Zomtober - Week 4

Here we are at the final week of the 2019 Zomtober event. For my finale, I did another of the Suvivor / Zombivore sets. 

Troy, the traveller

“What… you never seen a shotgun before?”
Troy has traveled far and wide. He has fought zombies and demons for years, even centuries if you believe him. Troy knows where they come from and what must be done to send them back to Hell. Most likely he’s seen one too many horror films, that’s all. Troy is probably mad. Or is he?

Of course based on Ash from the Evil Dead franchise...this one obviously before the loss of his hand, which we all know makes he become even more bad-ass!

In hindsight, the Zombivore would make a good Deadite version of him too!

Another great Zomtober for all those who participated. I got to see some other miniature lines I am unfamiliar with & it's great to see all the zombie fans out there!

However even though the event ends this weekend, I managed to get all of the survivor figures as well as a bunch more zombies primed, just in time it seems as the temps are now below 0 at the moment.

Zomtober - Week 3

For this week's post I did up a Survivor / Zombivore set.

So here we have Dave the Geek!

Direct from the Zombicide site for Dave's history.

So it was after I had finished everything up, got the photos edited for size etc, that I noticed an error....umm the decals don't quite match unless he is looking in a mirror! Ahh well, we will write that off to the Zombivore wearing his shirt inside out

For some reason the photos look shiny, though I can attest that he isn't.

So we have 1 more week of Zomtober, however with the weather changing, I have been getting as much of my "planned" stuff primed as I can before the snow flies & the temps plummet.

I have a couple options for the last week, perhaps a terrain piece? Another Survivor? & as always... there are lots more zombies!

Thanks for visiting.

While getting my Zomtober entry completed this week, I also managed to finish up a couple more pieces of the Timeworn Ruins.

So here I have the 2 braziers that came with the set. Again I thought about it & decided to not glue the flame pieces into the braziers. This way I could have them unlit.

As well I can use the fire pieces in a campfire base (yet to be built) for any game setting.

And of course set them into the braziers as originally designed for when they are lit.

The guys will be coming over for our next Frostgrave Campaign game this weekend, so I a busy getting the games table ready for that.

Bob's Halloween Themed Game

Tonight was our last club night of October, so Bob brought out a game using the Tribal rules & a Halloween Theme...sort of...  

There were spirits, Ghost Busters, Monsters & Arkham Asylum.

The game had 4 players. Batman, Penguin, Ghost Busters & Arkham Asylum. There were also some cultists attempting to summon monsters. They would continue to do so until removed.

In the centre sat Arkham Asylum. The Gates closed & groups of Assistants prowling the grounds.

We chose our factions. I took Batman, who also had a gang of shooter cops, Black Lightning & Katana. Black Lightning & the cops are heading for the cultists in the cemetary.

We had some monsters arrive on the first turn. Below, some of the guardians of Arkham meet with a rather tall fellow...he was not very nice.

Black Lightning spent the game dealing with numerous waves of summoned spirits.


Batman & Katana move to engage Dr Charlie Brown.

Alas, the caped crusader was not up to the task this eve. He did engage the Penguin, pummeling him down to just 1 hit point. Then Charlie Brown closed with Batman & took him out. 

Nice little game, with fairly simple mechanics..hardest part being to remember your abilities & what the different suits of the cards provide.

Thanks Bob for bringing it out!

Zomtober Week 2 - Zombies are Always Late

It's Thanksgiving Weekend here for us Canadians, so that compiled with a night out to see Evil Dead, the Musical, it ate into my planned time to get this post ready for Sunday Morning.

However here this week's Shamblers are.

Yep more of my many unpainted Zombicide figures, fitting I suppose as a new version is releasing on Kickstarter within the next couple weeks.

I painted the zombie to the right as a Pilot, which may be useful for any scenario's involving a plane escape.

I did manage to get a head start on my next week's entry, so should be on time for that one, unless of course Murphy get's involved.

Temple Ruins

As we have completed the first game of our Frostgrave Campaign Reboot, the warbands have now passed through the 2 gates. With that being said, reading the scenarios, the next couple take place amongst Temple Ruins.

So.... it was time for a Terrain Project.

Luckily GW had recently launched some wonderul terrain kits to help with this dilemma. The Shattered Temple

And the Timeworn Ruins.

The kit sort of leaned towards gluing the columns onto the platform base. Well being the way I am, I opted to glue some cardstock to the column bases & thus be able to add, remove as desired. Sticky Tack is a wonderous thing!

So here is the base. 

The columns, drawn from both kits.

 And the temple with columns set on the plinths.

Nice little kit & it will certainly fit the bill for part of the temple ruins. I have some other kits from the line that may also get built in the near future for our games.

Now its back to the Zomtober entry! Thanks for stopping by.

Zomtober - Week 1 - The Flailing Zombie

A very pathetic start to my Zomtober, however I needed a zombie that differed from the others I use for my Frostgrave Warband.

So here I found an old Citadel Lost Tribes metal miniature aptly called, FTZ-2 Zombie Attacking.

I still have a couple of these old 80's miniatures. However this is the only 1 I've recently repainted for Zomtober. One of the interesting things of this range, was that there were many variant's to each. Although the pose was static, there were numerous different heads!

Certainly by today's standards in miniatures, he shows his age, but a cool figure regardless. 

Heading back into my original Zombicide game for the next installment. I still have a great many unpainted figures from there & hope to get another of the heroes with his Zombivore variant done for next week.
