  1. So last weekend the KruleBear Cub wanted to paint his Bones zombies green (apparently Scoobie Doo dictates Zombie colors). So I took this as an opportunity for some bonding time and to try out some ideas for the Zombicide zombies. I did these using the zen of Bones...i.e. no flash or mold removal. Washed in soap and water, glued to bases for stability, primed, and then set up to base coat the skin. I painted the three on the left and the 4yo painted the two on the right. His skin looked as good or better than mine. The one he painted three different colors....as I learned from him that converted them from bad guys to good guys! I then base coated the clothes, hair, and bases. I slathered on Army Painter Dark Tone Wash (not the poly dip, but their corresponding water based wash). Once dried I rimmed the bases in black and put offwhite on the eyes. One of them I did a light drybrush of the base skin colors. All coated with clear poly followed by DullCote. I am happy with them....except for the flash and mold lines which would have taken a couple hours to clean up. I think I will use this method to start painting my Zombicide zombies to get some color on the board. This was a fast paint for me...probably 2.5 hours total including cleaning a kid and not including drying times.They are sitting on a Hirst Arts castle I have been building. Finally the Cub has been helping me punch out tokens for the five different Zombicide game versions I have and wanted to play zombies and good guys....we compromised to get a zombie game that was more age appropriate to a 4 yo....I introduce you to Candyland Zombicide where the good guys are protecting the various destinations!
  2. This is a recreation of our last session. The party was investigating an underground storage facility and ran across some toxic zombies. I heavily modified 80009 Rex Dark Future Hero, including a head swap from 50008 and a hand sculpted cross.
  3. Mantic Games have the licence for a skirmish level game set in the Walking Dead comics, kickstarter to commence in February. Live now https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/the-walking-dead-all-out-war-miniatures-game
  4. I haven't been posting much lately. Not sure why. But I finally finished up my Season 1 walkers. Thought I'd break my photo inertia with a group shot of them on a game board. Not my usual photo set up and not as clear as I could have wanted, but here they are.
  5. Zombicide Black Plague 63 Zombie Figures (No Necromancer, No Abomination, No Heroes) Date Range: Nov. 18th through 27th I will be prepping these miniatures so that I can begin painting after work on Friday Nov. 18th. I have taken off the entire week of Thanksgiving. Some of which will be spent with my family (24th - 26th) as my brother lives all the way across the state and we meet at my parents house every year for Thanksgiving. I will try to keep the ones I paint in the range of the 24th - 28th for the Paint Binge Challenge. As I only have 3 of the Bonus Challenge colors, I will still attempt to use them on several figures: 09279 Fresh Blood 09275 Vampiric Skin XXXXX October Pink These will be painted to tabletop specifications and I plan to use some ink washes on them as they are basic zombies. Will begin posting photos of progress on these guys on Friday the 18th. That round may not be super exciting as it will be the primer for them but it should pick up speed after that. As I usually use a ceramic tile to dry my figures on, I can already tell that is going to be an issue with these, so I will pick up a cheap cookie sheet (or two) so I can spread these guys out a bit and make it easier to move them around. I will also have to clear some shelf space as I don't currently have enough for all of these guys to fit in one location and be protected from the two cats that terrorize the house while we are away.
  6. After my exchange mini I wanted to touch work on something less taxing. So I decided to work on a few more Walkers. Also I decided to test out the camera on my new tablet. Not a whole lot of editing options, but I could crop the photos, and I think I got the white balance OK. Here is the group shot: While I finished the highlights on the skin of all 4, I only managed to get this guy's highlights finished. I still plan on putting down some washes to make the shadows darker, and bloody him up. But this is the 1st step in my Zombicide process. I'll see how it looks on my computer in a bit. Edit: I changed to topic title to reflect the change in WIP's Purpose. Later I will add the four unpainted models.
  7. Yes I am back with another installment of my ever growing horde of Zombicide Zombie Walkers. This go round I went with white as the primary color of choice. I even put a logo on the t-shirt of a walker to hint at what color I started with on the t-shirt. I then gave Choaswolf's dripping blood a try. I didn't have and Tamiya Clear so I used my blood recipe from the 1st groups of walkers to color the blood. Still needs some work on the technique but passable for table top. Here they are: Since the group is growing so much I decided to only show the walkers this round. Since I only have 1 fatty and 2 runner's painted I didn't think it would effect the group shot too much.
  8. Hi! Sharing some of the painting I did for Cryptozoic's new game (in kickstarter form with 5 days to go & funded), The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary. It's based off the AMC series The Walking Dead. I painted these for Cryptozoic Entertainment's display booth at San Diego Comic Con & they will be at their booth at Gencon. I'm a huge fan of the series in both tv & graphic novel formats so this was really exciting to work on! More pictures are also here: http://minicreatures.blogspot.com/ And check it out! The actors with the miniatures at SDCC! Totally cool! Thanks for looking! :)
  9. Another batch of Undead, this time from Johnny Borg Castings "Dungeon Monsters" Kickstarter. The horde: Dead Sonja: Halfling Skeleton: Skeletal Elf Ranger: Dwarf Zombie: Dwarf Skeleton: Goblin Skeleton: Zoblin: Orc Skeleton (with odd Mickey Mouse gloves): Zorc: Rattlin' Ratling: Rotting Ratling: A verminous duo: Undead Lizards: Skeletal Lizardfolk: Zombie Lizardfolk:
  10. Well I managed to finish up another group of four walkers. Today's color is purple. As I also have the cloak of another figure I'm working on in purple as well. The gore effect on these walker's was achieved by dipping the bristles of a tooth brush into the blood color and then spaying them on the Walkers. Not a bad effect. Thought I would try different effects with each group for varieties sake. The Fatal Femmes: The Grungy Guys: The Current Completed Hoard: Thanks for looking. Still have 5 more groups of 4 walkers to go.
