So, I've decided to try my hand at batch and speed painting... First post here is of the raw product after warp corrections. Zombies, mummies, and skeletons from the 2012 KS...

Here we are base coated with a dark walnut brown. I like a dark base coat to hide recesses that I may not reach. I am going for tabletop quality so I'm trying not to kill myself on these minor baddies... Sorry for the distracting background and poor photos... Using my phone.

This is going to be fun to watch. Arise my minions! ARISE!

 

Seriously, speed painting skellies makes sense. I would say you might want to take some time to individualize the shield, but it depends on the end goal for the miniatures,

You picked a good group to speedpaint. Skellies and mummies are super fast, zombies a bit more time consuming (especially the "Thriller" ones with torn pants all over the place) but can still be done in pretty efficient batches, and the ghast, which I just painted up the other day, is surprisingly easy as well, as long as you aren't dead-set on getting the skin blending perfect. Looking forward to seeing how these guys turn out for you!

Thanks for the encouragement!

 

I had to quit last night after laying down the base coat. It took a little too long to dry, and I had to get sleep before work today. I hope to work on them more tomorrow. I've spent a grand total of about 30 min. on them so far. That time includes the time it took to fix the warped bits, but not the dry time. I think I sat there for a good half hour or more staring at them and surfing the forum here hoping they would dry.

      The flickering glow of the torchlight illuminates the dusty, hieroglyphic-covered walls of the forgotten tomb.  Moonglow clings to his hat as he carefully scans for signs of the hidden entrance.  A small indentation betrays the location of a door in the stone wall.  Carefully, the adventurer pushes his way through.
       
      The room is barren and dark, except for a single pillar of light shining down upon a small pedestal.  On top sits a small box.
       
      Moonglow carefully crosses the chamber and approaches the box.  He lifts the lid and peers inside.
       
      "Ah, there's my old minis!"
       
      Who's Your Mummy?
       
      Today I felt like sharing some more of my older work that hasn't been posted on the forums yet.  This time it's the Bones mummies that are getting the spotlight.

       
      These mummies were one of my first large painting projects.  It seemed impressive at the time to be working on 8 things simultaneously.  They're a bit dusty from all the drybrushing, but I think they look the part, and I'm a fan of the red-gold color scheme I settled on.
       
      More Photos beneath the spoiler:
       
      These were a fun little set and were perfect adversaries when my players visited the City of Time and sought to stop a Lich's return to power.  After failing once an resetting the clock, they had to fight their way through a mummy-filled temple complete with crawling claws and sand-filling rooms to stop the Mummy Lord from returning to his former Lich status.
       
      What's your favorite mummy encounter?

      Nolzur's do make a few great monster minis, even though most -if not all- of their humanoid minis are too small, weedy and have too shallow detailing for my liking. Here is one:

      Yep, a dead head.

      50mm base.
      The main colour is Citadel Contrast Plaguebearer flesh, the rest is regular paint.
       
      This mini was finished September 12th 2020.

      I have no idea who sculpted this, as WizKids do not -as far as I know- publish this info.

      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?

      Crawling back from the dead here with this fun little handful of zombies!  Added some gravestones to a few of them using popsicle sticks.  Just good ole' classic grave crawling zombies.  Went for a dusty color palette.
       
      Which one do you think turned out best?
