Black Plague Zombies

Recommended Posts

I have been busy but not posting threads recently. I have been using a range of models to play Lions Rampant and Dragon Rampant. For this I have used a combination of Bones and other figures. 


As I don’t have enough archers, I have opted to use some of the add on models from the Black Plague Kickstarter. 


First up is the paint scheme I opted to use. 




The idea is they are what remains of a lords retinue hence the uniform. 




at present I am painting up a batch of six models. 




The last phot shows base colours still being applied. Further highlighting takes places prior to a wash of Agrax Earthshade. 


As as always comments welcome.

Those are among THE COOLEST Deadites I have thus far seen. The paint scheme you chose is OUTSTANDING.

This will be a fine thread to follow for its inspirational value. Have FUN with them all!

Progress has been made on these although a bit slower then I would have hoped. But the remaining five zombie archers are painted similar to the first. 







Now all that is left is a coat of varnish and to sort out the base. 



The next batch is now on the painting table along with a few other models. 


First up up is a selection of zombies. These have been under coated black to hide an earlier attempt at painting them by my five year old son. 




also included is a larger zombie I had forgotten I had started to paint. 




as always comments welcome.

Well the hulk zombie is now complete. Happy with the tabletop standard. 





And here is a group shot of the work done so far. 




A few tufts on the base and they will be ready to use.

I like the idea that the Zcide abomination  (bulking zombie) grew so large it's skin ripped.

They are really nice sculpts as well. Plenty of detail for tabletop.

More progress on my zombies although not many photos of the steps. 










I am happy with the results of these. But to finish the full set for the game I may need to batch up and paint multiples in the same scheme.

      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.
