I would like to start off by saying a big Happy Birthday to my brother Gareth! He would have been 29 today. I wish he could be here to celebrate with us. We plan to have a meal along with some cider (as he liked cider), and then we are also planing to send up a birthday balloon with a note attached to it. It still feels at times that he is still here, and I have to think about it sometimes to realise that he isn't. I still can't believe it, like it hasn't sunken in. I know it happened, but I just can't comprehend it. It's like my brain refuses to believe what happened, and every time I start thinking about it, everything just shuts down. Anyway... it's his birthday, and I hope wherever he is, and whatever he is doing, that he has a great day, and we'll always be thinking of him :)
After reading replies to my last blog it gave me a lot of ideas to consider. One that made sense for me to do right now would be some hospital furniture to compliment the hospital range of zombies. Don't worry, I will be bringing out other zombie ranges, this was just my first.
So, I made some beds, mainly 2 poses, sitting up and laying down. We cast them in resin this morning and I painted one (VERY roughly). These will provide a solid base foundation so over the next week I can dress them up to house sheets/pillows/people alive/corpses etc etc.
So here's one of the "base models", like a prototype. The base hasn't been cast yet. It's not complete as it only has a basic mattress on it. So final ones will be all kitted out in various situations. I've made plans which cover pretty much most scenarios, so depending what you are aiming for it should be covered, whether it's a ward of corpses, a ward with patients who need protecting, or a ward which has recently been fed upon, or simply an empty ward... it's all included :P
Oh by the way, that's a bananaman which Gareth sculpted for the Hasslefree "Dress a Kev" competition :)
I have heard no news about the recent set of zombies which are with the metal caster, but I plan to get these beds finished in time for release with the new zombie nurses.
Cheers again for reading. As always, all comments are very welcome.
