The target minis for Zomtober
Okay, being ever the sporadic painter and modeler  I have been challenged by my main gaming buddy Rob to get some stuff done.

To that end Rob has thrown down the Zomtober gauntlet: to paint at least one Zombie mini per week during October, and one bonus mini for a minimum of five in total. We have set each Sunday as the deadline for one mini per week (7th, 14th, 21st and 28th) and anytime before the 31st as the deadline for the bonus mini.

So the top picture has the minis I plan on finishing, and the bottom picture has those that I would love to finish in addition.

Other Zeds I'd like to get finished soon
We agreed that part-painted but unfinished minis could be allowed! We also plan to do something similar in other themes in occasional intervals.

I am still aiming to do my Zombies in groups of three tied together by a common colour (see here for a previous example). Let Zomtober commence! Well from tomorrow at any rate...


  1. Cool Zombtober sounds great. Look forward to seeing your progress

  2. What a great idea, a bit of mutual support to get some of those unfinished projects to fruition. Best of luck to you both.

    1. Rob's idea, but a great one!

      Now if we can get some more Zomtober momentum from other zed minis fans that would be great too!

  3. That is actually a great idea!

    I wish the both of you good luck on this challenge!!

  4. You've actually made me feel guilty now (thanks for that!), having not painted a single mini in over a fortnight.
    Zomtober it is then - good luck with your efforts.

    1. So is that another sign-up to Zomtomber? I am more than happy to link a post to Zombtober related blogs! :)

  5. What a perfect month for finishing zombies, eh?
    Sometimes it takes events like this to get the motivation.