  11. Falstaff (or Vlad the Impaler / Dracula) I used for the skin the paints 09274: Vampiric Shadow 09275: Vampiric Skin 09276: Vampiric Highlight I'm not really happy about it. I do not see much of it in the face. (I will try to make better pictures without flashlight). On the hands I used a grey wash
  12. I decided to make my Walker blocks a little smaller from here on out. Groups will be of 4, since that is the number of different models. As I posed my group I noticed something interesting. When posed certain ways it almost told a story of Zombie Romance. Young Zombies in the blooming romance: Next a Zombie Couple that are having a bit of a dispute: And of course a group shot of my painted collection:
  13. Not so much a "Show-off" as a "Hey, these things got some paint on them, and I'm tired of looking at them so they're done now." First up are the, uh...disco zombies: I'll be perfectly honest, I'm not a big fan of this particular sculpt, and it did not translate to Bonesium well (at least, the ones from the KS didn't; it's entirely possible the quality has improved since then). There were mold lines all over, plus some mold slippage as well, which made getting the primer coat of Brown Liner a little difficult. So, they just got a very simple basecoat+drybrush treatment, because I didn't feel like expending the energy to make them look any nicer. Colors used: (skin) 09084 Pale Lichen, drybrushed 09149 Moldy Skin (eyes) 09402 Heraldic Red (base) drybrushed 09086 Stone Grey (cloth, from left to right) 09419 Tropical Blue, 09236 Black Green, 09014 Grass Green, 09242 Carrot Top Red, 09240 Royal Purple I did find it amusing after I finished the guy wearing orange that he looked like he used to be wearing a construction jumpsuit. :) Next is two George zombies: I like this sculpt quite a bit, but unfortunately, since I was painting them at the same time as the disco zombies, their paint jobs were collateral damage from my meh-ness about the previous zombies. Same colors as above, except 09115 Ritterlich Blue and 09672 Briar Rose were used for the cloth, and 29830 Ruddy Brown for the hair. Not sure what I used as highlights on the cloth, I just grabbed a bottle at random of the right color in a lighter shade and mixed it with the base color. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  14. Here is more Zombicide Walkers I've been slowly working on in spurts. They are tabletop Quality (to me). Maybe I should make the next batch bloodier. And a photo of the small collection I've managed to paint. PS: After all this recent talk about table top and speed painting threads, I think I might test myself to see how quickly I can finish one.
  15. And grizzly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom. Poor Kirk.
  16. I'm not quite happy with these; I was using a limited palette to evoke the cartoon show, but the figures kind of demand a bit more. Perhaps I'll go in there and tweak the skin tones a tad, do some more highlighting and shading on the clothes. And Fred's eyes need help. The facial expressions are awesome. Minis by Kev White and Hasslefree.
  17. So I started the year off with some speed paints of some of my zombicide figures. Zombie #1 was a base coat wash and highlight method. I didn't really like how it came out. But it is only a tabletop. Zombie #2 I decide to give the shaded basecoat method another go. I like how it turned out overall. So I decided to continue with that method and go with a blue theme for the rest of them. Zombie #3: Zombie #4:
  18. Here are a few more shots of the current selection of models I am working on, so far I am finished the models I got for Christmas which jumped the painting queue and were based and undercoated over the holiday. First up we have 4 zombies some are showing a bit too much detail for a closeup shot, so I group shot will have to do. Next a young barbarian, this model will be used in Frostgrave along with a lot of my current models. And next up we have Big Boris, if ever you needed a Barbarian for your Frostgrave group I don't think you can do much worse then Boris, although he is rather large and that will make him quite a target for archers and other ranged attacks. As always comments of suggestions welcome, I try and post these as a WIP but I get carried away and the next thing you know they are almost complete.
  19. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. I must say that I enjoy painting the Shadows of Brimstone miniatures, even though many have soft details. Here are the remainder of the Hungry Dead, the last 7 of the 16 in the game. Hatless Cowboys, bearded prospectors and saloon ladies in their best dresses have all succumbed and become the Hungry Dead. (Which is such an evocative name, especially as other such adjectives such as "Living" "Evil" and "Walking" are taken.) You know that you don't want them to get close to you.

  20. This year the minis I manage to paint will all count towards the resolutionary challenge. As per the resolutionary painting challenge guidelines, I will post them here, and link in my post in the challenge thread. from the lead age strata of Ye Pile of Olde... Some lead miniatures from the 80s, Citadel Zombies. A bit worse for wear, one of them is missing an arm. Luckily no sign of any lead rot or such. They were taken out of their pack ages ago, which probably saved them. But since these are zombies of the not-entirely-fresh variety, I don't see the missing arm as much of a problem. One of the others have probably had it for lunch. Zombies Warhammer (Oldhammer) Citadel Miniatures Lead metal from the 80s 25mm bases
  21. Finally got back to doing conventions this weekend, with CelestiCon in Fremont, CA. Here's a glimpse at some stuff we had on the table. Most of what we had this weekend was scratch-built, or kit-scratched, which is I guess what you would call it when you borrow one piece from a model (like a GW crater) and scratch build on top of it. Not quite a kitbash. But anyway, most of it was just made by hand.
