  1. Design Great Grimoire Base Design CastnPlay. Printed on my Elegoo Mars ( basic but still going strong!) This is the first Zombie Deckhand for my Vampire Coast Army WIP here: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/97971-vampire-coast-army-and-other-pirates/page/2/#comments
  2. I've been working on this guy for the better part of a month and just finished him tonight. He was a blast to paint, and I'm pretty happy with the finished product. The green wrappings could have probably used some more intense highlighting, but I'm not gonna lose sleep over it. Initially, I wasn't a big fan of the vultures (I put them off until the very last phase of painting). But, one I got some paint in them, they grew on me.
  3. The Zombie Horde from Warlord Games Project Z game. Skin was airbrushed with a mix of Garage Kits USA Predator Flesh and Light Green, then washed with Secret Weapon Concrete and highlighted as necessary. I'd picked up three sets of Pro Acryl paints, including the "Transparents" and decided to try those out on these, and the rest of the Project Z figures. I'm guessing that the transparents are their version of Contrast paints. They worked really nice, and the transparent White turned out to be really useful in altering the tint of the other transparents. Sped things up quite a bit! All of these are painted to a "Three Foot Fabulous" demo/tabletop standard.
  4. I was focused on speed, not detail. This was trying to work them with as few colors as possible. The more I look at them, the more they look lik ea value sketch more than a painted model, but I'm looking for where to go with them. Another thing I need to know, is what do you all do with eye sockets? How do you paint them or what do you do with them? For the woman zombie, I used an ink pen and am kind of miffed that it turned out than other eyes I put way more time into. I know I can use this in conjunction with painting, but just dotting it came out pretty believable. I think some of that is the fact it's a dead stare, so of course, just a wash and a dot does fine. I would be curious to know how any one else uses the pens and paint in combo.

  6. One the past few weeks I have been working on the Zombie Dwarf Thanes from the Bones 5 "The Dwarf King's Crypt" Encounter set. I ordered two of these Encounter sets, as I wanted doubles of some of the scenario pieces, as well as double the 3 zombie figures that came with the Encounter. To help make their appearance seem more varied, I swapped a hand between Thane #1 and Thane #2. I also trimmed the circlets off some of their heads to try and make them look more like average Dwarves. (Edit: For some reason he photos uploaded out of order, so the backs of Thane #2 are shown after Thane #3 fronts, and the backs of Thane #3 are shown after Thane 2's fronts.) Thane #2 Thane #1 Thane #3 The whole shambling gang
  7. It's the weekend and that means it's time to paint! Got two zombies up for some WIP. I'll just start by saying - leave me any feedback you've got. I'm open to hearing and improving from it. BATTLE REPORT! #1 - Buster Jaws Wins: * Really taking to this whole wet blending thing. I used two colors further apart from each other in value and tried to test myself to push them together. There's two different sets of this in both the pants and the shirt. * I am trying to keep the 'mother color' as I've heard it called in mind. Since it's Halloween month, I figured orange would be a good one. It was hard to add it in to nearly all the colors, but it did come out well. * Trying to push the bloody look on his shirt with some Magenta ink looks nice and fun (and gross). My daughter was not fond of these two, which tells me I'm on the right path. * Setting a goal of about 30 minutes for this was a tough one, but I think given the time I tried to do it in, limiting my palette, and pushing the colors worked great. Misses: * Skin color. It's just not dead enough. Need suggestions on your favorite zombie and ghoul skin recipe. * Hair. What the hell does dead hair look like? How can I make it look more "fresh out of the grave" and less "fresh out of the salon"? * I attempted value sketching with ink and then overlaying a really lite wash of paint. Not sure I dig it, but it worked. Barely. No pun intended. You can see the value sketch below. Mr. I Suck At Dabbing Wins: * This was actually the first of the wet blends so it didnt' get pushed as far, but the blending still worked great. Speed, speed, speed! * Knowing I have to give up a little of my detail to get a faster result is a good balance. * I learned that this was where I could watch where the folds in the clothing were and step up the highlights in those area, which I applied to my following model. Misses: * Eyes, hair, and skin again. Not sure what I should have done different, but I know I should have done something. Here's the progress pictures (numbered) \
  8. I made this piece of scenery for whenever I get around to playing some kind of zombie game. It's just foamboard, dowels and coffee stirrers. The image was downloaded, printed, stuck on, and then ruined with lots of washes and the blunt edge of an X-acto knife (Quatro was a soft drink sold in the UK in the 80s; I wanted a bit of a retro look). I added some random graffiti to the back. It was mainly painted with cheap craft paints. The junk on the base is by Reaper, TTCombat and Debris of War, as well as a couple of stones from my drive.
