Zomtober 2016 - post#2
'Zomtober 2016' is off to a flying start with some wonderful examples already posted across the many splendid blogs of my fellow contributors. Having progressed a little further along with my first post that I thought I would last weekend, I am now in the fortunate position of being able to submit a sneaky midweek post - how I spoil you! This, then, is a Zombicide Kickstarter exclusive V.I.P.*, a Princess Leia cosplayer.

Being somewhat of a Star Wars
geek devotee, this cracking little plastic miniature got bumped up the painting queue, but was a little more challenging than I had initially thought. Although the plastic was reassuringly firm, not too flexible, some of the detail seemed to be lost around the face. I couldn’t decide if this was intentional, as a wound, or just poor casting? In the end, some liberally applied gore helped to cover my uncertainty and the final result was pretty close to what I had hoped for.
With the Princess slowly shuffling off the table, chain clanking as she goes, I am hopeful that I will have a couple of survivors, again inspired by the silver screen, to join the fray at the weekend. Until then I just had to share this image by Joe Wight from the 'Graphic Lab'; not only a fabulous Return of the Jedi pun, but a timely reminder that The Walking Dead will return to our television screens on the 24th October here in the United Kingdom - Oh Lucille, what have you done?
