Zomtober 2013 (Week 3)

After the lead in of the Anima Tactics mini earlier, here is my intended entry for week 3 - another Zombie Clown.

This one is also by Tengu, and is one of a pair that have separate heads and arms to add variety. This is my 24th Zombie in total, and also the 49th mini I have painted this year. The Zombie horde (well horde is being generous, but what else can it be called?) started a couple of years back, and has so far only really featured in games of Pulp City, but I have been working up some ideas for a Zombie rule-set, so Zomtober has proven a productive period for me in more ways than one.

Aside from Zomtober, I began the year with the intention of painting at least 50 models after the paltry 24 completed by me in 2012. well I have now doubled 2012's total, and I am very close to achieving my my target with a couple of months to go. I am a slow painter who loses motivation quite easily, so I am pretty chuffed with my output so far. If I could hit 55-60 minis painted in 2013, that would be very cool. Assuming I hit my original goal, I may stretch the target in blocks of 5 and see how I progress.

I am pretty confident that barring disaster I will have a fourth and maybe fifth Zomtober mini completed by next Sunday. In addition, Rob and I have one of our annual battle reports lined up for the end of the week which will need to be turned around within four days...

  3. I think saw this guy at a haunted hayride the other night. He's scarier in 28mm than in real life. It's a very nice mini.

  6. Do so many clowns get turned into zombies because the shoes prevent them from running away, or do they just try to fight back with custard pies and buckets of confetti?

    Anyhow...really nice job. 24 is a decent number, I'll have about that many by the end of Zomtober and I figure that my zombie gaming can begin at outbreak stage.

    1. Thanks.

      I think you are right about the big shoes making them easier targets! if 20-odd is going to be the outbreak level, I do need to paint more!
