Well, I know I'm a bit early with this, so my apologies for that. But this is one of those situations where real life is ramping up the pressure (I have an assignment deadline and a job interview, both on Monday), and it just makes sense to get my Zomtober commitment out of the way early, to free up time for the other upcoming events.
The Khurasan zombie on the left looks rather ghoulish, doesn't he? The range is definitely growing on me. I just find some of the ragged clothing to be sculpted in a style that doesn't quite 'click' with me. But I love the sense of movement, and the character in the faces of the Khurasan zombies.
In the middle is a Rebel Miniatures zombie businessman, waving around his briefcase. I'm toying with the idea of a game in which this particular zombie would be an objective, as the survivors need something in his briefcase. Maybe it's research on a cure for the zombie virus? Maybe he has a key card for access to a resrticted part of a lab/office building? Maybe they just want his sandwiches? The great thing is that he will stand out in a crowd, despite his rather pedestrian attire, making that sort of scenario a good idea.
Finally, we have a skateboarder zombie (again from Rebel Minis). Painted myself into a corner with this chap, as apart from his degloved arm, there are no other signs of injury on the model. So in retrospect the red plaid shirt may have been a mistake, since I couldn't daub blood effects over it. Still, I think the white t-shirt makes up for that problem...
Well, Zomtober has been a blast! I will be doing an unofficial week 5 in order to get some survivors on the go. Thanks to Pulp Citizen for letting me play, and thanks to all of my fellow Zomtober participants: It's been great scooting around everyone's blogs and feasting on the rotten eye candy you've displayed. Looking forward to next years event!
Since I'm done (for the time being) with the undead, here's the group shot I promised. At my wife's request a shiny penny has been added to show the scale of the models.
See you next week!
