|Krynoid WIPs - These plant-zombies have all had their lumps and bumps 'coloured in'|
With ‘Zomtober 2015’ fast approaching its second weekend I’ve spent the majority of my time over the past few days plodding away on a horde of Spawn miniatures by “Crooked Dice Game Design Studio” so I have plenty of figures to represent the Krynoid from the 1976 British Science Fiction television serial “Doctor Who and the Seeds of Doom”. Although the models themselves haven’t been too difficult to paint as their sculpts are just great, these miniatures have proved somewhat tedious to finish on account of my plan to ‘pick out’ their seemingly never ending amount of blobs, lumps and bumps with a variety of greens, browns and a somewhat gory dark red.

Having now finished this stage of the process for the seven plant-zombies, and tidied up around the edges of several of the carnivorous creatures’ ‘eyes’ with more “Vallejo” Heavy Grey, I’ve now started applying a three-stage wash approach to each of the monsters. Not only have these inks helped blend in some of my ‘touch-ups’ but hopefully they’ll make these infected creatures look all the more gruesome prior to their final green dry-brush.

I have also started work on painting the pilot piece for the six Failed Experiment miniatures I plan to use as Runners (when I try to replicate the Timelord’s six-parter using the “Zombicide” rule set at the end of the month). This particular figure is of one of Harrison Chase’s estate security guards, who has been contaminated by the alien Krynoid and is ‘turning’ into one of the extra-terrestrial’s plant-zombies.
