Zomtober 2016/3: A Boy and his Dog


I'm a day late and a dollar short this week with my Zomtober efforts. Two minis are in the works and should hopefully be completed in time for next Sunday.

The kid with the sling is from Reaper while the rude puppy is an OOP metal mini from Wyrd. Both sculpted by Paul Muller. The tufts of hair behind the ghoul-child's ears were added with green stuff to allow the red hair motif to be followed. My only option with the dog was to paint the tail red... we'll see how it goes.

    1. Wyrd specializes in weird. It's a shame their metals are no longer available. The Reaper mini is one of the relative few that Mr. Muller has sculpted for that company.

  3. Lovely stuff Finch. Those are a couple of disconcertingly odd-looking minis and your early colour scheme looks set to bring out all their weirdness :-)

    1. Agreed. Appropriately odd looking.

  4. Suitably nasty-looking...especially the boy's expression!

    1. Ya, the boy has a lopsided snarl thing going on. It was hard to tell what that was all about til I got some paint on him.

    1. Thank you, Simon. An initial attempt at a braid proved beyond my abilities. I like how this looks though.

    1. That makes two of us, sir. My Zomtober efforts really jumped off the rails this year.

  7. Have you painted the Flumph's yet?

    1. No flumphs yet, I fear. Considering how I fretted over whether I'd ever see them, they really should be made a priority.
