Back for Zombtober: Back for Good!

You have, I am sure, noticed that I have not been blogging for almost a year. I won't dwell on the reasons why, but would prefer to be more positive and look forward now. My friends Leon and Simon have asked if I would participate in Zombtober 2017, and I said I would. Having something of a shortage of zombies on my work bench I decided to bend the rules of zombtober just a little and have chosen to paint up an undead warband for a 15mm Mordheim game I am making. This will include some zombies, but also some ghouls, a vampire, a necromancer and a few dregs (the Egor and Renfield type characters). I will also cobble together a few bits of 15mm Mordheim scenery that should give them the right feel. If funds and time permit I might get some more suitable minis later in the month and add them to the collection. 

This resumption of bloging will not be limited to Zombtober as I have a lot of other ideas for wargaming projects, and I will be showing them off soon, along with pictures of a few of the projects I have been working on slowly over the last twelve months. This will include more Sharp Practice figures, some more 15mm Warhammer, Home Guard for Operation Sealion, and some 3mm(!) scale WW2 stuff for Rommel. 

Without further preamble here is my first entry for Zombtober 2017 (a few days later than planned). These are 15mm figures from the Demonworld range by Ral Partha Europe (RPE)...

Excellent all round! :-)
Really great to have you blogging again, and a cracking post for the Zomtober challenge - something a bit different and brilliantly done.
Great stuff!
