The first weekend of 'Zomtober 2016' has left little time to submit the first offering, but fortunately I had this rather splendid sculpt, from 'Hasslefree Miniatures'http://www.hfminis.co.uk, already prepared and base coated. Weeping Willow had been intended to be part of my 'Are you Lonesome tonight' vignette, another female zombie vying for the attention of my Elvis tribute act, Bubba. Although I ran out of time then, I was able to complete the job here to give me my first contribution to this madcap, monster month that we call 'Zomtober'.
Requiring almost nothing in the way of preparation, Willow was pinned on a 'Fenris Games' resin base, before resorting to a fairly familiar palette for her decaying skin. The mutated hands were given several thin washes of gore, which was later added to her feet having stumbled on some reference that suggested the sculpt may have been inspired by a witch character from the Left 4 Dead computer game franchise.
So week one safely negotiated and I have managed to get more done today than I had planned so I might be in a position for a sneaky midweek post, time will tell. In the interim do pop over to Leon's wonderful 'Eclectic Gentleman Tabletop Gamer' blog for a recap of the rules, such as they are, and a list of all the other likeminded souls that a trying to rid their workstations of shuffling hordes of undead lead and plastic.
