First Mini Painted of 2010

My first miniature painted was a GW Epic Eldar walker that I managed to pick up pretty cheaply on EBay. This will make a pretty nice Grey robot IMO.

I finished the year at a -30 minis painted vs minis bought, still not too bad as I painted 95 minis total (I count a pack of 15mm minis as 1). I did not meet my goal of painting more than I bought, 2010 should go better right?

Pictures of the minis I painted (Khurasan Vampire and Peter Pig US Marines):

Another goal was to wargame with my minis which I did not do, but I did download Stargrunt II last weekend and have started to read it.
2010 Goals
- Play a wargame or two with my minis
- < -20 minis bought - minis painted (should be workable)
- Post at least 2x/month on the blog
- Obtain and paint some 15mm armor (maybe Peter Pig or QRF)
What I Am Working On...
- Khurasan Karks (0 of 8 CMP)
- Heresy Blight Zombie
- Heresy Zombie Halfling
- Rebelminis Zombie Dogs (0 of 6 CMP)
- GZG various from previous sale

2nd time iv posted this dude. i managed to post it like in 2009 sum time...dnt ask, lets jus say me an technology dnt agree. i did foget how much i liked your work by the way, you do have sum talent there

never got them zombies in the end (wargame factory). jus never came so i got a refund. got my self some of the last night on earth stuff insted. who insidently have bought out 2 new sets. new set of 4 heros. which are ok. not that intresting. but the second is the grave dead, 14 minis 7 sculpts, u got a crawling torso, a fat zombie. one wrapped in barbbed wire. an the other 4 have pitch forks an axes an junk. that horror clix u mentoined for the fat vomitin guy, did u mean big bertha, any way wen u mentoined horror clix i went online an found that. iv made quite a good fat guy so thanks for that. im quite strict about scales on my models. im wonderin what would fit best with last night on earth stuff? an i cnt belive i got the fu!uk set. i really wanted them. mainly for the reporter an cameraman, an io wanted big things (the one u got painted up) for a left for dead tank. must be said. im startin to waver towards jus doin resi-evil an silent hill generic stuff, just cus of a pyrimid head i made ages ago from silent hill that i dug out. but then again iv made a few generic zombie monster things

That's too bad about the wargames factory stuff not coming - glad you got a refund though.

Big Bertha was the Horroclix one I thought would be a good tank/vommiting guy.

I need to check out the new LNOE zombies, I really liked the original set. I think the Cold Wars, Zombie Smith and Hasslefree zombies (humans, not the tank/cyborg types, which are pretty cool too) match the LNOE ones the best in height and width.

The Frothers zombie/survivors set is really pretty awesome and I like all of the poses in it.
