"Little Is Detailed About Black Panther’s Life..."

Updated: Oct 24

"...Before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149."

This 32mm scale plastic model of T'Challa is produced by “CoolMiniOrNot” and can be found in the Original Marvel Zombies starter set for Zombicide. "Captured by Giant-Man before his transformation and used as foodstock", this particular incarnation of the Black Panther was created by Robert Kirkman and Sean Phillips for the January 2006 issue of "Marvel Zombies" by "Marvel Comics".

The entire model was initially treated to a double coat of "Warlord Games" Pitch Black, before being given an enthusiastic dry-brush of "Vallejo" Heavy Charcoal. The Avenger's necklace was then 'picked out' with some "Vallejo" Gunmetal, and then completely soaked in "Citadel" Nuln Oil. As a final step though, New Wakanda's leader had his eyes 'spotted' with a couple of drops of White Star by "Two Thin Coats".

"Pendraken Miniatures" WIPs - A pair of Sheman tanks slowly having their tracks and details 'picked out'

Originally, I was planning on taking a very simple approach to the Hero Miniature's base, with a simple layer or two of "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna. However, having seen all the branches, leaves and small stones littering it, I decided to spend a bit more time on it so as to help make it 'pop' a little more. Resultantly, I also applied a couple of coats of "Vallejo" Heavy Brown across all the groundwork surrounding T'Challa's wooden log, and later gave both areas a healthy dose of "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade.

To bring out all the sculpt's incredible details, I gave the tree stump a dry-brush of (more) "Vallejo" Heavy Sienna, and then the entire ensemble a delicate passing with some (more) "Vallejo" Heavy Brown. Lastly, I carefully traced/base-coated all the vines and leaves dotted about with a combination of "Vallejo" Heavy Green and (more) "Citadel" Agrax Earthshade.

"Pendraken Miniatures" WIPs - This BA-64 armoured car is being painted as one captured by the Germans

With my latest Zomtober entry finished, and a couple of 4x6 foot cloth gaming mats apparently winging their way to me from "Deep Cut Studios", I have also managed to spend some time progressing a significant number of 10mm vehicles I own by "Pendraken Miniatures" - most notably a pair of the Middlesbrough-based manufacturer's Sherman models which I believe I picked up from one of this year's wargaming shows for my ever evolving Battle of the Bulge campaign.

Additionally though, I have also made some significant in-roads on a host of decade-old Soviet four-wheeled armoured scout cars, which I originally thought were German Sd.Kfz 221 vehicles. Having mistaken the trio of BA-64s I had aimed to simply add them to my Operation Sealion invasion force. However, having had my error pointed out to me and already almost finished painting them, they're now going to be added to my Axis Ardennes Offensive Army, to represent a reconnaissance unit of the despicable SS Division Das Reich - which are known to have used the captured Russian cars at Kursk in July 1943, so might have retained some of them following their redeployment back West afterwards..?
