Get Sick Or Die Trying – Part 14

Today we’re going to tackle an experiment in amateur psychology. The premise is very simple; for the last couple of years I’ve been working away slowly at painting up a horde of poxwalkers with the aim being to complete 40 of them. At the most recent count I’ve finished 28 – and 28 sounds like its a long way from 40. Whereas 30 on the other hand is a much more pleasing result. Once I’ve painted 30 I’ll be three-quarters of the way there, I’ll be on the last leg (much like some of these zombies!), I’ll be counting down the last 10 with the finish line in sight.

Azazel also reminded me that it’s Zomtober, which would certainly make for a fine opportunity to paint some of my remaining zombies. That said, with a number of other projects also demanding my attention I’m going to be sensible and, unlike a zombie, not bite off more than I can chew (for the moment). Still, the end is at least on the horizon for my zombie horde so I’ll keep bashing on – only ten more to go now!

Get Sick Or Die Trying – Part 10

One of my goals for 2019 is to get all of my poxwalkers painted up. Having been included in the Dark Imperium box set and as a easy to build set, Games Workshop have been practically giving these away and as a side effect of this profusion, coupled with my tenancy towards bargain hunting, I’ve ended up with 40 of the shambling corpses, enough for a proper zombie apocalypse. I wasn’t entirely idle on this front in 2018 so with these latest two models finished we are now up to the halfway mark (and a full unit for 40k for those who like to keep up with these things).

Of course such a moment calls for a group shot.

My intention is to keep working on these over the next few weeks.¬†I know I’ve claimed on several previous occasions that more poxwalkers would sooner be forthcoming only to get sidetracked by other projects but this time I mean it (honest!).

Two more Poxwalkers come shambling forth. After slowing to an appropriately zombie-esque crawl with them over the last few months I seem to be picking up the pace with them at the moment – which is good news as there are still plenty more to do!

This poor chap’s been left with his head in his hands…

I’m not really a fan of the stock model for this next Poxwalker. With a few judicious tweaks I’ve made him acceptable to my eye but the original is just too over the top for my taste. Following my adjustments¬† I’m happy enough with him but I don’t think another based off the same model will be making its way into the horde. That said I did enjoy the chance to really go mad on the gore and slather on the Blood-for-the-Blood-God paint for once.

The dead just aren’t staying in their graves these days are they? Here’s two more Poxwalkers for the slowly gathering horde.

Two more shambling corpses emerge from the plague pit that is my painting desk (which is quite an accurate metaphor actually – the desk has been choked with bodies lately, littered with the severed limbs of feverish converting and – sadly – all too often the cheerless remnants of projects which have gone there to die). However as Nurgle knows such places are also home to the potential for bountiful life so it’s time to channel my inner necromancer and start resurrecting some models!

More zombies will be on their way, hopefully soon, but first I’ve got plans to turn my attention to Nurgle’s brother Tzeentch. Watch this space.


Get Sick Or Die Trying – Part 4

Lately my poxwalkers have been crying out for more attention (not strictly true – they’ve mostly just been making a low moaning that sounds a bit like the word “brains” over and over). The horde hasn’t been growing as quickly as I’d planned so I may try to rectify that soon by taking some time to just concentrate on zombies. In the meantime here’s two more for the slow-growing army of the undead.

Stirred by Nurgle’s fell influence the restless dead walk once more…

As ever I remain deeply opposed to painting a horde made up of pairs of matching models so I’ll be aiming to convert my Poxwalkers as far as possible so that the same model never appears twice. This one, for instance, is the twin of the first model I showed (way back in July).

I also threw in a set of easy-to-build Poxwalkers to bulk up the numbers.
