Just another quick update on my ATZ preparations. The excuses I had for slow painting in my last blog update (no Dhenub Stone or washers upon which to base the miniatures) have both been rectified. I have six new Zeds to add to the horde. The pictures are a little darker than usual, but I was a little rushed, so I did not go back and retake.
The first trio is made up of the same sculpts, which is a risk you run when buying VF's zombie deal. I didn't mind so much as it is a pretty good sculpt, and its not like I would use them side by side in a game. Spread out on the board, one would not likely notice. In hindsight however, I probably should have taken the time to paint at least one with African flesh. Anyway, these are big, tough looking zombies with more than a few visible wounds. They are still quite intact however, and look among the more fearsome zeds in the VF group.
A bit more variety in this trio. They are a bit sloppier, and I blame some of that on the lousy spray paint I used for primer. It had a satin finish (I think) and paint did not adhere well to the mini at all. I really had to lay it on thick, which went a little less cleanly than I would have liked. But in the end, they are zombies, and I feel ok with a little dirtier paintjob, especially when I can just bloody up the worst areas.
Well that is 6 more down, and I will admit that my lead pile is getting quite small. I have a few more updates of VF zombies, but then I will be all out. I have placed an order for Sarissa buildings, so that will be my next project. And since I have some WorldWorks roads to print, I may not be too far off of getting a game in, which would be a nice change. Hopefully some battle reports would be of interest.
Anyway, until next time. Enjoy your weekend
