I’ve been painting orcs like a fiend for days now and I need a little break just to keep myself fresh. As it happens October is not only known around these parts as Orctober, it’s also referred to by some people as Zomtober (that being “the month to paint zombies”). With shambling corpses popping up on a few blogs I follow I started to get inspired by the idea of mustering a few myself.
Zombies are very much the quick and dirty junk food of painting for me, perfect for a low pressure change of pace without getting bogged down in anything fancy that might distract me from the Orks I’m supposed to be concentrating on. The first of these was built straight out of the box, the other two have been tweaked a little. The third has the head of a Blood Bowl player – perfect for Halloween!
Right – distraction over, time to focus exclusively on all things green and mean until the end of the month!
