Lookin' good there. Can I ask, are these for display or are you gaming with them? If so, what system are you using?

Thanks! These are for gaming, though I don't get to play as often as I'd like so they end up mostly on display. Honestly the main reason I paint anything is just because I find the paining itself relaxing, gaming is just a bonus for me.

We have a long-running campaign of zombie-necromunda (basically necromunda in an area overrun with zombies), with the regular necromunda rules mixed with Akula's zombie rules.

Ditto, who needs a psychiatrist when you've got a lead mountain? :D

And in answer to your question, I think you most definitely have yourself a horde going on there.

I couldn't agree more. A good friend was recommended he find something relaxing to do by his doctor some years ago. Thus our regular Tuesday night painting sessions started. He always refers to this as 'therapy' and he's right.

 :metoo:

Painting gets my vote for a legitimate therapy excersise.  I do believe that you have reached the edge of 'group', are verging on 'mob' and will be a hoard at 25 members.  That's my two bits worth.

Last but not least, looking fantastic!

I have a tweeter thing now.  I might even use it.  @leadpaintshed if I can figure out how to

Of course in that case the only sensible thing to do is: expand the horde till it's a tribe...

The new addition to the group's looking good btw.

 :lmao: I certainly wouldn't argue

I really like leadhead's group -> mob -> horde progression, I'm going to stick with that. Now I really want to make it to 25.  :D
