Zomtober - Week 1

The plan for the week was to finish off all the minis from The Prelude To Woodbury Set.
The Governor, Brian Blake, was a fairly easy paint job. Whilst the mini is crisp enough for a good amount of detail, there is actually a limited amount of actual details. This is down to the simplicity of the images from the comics being easy to draw rather than a flaw in the figures.

It's difficult to put extra detail into some of the figures. When all you have to work with is a shirt and pants it is difficult to make the figure really shine. These are actually pretty nice figures and they have painted up pretty well.  The zombie having a snack was a bit more fun. When I first looked at the figure I thought the"snack" was actually handcuffs.
The three female figures look like they have come straight out of an office. Although this is quite normal clothing, it's difficult to make normal shine. A grey business suit is not going to stand out from the crowd. I always think the female miniatures need to be better colour coordinated than male ones.

Anyway, this is week one done. The New Cruelty is more than satisfied. Next week is going to see me paint the Days Gone Bye. More survivors and fewer zombies.

  1. That's a cracking start to the Zomtober challenge - and more from "The Walking Dead" to look forward to! :-)
    I've been tempted by the Prelude To Woodbury set because of the solo rules.... looking at those mini's you've set me off again!

    1. The rules are okay. There isn't much difference between the game and the solo rules. The new box set might be worth while.
