The Dead Walk....Zomtober 2017 is Coming....

The dead lead (and resin and plastic!) shall walk again! Zomtober rises!

The sixth annual Zomtober is almost upon us - that time of year when bloggers like my buddies Rob (click here for his blog) and Simon (click for his blog here) and myself commit to getting some more Zeds or Survivors painted.

The rules
The Zomtober rules are simple.

To take part you just need to paint one Zombie or Survivor (or more!) each week, in any scale you like, posting it to your blog by that week's Sunday (we use Sunday's as the end of each Zomtober week). So that means posting one or more newly painted Zombie or Survivor minis each week on or before the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of October 2017. This year has a very tight start and there is nothing stopping bloggers starting that first mini early in readiness for the Sunday!

Anyone commenting on this post will get added to the blog list below (and feel free to do something similar on your own blogs - as the word spreads, more and more bloggers can be involved!). Last year we had around 15-20 bloggers involved, and it would be great to beat that this year. So welcome all to this year's Zomtober!

  5. This sounds great, count me in! Completely new to all things zombies, but just bought The Walking Dead All Out War Prelude To Woodberry set yesterday as well as the core set, which should be here in a week :) Definitely better at terrain but hopefully seeing everyone else's work will help to motivate getting my paint brush going!

  9. Oh, yes please! I've been looking forward to Zombtober ever since I first saw it as a "lurker" - being able to actually join in is one of the reasons I started blogging!
    If you can squeeze me in I'd love to take part this year :-)

  12. Just found a handful of zombies while looking for other things, so it would be rude to not take part. So you please add my name to the blog list of those taking part. Thank you.
