More zombies! Aaargh!

Hey guys,

even more zombies to show today. Same again, 2 male zombies from Studio Miniatures plastics and two female zombies from Wargames factory (okay, it's one and a half). 
Not much to say, they are all straight from the box (and probably last one like that, as I'm already converting some, more on that in one of the next posts!). I went for "formal" black and white colours. I've also put in another jeans as all I do is blue wash over white. I think lots of zombies will have jeans, which is odd as I don't own a single pair of those myself.

So, there is my least favorite sculpt there, the fit half naked male zombie and your ordinary office Joe. That has red on him and looks like someone everyone should know. There is simply no other way to paint a guy in a shirt and a tie.

Female zombies are a bit more interesting, one is a crawler and the other one is an office lady. Her right sleeve was actually painted on, as I've somehow glued a bare arm there. I got no idea, how I didn't notice that. It looks fine, however.
I've decided to put some extra blood on her for two reasons. First, Tamiya Clear Red is probably the single reason I enjoy painting zombies over painting anything else. And second, I figured it would look cool - is that a "smart" zombie, using an improvised weapon or the blood is old this woman was bashing skulls with her yesterday-so-important paperwork? Who'd knew!




In the background you can see some dollies as my moderns project is slowly gaining steam again.


Really nothing else I could say. I got a FOW tournament tomorrow. It should be a blast as I got my favorite army ready. It's not competitive and I haven't played in months but it has pionieres and Stugs, so I got that going for me! Can't promise any photos, but I just might take the camera with me for a change.

Thanks for looking,
Mathyoo

  1. Nicely done, Mathyoo. You really can't go wrong with TCR and I love painting zombies better than anything else... which is just as well seeing as I have so many of them. BTW, I don't own any jeans either, so you're not alone there.

    1. Thanks! I have also found out it's not worth spending too much time on the zombies, if I am going to cover it all in blood anyway!

  3. Hmm, I enjoy splashing TCR on zombies and haven't worn jeans in a few years, maybe you've stumbled on something here...

  4. I'm making up for the rest of you I do own 5 pairs of jeans. Wearing some as I type this. Maybe that means I am a zombie! Who knows. Still enough of fashion.

    Very nice additions to the horde. Always good to see a few more Zeds staggering around. Death by paperwork... That's just horrible, I suspect I will have nightmares now!

  6. I think I read somewhere that 50% of people in the world wear jeans, so you really can't go wrong dressing your zombies in them.

    1. Just 50? I keep seeing people in jeans :P. And it does make a fast paining when the mojo is low :D

  7. Nice work Mathyoo at four a week you'll soon have a horde ready to go.

    Its funny you mention not owning any jeans. I have probably equal amounts of jeans, tracksuits and normal trousers. Not thought about it much tbh.

  8. Everyone needs a good pair of denim lol!
    Some more nice zeds for the horde. Interesting how you paint jeans as I do the opposite with a white dry brush over blue!

    1. No problem at all mate, I actually use that so I can follow the new posts. :P

      As for my horde, I honestly don't know...perhaps around 40-50 only. I'm very slow in zombie department lately :)
