinished stage they are looking good. And the figurines do look well sculpted.
