Zomtober Week 5. The end!

Only managed to get 3 survivors finished from the Walking Dead All Out War game this week. Have been busy painting......the kitchen LOL. So yeah not had much time this week as the other half is hosting a Jewellry party for a friend which originally was meant to be the week after but has been brought forward a week..

I did get the next 8 cleaned, based and primed. In the end I decided the textured GW paint was to expensive and use my normal Milliput method of basing. I have ran out of varnish so when I get some will be adding a bit of flock and some tufts to add a bit of greenery.

I decided to go for a brown bases being as most of the Walking Dead is set in rural areas and will fit in on my own post apoc board. I have some barricades done already and a few cars. I plan to pick up some tents from Renedra and have got some trees I need to base up as I prefer 3D terrain over the card stuff provided in the game. Mats i'm still not sure on yet. I need to put my thinking cap on about them. I'd love my own boards but then its always vs Time to so!

Sophia and Carol

Abraham currently the only version and was a Kickstarter exclusive but is currently available for Mantic Points.

These guys again but based, I have dirtied them up a bit and much happier with them now.



Whats next well more Walking Dead All out War figures. There are a lot more Survivors in the next row I am doing. We have Rick and Carl. Derek, Patrick and Sandra some Survivors from Woodbury or raiders I think that Rick and Co cross in the comics.  A guy called Leon who I am trailing back through the comics to find and 2 more zombies. So another 8 in total. I am hoping to have as many as I can finished by Christmas.


Thanks to all who participated this year there has been some awesome efforts by many of you all. Well done!

  2. Well done getting to the end of ZOmbtober, with these guys, they do look good.
    The choice of base colour to go for is always a compromise between ,aimly urban or rural types.

  7. Really great, that's a nice Zomtober! I share your same concerns about 3D boards, but still have to give a thought to mats. Ahhh, choices to make...

    1. Yeah I looked at the Deep Cut Studio ones at the last show I went to. Sure they look nice and all. But they're just feels like something is missing. But I can't quite place it.

  9. Great work Brum, on the subject of textured paint, I make mine for about £5 for about 3 or 4 jam jars worth of paint. Poundland is a terrific hobby resource for what you need.

    Brown (or whatever colour you want) acrylic paint
    Premixed filler
    PVA glue
    Fine sand (I use Chinchilla bath sand) I get it from the Range for about £2
    Distilled water (tap will do but gets a bit smelly after a while)

    2. Cheers dude. I am going to stick with milliput I think. Old habits die hard lol. Will try and remember to try that thought when making scenery.

  10. You're a bad, bad man. Again! (either that or I'm extremely open to subliminal advertising!). TWD game arrives at work next week ;)

    Some great work on those survivors and zombies this month. Looking forward to seeing the rest of them appear over the coming weeks!

    1. Cheers Terry. Sadly no I was on the fence and didn't have the funds really tbh. This is just most the wave 1 stuff with the mantic point extras in.

    Also, thanks to the organisers of Zomtober; it's a useful way of giving common purpose to a bunch of like-minded people.

  16. Sophia and Carol both have a good bright colors that will contrast nicely against the zombies. And nice work on Abraham too.
