Tried zenithal priming these guys with an airbrush…results about the same as a rattle can, with way more cleanup. Don’t really want to spend any time learning airbrush skills, so be it.

I then base coated the skin for each as follows: Orc, Twilight Blue; Dwarf, Dark Skin; Goblin, mix of Ghoul Skin and Black Green. Leather, skirts and misc were base coated in Dusky Skin Shadow.

Glad to see you back at it Cash. I like the Twilight blue on the orc.

Thanks, folks! KB, the bluish orc is canon for the game. The gob is only slightly green in artwork, so I decided to go a bit greener for readability on the table.

 

Funny thing is, as I was looking at the sculpts when I first got in the game and was playing, I figured I could set apart the agents apart with red hoods and sashes...and looking at the art this morning to plot out my colors, bam...red hood/scarf.

 

Fun plastic, like all GG sets. The characterful sculpts make up for the issues with casting (and these are better than 1st season Zombicide I've been painting).

I did not notice the blue color in the art. I find the art nice, but very muted. So nothing really jumps out at me, but on the flip side it should allow for more artistic license on painting the minis. 

 

I can say after playing level one with six people that they need to be painted to keep track of the quantity of minis that are available for spawning.

I think I will also color code the base rims. It can definitely get chaotic quickly!

Finishing up the basecoats. Metals based in Dusky Skin Shadow or Stormy Grey. Hood/scarf in Bloodstain Red, dwarf’s beard in Shadowed Stone.

On to the flesh tones. For the dwarf, I used Muddy Soil, Dark Skin, Redstone Highlight, Tanned Skin and VMC Ivory. For the goblin, it was Black Green, Ghoul Skin, Moldy Skin and VMC Ivory. For the orc, Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, Snow Shadow and Ghost White.

Looking good!  I am terribly upset I missed out on Massive Darkness!  Oh well I have Rising Sun, Green Horde, and Bones to pay for and paint!

Continuing with the skirts, I finished out the Dusky Skin triad, to keep things simple. Similarly, I did the same using Clotted and Carnage Reds to finish the hood/sashes.

      It's sure been a while since I've broken out my brushes!  
       
      My copy of Massive Darkness, the new RPG light Dungeon game by CMoN, arrived the other day.  After looking at the sheer volume of plastic which was added to my collection, the painting bug hit me. These three are the first of about 8-10 ogres, giants, trolls I'll be painting up.  
       
      Comments and critiques are appreciated!

      Bunch of stuff just finished, and just photographed.
      The dwarves were a base coat and dip, and the Iron Golem was speed painted in about 2.5 hours.
      The rest I took my time. :)

      So I pledged to the Massive Darkness Kickstarter from Cool Mini or Not. Honestly I had forgotten how much swag I was going to get, as evidenced by showing up at the Post Office after work to pick up my box and it was huuuge! I dragged it to the train station somehow and my partner actually met me there so he could carry it home for me. (I swear love is a partner helping you carry your board games and supporting your obsession.) 

      The struggle is real!
       

      My room mate's cat was very interested in the content of said box. 
       

      Oh, this is why the box was so dang heavy. It has all of the things.
       

      I've never painted such a big pile of the same minis before, so I have separated my villains from the main box and am going to paint those first in a factory-line kinda manner so whip them all out fast. I also won't be as pedantic as I can be with my single minis, I want them to look good on the table but I won't get too caught up spending 4 hours painting one face.
      Think I may also invest in some spray-on primer, I am using the Reaper brush on primer (after filing down any mold lines, etc) which works well but takes some time to apply.
