Silvervane's Zombicide Walkers WIP

Recommended Posts

After my exchange mini I wanted to touch work on something less taxing. So I decided to work on a few more Walkers. Also I decided to test out the camera on my new tablet. Not a whole lot of editing options, but I could crop the photos, and I think I got the white balance OK.

Here is the group shot:

While I finished the highlights on the skin of all 4, I only managed to get this guy's highlights finished. I still plan on putting down some washes to make the shadows darker, and bloody him up. But this is the 1st step in my Zombicide process.


I'll see how it looks on my computer in a bit.


Edit: I changed to topic title to reflect the change in WIP's Purpose.  Later I will add the four unpainted models.

I think I spotted our Mayor in there!

Ha, no need to tell which one and/or why you see the resemblance.


Really like those blues!

Thanks,  RMS Sapphire Blue shaded with RMS Nightmare Black and Highlighted up with RMS Blue Flame.

The following is the results I achieved from last nights hangouts session.  Finally got around to posting my results before I begin tonight's painting session.


And now for the shading.  My homemade Zombie wash.  I then added Brown Liner to the mix to the deepest shadows.  The next step is to bloody them up some before sealing.

Some of the nicest zombicide paintjobs i've seen!
What is your homemade zombie wash if you don't mind giving away trade secrets.

Can do.  Here is link to my last WIP for these guys that give the general process I used.  Hope It helps.  Though for these guys I substituted Matt Medium for RMS Brush on sealer.

I decided rather than start several short WIP's for painting what amounts to the same models in different color's, I will use this WIP to show my progress in the Zombicide season 1 walkers.

On to The next batch.  They are almost done.  They just need to be bloodied.  I plan to try the tooth brush spray to get spatter effects on these guys for the blood.  We'll see how it goes.

3) Actually try freehand.

Play with it on walker's t-shirts, etc :)
Yeah, I've been procrastinating on that. I'll think on some simple designs.


Next color was going to be white. Was thinking of some kind of design for the dresses ascwell.

OK, While I said white... I meant mostly white.  Here is the next group with their base coats.  Highlighting to follow and freehand to follow.  If anyone wants I can show the stages I go through on one of the figures?

I was hit with a bit of low motivation, so I didn't get much done in the past few.


stages would be nice

Since you asked I did the best I could to photo the Highlighting process. 


****Long Post****


Step one:

This is the one from the previous photo, but I re-posted it to demonstrate the process.  I put a base coat layer down.  This is one stage darker than I would for a traditional mid color base coat.



White: RMS Dusky Skin Highlight.

Pink: RMS Breast Cancer Awareness Pink / Foundry Royal Purple (Mid)  1:1

Blue:  Foundry Vivid Blue A (Shadow)


Step Two:

I then begin layering roughly what would be a traditional mid-color base coat on to all areas except the deepest shadows.



White: RMS Weathered Stone

Pink: RMS Breast Cancer Awareness Pink

Blue: Foundry Vivid Blue B (Mid Tone)


Step Three:

I continue the highlight layering.  Placing the next highlight on all the raised surface that light should be hitting or that I want to stand out.



White : RMS Leather white

Pink: RMS Breast Cancer Awareness Pink / RMS White  (2:1)

Blue: Foundry Vivid Blue C (Highlight)


Step Four:

Most times the final highlight.  This I put on only the most raised areas.  Except for white which I layer more than I would a normal Highest highlight.  I find any less than and it looses all sense of being white.  Yes this stage will probably look garishly bright.  It is ok,  That is what you use the glaze/wash step for.



White: RMS White

Pink: RMS White / RMS Breast Caner Awareness Pink (2:1)

Blue: Foundry Vivid Blue C / RMS White (2:1)


Glazing to hopefully Follow tonight.

      I recently got in the latest "Heroines in Sensible Shoes" Kickstarter from Oathsworn Miniatures.  I decided to get started on them and take (yet another) break from my in progress Rising Sun minis.

      As \always, they were nice, clean casts with lots of detail, but nothing over-wrought...which makes sense for low-level adventurers!  They're such a joy to paint.

      One of my favourite sculpts, quite a weird creature. I love wizards. 
      I'm happy with the color palette, the blues and greens combine just fine with the skin tone and I think I blended them nicely.

      With the arrival of Zombicide Green Horde, I realized that I had yet to paint up any of the necromancers for the game.  So I decided to start a new thread for these guys.
      I decided that instead of starting with the one that came with the core set, I would paint up another one called Grin.  I had planned on just painting up a base coat today as I waited on the primer of another figure.  Then I just kept going.  Now the art for the figure has him with a very dark overall feel.  The figure's backstory has it that he's half zombie from a failed ritual.  So I Went with the zombie skin I had with the rest of the zombies.  I then added in a warm brown to try to give him a little more life than a regular zombie.  Looking at the image I think I need something else.
      Well here is the results of today's painting:

      Hello again, friends and neighbours! 
      Several years ago, after the Bones I kickstarter, I made a thread to help people who had just signed up for a ridiculous amount of Bones minis get used to painting and encourage them to just jump right on in!  This thread was even more successful than I thought and, much to my astonishment, brings new people to our hobby even today.  I thought it was time for a fresh update that might be just as helpful, and maybe give us something to point new people to when they first decide to pick up a brush and become One of Us.
      Often when new people come by and have no idea where to start, the first general question is: what are your aims and requirements?  This basically breaks down to: do you need pieces done for a game, or do you want to paint just to paint?  The idea behind this WIP is to give us something to show people the difference in practice.  So with the able assistance of Guindyloo, I will be painting Thanis in my usual fast-but-decent method and she will show us how nice things can be when you spend some time on them. 
      There are, of course, many ways to paint a mini so this thread is just an example of our present working methods and by no means serve as the only way to do it, or the final word on the matter.  Those of you just joining our hobby may have your own ideas about how to do things, and by all means you should use your own best judgment!  All we do here is just give you some things to think about.
      So on to the mini you came in here to see, and I hope this thread proves useful! 
      Here's my Thanis, fresh from her blister pack:

      I picked out 14352 Unforgiven, Crusader Grunt to practice the lessons in Bones LTPK #1.  I'm aiming for "tabletop" quality with this paint job.
      Here's the miniature with most of the basecoating done:

      The colors in use are:
      09050 Antique Gold for the gold accents 09052 Shadowed Steel for the armor 09053 Honed Steel for the sword 09056 Templar Blue for the edge of the tabard, the sword hilt, and the edge of the tabard (or whatever that is) 09064 Brown Liner for lining between the blue and yellow on the tabard 09074 Palomino Gold for the tabard and the undercoat for the gold accents 09110 Oiled Leather for the belt 29843 HD Solid Black for the black  
      The white patches on the tabard are 09108 Brush-on White Primer because I scraped off the paint there.  (I got some basing material stuck there, decided I'd paint over it, and then decided to scrape it off and make it look better.)
      My next tasks are to repaint the reprimed parts of the tabard after the primer cures and fix any painting errors before moving on to the wash portion of the exercise.  (Any shadows you see in the pictures are probably a result of the lighting rather than any painted effects.)
      After I'm done with this, I suppose I should paint Sir Forscale.
