The Blackstar Chronicles...




is my new blog devoted to All Things Two Hour Wargames, so that means zombies will make an appearance on it at some point. Never fear, The Quick and the Zed: Death Warmed Over is in no danger of being "interred" - I do do other things besides zombies, so I needed a new blog to feature my other gaming interests.

In other news, the 15mm zeds are still in the painting queue (on the table) so they will be done soon.

The Slab: Time to put my zeds where my...

mouth is?...

Okay, maybe not...



but it is time to start painting the 125+ 15mm zeds I've had laying around for quite a few months. I'm kicking it into overdrive - mass priming now, then mass base coating. Since I have so many to work on, I will be going for a more "uniform" look to them. After the base coat, I'm just going to use a simple wash, like I did on the 28mm zeds in the background of the photo below -



This will speed things up, while providing a decent looking mini on the tabletop.

More photos as I progress.

Well, maybe I should...





not rule out using 15mm minis, at least for ATZ. It is easier to field a massive horde of zeds, plus it's quicker to paint and less expensive than using 28s. Plus I have a larger collection of suitable terrain in 15mm than I do in 28mm, not to mention vehicles. On the subject of suitable terrain, this past Sunday I was given a Hannah Montana Mall by none other than Ed, the Two Hour Wargames Guy! Ed lives about 20 miles away from me and on Sunday I went over to his place and we played 5150 :Fringe Space and talked about wargames, miniatures, and what not. Ed told me he's not a painter and asked me if I liked ATZ, and I said "yep", so he told me he had a Hannah Montana Mall that he picked real cheap in Arizona, and that he'd probably never paint it, and said I could have it.  So now I have another great terrain piece for ATZ!
Sometime this week, I hope to get some paint on the 125+ 15mm zeds I own. I'll post photos as I get some done.

Getting over my "DUST" phase...

I'm getting tired of DUST Tactics, so I will be working my way back to Zeds soon... I think I need to look into buying  Zombicide Black Plague and maybe Shadows of Brimstone...


Oh, and I resigned my commission, so it's no longer Major Diz Aster...
