  1. Painted alternate Zombicide: Black Plague heroes for my nephew and niece for Xmas this year. They had borrowed the heroes for several weeks to play with on my brother's board, but I asked for them back eventually. I decided to go ahead and paint them and give them as gifts today. Thanks to whoever the genius artist was whose color scheme I copied for Persephone. I suck at paint schemes, so I almost always have to copy. Black Currant was mainly mine as I largely chose a black scheme since the pic on his card didn't have much black in it. I wanted my Black Currant to actually BE black, so I chose almost all dark coloring. I'm still a journeyman painter, so I don't usually highlight, but I experimented with highlight streaks in Persephone's hair and I thought it came out pretty well, so I'm learning. I just wish I had more time to paint.
  2. Need help painting a cloak

    Journeyman painter here still struggling to paint when I don't have someone choose the colors for me. I'm trying to paint a Zombicide: Black Plague add-on hero named Black Currant, but I don't like his color choices. I want to make him mainly black so he's more worthy of his name. I want to nail the fur part of his cloak, though. I see some guy painted it with Skavenblight Dinge, but that looks to be some form of grey, to me. I'd rather it look more like fur, so I thought I'd paint it something dark and then dry brush it with something else. Anybody have suggestions or know of a good guide? Also, I'd welcome suggestions for the cloak color to go with dark black plate mail. Not really feeling the purple.
  3. More Massive. More Darkness.

    Damn. That troll/giant's skin is amazing.
  4. Zombicide: Black Plague Hirst Arts walls

    That could work quite well. I'd like to see that.
  5. Zombicide Modern Abomination

    Awesome. This would like quite fearsome on the table.
  6. Zombicide: Black Plague Hirst Arts walls

    Used mold #344 from Hirst Arts to craft walls for my Zombicide: Black Plague game to take my game 3D. Going to try it tomorrow night after we meet friends to decorate Christmas cookies with the kids.
  7. Zombicide: Black Plague Abomination

    Gloss removed. Now, following Sorrastro's tutorial, I'm adding initial highlight layer of Kislev Flesh and Cadian Fleshtone. This is much harder than anything I've done before. Was tempted just to leave it be with the quickshade wash, but I agree this looks much better.
  8. Not the best pic, but if you look, you can see Finari's sword hilt is bent around and attached to her gauntlet. I didn't notice this initially and the figure is already primed if that matters. I'm trying to decide whether to try to separate the hilt with an Xacto knife or just bite the bullet and accept the flaw. Having not done this before, I can't think of any tricks or advice other than to be careful. Just thought I'd put out a shout here in case there was something I was missing.
  9. Base coat and then Army Painter quickshade. Still need to remove the gloss and then highlight.
  10. Now that summer is here and I'm not teaching anymore, I'm finally poised to finally finish my Black Plague zombies. Did three sets of seven and the abomination that I'm about to post. Fatties, male walkers, female walkers. Here are the fatties first with their base coats, then with Army Painter quick shade applied. Matte varnish to come and then highlighting.
  11. Brush health coach needed

    Thanks, all. I bought pink soap, brush cleaner, and brush restorer at Michael's over the weekend.
  12. Brush health coach needed

    So, I'm guessing if I don't store my brushes with the brush up, nor with the brush down, they should be stored on their sides, yes? I'll look for the Vallejo Brush Restorer. Thanks. Good tip about not getting paint up by the ferrule and only using the lower half. Did not know that.
  13. Brush health coach needed

    So I'm gradually gaining some confidence with this hobby, but I'm abusing and ruining my brushes. I just broke out a 1-Reaper Pro Paint brush that I got at my FLGS and was painting some more Zombicide figures. I was dipping and painting, and dipping and painting, and basically never rinsing since I was using the same color. Now, I've lost my point. The brush separates at the end which makes it next to useless. Was this from my failure to rinse? How often do you need to, particularly when you're not switching colors? Also, I thought I read someone talk about brush soap, preservatives, etc. Would they have this at my FLGS? Please tell me what I need and some brand names so I can stop going through brushes. Thanks.
  14. Zombicide: Black Plague: Fatties 1

    My strategy is to paint them without any original thought on my part whatsoever, but to steal shamelessly from Sorrastro as much as possible. Maybe after I've finished painting all my Black Plague figures, I'll start to gain enough confidence to start making some painting decisions on my own.
