ZOMBICIDE SEASON 1 BATCH 3. BIG THANKS. ANOTHER WELCOME.

Before when stumble on, I would like to thank all of you. It has been brought to my attention that BZA has clocked up over three thousand page views. I think this zblog(remember I made that up) would have died off if it
weren't for you guys out there. Once again thank you one and all.

Those of you who comment deserve a special THANKS, as they really inspire me to do things that I'd normally be too lazy to get around to. But seriously, thanks for making me welcome.
On another point altogether, I've just joined Board of the Living Dead, a zombie wargaming forum. Still looking around it but what I've seen so far is really cool, and they too are a friendly bunch.

Doh! Nearly forgot. A big BZA WELCOME to Robert Audin my latest Google+ follower, he runs the Fiends in Waistcoats blog. Check it out, it's very nice.

Right, enough drivel from me, on with the identity parade. This is my first attempt at racial diversity ever, so be gentle with me.

FOUR MORE SHUFFLE IN TO JOIN THE HORDE.

USUAL BACK SHOT. DOH! NOW I SEE THE TOUCH UPS I MISSED.


From Left to Right: Tonight's first contestant is Aidan, walker zombie in a vest. Next all suited up is Dylan, with his nametag he could be a politician.(BOO! HISS!) Another walker. Moving along to the big fella in prison garb, names Hefin. A Fatty. Finally we have mobile phone salesman Arwel. Yet another walker
Like I said first go at non-caucasion flesh colour. I used old GW Dark Flesh as a basecoat, a light overbrush of old GW Terracotta mixed 50/50 with old GW Fortress Grey and final wash with old GW Devlan Mud.

In other news, caught a movie the other night called Frankenstein's Army, a found footage horror. It takes place toward the end of World War 2, Russian soldiers pushing into eastern Germany stumble across a secret Nazi lab. One that has unearthed and began experimenting with the journal of one Dr. Viktor Frankenstein. The scientists have used the legendary Frankenstein's work to assemble an army of super-soldiers, stitched together from the body parts of their fallen comrades. A desperate Hitler's last ghastly ploy to escape defeat?
This is an intersting twist on the old Nazi zombie mythos.
Well worth a look, I've seen a lot worse.

I gotta get back to it, these zombies won't paint themselves.
Until next time dudes and dudettes do what the DUDE does and "take it easy".

  1. Giving identically posed figures a different colour scheme is a common tactic of mine to help give them some diversity. With so many identical poses with the Zombicide figures it is a very good idea. They look great, Bob. Oh, and congrats on finally joining the BotLL. We are all friends here.

    1. Thanks Bryan.
      Diversity is a good thing.(Not just a dance group)
      With this many identical poses I'm tempted to start snipping bits off.
      Cheers for the welcome to the BotLL.

  3. Good looking bunch again Bob, I wouldn'tworry too much about what others think though, if you're happy with them.
    I've seen the film you mentioned, but wasn't particularly impressed, it's one of those that I'd watch if there was nothing else but wouldn't go out of my way to catch it.
    I'll catch you over on the BotLL when I make one of my rare visits.

    1. Thanks Joe.
      I'm not 100% happy with them, the skins a little too reddish and the gore doesn't stand out from it enough for me.

      I liked it, thought it was a different take and some of the "monsters" were pretty cool.

      See you onBotLL.

  4. Nice work Bob, I like that you've decided to give some different skin tones a try - a diversity is always helpful.

    And cheers for the movie suggestion, sounds like a ridiculous idea - perfect for WW2 inspiration :P

    1. Thanks Mathyoo.
      I think the monotony of one skin colour for 60+ zombies would have driven me nuts.

      Yes, pretty good movie, it's perfect wierd world war fodder.
