Some questions about ATZ

First of all welcome to three new followers: Veloci, S, and RSpears192.  Hope you enjoy the blog.
I recently picked up All Things Zombie by Two Hour Wargames.  I'm a huge zombie fan (as evidenced by EOW) and was also in the market for a solo wargame.  I know the game is way popular and there are several campaign blogs about ATZ out there, and I have a few questions about the game.

  • how many zombie miniatures do I need?  Two dozen?  More?
  • how many civilian miniatures do I need?
One of the things I really need to do is find a game, though.  I'd settle for either an RPG or a wargame, just something to get me out of the house.

More Orcs, this time in blue

Orc Warriors, Games Workshop
My work on the lead-n-plastic pile continues.  These are some of the last of ones that had already had some paint on them before I moved.  I thought these turned out pretty well.

A Disaster, and a Beginning

I took aside five of the orcs from the Lead Pile that had already been mostly painted, did some touch-ups and hit them with the wood varnish.  The next day I took them outside and sprayed them with matte sealant.

Only it wasn't matte sealant, it was white primer.

I'm trying to figure out if I can salvage them but it might be a lost cause.  So I pressed on, painting up (or doing some finishes touches on) a few more orcs.  These I successfully varnished.  The paint jobs aren't impressive--some of them date back from years ago, but I figure they qualify as "tabletop ready."

And the good news is I'm on the board for getting the lead pile down, and that's worth something.