  9. Finished the Muumuu Zombie. Was going to do just a oozy decomposing effect to the mini. But just kept that to the wound on the back. Decided after doing a quick scratch built base with a blood pool that she'd be standing over. That she needed to look like she'd just fed on some juicy morsel.
  10. KS : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-undead-or-alive/ Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.
  11. So I finished the Undead Regiment. Background story.. the Vampire Queen lost a big battle, fled to a swamp/jungle area. Subdued the swampfolk and now faces a rebellion. Some swamp creatures follow her, others oppose her. Here is the full regiment. Mixed Manufacturers. Mixed types of Undead. I will post them separatly or in smaller groups for better pics of them all. I will try not to flood the forum, so today the regiment and the first solo/smaller groups. The rest will follow shortly. The Vampire Queens heraldry is red and purple so all the Undead have this colours somewhere. Also as a sign she is mistress of the swamp, her heraldry has a snake in it, variations are found on the shields and banner. Now the horde:
  12. Greetings & Happy Halloween!! Bonnie would like some candy.......... Thanks for looking!
  13. Painted some zombies for my Rangers of Shadowdeep games, they were quick and fun to paint
  14. I've got more dead things for you today. @Igormortis isn't the only one looking for some dirty dead! Here's my little collection of swamp zombies. The crowning jewel of this set is of course the Dreadmere Wight from Bone 4 Dreadmere. He's got plenty of character packed into such a simple model. I love him. Along side him we have a repainted Zombie from D&D Giants of Legend prepaints (#40). I've had this guy for ages, way before i learned to play D&D or ever picked up a mini brush. His paintjob was pretty bland and I definitely think I (un)livened him up. Would make a great shaman-type mini. And filling out the horde we have the Zombies from the Castle Ravenloft board game. Again. Rather bland sculpts, but I like them a lot more now. Their weird posture was the inspiration for the swamp theme as I imagined them pulling themselves up out of the muck. All together, they're a fun thematic set and add for some variety to my dusty Graveyard Zombies. Which one do you like best?
  15. Painted this lovely lady during a local mini-con and painting event early this year (pre-covid). I tried for different colors of skin on her various parts, and a slinky satin fabric for her dress. She is checking out a new crypt I did as part of the "craft paint" challenge this spring.
  16. Greetings! Vietnam Zombie with gun from Citadel Miniatures of old! This was a limited release which was linked with both the Chainsaw Warrior board game & 40K Chaos. Thanks for looking!
  17. I mostly modelled this off Michael Proctor's paint job, and used it as an exercise in learning to push contrast and glaze unlike colours. The photos make the colours seem to little more vibrant than they are in real life. Overall very pleased with the result!
  18. Bob Ridolfi's Graveflesh Servant (aka Bride of Frankenstein) in Bones. I tried to get some different flesh tones on her various parts, do some bruising at the wounds, and not-exactly-sheer fabric effects. Spent far less time on it than I should have.
  19. Keeping with my prior undead dragon being a reanimated metallic, I decided to paint up the Bones 4 Zombie Dragon as a copper dragon. I surgically removed its raised claw to fix an issue I had with my Ebonwrath, and sculpted a ruined claw on in its place here. Decided that the rot in the dragon would be where the verdigris of a copper dragon should be manifested, and went to town. Figure is mounted on a 4" diameter wooden base. Camera images had some trouble getting the color right. The closest are probably the first and last ones. As always, enjoy, and feel free to let me know what I can improve.
  20. I found it really hard to light and photograph such a tall model, I'll have to get him off his shelf and try and take better pictures at some point in the future. I chose the bright red tongue to tie in with the reddish muscle and the red roses (which are a theme of my Warhammer Vampire project) as a spot colour.
