Zombicide 1st Edition, Season 3: Barricades

Zombicide 1st Edition, Season 3: 3D Pack Barricades

Just a quickie today. We’re completely into September’s models now, and so I’ve got a couple of pieces that I started several years ago, dug out (ok, found part-painted in a tub and decided to finish) for Dave Stone’s annual Season of Scenery challenge, didn’t get done in time, though now I’ve completed them and can get them the hell out of here and into the War Room. Hopefully I’ll get a whole bunch of other stuff I started/found done as well in the next few weeks and clear some space to start newer projects and models.

They’re pretty simple, small pieces, though they are actually pretty nice. They’d work well enough in any modern or post-apoc setting from Crisis Protocol to Zona Alfa. They are a little small, as noted – but they’re made to fit a certain sized space on a boardgame tile, so I certainly can’t complain there. They came in a pack filled with a whole bunch of 3D doors that open and close – the sort of thing that works well as a game aid but are completely uninteresting as things to paint. I used a little touch of the Dirty Down Rust effect on them here and there as well to try out – I’ll be going harder with it in some later pieces of terrain.

I’ll get August’s round-up done in a week or so. Busy, tired and need to do a bunch of cleaning up before I can get to clearing the desk once again.

Zombicide 1st Edition, Season 2: Prison Outbreak - Berserker Runner Zombies + Bonus Fatties

Today’s unweildly-titled post shows the first half of the Berserker Runner Zombies from the Prison Outbreak standalone expansion. The colour scheme of prison orange and cooked-lobster red carapace pretty much follows the same one I used on the Berserker Abominations and then the Berserker Fatties. It’ll certainly keep them easily distinguished from the other Zombie variations!

While it’s certainly true that these aren’t exactly sexy model blog content, they are very much useful models for our actual tabletop games, especially given that we got up to the stage of using the Berserkers in our little campaign, so now I feel like I need to delay playing again until I’ve gotten all of these finished…

The first batch of models I managed to get cleaned up were the dozen of the first runner sculpt, and along with those I also got the three extra Fatties from the little Berseker add-on pack I picked up recently – and one of the second sculpt – so I painted those as well. Now I just need to finish trimming – and then paint the dozen or so more of that second runner sculpt and I’ll have all of my Berserkers except for the Walkers done. Something to aim for in September, then…
