It has been a great couple of weeks and the painting has gone really well. I have spent most evening at the painting table doing something and I have managed to get through a impressive load of models. I am conscious that the number of zombies required is quite high and therefore I started with them. Its like having a deal with yourself in that you only get to paint the Survivors if you crack out a load of zombies first.
This has always been my philosophy especially when painting 40k armies. I had to paint up some units first and then I would reward myself with a few characters. It is a good mindset I think. You get to try colour schemes on the basic models and then you are ready to do something better for the characters.
So I started Zomtober with 13 painted zombies and and the hoard is growing.
I have now painted both Abominations, a load of Walkers including some of the Very Infected People, some Fatties, some Toxic Walkers, some Toxic Fatties, the two Elsa's and Neema.
It has been enjoyable and the standard of my paining is improving little by little.
Next week should see some Runners, some Toxic Runners and needless to say the Survivors and their Zombivors.
Zomtober, we love ya :-).
