Thanks Uber. For a lazy paint job, he really looks good at arms length. He may get recruited out of the toy box, have some blood affects added, and forced into Zombicide Black Plague service.  :devil:

Indeed several of my practice zombies have been recruited in just such a way.   After all who doesnt want a board full of zombies in thier game.  He does look cool as a zombie.   We should start an OPEN thread for our Zombicide zombies to give people ideas who want to paint up their zombies.

That is a good idea. I know I have a dozen different schemes under my belt, and I haven't even started with African based skin tone Zombies. It would be a good idea to keep the paint schemes better documented as well, since I have several skin recipes labled as "zombie" for the header...now which is which! <_< I think I have most of that in my cmon wip, but should condense.

I don't even like zombies and I think this is pretty cool. I love it when people think outside the box and do a different paint job on a mini. Great job!

Thanks Pochi. I was never a fan until the Walking Dead's portrayal of the struggle to survive to an adapting world...that and Zombicide is a fun and easy game to play. 

 

I painted up a wooden dock last night and each plank has a different zombie skin tone effect. Should be dry tonight and I will post it.

Undead Pirates are bound to show up in my Lost World.

Yours are welcome too.

I picked up some Army Painter Skeleton Bone primer last wekend as the sample color on the lid looks similar to my base coat color used on Hajad. So that called for some more experimentation. So I grabbed some Hirst Art planking and painted up a few different Zombie paint schemes. This also allowed me to compare the AP dark and strong tones as well as the difference between their inks and quickshade. I sprayed it down with Dullcote to knock the quickshade shine down to get a better comparison. So what do you guys think?

I really like the idea of a zombie pirate and I think you nailed the paint job.  

 

Gets me excited for the ghost pirates in Bones 4!

Thanks. This whole zombie skin experiment on proxy minis has got me a lot more excited about human sized Bones minis in general....oh and I may have started watching Black Sails on HULU. :poke:

I like the bloodless skin dark tone! 

Thanks for the input. I am leaning toward the black shades as well which surprises me. 2nd from the left (skeleton bone) and 1st from the right (bloodless skin) taking the lead for mr as they would be simplest. (No paint mixing).

I have preferred the inks for shading as they dry days quicker and are matte, but the quick shades look better for washes based on this experiment. They seem a bit less splotchy when they dry and the over all tone is a little less aggressive. i think the blotchyness shows up on Hajad in the pictures. I'm glad I did this little comparison as I learned some usefull things.

      “Off to off the wizard”
      The figures are from Reaper Bones KS3, “Chronoscope Wild West Oz”.  Since they all were armed, I see this as a sort of hit squad, hence the title.
      I based them on 30mm round display bases from Reaper, and I 3d Printed a 20mm round in a similar style for Toto.
      Since not only the Tin Man, but also the flying monkey are obvious metal robots, I think “Weird West Oz” or even “Steampunk Oz” would be a more fitting moniker.
       
      The miniatures are made in the slightly harder Bonesium, henceforth to be known as Better Bones™. Since the third Bones kickstarter, all Chronoscope Bones are coloured grey,
      The Flying Monkey, Lion, Tin Man and Scarecrow are sculpted by Bob Ridolfi, with Dorothy and Toto by Julie Guthrie. Only the Scarecrow seems to be released in Bones as of yet.

      Recently finished this for @Kangaroorex had a lot of fun playing with the spring theme and a monster. Also first time I've tried to build a flower (wire with paper wrapping for leaves, heavier paper for flower itself, and magicsculpt for some of the other details).

      About this project
      Pledge to fund The Assault Group's transfer of five 28mm Landsknecht Zombie miniatures, from White Knight's Miniature Imperium.
      With two large Kickstarters under our belt, and with a least two more to come to complete the transfer of White Knight's private range, we looked at what we still have left to release; Sea Elves, Dwarf Bear Knights on foot, the Land Griffons, all exciting stuff, but we have these great zombie minis, that didn't really fit in anywhere with anything else...
      ...grr... But, as these are excellent minis, and well-worth bringing fully to as large an audience as possible, we have decided to run them as a tiny (miniature even) Kickstarter all of their own.
      As the low Fund Goal indicates, we don't anticipate that this a large or difficult undertaking; the minis are made, the master mould prepared, and all we really need to do is make a new Production mould and cast the numbers required of this Kickstarter.
      ...ahhhh... Pledge Levels.
      Pledge £15, for one of each of the 5 different 28mm size white metal models. Pledge £45, for five of each of the 5 different 28mm size white metal models. ...roar...  
      Stretch Goals.
      £1000+ Add a Special Addition Freebie miniature, to all Pledges at £45+ £2000+ Add a Limited Edition Landsknecht Zombie all Pledges. (more details to follow)
      Mini Size.
      Scale shot. As you can see these are large 28mm, or 30mm model.
      ...mumble...

      I took the dragon challenge last year and chose this figure. Midway into the painting my vision changed entirely.  I still used the 3 chosen colors, but in a different way.  Very happy with how it came out.  Found the perfect base in my Bag of Crap, too. 
       

       

       
      Sorry, camera lighting is not good.  He is not so muddy looking in person.
