Holy Carp! Those look Fantastic!

 

Seriously. Wow! ::o:

 

I've got the Zombicide series of games and I know these minis. They are small with realistic proportions making them seem even tinier.

I can't believe you were able to paint them up to this level.

These do look amazing. I think what jumps out at me the most is that the pants and shirt especially on the first two look so incredibly realistic. Very nice work.

 

When you say freehand wood grain, do you mean that you freehanded those lines on the baseball bat there?

Yep, that and the sheriff's gun stock. The gun stock came out a bit too subtle for photos, though. It could have used a third step of highlight, really. I've been working on wood grain on and off since the summer with the pirate flag pole. Good project for brush control and adding in detail.

 

The hand grip and bat are all based in the same color (leather brown). Then I mixed in yellowed bone and finally a pass of straight yellowed bone to do the bat. The hand grip I left leather brown as the highlight and shaded down (with some brown on the palette, those browns all started to get mixed together at some point!). I like the trick of the shadow of the lighter area being the highlight of the darker area, something I'm trying to play with more.

Nicely done, as always, Cash!

 

If you get the urge, I have some Zombicide minis that could use some amazing paint jobs too...

Hold on! Hold on! Back away! :angry:

 

If that's going to happen there should be some kind of line for that. Like in order of seniority, or painting backlog, or... or...something else that gives me priority. :poke:

I vote for the order of request. That makes you second. If it makes you feel better, the school-yard kids seem to think mine will be worst and yours will be the best. Now, who is next and do they already have a hairy chest or is Cash going to paint it?

Guys, guys...I have one more season 1 survivor, then the expansion and season 2, then the season 2 KS survivors....and that's before I paint any zombies or zombivores!

 

So sure, send me your minis and I'll get them back to you by 2083. I'll be a hundred thirteen, but hey.

First up is Josh:

Painting the hoodie I couldn't resist a nod to Belichick. The casting of the left eye pitted, so I just did the best I could there. [ ... ]

 

Re: left eye ... Zombie damage.

      Fun fact! Like most zombicide minis, this sculpt was inspired by a fantasy character. In this case it is Isabeau from the movie Ladyhawke played by Michelle Pfeiffer. 
       
      I've painted this mini to be my new ranger named Michelle in my Rangers of Shadowdeep campaign. I had a lot of fun highlighting her dress. Hope you like her!

      These teeny tiny butterflies from Wicked Elf are awesome!  They are super easy to use since they are vellum and not paper.  Nice and durable, easy to paint.  I was really pleased with how they came out for this project.

      After a long wait, my Kickstarter pledge finally made it to my doorsteps. I know what you are thinking:
      "Didn't you just move?" Yes, yes I did.
      "You haven't finished Black Plague yet!" Also 100% correct - and at some point I will certainly finish it up, but the cult of the new calls! 
       

       
      Now on one hand, this project will be a little easier as the aliens will predominately be toned with a single color with the attention being paid to the little details on them. It won't be as intensive of a slog compared to painting individual outfits of clothing.
       
      On the other, we have a bunch more specialty aliens and a slew more heroes to go through. Who knows if I will get around to painting them all! So this weekend's plan will be doing some prep work, priming and whatnot on a few of these.
       
      As always, comments and critiques are welcome - I am here to learn. My goal for larger projects such as these is Tabletop "Plus" (not quite display, but a little above a standard base/wash/highlight) for the hero and big units, and tabletop standard for the rank-and-file units (totally fine with base coats + washes + a few details here and there). Ultimately these are game pieces that will be played, so I don't want to agonize over anything getting messed up too badly.

      Stole my brother's mini from out of his house the last time I was there and painted it for him.  Built a much more deserving base for this fierce Zombicide boss with a vicious streak a mile wide.
