MORE ZOMBIES 2ND TRAY ZOMBICIDE SEASON 1. 1ST LINE COMPLETE.

Things are progressing slowly here at the bunker. I've even managed to paint some more zombies. But damn it's hot, spending a lot of time under a fan. Too sticky to sleep at night, so I always seem to be tired and cranky, instead of just cranky.

Reading a fair bit, but no zombie or post apocalypse stuff, just horror and sci-fi. Been listening to far too much Dr. Pus on Library of the Living Dead, crazy old fucker's quite addictive to paint to.

Anyway enough crap outta me, on with the introductions:

THE USUAL SUSPECTS.

Left to Right as usual: Firstly today we have Dyfan, a right little tearaway, ex member of a local gang. The Cwmbran Massive. Next in the spotlight is Meirion, he's an ex football hooligan. Following him  is Muryel a manageress of a shoe shop. Finally for this time we have Havgan a supermarket assisstant manager.

WHAT NO ARSE JOKES.

That's the first line finished out of four, ticking along quite nicely again now. It's almost time for the WNI(Wednesday Night Irregulars) to gather and once again save the world from the zombie menace, best go load the shotguns and sharpen the machetes.

Well that's all I got for now, until next time dudes and dudettes take a leaf out of the DUDE'S book and "take it easy".

  1. Bob, I was wondering do you do what I do with named characters and that is write their name on a self-adhesive label which I stick under the figure's base? This way, i can instantly see who the character is. Now you name all of your zombies. So how do you remember who is who?

    1. Not at the moment Bryan. It is something I should do, thanks for bringing it up.
      Where do you get sticky labels so small?
      I can't remember anyone's name at the best of times Dude.

    2. WH Smith sells them. 600 labels measuring 9mm by 15mm for just £1.09.

  3. Great Additions Bob! Name labels would be fun, I often end up just calling them names after the miniatures they are sold. Especially the Hasslefree ones make it far easier! The Otherworld Adventuerers I did probably took longer to name than it was to assemble and paint!

    Keep up the good work Bob your doing great with these guys!

  5. The zombie production line is once more underway, despite the grumbly cranky manager !
    I don't get naming figures, whether with stickers or painted on their bases, it's a bit like naming animals you intend to eat. With zombies you'll get to the point of "Here's Nigel again, ready to die - again".
    For me, it's the same with the humans too do you get to the stage where you can't use Mike, MIB #5 because he died in the last scenario ?

    1. Thanks Joe.
      Almost up to production speed, despite the manager vs union issues.
      The naming all started as a bit of fun, now it seems to have grown beyond my control.
      My default answer is it's Bryan's fault.

  7. Podcasts are certainly fantastic hobby fuel! Try 'We're Alive' on for size... although you might find yourself stopping painting just to hear what's going to happen next! :)

    1. Thanks Adam.
      Yeah, that one's really good, excellent production. I quite like Dr Pus's book readings though, he serialises some good books.

  9. Havgan is my favorite, naming your minis is very old school, but very cool.
