Tea at Granny's?


More from the wonderfully grotesque 'Studio Miniatures' pack that I have on the go.  This time Granny and Grandson take to the streets!  Once again they are great sculpts, but they did require a little bit of work to clean them up.


Nothing particularly original in the colour palette with inspiration coming mostly from the company's own website that said I'm pleased with how they turned out, especially when seen with the previous two 'shufflers' - just another fifteen to go!

  3. Looks like the grandson isn´t too keen about going round to granny´s for tea. Maybe the tins of cat food are a bit off putting .
    Nice paint Job. One Thing....has there ever been any Zombie children, in film or models?Children who have been zombified not one´s Born to Zombies, I could imagine the process of that would be very slow.. Would seem Logical but I can´t remember ever seeing any

    1. Episode 1 of series 1 "the Walking Dead" had a zombie child. Bryan AKA Vampifan would be the person to ask but alas he's poorly in hospital at the moment.

    2. Also Sophia in episode 7 or 8 of Series 2 of The Walking Dead.

      Great paint jobs by the way.

  5. Wonderfully gruesome Michael. You say these are nothing special, but I've liked at figures from people who've been painting zeds for years and they don't have the same sense of style that these have.

    1. That is incredibly generous of you Anne, they do make a wonderful distraction as each one has a separate personality so to speak as opposed to the massed ranks of redcoats.

  6. A Granny in "Ugg Boots!" Nice work. And a keen fashion statement as well. Nicely done mate they look suitably horrid, but in a good way.
