....What's a zuvembie?

Zuvembie was a term that Marvel Comics used to avoid using the word Zombie, because Zombie was blocked by the Comics Code... and now Pathfinder has added them to the game.... Though I think that they are taking it from the Robert E. Howard story Pigeons from Hell. (There is a pretty major Robert E. Howard fan in Paizo's management team....)

 

It's like Gymkata showing up in a martial arts game....

      Hi all, I thought you might like to see the Mordheim gang I just finished, particularly because it features a bunch of Reaper figures. It's hard to believe I started this over ten years ago. They sat around for years with a good portion done, and lately I've had my old projects in my sites and am finishing them off.
       

      Mordheim Undead Gang
       
      I wrote about them and shared more pics in a blog post here: https://belchedfromthedepths.blogspot.com/2018/06/mordheim-undead-gang.html
       
      More pics of the reaper ones:

      Reaper Matthias the Twisted, Vampire
       
      I shared the vampire already here, so you may have seen him already. New backdrop with this pic for consistency.
       

      Reaper Gravedigger
      Reaper humans are too tall, IMO, to mix in generally with Mordheim figures, but the vampire and gravedigger are conscious exceptions as they fit right in towering over their fellows.
       

      There was no way I wasn't going to have this Reaper monkey in the crew. He's from a familiars pack.
       

      Reaper Ghouls and Ghast


      Reaper Hellhounds
      Last up are these Reaper hellhounds, or dire wolves, in Mordheim game terms. I was and am thinking of them as black dogs of yore like the barghest rather than wolves.

      I did these guys a few months ago.

      I challenged myself when I painted these guys and avoided using washes. I'm very happy with the turnout.
      I'd love to hear what you all think.

      Greetings!
       
      I've been working on this scary Reaper DHL Lich for a week or so. There is a rich blue glowy effect on his eyes but it doesn't seem to have come out that clearly on these pics.
       
      Anyway, thanks for looking!

      I painted this guy and he seemed like a real ambitious little skeleton. So I had a base I had started for a different project, but ultimately decided not to use, and he seemed worthy and I liked the rocks he came standing on anyways...

      This is the fun Bobby Jackson sculpt 02867: Matthias the Twisted, concept art by Talin. He(?)'s a lassic rat-lovin' nosferatu type vampire with an awesome wardrobe and a great pose.

       

       
        
       

       
      He has a lot of great details, including three tiny rats! (They are 28mm scale. They are really tiny.)
         
       
        
       
       
      WIP thread here.
