HORDE #5 BREAKING 200!

What's occurrin' then?

Zombtober felt a little short this year, with almost a full week left of the month after the final Sunday deadline. Although I've still been painting zombies and survivors, I thought that this was a prime opportunity to catch up with a horde progress report. I hope other participants also take full advantage of this "bonus" time.

The welcome wagon needs to be dragged out of the storage shed. It's been given a wash, oiling and has balloons and streamers added! Why? Well it's a special occasion, my 50th follower! So, as is usual, let's have a big BZA welcome for my latest follower Bullcher Feb. WELCOME BULLCHER! He runs the Waaagghhh! blog, go check it out, it's really good. Buckle up Bullcher this journey is going to take awhile yet!

Amongst all the excitement and stuff, we can't forget the cultural mission. You know the one by now! So with out further ado, I present another great piece by stayinwonderland. Again more of a landscape or panorama, I must say I'm enjoying the change. This picture is entitled Infected zombie RPG artwork #2. Enjoy!

INFECTED #2

My fifth horde update, yes it has been quite a while since the last one. That's down to me making and painting other things to try and get this game off and running. I think it's going to be a little while yet, I appreciate your patience.

I'd completely lost count of how many zombies I'd painted for this project. Well as the title says, I've broken the two hudred barrier. Two hundred and two to be exact. It's great to say that Zombtober helped immensely getting my over that milestone!

Anyway enough gabble, on with the pictures!

THE HORDE IN ALL IT'S GLORY. LOL.

So after taking the group shot, my official photographer then took a few close ups of different parts of the horde.

SOMEWHERE ON THE RIGHT.

Yes, that's an old Heroquest mummy. He was at a Fancy Dress Party on zed day!

SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE.

Below is a selection of crawlers, don't know how many I'll need but there's loads in Rue Morgue.

SOMEWHERE ALONG THE FRONT.

Although there's a lot of repeat sculpts, I hope for now that my different colour schemes are enough to provide diversity. My conversion skills are not the best so for now they will have to do.

SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE AGAIN.

So that's my close to Zombtober, the end of the month at least. It actually feels like I'm getting somewhere. I've so much more left to paint! Half the TCM Toxic zombies, all the Prison Outbreak zombies, Rue Morgue zombies, loads more VIP zombies and  over half the stuff that came as part of the Infected kickstarter box. That's not including the survivors and zombivors! Let's just say, I'll be painting zombies for a fair bit yet.

Wow man! Is TWD ramping it up or what, best season yet!?!

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

  1. Sweet horde dude, my paltry 50 odd is more a crowd by comparison. Still a way to go before you hit Vampifan levels of zombification though!

      We all have to start somewhere dude! It's taken me the best part of two years! A very long way to go before I get anywhere near Vampifan's meta-horde of zombie goodness.

  2. Brilliant stuff, the mighty 200! I've certainly got a long way to go before I reach that, but feel inspired to post a photograph later.

  4. Huge congrats on the milestone Bob, and that horde shot is worthy of being framed - so much to attract the eye and keep you looking. Terrific posting, with the "Heroquest" Mummy being my personal fave :-)

      I won't frame it yet, it's just a progress report. Lots more left to paint yet! That's the cool thing about horde shots, always lots to check out.
      There's a Heroquest zombie in there somewhere too!

  7. That's a horde worthy of the name, sir. Well done.

    "Infected zombie RPG artwork #2"? More like, "Tragic Kingdom". Superb art once again, Bob, title notwithstanding.

      The second hundred was the hardest!
      I think the title comes from an RPG he was doing the artwork for, but it is a bit of a mouthful!

  8. 202!!! You are truly worthy of the title Zombie Dude! I feel your painting of the zombicide figures has given you some variety Bob well done. This is the best artwork you've found yet IMO very atmospheric.

    1. Thanks Robert.
      Yeah, things are moving in the right direction! I am going to try some coversions, eventually, honest.
      I really like stayinwonderland's style, it certainly is very atmospheric.

      That's some seriously high praise dude! TWD has been excellent so far. You know in the comic Glen is already dead.

  11. Congrats on 202! That is a great horde, should be enough to keep you busy for a little while... Not enough German nihilists in it to be anything to be afraid of tho. :)

    Really, awesome job, keep on rolling on!

  13. A collection worthy enough to be called a horde and other than the "fatties" the other duplicsates don't really stand out - congratulations.

    1. Thanks Joe.
      Much appreciated, yeah them fatties are big dudes, a bit noticeable. I've plenty more to paint without buying anymore. Expect it to at least double in size!

      Got a bit more scenery to complete and start before I have enough for a game. Also need more cops, some military and gangers. Oh and some more vehicles. I expect it to be a little while yet, sorry, your patience is appreciated.
