Randolph

Randolph

(To the tune of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer)


Randolph the zombie reindeer,

Caught the virus from his clothes,

And if you ever saw him,

He would try and bite your throat,


He hated the other reindeer,

And so he ate all of their brains,

They never bet poor Randolph,

Would enter a state of prion induced cannibalistic living death that would result in their souls being drained.

Randolf is my favourite figure from the Studio Miniatures “A Christmas Nightmare” pack.  Like the majority of Studio Miniatures stuff, the figure is very nicely sculpted.

My painting worked out well here I think, as I was concerned that Randolphs costume would look like the appropriate horrible, cheap and sweaty material rather than actual fur.  Having spent a couple of hours in a Sylvester the Cat outfit many years ago, getting that part of the painting right was a priority.  I can still remember the smell, and I wasnt even dead.

Happy Secular-mas.

  1. Great sculpt this, and a superb paintjob! =)

    So – what the hell were you doing in a Sylvester outfit?!

      Its not much of a story: I wore a Sylvester outfit for a day and waved at kids. It was very much to the forefront of my mind when I painted this figure though. Those suits stink of all of the previous occupants.

      Thanks for the feedback. The Studio Miniatures figures are good fun. I got the Big Zombie Deal as an early Xmas gift. Lots more fun miniatures to paint up in that.
