|Vampirella by Enrich (aka Enrique Torres)|
Well, my figure buying sabbatical came to an end as I sent away to Eureka Minis in Australia for some clowns with meat cleavers riding unicycles and a group of 7 Mangaesque schoolgirls armed with firearms. It would seem that my interest in clowns has been reawakened following the unprecedented support for the evil leader of the Killer Klowns, Sunny, in my last batrep, "Who's Laughing Now?" If anyone hasn't got the message by now, Sunny will return. I still have some painted clowns that I haven't shown you but I will also be adding some new figures to the gang.
This month I finished painting 18 Foundry 28mm scale misfits and outcasts from their Street Violence range. Currently getting painted are 20 zombie figures - 9 from Studio Miniatures' wedding party and Halloween sets and 11 from Wargames Foundry's Undead range.
On the card modelling front I managed to build the Finger and Toe Models' Quonset Hut, which you'll have seen in my last batrep and more recently, in a dedicated review. Work has restarted on completing my WWG Mayhem Police Station, so don't worry, I haven't forgotten about it. I'm busy working on furnishing the station's evidence room.
After reading the hugely enjoyable Rise Again by Ben Tripp I moved away from undead literature to something more mainstream - Spider Bones by Kathy Reichs. I'm a big fan of her forensic crime novels and of the TV series tie-in Bones. I finished reading Spider Bones last night and I have to admit it is not one of her better Temperance Brennan novels. Next up, I plan to read Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman. This is a tie-in novel to his comic series The Walking Dead. Fans of the comics will know exactly who the Governor is and what an evil piece of work he is!
October has been a barren month for cinema going as I didn't see any films at my local flea pit this month.
The picture of Vampirella that I've used to illustrate this post is the same one that I'm using as the background to my blog-site. I thought you'd like a better look at it. There aren't that many good illustrations that feature Vampirella with zombies but this one by Enrich is a cracker!
I'd just like to close by wishing you a very Happy Halloween. Have fun!
