I am still not happy with the skin tones I have come up with for my basic Zombicide zombies... Most have been too green. So I wanted to try something more of a pale skin to grey color.. And believe it or not I am out of Bones zombies and that's to experiment on. So I found Goldar who is my proxie zombie. 

What do you guys think? I am actually happy with this one for two reasons: I painted him I about two hours total and I think this skin tone will work for my standard Zombicide zombies. It is VMC 2 parts basic skin tone to 1 part sky grey. Then a light wash of Army Painter dark tone Ink. Btw... I am going to stick with their ink since it dries in less than an hour, rather than two days for their quick shade dip.

 

Once I get a Caucasian zombie skin I like, then I will have to work on an African zombie skin tone to add some variety.

If you glaze a skintone over it like rosy higlight, or Fair skin you might give it more of a fresh dead look.

 

I think you are correct. I may try using the brown ink instrad of the dark tone too. The dark tone i essentially a black.  I may also up the skin ration in the base mix. For the mob of zombicide minis I am hoping to keep the paint job fairly simple, then focus more attention on the survivors. Of course by the time I find the magic recipe, I will have probably had enough time to paint them with normal layering.

Reaper's new sepia wash is a nice alternative and close to the wash I created for my zombicide mini's I painted up.  RMS Vapiric Skin is a nice pale skin color you might consider if you use Reaper paints.

I think you are right about the vampiric skin. I considered using that and it looks close to what I ended up with. I don't have the Reaper sepia wash, but have similar. I was hoping to use the AP urethane quickshade due to the LARGE VOLUME of zombicide minis, but I am not sold on the two colors I bought (it also annoys me waiting two days for it to dry). 

 

Thanks for the suggestions it is much appreciated....I may have to sacrifice a succubi and shaolin monk for zombification trials.

      I finished some townsfolk recently, they snuck into the queue ahead of my halfpainted drow squad. 😮

      Here are 2 Bones 3 ogres I finished in the last few months, Reaper Ogre Matriarch (SKU 77568) and Ogre Chieftain (SKU 77566) . The detail on the goblin was very soft, and my painting progress stopped for a couple of months.  But now they are finally ready for some tabletop fun.

      This is the Reaper Bones Familiar from the Stone and Familiar set (SKU 77390).  He will be an important bard NPC in a Savage World game I am hoping to run sometime soon.

      One the past few weeks I have been working on the Zombie Dwarf Thanes from the Bones 5 "The Dwarf King's Crypt" Encounter set.   I ordered two of these Encounter sets, as I wanted doubles of some of the scenario pieces, as well as double the 3 zombie figures that came with the Encounter.
       
      To help make their appearance seem more varied, I swapped a hand between Thane #1 and Thane #2.   I also trimmed the circlets off some of their heads to try and make them look more like average Dwarves.
       
      (Edit: For some reason he photos uploaded out of order, so the backs of Thane #2 are shown after Thane #3 fronts, and the backs of Thane #3 are shown after Thane 2's fronts.)

      I was focused on speed, not detail.  This was trying to work them with as few colors as possible.  The more I look at them, the more they look lik ea value sketch more than a painted model, but I'm looking for where to go with them.
       
      Another thing I need to know, is what do you all do with eye sockets?  How do you paint them or what do you do with them?
       
      For the woman zombie, I used an ink pen and am kind of miffed that it turned out than other eyes I put way more time into.  I know I can use this in conjunction with painting, but just dotting it came out pretty believable.  I think some of that is the fact it's a dead stare, so of course, just a wash and a dot does fine.  I would be curious to know how any one else uses the pens and paint in combo.
