DE(AD)CEMBER WEEK # 2

What's occurrin' then.

Wow man, this year has flown by!  Eleven days until Crimbo, it feels like five minutes ago I was telling you all what pressies I got last year. Well the zombie painting has continued again this week. It was a lot harder resisting the call of the wasteland this week too, but now my son has finished for Xmas I doubt I'll get a look in until the new year.

Our cultural mission also continues with another excellent example of Savage Zombie's work. He's done quite a few zombie Santas, luckily for me. So the festive theme continues. This wonderful piece is called Xmas Card 2006. Enjoy!

XMAS CARD 2006.

So even though the call of the wasteland was strong this week, this post is late. I managed to get a few zombies painted. Five of the little blighters! Left to right are a season one walker, season two walker, season three VIP, seaon two Berserker walker and a seaon two Berserker fatty.

FIVE MORE SHAMBLERS FOR THE HORDE.
Introductions are in order, again from L to R. First  under the spotlight is Beinon, a rather infamous scrap dealer before reanimating as a shambling flesh eater. Next up is Huw, an unemployed actor. Bit of a career change then! Following him is another former law enforcement agent, Officer Dalton was on the frontline the day of THE EVENT. My undead police will soon outnumber my rather small sherriff's department. Moving along we have my first Berserker, Anir was a inmate at the state pen, I think the bright orange overalls kind of give that away. Lug came from the same prison.

YOU KNOW THE JOKE NOW. FROM THE BACK.
The first present I've given myself is, to re-read my '68 graphic novels. Should get me in the festive spirit, lovely! Come to think of it a rewatch of some zombie movies will be my second. Now we're talking!

I guess that's all I got for this time dudes and dudettes, so until next time try your best to follow the path of THE DUDE. And "take it easy".

  2. Great painting Bob. Your Bezerker fatty is just stunning... cracking mini and terrific painting too. They're all good tbh. but that fatty is outstanding imho. You enjoy those '68 my friend. I've picked up another run of them which I hope to look at in the New year - if I can stomach them ;-)

  6. Great work on your latest batch of zombies, Bob. The Fatty really does stand out. I'm pleased to see what you're reading. '68 is a bloody good read. I'm looking forward to volume 5 being released in February.

      Much appreciated Dude! '68 is definitely a "bloody" good read. Fingers crossed, I've dropped massive hints that volume 4 would make a great xmas present.

  8. Xmas is now 8 days away... That means my son turns 11 in 6. Yikes.

    New additions mix in well mate. The inmates are especially lovely with their nasty green growths.

    Did you get in on the Zombicide Black Plague Kickstarter?

      I don't think I'd like an Xmas birthday, always tough going up against Jesus! The nasty green growths are what makes them bulletproof, gotta take 'em down in hand to hand.
      No didn't bother with Black Plague, wanted to keep it modern.
