Zomtober 2013: Grinning Skull gets ready to share in Zomtober madness!

6 Oct

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

So, I’m taking part in the Zomtober festivities (see more details on Zomtober here  and here) In which all participants must paint up at least one survivor or zombie figure per week during the month. Whilst I think most of us taking part will be 28mm zombie gamers, for myself at least in our house, the apocolypse is firmly in the 15mm size!

To continue with my HO zombie hordes, I’d like to present my Zomtober entry, even bigger swarms of the dead!

As you can see, these swarm bases are made up from the very versatile model railway civilian figures in 1/87, easily available from ebay or model railway suppliers. (check out more HO hordes) There’s a “funny” story attached to me finishing these critters off, which involves my wife throwing away all of my basing materials (you know, static grasses, flocks, gravel, lichen etc etc) so I am a bit limited to basing options here! That is until she’s spent quite a bit of cash replacing all what she’s accidentally thrown out!

I’ll be using the larger horde bases to represent big fast moving deadlier swarms during gameplay, that’s why I only did three, which is more than enough, as now my undead horde for 15mm is extremely large, with loads more I haven’t even started yet (including the really nifty Old Glory pack I picked up a bit ago, what I will be painting next for next weeks zomtober entry!)
