Vampire Counts: Zombies (Part 3)

Wow - I didn't realise it was March when I last produced anything for this army.

Anyway - in a mad burst of activity, I've blasted through all my remaining Zombies which I'll present in three posts; this one, the remaining models, and the whole lot as a horde.

I've loved working on these models, which was unexpected.

There were two things that put me off:

  1. The sheer quantity of models required to build a Horde; I've not based these in the regular "one per 20mm base" method; I've included a lot of 40mm bases which have either two or three zombies plus a gravestone or two. This looks, I think, quite atmospheric and stretches the number of models out (in this last batch, I've based enough models to represent 47 Zombies using only 33 models).
  2. Looking at the painted examples in the Vampire Counts rulebook, I've never been too taken with them. I always thought they looked a bit "Scooby-Doo", if that makes sense. Cartooney and sanitised for younger players.

So I wasn't really expecting to enjoy the process of churning out (all told) about enough bases to represent 100 models.

I was wrong - I loved it.
