The theme for this months HOARD is: Halloween
This means scary monsters, undead and other horrifying figures.
If you submit a figure, they must include both front and rear art, have a proper trimming outline, and include instructions for multi-part models. Recolors and figure mods are encouraged, and even uncolored designs are welcome.
No nudity or sexuality, but bloody gory and horrifying is encouraged.
If you have questions about how to design your figures, like formats, resolution, and stuff like that, see the HOARD GUIDELINES in this forum category.
I would like to see as many people try their hand at designing, even if it's just a recolor or figure modification, post something. I know I'll keep my own goals modest, and try to get at least one figure done for each HOARD. JIM

I'd like to put something together for this hoard as well, I'm leaning towards some kind of creepy thin sack faced scarecrow (with a side of crows). But we'll see what comes out when I get to the drawing table.

In the good ole days of Warhammer, back in the 90s, I used to have 50 zombies with Great Weapons !!! (Great Weapons gave you a great damage bonus but forced you to always strike last and zombies always struck last anyways, so it was a match made in heaven...okay maybe not heaven, but you get the idea)
I could probably kitbash Weaponless Zombies in less than an hour..
I think I actually started doing that at one point, but I mostly just cut the weapons off of the figures and used black marker to cover up the edges.
Eventually, we need to get some more modern zombies.

Yowsa! I have been pretty burned out from work, so have not really been in the mood to draw in the evenings, just burning brain cells on the net. Anyway, I do hope to get cracking on my zombie and ghoul troops this weekend. I plan to design them in parts like the other troops and make multiple versions with and without weapons.
I think my alien dudes are really making my head spin with the backwards legs, so I'm thinking of cropping them just so I can move forward. I can do backwards leg designs later as all the stuff will be parts anyway. JIM
I am working on a project too, but i doubt it will be ready. Besides, it fit the theme but not exactly the idea of the hoard, since it is not a paper model (but will need a couple when/if it is finished). It is a tile game with the working title "Haunted Mansion", and is inspired by classic horror movies and Lovecraft lore.
The idea is that the players are a group of people that try to escape from a haunted mansion by exploring the house to find clues and keys to help them get out.
When (IF!) i finish the game design, i will probably need some graphics for it though. If anyone is interested in hearing more about it and maybe even help with the game, i will post more about it (in another section of the forum though).

squirmydad: I use winXP in Paralells on my Macbook to run Pepakura and Metasequoia. Otherwise I only touch Windows when a client can't figure out how to mirror their display to my projectors.
