Quickshader applied.  Now I need to apply the anti-matte spray to remove the shininess, but not sure how to do that given that it's below zero outside.  If necessary, I'll wait until spring, I guess.  Or I could try it in my garage and potentially blow myself up from the fumes reaching the furnace.  Wonder how warm it needs to be outside...

It depends entirely on individual tolerances, but I find a thin layer of Reaper Brush-on Sealer over gloss coats does a fine job killing shine and can be used pretty much regardless of the weather.  I have no idea how it goes on over Quickshade, however.

 

If you ever feel like trying it, just make sure you wick away any excess sealer to avoid "hazy" areas on the model.  Don't let it pool!

Agreed, my season 1 Walkers all got x2 gloss coat followed by watered down brush-on sealer to dull them back down. Works great for table top. I also agree to not let the brush-on pool.

I followed the same painting tutorial to paint up some of my ZBP zombies. I used Dullcote spray to kill the shine but it didn't get a few of the hard to spray areas. I did those spots with a brush using the bottled Testors Dullcote. It can only be thinned with lacquer thinner or Testors own thinner. You also have to clean the brush with thinner. It works fairly well brushed on, but the bottled Dullcote is better through an airbrush.

 

Honestly, it's easier to do it with Reaper's brush-on sealer because it dilutes and cleans up with water. I usually add one drop of water to the Reaper sealer. That seems to make it a tiny bit more matte. You can also dilute paint with it but I find that it makes the paint dry much faster on the wet palette (turns the paint gummy). Your mileage may vary though.

      I know I messed up the timing this year, and worked on Deadcember instead of Orctober.   I wasn't feeling super-motivated by the small amount of unpainted Orcs I had, but from my Frostgrave II: Arcanic Boogaloo order had a ton of the living dead.  And one never has enough Zombies.

      However, it means there's plenty of spookybois to be shown off!

      The Draugr, mostly converted from the Fireforge Living Dead Peasants and Frostgrave Barbarians with some Warhammer bits.


       

       

       
       

       
       

       

       
       



      The Knockers, again Fireforge Living Dead Peasants with Warhammer Dwarf Miners hats and bits from Mantic and Mage Knight.
      I think I should go back and add big rucksacks...and redo the flames to be the correct order.




      Just plain Fireforge Living Dead Peasants, with the exception of a Frostgrave Cultist head for the Executioner.


       



       



       
       

       



      The Old Vet, a 3D print from Retro Quest



      Undead Pirates from EC3D "Depths of Savage Atoll"



      Former Imperials, converted from Warhammer Empire, Mantic Undead, and Frostgrave Cultists (Undead bits)




      Mostly Mantic.  Beware the spine whip!


       
       
       


      And lastly, when your Necromancer runs out of skulls, the Creeping Claws!  3D prints from Crippled God Foundry

      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?

      Here is a set of five zombies I painted up - first 2 are wizkids and I found I did not really like the sculpt, a sort of Elvis pirate looking zombie. Second three are a mix of a wizkid and two reaper zombies. Quick paint ups for the table - being fortune to have an in-house group to play with!

      So awhile back Uncle Adam on the YouTube mentioned something about making a Halloween themed killteam scenario. It seemed like a pretty good idea and after a lot of thought I decided to give it a try. How hard could it be to make a custom scenario for the spooky season? Having seen quite a few interesting wave based custom scenarios I knew that was the way I wanted to go. I also knew I wanted to use the undead (zombies and skeletons). 
       
      So the first problem is that I don't have enough zombies and skeletons for a wave based scenario. Not exactly wanting to break the bank for what will probably be a one off game I started looking for some cheap zombies. Turns out I didn't have to look hard or for very long. Zombies!!! Glowing Bag O' Zombies was just the ticket with 100 zombies (in four sculpts) for about $12 all in.

      Now they're a little on the small size, but again this is a one off game. Besides painting a hundred figures for a one off game I don't think my buddies will have too much to say. Armed with this bag and the few undead I already have I think I'll have enough enemies to go around. Or maybe I need another bag?
       
      I started out the night with two different sculpts with the simple intention of figuring out color schemes. First up was either a construction worker or a hunter, and honestly even after painting it I'm still not sure. As I blocked out the colors I was better able to see the figure's details, though I still don't know if it's a construction worker or a hunter. Would you call that a construnter?
       
      I hit everything minus the skin and gore when I had an idea. I just might be able to put that grey primer to work. With just a red wash I might be able to completely skip painting the skin and gore.

      I wouldn't exactly call it a success, but it's not terrible. This guy will probably squeak by as is but it looks like I'll be painting skin afterall. 
       
      Next up was a fellow carrying a severed leg. On this one I painted a skin tone but used just a wash again for the gore. 

      I think it looks better, but I'm still on the fence. 
       
      Though neither figure is finished I can't believe how quickly they painted up. Knowing that a batch paint was the next step I attached all the construction/hunters (construnters) to craft sticks. 
       
      Then seeing how much paint was leftover on my palette from this and a previous project I went ahead and basecoated all the pants. 

      I did not expect to do so much in just one night, but then again we all know I won't keep this pace.

      Paintedfor a painting league in another forum: 
       

      "Bring Out Your Dead!"
      I envision this as a wandering band who collects the dead. Sometimes they need to make ther cargo dead first. Being death warmed over themselves, they do not know what else to do with their unlives.
