Zombies
« on: October 15, 2013, 04:35:56 AM »



The first of several Heresy zombies that I have on hand. Ongoing Zombtober festivities inspired me to actually paint one. http://eclecticgentlemantabletopgamer.blogspot.co.uk/2013/09/zomtober-2013-is-coming.html

Thank you both.

Was trying for purplish-grey with the skin. The recipe while it's still fresh in my mind:

Basecoat: mix of Army Painter Ash Grey (2/3) & GW Nagaroth Night (1/3).

Shading: mix of Army Painter Uniform Grey (2/3), GW Nagaroth Night (1/3) & a tiny amount of GW Chaos Black. (Subtle at this point. Used targeted washes for the heavy duty shading later.)

Highlights: Reaper Mouldy Skin added to the basecoat mix, then straight Mouldy Skin, then Reaper Bloodless Skin.

Wash: Mix of GW Agrax Earthshade & Secret Weapon Soft body Black (roughly 50/50) with a touch of Secret weapon Blue.

Glazed a little GW Warlock Purple and Reaper Bronzed Highlight in places for some some variation of the overall tone.

Lower Lip: Reaper Military Blue

Used GW Lahmian Medium throughout (except basecoat and wash).

Lovely job, I think you've found the perfect colour scheme for the undead.

Beautiful work on that little girl... do you have the other Eolith/Spyglass zombies, too? I'd love to see you work your magic on them!

I love the washed out look, while still being colourful.  Good stuff.

Sorry, I cannot appreciate young kids zombies. Something inside me finds them revolting. Beside this, you're a great painter!

Thanks all.

@MartinWhitmore: I still have the other two blister-mates of the child zombie. http://heresyminiatures.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1_11_30&products_id=122 They have a medieval vibe that fits nicely with some previously painted zombies by Otherworld and Reaper.

Wow. Just wow. I remember once waving a brush at these very figures and giving up. Beautifully done! And in case anyone doesn't realise the little girl is only about 16mm to the top of the head, the detail work is stunning!

Can I use the pics on the site (with credit & a link address)?

Lovely PJs there (if you could say that about zombies?). Those Muller sculpts have so much character and you've done them proud.
