Zomtober 2015 (Week 2)

Just one mini for this week, yet a theme for me for Zomtober 2015 is already emerging - this year looks like it will be Zombie kids! After painting last week's primary Zombie entry I dug out a few more Zombie child minis and settled on that as my focus.

The mini was fairly simple to paint although lacking obvious major injuries leading to Zombification, so I tried to paint his face as though that had been the main point of attack. Overall a pretty simple paint-job, although the yellow was a little bit of a struggle.

Although I have only painted two minis so far for my regular-Zombies horde, this is my fifth completed mini of the month with the other related stuff I have finished, and I hope to finish the month with a tally of between seven and ten painted minis in total, maybe slightly more if motivation permits. My best total in recent years has been ten minis in 2013, so if I match that I would be very happy. So far this month I have completed Xiao Loong for BMG, and two Tooth & Sword Shambling Zombies. I have also made some nice progress on a mini called Papa Zombie for Pulp City, so Zomtober impetus has certainly carried over!

  1. Like I need to see more creepy zombie kids before going to bed. Nice work, PC. With the yellow t-shirt, I would have been tempted to paint him as Charlie Brown. Of course, you would have then needed a beagle in flying helmet and scarf "survivor", although I'm not sure what he'd be armed with...

    1. Thanks Bullcher. The yellow will get a little more practice before I possibly turn my eye to a BMG mini that relies on yellow in November. :)

  5. That's a cracking colour scheme PulpCitizen. For such a tiny mini you've really painted an eye-catcher. Great work :-)

  6. Nice work Pulp, I suppose with Halloween just around the corner, he could get away with tricking for treats

      I think it is Studio Minis from the Tiny Terrors pack. :)

  8. I'm not the only one to be ever-so-slightly creeped out by zombie kids then.
    Great looking mini, and quite disurbing brushork.

  9. Great work in infusing so much creepiness into such a small miniature. It looks deceptively simple but I can appreciate the skill needed to pull this off. Nice one pulpcitizen.

  12. He may be diminutive in size, but with those bright colours you've painted so well he certainly will stand out on the tabletop.
    Nice work, once again
