Zomtober 2019



 Crikey the end of the month seems to of crept up very quickly! Anyway next month is October and it wouldn't be the same without the annual Zomtober month.



The Rules:
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 that week's Sunday (we use Sunday's as the end of each Zomtober week). So that means posting one or more newly painted Zombie or Survivor minis each week on or before the 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th this year.

Myself I plan to catch up on some Walking Dead figures. I am going to aim first of all to get the 5 player characters and the NPC figure from the Mantic Here's Negan Board game. Anything extra wll be a bonus






As per usual we have a blog roll. Which I will update as the people join in.

  1. Good luck to all taking part, myself I have neither so I will watch and enjoy everyone else's, perfect timing to coincide with the next season of Walking Dead on TV

  2. Great stuff Simon, I have 'Here's Negan' as well and maybe seeing you get yours painted up will motivate me to get mine done - though I already have a pretty good idea of what I'd like to accomplish for the month so that would definity be a nice bonus. You can count me in and really looking forward to seeing everyone's work this month 😃

    Nonetheless, I'll try to join in on this (Poxwalkers count, don't they?) though, because batch painting they might end up all going up at once after the first week. :)

  13. I think this is going to be the first year, for ages that I won't be taking part. I have got some bits but I just don't think I have the time to juggle it with all my other projects. I have been playing zombicide pretty much every week for a little while though, so will post som epics in support!

    1. No worries buddy. I should be painting Burrows and Badgers stuff for a Games day end of October but just going to make a Warband out of what I have I think.

  14. Another Zomtober and another that I will not be partcipating in - I think 400+ zeds is more than enough.
    Good luck tthough to all those taking part and I to will be enjoying their respective outputs!

  15. Could you add me to the roll call please Simon?
    My blog's been "in stasis" for a while, and a bit of Zomtober action will be just the ticket to get it moving again! :-)

  16. Seeing as you've rudely assumed I'm taking part, it looks like I'll have to. I'll be making spurious claims about how a series of unconnected models are somehow zombie related. 😉

    1. I am sure you will manage it! Usually replying to a message that you will put your hand in for joining up is a sign that one is participating lol!

    2. That was in private. I've not publicly said anything, that means I can maintain plausible deniability.

  17. I’m in! Weirdly tried posting that a couple days ago but blogspot didn’t seem to like my iPad so fingers crossed this appears!

  19. I have four zombies left of the wretched, slow-as-bloody-engine-oil mob of 20 that I've been working on since like 2012. It seems that this is a perfect chance to at least make the attempt to finish them.

    In fact, I'm fairly certain I can finish up one for the deadline tomorrow. As chance would have it I had the painting itch and got quite a bit done on a rotter that I had abandoned to its fates about four months ago.
