Zedvember 2015/1: Ghoul Power


* Zedvember being a chance to complete some not-quite-done undead...  the brainchild of Bob Kinnear at BZA Bob's Zombie Apocalypse in 28mm and Chris Hird at Chris's Miniature Woes.

By my estimation, the first installment of Zedvember equals the sixth of Zomtober. Loose ends have been tied and hatches battened, t's crossed and i's dotted. Translation: the red-ghouls are done. Many pictures to follow.

The whole red-ghoul pack is pictured up top. The last member completed was the boss, a Reaper miniature featuring the world's largest meat-tenderizing hammer and a lovely belt ensemble made of flayed skin, severed heads, and assorted viscera. Yum:





The ghoul-hag is, at long last, truly done:





 The boss with the hag & with the original Fractured Dimensions perribos:



The grunt-level ghouls by Otherworld as well as a side-by-side comparison with one of the same minis painted some years ago:



I've said it before, I'll say it again: Paul Muller can do no wrong. The sculptor did an especially good job on all the faces. Some yearbook photos to illustrate the point:



One final piece of good news: anyone wishing to get some perribos of their own is in luck. Fractured Dimensions miniatures are now available through Mortal Arrow. More on this next time.

  1. A simply mind-blowing posting Finch. Those miniatures are as well-painted are their subject matter is hideous - and they are truly terrifying I assure you :-) Stunning painting. Just stunning. I'd be scared to death to just touch them after all the obvious effort you've put into them. Certainly my favourite posting of yours to date by a long way.

    1. Thank you kindly, good sir. I'm a reformed gamer so these were painted just for the enjoyment of it and afterwards display.

    1. Thank you, Atom. I'd given the "pink with red hair" scheme a test-drive with the two Fractured Dimensions' miniatures previously.

    1. Thank you so much, Ana. At some point I should use some of your outstanding graveyard terrain ideas to give these guys appropriate set-dressing.
