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:

Thanks Chaoswolf.  I may have figured out a shortcut to get a similar skin tone....developing :ph34r:

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.

      @Everyone :: Please feel free to share your pix of creations from the Bones 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...

      Took a break from other things to get back to basics, and also try a few things out. Here’s Feiya:
       

       
      This was a quick and simple job, an attempt to work on picking out details as well as experimenting with various paints. I decided to go with assorted primary colors mostly (as I don’t really have much else). You can’t really see the highlights in these pics, mostly because I hardly did any.
       
      I started with a wash of Brown Liner, which turned out surprisingly well. Leaf Green was used for the cape and Blood Red on her leathers. I think she’s holding a fireball but I went with Sapphire Blue, so now it’s more of a Faberge egg. The wrappings on her staff are Sun Yellow with some whites, and boots and head jewelry were done with metallics. Her socks are Linen White, but white cloth is apparently something I need more work on. Finally, the base was given a layer of Ginger Cookie over the liner.
       
      It isn’t the prettiest work ever, but it turned out better than I’d expected. Most importantly, it gave me an idea of what to work on and which colors I’ll need to think about acquiring in the future.

      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!

      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*)
