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.

Thanks. Everyone needs an undead pirate and after seeing Smokestacks finished ship, I need to assemble mine and paint a whole crew of undead pirates...they may just raid Glitterwolf's new world Conquistadors   ::D:

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.

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      In response to a local club challenge, I painted this dwarf in 3 colors chosen by a computer program.
      written by @SirLarpsAlot
       
      Golden Yelllow, Winter Blue and Leather Brown + B&W 
       
       
      edit, I do need to fix that eye...

      Can’t remember the mold, sorry...added some GW heads I had laying around. Needed an executioner for a game...seemed fitting
