Here's my offerings for the second week of 'Zomtober 2013'. I've been a bit preoccupied this week, so I haven't managed as much as last time, but I'got something to show at least.
As I said in last weeks Zomtober Post, I am neither a 'zombie' gamer, nor do I have anything in the way of a backlog of living dead to get painted up....so I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel a little.
Anyway, without further adieu....
"Secretly preserved immediately after his 'death' in 1945, the remains of the Fuhrer were transported, by aeroplane, to the last of the secret German naval bases remaining operational in the eastern Baltic, before being transported once more, this time by submarine, to Buenos Aires.
As time took the lives of the last of the German escapees, the remains of the Fuhrer moved into private ownership - proving priceless on the black market to 'collectors' sympathetic towards certain political ideas.
It was not long before it passed into the hands of a man who's immorality nearly matched that the former Fuhrer himself, and an attempt at resurrection was made. The result was a monster."
A Zombie and a Baby
So this one is not a zombie, or is it?
Horror is generally all about context. Not every zombie has to be a blood soaked, arm failing loon to be scary. In fact their are so many of those knocking about that they really are not that scary at all. I think that the idea of a member of the living dead cradling a child to be kinda spooky, don't you?
This figure is from Black Cat bases. Its not the best sculpt in the world, but its got plenty of character and painted up nice and quick.
Or, at least, it'll add to the horde....
