Zombtober 2014 - Week 1

Okay, so apparently I missed one of the rules of Zombtober...

You know, that rule about posting updates on a Sunday? Yeah, I missed that part, so I claim ignorane, which is bliss in this instance as I've simply been working away oblivious and enjoying every minute of it, and anyway, rules are there to be broken right?


So far I've re-based both of the Zombicide miniatures on 25mm round bases and added some milliput detailing and everything is now undercoated and ready to paint (George was already undercoated and painting had already begun).

It'll be nice to get back to painting on a white undercoat. I switched to white when I started painting my Studio Miniatures zombies for my All Things Zombies games, it was clear the miniatures on thier website were not painted on a black base-coat. However, recently, due to the darker base colours I've used with the majority of my Dust Tactics miniatures, I've steered clear of white in many instances and to be honest, I've missed it.

Time to get some paint on these guys!

  2. Looking forward to seeing how these turn out! I posted my first Zomtober update yesterday as, like you, I totally missed the start of it! So my post was more of a "this is what I plan to do" type of thing. Glad to see I'm not the only one!

    1. Thanks Chris, yup. I'm not going to be able to adhere to the post on Sundays anyway, so I'll be sticking to my Thursday posting for now. It's the spirit that counts methinks!

    2. Absolutely! I'm just enjoying the fact that it's motivated me to get painting figures I should really have looked at ages ago! If it goes well I might have to extend it into Zomvember....

  4. Does it really matter if you're a bit late with your updates? Of course not! As long as you're having fun just work at your own pace.

    1. I can only apologise for it taking so long to start getting some paint on the little fella Simon. Life gets in the way some time, so we just have to do what we can I guess!
