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.

      Worked this one for a good, long while.  I am really happy with the cape and takign the time to layer it carefully.  I tried to use the method of using dark colors on the exterior areas and use brighter colors where to draw the eye.  I also am super happy with the edge highlighting and small details in this one.  It took me a while to do the layers, but the outcome was well worth it.
       
      I'm leaving the process below in photos on progress.  
       
      Let me know if you have any feedback or areas I could improve.

      It's the weekend, so you know what time it is...
       
      BATTLE REPORT!
       
      Along with all the Bones 5 I bought, there was a special on some Zombicide minis that were just too good to not buy.  This is one of the many that are in there, and I'm stoked to get this one done.
       

       
       
      Wins:
      * Continuing my use of drybrushing and being very successful.  Did an overbrush this time to start with a dark brown.  Then drybrushed to orange brown.  Then lightened up to buff.  Worked great!
      *  Saving the last color for last - flat flesh.  I mixed this with matte medium and watered it down to kind of filter it and just use it to highlight the base colors.  Big win!
      *  Went back around with some nuln oil to darken down just the deep recesses and area between the muscles.  Starting to use the washes sparingly and only in very specific areas.  Also getting a better grasp on using which wash for what job.  
      *  Used Agrax Earthshade to create a transition between the fur and the body.  Win!
      *  The fur was the same 2 base colors as the skin, but then lightened up with gray.  Then taking the gray up another notch with white very lightly.  Then EVEN LIGHTER adding white in peaks and areas near the face.  
      *  The mouth is a combination of brown, then a purple ink, then breast cancer awareness pink mixed with a little of that purple to get the tongue.  Looks nice and dangerous!
       
      Misses:
      *  I had another hard time with the nails on this guy.  I didn't want them dark, nor did I want them too dirty looking, so I had to use something lighter.  I feel like the grey is a fail, but it blends in.  
      *  Eyes were a mix of bone white, gray, and black dot.  Not impressed with it.  Something ominous and glowing would be better. 
      *  Got a little carried away on the werewolf's left ribcage.  I was using the drybrush to find the volumes, but thought, hey that needs some highlighting.  Wrong.  Right above the ribs there's a bit too much buff color.  Wah wah.
       
      This guy came out great.  Even with a few errors in there, I'm super happy with the results and love using the matte/paint mix to blend in.  
       
      As always - I love and grow from any feedback.  Send it my way - I gain a lot from it.

      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!
