Aaaaargh Zombies!!!

Not much painting done in the last few weeks with long working hours and other more "important" activities taking the little free time I've had.

However things have taken a turn for the worse with the arrival of Zombicide Season 3 Kickstarter and helluva lot of Zombie related goodies! Plenty of new scenarios to play through and a ton of new Zombie types to battle against! So there's one more thing competing from my slightly limited free time :)

Finland was understandably in the lower priority list when sending out stuff so seeing peoples posts from the last month or so about their stuff was annoying to say the least. However all is well with the arrival of my package late last evening. In addition to the huge load of stuff that everyone gets I did decide to order some extras that aren't that easy to get hold of here in Finland like the Zombie Dogs and Dog Companions.



After having gone through the pile I had to get a game in so we picked one of the shorter scenarios from Rue Morgue with the lady of the house and got ready to smash in some heads. These new Skinner zombies are a nice addition with multikilling weapons potentially only cutting up a zombie who just continues it's existance as a crawler. The scenario was a bit too easy for a Medium difficulty one, but still it was probably for the best as it was already quite late and quick completion meant more sleep to be had :)


On the painting front I now have 5 battalions done out of the 13 that I'm painting for our Russian campaign. They are still missing flags and basing so not much to show. I need to speed up a bit with the last 8 as there's only 5 weeks left to paint them. I've now squeezed down the painting time for one battalion to roughly 8-9 hours so a single battalion doesn't take long. It's just that finding more than an hour of painting time per day has been difficult to say the least.

  1. Yeah, it's arrived! I'm impressed you've got a game in too, a lot of mine is still boxed I'm ashamed to say!

    1. Yeah had to get a game in immediately :D I've been waiting for this so much for the last few weeks. Sacrificing sleep proved to be a good way to find some time for gaming :)

  2. How come, you haven't painted those zombie box figs you have there?

    1. It's still just a boardgame so they won't need painting. Plus soft plastic is extremely annoying to paint up anyways. I might get around to painting the survivors at some point, but don't really feel like it now.

  3. It's nice to have something new that doesn't need painting! :-)

    1. New toys never hurt! Especially ones that don't add to the threateningly large unpainted pile

  4. Glad your box arrived safe and sound. It's a great collection of boxes you've got there

    1. Thanks! The missus wasn't as thrilled when she first realized just how much was in there :) At least now she's recovered from the initial shock.

    1. You should as France was the first European nation to be infected by this new season :) I'd expect the infection to be far spread by now.
