Brains - they're good, and good for you!

Killing zombies, so you don't have to. That's the power of Zombicide!
I recently received my box for the Zombicide: Season 2 Kickstarter - 19 pounds of plastic and cardboard. I foolishly passed on the original Zombicide Kickstarter, and wound up purchasing the base game through the Season 2 KS as well. If you're not familiar with Zombicide, it is a 1-6 player co-op survival game where players are pitted against zombies controlled by the game itself. I think it's a pretty neat concept, I like the look, and I think it will be a fun game to break out once in a while.

"They're coming for you, Honey Boo Boo..."
I went through the boxes the other day and counted up all the models I have to paint. After recovering from the heart attack, I recounted and found that there are around 244 zombies to paint from the three combined sets and the Kickstarter bonuses. Yikes. This number does not include the Survivors, of which there are many. Double yikes.

My enthusiasm was restored after watching the Dead Rising 3 trailer this weekend though (Warning: bad language and zombie killing after the break!):

Badger Airbrush Sotar 2020 - $65 at Amazon right now!

Heads up! The Badger Air-Brush Co Sotar 2020-2F Large Gravity Feed Airbrush with Fine Head is on sale at Amazon right now for the phenominal price of $65! This the best price in over a year!

By all accounts I've read, this is probably one of the best airbrushes you can get for your money. It's gravity-feed, so you don't have to muck around with bottles (my leftover paint mixes always dry up before I can use them again.)

Be aware that this is more a brush for detail - you're probably not going to want to basecoat an entire army with this airbrush!

And yeah - I picked one up. :)
