This means posting at least one newly finished zombie or survivor each week on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd and 29th of October 2017, so the first job was to check the diary!
Apart from any short-notice gigs that might come in, it's certainly going to be a bit of a challenge, with 15 complete days "on the road" doing long distance runs as far apart as Lothian and Bournemouth, and we're gigging on 3 of the 5 Sundays - Phew!
The next task was to raid the pending pile and sort out some likely candidates for the painting table (and yes, I've already tidied my desk, so I can call it a painting table without too much embarrassment!)
I hope I won't be bending the rules too far, but as you may know from previous posts on the blog, I have zombies (and therefore "survivors") in three different campaigns....... ATZ:FFO zompocalypse, Dragon Rampant fantasy, and a work-in-progress Fear & Faith/ Witchfinder General / Flashing blades 17th Century mash-up project.
I'll be working on all three during the challenge, but to stay as true to the spirit of the challenge as possible, I'll attempt to make sure I include at least one zompoc mini each week!
Returning from the 'Back Bedroom Of Doom', here's my target haul:~
Some Warlord male zombies and bikers on unfinished sprues - zompoc
A dozen Mantic zombies - fantasy
Three Heresy zombies - two zompoc, one 17thC
Five Black Plague zombies - 17thC
and finally Warlord "Stickler Mitchell & Megan" - 17thC 'survivors'
Wedding anniversary today, so I anticipate losing a bit of "prep time", for the sake of matrimonial harmony!!
