28mm Zombies, Mutants, Bases and a Newsletter!

Hey all,

I'll start quickly with a photo of some painted 28mm Bioblytes. I don't think I've posted this on the blog, so here they are. They are painted similar to some of the monsters in Mass Effect 3 (as you know I love that trilogy).

Newsletter
I decided to add a "newsletter" to the website on the front page. So if you want to be alerted when new items are on-line, then feel free to go to the main page and fill out the small "newsletter" form.

I only plan to send out emails when new things are released, or if something changes on the website. So similar to the blog, just less often and more to the point! I mainly thought about the people who are not on Facebook or Blogger, so the best way for them to keep up to date is through email.

Here's the link: http://www.grekwoodminiatures.co.uk/

Website Photos
I finally retook the big bundle deal photo for the zombies. The previous one had the old bandaged nurses in it, so it now has the newer nurses in there. The photo is better in general too, more colour and slightly closer.

Here it is:

Sculpting
Yesterday I finally finished posing another 16 figures (zombies). I have finished sculpting 3 and 2 others are almost complete. I'm hoping to get these all done before xmas (in time for christmas), but we shall see.

I'm also working on another 45mm miniature. But I can't say too much at this stage. It is however zombie related in some form. Think along the lines of our "Executioner Steve", the "not silent hill" guy, but for that other popular video game/Movies.

Rock and Timber Bases
We have some bases in a number of sizes 50, 40, 30 and 25mm. I was thinking of finally adding them to the website. It would be bases like the one shown below (but in different size and shape rocks). They would be cheap like the other bases, as resin does not cost much to produce compared to metal.



Shows/Convensions
I'm contemplating going to a show here in Cardiff next January. It seems like a good place to start shows as it's only about 20-30 minutes away, so no overnight stays or any other costs. I just have to see how much it all costs.

I have also looked into those portable credit/debit card devices to hire for the show. Anyone ever had any experience with them as a trader (not a buyer)?

CGD Trip and a Pirate
So the CGD trip is next week, should be fun. I have my pirate costume almost complete, I just need to sort out the boots. I have decided not have a hat, just a bandanna will be good enough I think! This is mainly because I don't have a hat which is good enough!

Ok that's all for now... I think! Have a great day everyone :)

    The bioblytes are fantastic, blue really adds to the contrast!
