Black Cat Bases Scenery

Some great resin modern or PA scenery from Black Cat Games
a really great company with really cool stuff and perfect service.
We have some trashed couches and mattresses here. They are
fun to paint and as you can see I got a little carried away, I'm
not sure that a zed would even lay on these babies!

The Torn by Spinespur original figures

Edit: I have learned from Spinespur that these figs are
discontinued due to how thin they came out. The figures
listed on their site, shown on webstores and Vampifans blog
are the ones that are available now. So to see what you can
actually buy please check out these sites. IN essence what
you see here is a limited run. Some may be available
somewhere but that is something you will have to find out
if you want these three. My apologies for not noticing.
Some creatures from Spinespur that make nice half
skinned nude zombies. Bloody and horrifying they make
a nice addition to my collection. Nice sculpts that are fun
to paint. I used alot of drybrushing and washes. I started
out with watered down elf flesh, then a red wash, followed
by blue and black washes. I dryvrushed them witha light
gray and then white. Afterwards I added really bloody
spots, highlighted their guts and painted the eyes white.

Zombie Patients Painted

These are the same zombie patients I reviewed early,
finally painted. I am very happy with how easily they
paint up and how good they look afterwards. I am
encouraged to keep working on my 'hospital of the dead'
with all the good doctors, nurses and other hospital
staff and patients that are coming out now. There is
also a set of 4 Zombie Hospital Staff from
Recreational Conflict. You can find them all here;

The Zombie Freak


A most unusual fig from the Black Orc sculptors page.
I call him the zombie freak. He certainly isn't your
average zombie but thats okay. He can be an abberation,
a freak, something very different and much more
deadly than the common shambler or rager. Sure
hes funny looking but dont let that fool you, those
overlong arms and big teeth can finish you off
quicker than a horde of regular garden variety
zeds! I love these Black Orc open sculpt figures
and remember they are only a buck. I've earmarked
a few more figs they have for conversions. But that is
for another day. Today the zombie freak rules!

Zedversions

Well I'm up to 73 painted zombies on my way to 1,000. Getting to
1,000 means you grab up every zed you see and some you don't!
They are nearby in your bits box or odd miniature drawer...

This lovely lady zed started out as a beautiful resin
Fenryll miniature. Somehow its legs got broken off, also
her hand as she was gripping the base. She was a perfect
choice for a zed. Her outfit wasn't too fantasy to fit in
to the modern world. She was about to acquire the infection!
After gluing her to a 25mm base, I added some
wood filler to her broken off limbs, let it dry.
At that point she was ready to be primed and painted.
She won't be the fastest zombie on the table but she'll look good.

This guy was a Horrorclix clone. I thought he would make
a good zombie but when he got here I found out he had no
mouth. Fortunately he is soft plastic so a conversion would
take seconds. I sliced out a mouth hole with an exacto blade
and since he was pretty clean I added a lot of wood filler to
him and made him a bloody mess as some of your zeds
should be!
