That really is an impressive horde of shambling death. Nice work!

Thanks v much, all - They aren't much to look at close-up, but effective enough in a gang, and certainly more menacing than the grey plastic horde they were before

I've made a start on the survivors now - I am trying to take a little more care on these (though still Contrast and a quick job), and also trying to use the colours from their cards wherever possible.

Here are the first 6:

Thanks, everyone! I went away last weekend, and when I came back the impetus/mojo had gone... Hopefully I will resume painting soon

You sound like Austin Powers, "I've lost my mojo!" Don't worry buddy, it's natural and often good to take a break, don't feel pressured to get back to it and just let it flow.

The break did me good - Had a paint n chat on Skype, and it rejigged my mojo enough to finish all the things I had WIP, at least...

Here are some doggies to accompany the survivors into the Z-infested ruins of society. Aren't they cute?

Great job on all of these. Love that they match the card art.

It's really satisfying to see a huge set of boardgame minis getting finished.

Thanks, Duggee! Henceforth I shall read all your posts in Alexander Armstrong's voice

Thanks to the magic of Contrast paints, my rapid progress continues, and I have got the first 4 Blood Bowl players done:

Thanks! There are still loads of Zombicide Survivors left, and the special KS abominations, but I think at this point I have way more than I will ever use anyway, so I reckon I am calling Zombicide "done"

I like your Blood Bowl team so far. I hope you have people to play with. I haven't really started on my Blood Bowl teams, because I haven't found people to play with.

Thanks! One of my regular gaming buddies is very into BB, so I said I would play against him, but as he goes to tournaments etc, I expect to be crushed utterly

Got the beastmen done - Just the Minotaur to go!

They look cracking, did you do the slotta base method for your line markings?

This sounds like something I might be finding out about too late I just used sloppy white paint over my static grass, to try and get the right look...

Ah! Yeah just paint the stripe through a slotta gap. Good for road markings too

Another good tip I will squirrel away for future use, thanks

My Blood Bowl team is now complete! Nothing too fancy, but it will look a whole lot better on the pitch than bare grey plastic





Next up will be some more Genestealers as I try to get Space Hulk finished off too!

Cheers! Just got to actually find time to meet up and play

Here are 10 more Space Hulk Genestealers, so getting very close to ticking that off the list of shame as well!

Wow, that's a very impressive tally for the year. I'm at 85 personally (which I think is higher than I managed in the past three years). Keep up the great progress, and nice work on the genestealers.

The minotaur makes me hungry for a steak , which means you did a good job on him.

A whole grey chaos team The Grey Wasters , now I just need to find an opponent and my grey plastic team can have a name and theme. Chop up some sprue into rubble from their home soil and jobs a good'un.
