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.

      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!

      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?
