Where have you gotten to Zombie Ad?

I have been meaning to write this post for about a week now, no, make that about a month, erm.. actually how about more than two?

In answer to a question posted by The Extraordinarii today:

"Where have you gotten to Zombie Ad?" The answer?... Life got in the way.

Life, you say, what have you been up to? In short, I...
  • Almost met my match with my new Outbreak City gaming table project
  • Ran a display/turned participation game with fellow blogger Colin, awesome stuff
  • Worked away from home for two months (for the interactive entertainment software industry's leading publisher). In one word, EPIC!
  • Battled the undead side by side with quite possibility the UK's leading expert and author on zombie survival - Sean T. Page from the Ministry of Zombies
  • Played some great new Euro games
  • Built a Dystopian Wars table commission
  • Finished (almost) a 40K Demon Army commission
  • Started a Malifaux Crew (Ressurectionists of course), just for me
  • Had my busiest month yet with Zombie Shop, it's a Halloween thing
  • and, to cap it all off - I started a collectable soldier and wargames figures company with my best friend JJD UK (We even sell 28mm Zombies of which I have my hands on some sets right now).

Like I said... life got in the way.

Life is at it's most exciting when you step up to the plate and say "I'll give that a go."

Blogging took a bit of a back-set so that I could spend what little time I had left with my family.

A very wise fellow blogger once said, try not to do too much otherwise you might face burnout. I'll pay a little more attention in future, thank you Bryan.

Without further ado my fellow zombie gamers... thank you for bearing with me, forthcoming posts include some of the stuff above and plenty of other bits and pieces I started but never quite got around to finishing.

Zombie Ad's back!


  1. Yay! I have missed your posts old chap.

    Will JJD UK be selling the 28mm Japanese buildings, or just the collector items?

  2. Welcome back friend, You've been missed!!! :)

  3. Aaah...They always return!!

    Welcome back mate

  4. OMG, I bought John's Terra Cotta zombies years ago when he was in HK. I always regretted not getting the hopping vampires, and now I have the chance! Cool! (and thanks)((and welcome back))

  5. Yay your back buddy ! you certainly have been busy... I think the chinese hoping vamps are cool, loved all those comedic kung fu chinese horror movies they were classics, I wish you well with your new endeavours and I look forward to seeing posts based on what you have been upto.

  6. Hey, it's great to have you back again, Adam! As for burnout - shudder! Try to avoid it if you can!

  10. What a welcome! Thank you so much guys.

    It has certainly been a thrill ride of a few months. Thank you all for the well-wishes.

    Shelldrake - Yes, we have the full range of the 28mm Japanese Buildings, click on the 28mm link on the bottom right of the Homepage. Check out Fran's (TAL) blog for the awesome paint jobs he's given his collection of the range.

    Ambassador - John is still in HK. we're selling his full range from the UK and have re-released the Terror Cotta Zombies range. Chinese Warring States to follow soon too.

    The Extraordinarii - Thank you sir. They have a lot of character and I think they'll make for an interesting themed game I have planned for them.

  11. Bryan is indeed a wise man. Great to see you return. If it ever becomes a chore its probably no longer fun.

  12. Hi, I came across your site and wasn’t able to get an email address to contact you. Would you please consider adding a link to my website on your page. Please email me.
