Zombtober 4

 I will admit that I am a little torn about this being the last Zombtober weekend or not. SO I may post one more if I get one done next weekend. Not that I have any started, but they are at least in the painting line.

Anyway another Zombie Wild West Gunfighter. Of them all I think this is my favourite sculpt. I like the lurching forward movement and for no other reason. And It is only as I type this that I realise the figure is left handed. Very sinister! Now I am wondering how many left handed figures I have and how many of those are zombies. Hmmmm! He fits in with the others and that's all that matters at this stage.

I have also included a group shot of what I have achieved in Zombtober! 1 survivor on a motorbike and 3 wild west zombie gunfighters. Not the biggest amount painted in a month for a project, but I have managed to do one every week which I feel happy about.

 The other thing I should mention is Dwarvember. I am in two minds about this I do have some 10mm dwarfs to paint, so I may get involved and I may not. As I do want to continue with current projects that I have enthusiasm for and not get side-tracked. I have some more Samurai on the paint table and some more PBI. Mentioning PBI I wasted a day thinking about a new army which did stem from a comment Mathyoo made. I realised that an Aerosan force on skis and some t-34's would look really cool. Then it dawned on my I don't think I would ever use it, nor could I find any 15mm WW2 Russian figures on skis! So eventually the idea faded!

Anyway I think this is Zombtober drawing to a close for me. As mentioned above I still have a couple more gunfighters to do so while the painting month is coming to an end the painting and project is not!


 That's it for today thanks for looking. Have a good weekend I hope the storm (St Jude) passes by without incident to you and yours. All the best and another update on Tuesday.

Post script: Re-working the waterfall on the TAR7AN board..... No you can't have a photograph just yet!

Cheers then, Clint

  2. Dwarvember I might actually consider, lots of 15mm dwarves to do still

    1. I do keep thinking I should do some 15mm HOTT fantasy, but never quite get round to it, as I know I would have to make at least 2 armies!

      Do it Tomsche.

  3. Nice job Clint. Yeah i'm not so sure about Dwarvember either now. Problem is my EotD Kickstarter is scheduled to arrive tomorrow!

    1. No Dwarf characters in EOTD then? Actually it would be good to see what the EOTD kickstarter stuff paints up like. Get some of that done, unless it will take you from your other "current" paintings!"

      Thank you Simon.

    1. Thank you Michael. With the New St. Searle's Girls out end of the week I think I will have to follow your lead and get some of them done.

  6. Look out - he's got a gun! Let's home that zombie gunslingers don't know how to aim (or at least, that they don't know how to reload :-) ).

    Do you suppose these 3 undead were mummified out in the desert somewhere, until the trail bike rider came along and disturbed them?

    1. I can see a Scooby do scenario with that exact plot line Colgar. Hmmm let me think... Great idea I must steal it sometime.

      I think reloading would be beyond zombies as we usually play them. I think it's very amussing that they have also managed to keep their hats on as a strong breeze is enough for me to loose mine!

    1. It is a great paint job, but now that you've mentioned it, not nearly as cool as 15mm aerosan army. Hmm.... :D

      Delete
    2. Yes a 15mm Aerosan company would look good. and be VERY cool (pun intended). But until I can find the right Russian ski troops I will pass. (But keep it in mind!)

      Thank you Mathyoo.

  9. Great zombie there Clint and I like the style of these Wild West Zombies.

    I have found this link on how to do waterfalls and it looks quite simple too.

    1. Thank you Peter. I am not changing the waterfall all that much, but it has moved very slightly. I will check the link, but I think this slight change will work.

  10. He's just crying out to be the star in a 'B'-zombie western movie.
    As for left-handers, I always thought that the Foundry Street violence range had an inordinate amount of them !

    1. Some B movies (Like Tremors) are brilliant. yes it does look like either a Scooby Do or B movie set up. Both of which do appeal to me.

      Thank you Jo.

    2. Trenors is not a 'B' movie !
