Zombtober 2018: Week 3

One day late again. And only one Zed this week too, so that is something of a poor showing. In accordance with my 'military' theme for Zomtober this year it is another soldier who has been infected by the Zombie Contagion. This one has legs and torso from the Wargames Factory/Warlord Games  sprue, with arms and head from the Studio Miniatures zombie kit.

Zombtober 2018: Week 2

Sorry again for the tardiness. This time I was waiting for it to stop raining so I could get a good photo. It hasn't stopped yet, hence the some what crappy photos. 

These are two soldiers depicted in the weeks following the zombie apocalypses. They have ditched their military issue weaponry when they ran out of ammunition, and have opted for civilian weaponry, which is easier to find. They have added more pouches to their webbing as they are kept on the move by the ever present threat of the zombies. 

Hope you like them...

Zombtober 2018 Week 1

It's October again so you can expect the usual Zombtober festivity. As always the idea behind zombtober is to paint at least one zombie or zom-apoc survivor each week during October, publishing a picture on the Sunday. Now as it is Tuesday it is clear that I am already a bit behind, but this is because I have been away for the weekend.

I have finished painting two Zombtober models. My theme this week is military. I am using the Wargames Factory/Warlord Games plastic special forces figures as the base for my guys. My plan is to make three soldiers or national guardsmen in the normal pre-apocalypse uniforms, three in post-apocalypse kit with improvised weapons and perhaps more civilian equipment scavenged from gun stores and alike when the own supplies stared to run out, and three who have succumb to the Contagion and become zombies.

The figures are based on the Wargames Factory plastics, with Studio Miniatures plastic zombie parts and a few bits from the Wargames Factory zombie survivors sprue. These plastics all scale very well together.
