Four and Change


Where the heck did Summer go? More to the point, why does that countdown clock in the margin show only four plus days until Zomtober? That can't be right, can it?

It can and it is. Zomtober '15 is upon us.

For the full scoop, check out Pulpcitizen's post HERE. (Also the source of the banner at the top.)

I've got five minis under construction as we speak. More ghouls than zombies but hopefully still in keeping with the spirit of things. Removing the broccoli-bases from the Reaper offerings took some doing but everybody's now ready to move forward.


On the Fractured dimensions front, Dispater is done save for the varnish and mounting to the base. My problems with brush-on matte varnish persist, otherwise he'd be finished.

The next FD minis on the table are the larvae. I'll see if I can push forward with them along with the Zomtober ghouls.



There's also a rather bizarre conversion project in the works that ties in with the larvae but that stays under wraps for the moment.

  1. Looking forward to your entries enormously Finch, and those ghouls look very good choices indeed. Always enjoy your inspirational WIPs as well, so hopefully they'll be a few of these along the way as well :-)

  2. I love the larvae! They're right out of the 1st ed. Monster Manual.

    1. Should be straightforward. Each is basically just a head on a worm.

  4. Like you I can't believe that we are on the brink of another Zomtober, let the ghoulish fun begin.

  7. I'd love some of the FD stuff but it does not appear to be on sale anywhere? Might just join in Zomtober myself.

  8. Humbrol Matt Varnish is the best matt varnish I've found. Second best is Jo Sonja's Satin Varnish, which is less shiny than the matt varnish, although that could just be a odd pot. I'm not sure how the Humbrol stuff goes through the airbrush, but the Jo Sonja's stuff works a treat when diluted with a bit of windex.

    I look forward to seeing the ghouls painted.

  10. That larvae looks super weird. They are creeping me out big time. Ewww .... ewww again. That being said I'm still curious as to what you plan for them.

    1. They are creepy. The plan calls for yellow, but that's only tentative.
