Zombies, Scarecrows and a Wraith Oh My.

October is here and in the spirit of Halloween I have pulled out some Vampire counts models to work on. These have been on the painting table for far too long and I think I will finish them off this month.

 More Zombies for the horde. I built these when the sixth edition Vampire count army book came out years ago. They added the option of a standard and musician to zombie units so I built three sets and another twenty four zombies. When I get these done I will be able to field three thirty zombie strong units.

 The scarecrows are actually henchmen from a superhero range. I picked them up to use as Wraiths. Once again when the sixth edition Vampire count army book was released they changed wraiths from a character to a unit lead by a Banshee. I wanted more wraiths and these were much more economical.

Last is a Wraith conversion I built years ago. The bottom is from a Wraith I cut in half to make a mounted Wraith. The torso is the hanging torso from the old Zombie sprue and a couple zombie arms. Last I added a greenstuff robe to blend the torso into the lower body.

I want to finish them by the end of the month and maybe take my Vampire Counts over to Gaming Underground for their Wednesday night open gaming.

Hmmmm..... Zombies, Jackozombies, ghouls, wraiths, conversions; all looking good. But somehow, something, just seems to be lacking.... Perhaps I missed it.....

Where oh where is the Blood Monkey!?!?!??!?!?
