Given that some people had expressed an interest in seeing the Horde I thought I could be lazy and not finish painting anything just this once. These two pictures are the same figures in the same positions (I did say it was a lazy Blog day). The top one has been cropped while the bottom one shows all the horde. Many people have a larger zombie Horde, but as a relatively new zombie wrangler this one , for the moment, is big enough for my needs. I do have two more Wargames Factory Zombie Sprues so I do anticipate the horde growing, possibly with a box of Vixens just for variety. In addition I do have a couple, only a very limited number, of special zombies. At the start of the campaign special zombies will not be encountered, indeed it is possible at this stage that they will not come into being as it will depend on the actions (or inaction's) of players in the pre campaign. This is not the time to talk about that though.
Back to the horde. As you can see everything painted in grey tomes. I was inspired by the Left 4 Dead computer game in my colour choice. I could so easily have drenched them in blood but have decided against that approach for now at least. I could add some brown (dried blood) or red (fresh blood later if I choose, but I have grown to like the very simple colours. None of them are painted well, if I am honest it takes me as long to assemble and undercoat them as it does to actually paint them. This lack of painting time is mostly because when I needed to get them done I had only 12 days to knock out 45, which I did. Since then I have actually grown to appreciate the hap hazard paint jobs, they have an atmosphere all of their own.
The background was the result of a quick goggle Image search using the words "Empty Street" and then scrolling down until I found one I felt suitable. I Did not want it so terribly dark, nor did I want many (if any) lights on. I am not suggesting people will worry about turning the lights of in a zombie apocalypse, I for one will have better things t do. But maybe power generation will be restricted!
The SELWG show is in two days time and I shall be going with the Posties Rejects thanks to Rays very kind offer. As I would normally post on this blog on that Sunday I shall most likely miss a post and post again on Tuesday. There are a number of items I want at the show, but no new projects and the haul of swag is most likely to be very uninspiring.
With that note I shall finish for today, thank you for reading (or looking at the pictures) wish you a very good weekend and post again on Tuesday. All the best Clint.
