|"Winlett seriously ill. Medicaid needed urgently."|
This 28mm metal model by “Crooked Dice Game Design Studio” is one of two miniatures from the company's code SKU: Deal 87 Spawn and has been painted up as the first of my Krynoid plant-zombies for Zomtober 2015. The model was initially given an undercoat of “Vallejo” Heavy Grey before being haphazardly washed with “Citadel” Thrakka Green and “The Army Painter” Strong Tone Quickshade. Having finished this somewhat ‘mucky’ task I dry-brushed the carnivorous alien with more “Vallejo” Heavy Grey and then painted its ‘eyes’, bulges, crab-like claw and blisters using either Heavy Kakhi, Heavy Sienna, Heavy Brown or Heavy Red. All of these areas were treated to an appropriate “Citadel” coloured wash including Carroburg Crimson, before I applied a final dry-brush of “Vallejo” Heavy Grey.

Having used this figure as my test-piece, I have now started to paint up the remaining seven Spawn miniatures I want to use as ‘Walkers’ for a “Doctor Who And The Seeds of Doom” inspired game of “Zombicide” at the end of Zomtober. These models are at various stages of my painting process but should all be finished within the next seven days.

In the meantime, and in order to keep my sanity having ‘picked out’ little more than numerous ‘lumps, bumps and blobs’ this week with my paint brush, I have also based and undercoated some more wonderful miniatures by “Crooked Dice” which I paint during Zomtober. These figures will be used to represent the hapless scientist Arnold Keeler, the mercenary Scorby and the main villain of the piece Harrison Chase.
