Just the briefest of posts this morning to showcase these photographs that I came across whilst tidying up at the weekend. This was one of those impulse purchases during the summer months, when one's focus was on all things zombie related. Sadly it is not eligible to be included in this year's painting challenge as it was started before the commencement date, but great to see it finally finished .
The ride on mower proved to be just that little too big to work comfortably with 28mm miniatures but the digger seemed to be just about spot on. It was given a simple base with some terrain details added for effect; plenty or rocks, broken pipes and discarded bricks.
Once all had dried, it was given a black undercoat, before I set about painting it up in a more familiar yellow livery. This is a lovely little model with a moveable bucket and arms and even after the repaint it has managed to retain this feature, giving it plenty of variety to the piece.
Finally a bit of weathering, branding and warning notices just to finish the model off before it was pressed into service by the girls of 'St. Trinians'; building barricades and ultimately proving an immovable force to hold back the shambling hordes.
