Quickshader applied.  Now I need to apply the anti-matte spray to remove the shininess, but not sure how to do that given that it's below zero outside.  If necessary, I'll wait until spring, I guess.  Or I could try it in my garage and potentially blow myself up from the fumes reaching the furnace.  Wonder how warm it needs to be outside...

It depends entirely on individual tolerances, but I find a thin layer of Reaper Brush-on Sealer over gloss coats does a fine job killing shine and can be used pretty much regardless of the weather.  I have no idea how it goes on over Quickshade, however.

 

If you ever feel like trying it, just make sure you wick away any excess sealer to avoid "hazy" areas on the model.  Don't let it pool!

Agreed, my season 1 Walkers all got x2 gloss coat followed by watered down brush-on sealer to dull them back down. Works great for table top. I also agree to not let the brush-on pool.

Hmm.  Thanks.  I'll have to consider that.  I didn't realize that could be use to remove shine.

I followed the same painting tutorial to paint up some of my ZBP zombies. I used Dullcote spray to kill the shine but it didn't get a few of the hard to spray areas. I did those spots with a brush using the bottled Testors Dullcote. It can only be thinned with lacquer thinner or Testors own thinner. You also have to clean the brush with thinner. It works fairly well brushed on, but the bottled Dullcote is better through an airbrush.

 

Honestly, it's easier to do it with Reaper's brush-on sealer because it dilutes and cleans up with water. I usually add one drop of water to the Reaper sealer. That seems to make it a tiny bit more matte. You can also dilute paint with it but I find that it makes the paint dry much faster on the wet palette (turns the paint gummy). Your mileage may vary though.

      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.
      Darth Vader.
      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.
