Been wanting to get back into painting a mini now and again, probably nothing more than tabletop for a while. So I took a couple hours to slap some paint on this guy I had sitting on the shelf, already primed.
Zombicide Season One Walker 2 Zombicide Season One Walker 2 So I think I’ve mostly forgotten how to paint minis. Didn’t help that I snagged the wrong paper for my wet palette, it was a square of tracing paper, so it was a total mess!
Here is another batch of figures from my work on my Wave 1 Imperial Assault collection. These are a little more recent, having finished them in late May.
It also represents my second real attempt at a non-caucasian human skin tone. One of the figures is a more tanned skin color, and the third is more of an African skin color.
I was very pleased how they came out, especially compared to my first attempt. I followed Sorastro's tutorials, but with Reaper paints.
My favorite part of these aside from the skin was the blending I accomplished on the pants.

Here is another figure from Imperial Assault Core Game, by Fantasy Flight Games.
At once simple but difficult. Trying to achieve dull black and shiny black on the same figure was not easy.
I followed Sorastro's guides, but with Reaper Paint.
I think this was the first figure I broke out my then newly acquired Citadel shades for the OSL.
The black was Black with varying amounts of Snow Shadow for highlights, and then a small dab of a Reaper Sample that is somewhere between ghost white and snow shadow.
The camera flash definitely grayed it up, but when I took the pics with just the light box, it was too dark.
It has some gloss varnish on the helmet and shoulder armor.
Let me know what you think.
Thanks for looking.

In an odd coincidence that I swear I had nothing to do with, the passing of George Romero coincides with my finally completing a set of 77342, Zombies, from the second Bones Kickstarter.
I thought it might be nice if people painted (and shared) zombies, to honor the life of a man who changed horror movies forever.
So I thought I'd try out Army Painter's Strong Quickshade on a couple of KS 1 Zombies. I painted the one on the Right 1st with RMS Ghost White and Snow Shadow mix then 2 highlights. Then i decided to paint the other 2 with just a base coat to see how it went. Left one is RMS Moldy Skin and center one is Vampiric skin. Next was a treatment of the AP Quickshade, followed by a touch up with the base skin tone. I then went a step higher with a base coat and off-white mix. I then gave them the roughly the same pants color and attempted glowing eyes.
I've already decided to go with moldy skin as the walker color for my zombicide BP. I wanted to see how they looked as alternative color for my runner's to make them stand out a bit more. The longest part of the process was the wait time for the Quickshade and sealer to dry. Still need to bloody them up.
