Following a CHIPS related ramble on LAF here is my inspirational photo of Heather Locklear. Now if that doesnt make you want to paint zombies then man, you have a problem....
(Or maybe its me that has a problem...)

Today I did this!


This is a few of the rubbery weeping angels given away with this weeks Dr Who adventures magazine.Apart from the silly short arm I think they look ok. 5min paintjob of a greygreen base, fortress drybrush and a black wash.
They should do well for wargaming and the weeping figure, if painted with some care is actualy very nice indeed.
Thats yer authentic Javis grass there on the bases.

JD from scrubs. Could have painted this much better if I had not been rushing..
"What the *u%k are you looking at?" He seems to say....

One follower!

Yeehah! I have a follower. No longer am I talking to myself!
                                                   This is a momentous occasion like ^.

Videos to watch before you resurrect...

This is also worth a watch.
I love it when people get all interlektuall about zombies.
What does that say about me?

I think I may need help.
Neurosciece for zed heads!

In an attempt to entertain myself whilst painting AND sort of study at the same time......

Cant recommend this guy enough.
Any friend of George......

Sunday...paint or write essay?

I have a post grad essay to write. I also have zombies and an 11th doctor to paint.......
Painting wins. Heres my rambling reason.

Im doing a psychotherapy essay, this involves introspection and self discovery along with a load of other wooly science mumbo jumbo.
I feel that in order to deliver the best darndest piece of work that I can I should meditate first.
With me so far?
Painting, to my mind, is zen.
Complete relaxation married with complete concentration.
Simultaneously fill and empty your mind.
Mine was nice and empty to begin with (I had a clear up in August and last week I marinated it in cider, budweiser and aftershock just to get it nice and sterile) so im off to a good start.

I believe that a day of slapping paint onto little men (or little wimmin(equal opportunity zombie horde)) will expand my consciousness and liberate my thoughts making me a more rounded, stable and interesting humanoid.
Thus by painting I AM studying and exploring the deepest recesses of my psyche!

Any thoughts?
 And a few of my oldies including some of the excellent Westwind Nazi zombies and of course older Studio stuff.
I plan to take pics of the horde as it grows so maybe a group shot would be in order so as I can watch it expand on a (hopefully) weekly basis.

As long as I dont get too badly sidetracked by Dr Who or somesuch....

 Did I mention that I adore Studio sculpts?

I did?


Well, in my honest opinion they are the best range of undead available. Wish I could do them justice.
25 years of would never think it.
