I am still not happy with the skin tones I have come up with for my basic Zombicide zombies... Most have been too green. So I wanted to try something more of a pale skin to grey color.. And believe it or not I am out of Bones zombies and that's to experiment on. So I found Goldar who is my proxie zombie. 

What do you guys think? I am actually happy with this one for two reasons: I painted him I about two hours total and I think this skin tone will work for my standard Zombicide zombies. It is VMC 2 parts basic skin tone to 1 part sky grey. Then a light wash of Army Painter dark tone Ink. Btw... I am going to stick with their ink since it dries in less than an hour, rather than two days for their quick shade dip.

 

Once I get a Caucasian zombie skin I like, then I will have to work on an African zombie skin tone to add some variety.

Very nice!

 

If you glaze a skintone over it like rosy higlight, or Fair skin you might give it more of a fresh dead look.

I think you are correct. I may try using the brown ink instrad of the dark tone too. The dark tone i essentially a black.  I may also up the skin ration in the base mix. For the mob of zombicide minis I am hoping to keep the paint job fairly simple, then focus more attention on the survivors. Of course by the time I find the magic recipe, I will have probably had enough time to paint them with normal layering.

Good job!

He works well as a zombie, and the skin tone looks good.

Reaper's new sepia wash is a nice alternative and close to the wash I created for my zombicide mini's I painted up.  RMS Vapiric Skin is a nice pale skin color you might consider if you use Reaper paints.

I think you are right about the vampiric skin. I considered using that and it looks close to what I ended up with. I don't have the Reaper sepia wash, but have similar. I was hoping to use the AP urethane quickshade due to the LARGE VOLUME of zombicide minis, but I am not sold on the two colors I bought (it also annoys me waiting two days for it to dry). 

 

Thanks for the suggestions it is much appreciated....I may have to sacrifice a succubi and shaolin monk for zombification trials.

      I had a really good time with this kit, and I feel like I learned a lot from it, too.  Win-win!
       

      This is probably my best paint job to date, and it was pretty cool to see those highlights and shades build up layer by layer.  Similar to the skeleton in the first kit, this one was quite fun to work on despite being a fairly simple model.
       

      If the wizard was the best paint job, this one was the most fun.  Sadly, something about the posture just confounded me when it came to trying to take good pictures of it.  Also, those lips
       

      I was a bit sloppy with this one, probably because I wanted to just finish with the kits and get on to doing my own minis again.  Nevertheless, it was a neat challenge to try doing so many layers of colors for this one, and if nothing else, that left eye is probably the best eye I've painted (right one's a bit of a mess ).
       
      On the whole, I'm very grateful for all of the people who suggested getting the LTP kits.  Definitely a great couple of learning tools.  Many thanks!

      Another set complete!  This time it's a group of Eastern Fantasy themed adventurers and encounters.  Almost all the minis are from the third Bones Kickstarter, with the exception of the Tengu/Kenku Monk armed with kamas.  She's from Stonehaven.


      The group:


       
       
      The Oni:


       
       


       
       
      The Kitsune.  The male is one of my favorites...I hadn't even noticed the sake glass in his hand  until I started painting!  That and his swagger make for a very characterful sculpt.


       

       
       
      Just some Human Monks:


       



      The Kenku/Tengu:


       

       
      This is the non-Reaper one, a Monk from Stonehaven Miniatures:


       
      Flock!

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share pix of creations from the Conversion Classes in this thread. 
       
      I will **start:
       

      As a beginning exercise Gene Bobby and Jason had everyone pick a body, add one thing, and pass it to the right. That was repeated three times. These were the result. 
       
      **Be warned I have moar pix...

      Idk if this is a KS model or one I randomly bought to fill out our need for giant monsters that are not cardboard cutouts. Anyway, he's done. He was going to maybe go in a desert diorama but I decided against (he didn't end up fitting). I might go back over his claw bits again tho, they seem a lot darker in the pic than they do IRL but theyr'e still just not quite right. Anyway, he's based on a couple of RL pics, mostly going for a shiny red carapace kind of idea. He's not in my WIP thread, so just a quick note, I undercoated him mournfang brown (a red brown GW colour) and then built up to the red with reaper's bloodstain red and later clotted red (my absolutely fave triad *ever*)

      Another batch of deadly forest encounters, the kind you'd find protecting Castle Stoneskull!

      All miniatures are from the Castle Stoneskull set from Bones III.


       
      Vegepygmies:


       

       
       
       
      Plant Dragon:


       

      Death Lilies or something like that!
