Zomtober Week 1

Been a busier week at work this week and not progress with my St Searles girls as much as I'd hoped. A bout of coughs colds and flu has dwindled the hobby time down bit by bit. I've managed to make good head way on the first six 'Fourth Formers' But only managed to get 3 out of the 6 fully finished.

These three are all from Hasslefree Miniatures. Alyx, Katie and Molotov Rose (This version of Rose was sold by Mantic years ago but is now back and sold by Hasslefree miniatures)

Having watched the remake of St Trinians I decided to paint up Alyx as an emo adding a splash of purple to her hair and then using a blue wash on her lips.

The two small ones Molotov Rose and I painted 5 years ago issue but felt the paintjob's where a bit dated. To be honest I don't think they have ever been in used in a game either from memory so I decided to strip them and paint them up in the same batch with the all the other St Searles girls.

  4. They may be small but there are large numbers of them. Hmm, I wonder if St Searles girls could "out horde" a zombie horde and take them down by weight of numbers? Little girls always seem to hunt in packs...
