More zombies!

Hello,

I got another four zombies to show today. The photos are a bit dark because the weather is bad, but I did made a step forward and used a white background this time!

There's 4 zombies, two from the Wargames factory female range and two from Studio miniatures plastic range.

Not much to say about them, really. I was mixing some paints to get the green blue colour and slapped it on. I went with "rotten flesh" look for their skin, which probably wasn't the best choice as they are not too decayed looking. I might mention the second female is heart breaking skinny, but I really like the broken ankle and the huge tight wound of the first one!




I only have 9 zombies to paint now, 3 of which are WW2 and 1 isn't really a zombie as it's a set of Mantic legs with a spine. Once I get those done, I believe a "horde" (group?) shot is in order.

Also, a quick shot of the special zombies with TCR. I know some times less is more, but when it comes to zombies more seems to be more and if it were for me, I would just slap TCR all over them!

That's it for today and I think I'll be back to modern gaming with my next post!

Thanks for looking,
Mathyoo

    1. Thanks! I might even want to put some more zombies together, but I am saving those for "something else" - which hasn't been defined just yet!

    1. Thanks Clint. They are far from world domination, but Evergreen fields is in serious trouble!

  3. All good additions to your forces; a horde shot would be welcome.

    I agree that the Wargames Factory female zombie on the right is extremely thin, as are many of the arms in that kit. I'd rather they had a bit more substance to them, myself. It would make more robust models, as well as looking less emaciated!

    1. Thanks!

      I will make sure to take time and snape some shots when the weather gets better, but I will save it for the times when there's nothing better to post :P

      I agree, got to admit that female survivors are a step forward, though. So they do learn :)

    1. Thanks! I followed your advice to the letter (even used a book!), except for the lamp. It gives out very yellow light and I think it would spoil everything.

  5. Oh, I like them, Mathyoo! Personally, I don't mind that the WF females are too thin. It just reinforces the fact that they are zombies and not catwalk models. I can understand your attitude to "splashing on" the gore. There are times when it is justified. Painting zombies gives you the perfect excuse to go over the top!

    1. Thanks.
      Your argument about catwalk models is only true for the chubby ones, those awfully skinny ones look like they came straight from a runway!

      I completely agree with gore, but I MUST stop painting red clothes on them, such a waste...

  6. Looking good. I'm tempted to slather an entire zombie in TCr sometime, just for the 'Carrie' effect

  7. Nice zombies Mathyoo. I like the skin colour. Yes some really skinny zombies in that box. Would love to see a horde shot.
