Yes, it's Zomtober!
My first entry is a repurposed Reaper Bones Clay Golem. He was really simple to do, as he's almost naked and so pretty just needed my zombie skin recipe over the whole model.
For reference, this is a base coat of Kislev Flesh, wash with Biel-Tan Green, drybrush with Ushabti Bone and wash again with Agrax Earthshade. I then finish off the eyes (Ushabti Bone again) and liberally slop red paint and Blood For The Blood God about.
I suppose that I probably should have more blood on him given the state of his hands and mouth, but realism is never my biggest concern when it comes to zombies.
The only other painting that was needed was his loincloth, which, when painted blue have amusingly ended up looking like a pair of Daisy Dukes. In my head this is because this chap was bitten whilst at the gym or on Muscle Beach.
Aficionados of the blog will be aware that I have two zombie hordes, one for Mantic's Walking Dead game, the other for general use. The big guy is for the latter as the 7TV: Apocalypse box added more variety to a potential zombie movie cast, and so one of the things I want to do this month is add models to reflect this greater diversity.
If you are a blogger and want to take part in Zomtober, the rules are simple.
- Paint one Zombie or Survivor (or more!) each week, in any scale you like,
- Post pictures of your work posting it to your blog by that week's Sunday (that means if you want to join in this week you've got a day),
- It's also helpful to post a link to your blog in the comments of this post on Brummie's Wargaming Blog, as I think Simon is coordinating things this year,
- There are no prizes, just sharing motivation with like minded gamers trying to spread the zombie gaming virus.
Blogs currently taking part are:

So that's it for now, apart from the fact that 'Tiny' adds another one to my painted pile.
