03601: Ronnie and Reggie, Zombies

Recommended Posts

Just a pair of rotty zombos I painted up in late 2014 or early 2015. I like them because of the period inspecificity: they work equally well as peasant fantasy zombies or pulp-era modern zombies.

The crouching one (Reggie?) looks particularly famished for braaaaaaaaaaiiiiiins.

Your zombies totally creep me out!

Thank you all! That's the intent...they're almost entirely painted in various old washes, some of which indicate a slick rottenness and some of which impart more of a bog-mummy tone.

      For the better part of this year, I've been going through something of a creative funk and it's been driving me a bit mad. (well more than usual anyway) So after thinking upon it for awhile, and taking the advice of the opening track of White Zombie's Astro Creep 2000, (Perhaps you'd better start at the beginning...) I've decided to embrace the madness....
      By the power vested in me by the Great Pumpkin I hereby declare it to be 1996. The world is a saner place and I've just gotten my mitts on the first minis that weren't part of a boxed set or boardgame and soon shall rise a mighty skeletal horde. (To those of you who may not have been alive in '96, fret not I have decided that you exist. Ia! Ia! Ingenti Cucurbia!)
      Anyway, first up are these guys.

      A Heartbreaker Miniatures Army Pack that I think might be Phil Lewis sculpts. Like all of my older metal Undead, they were given a bath in Simple Green awhile back. The original Undead army had been repainted several times over the years, not yet knowing about the wonders of the Green, they had several rather thick layers on them from this. So the decision to restart from a clean slate on the whole lot was quite easy.

      An Armorcast Ruined Mausoleum. Also painted several times, but I'm leery as to how the Green would react with the resin. But even with the new black undercoat, the detail isn't obscured that I can see. Now to find my Painting Flannel Of Necromancy...

      Miskatonic's most intrepid researchers go to the ends of the earth for their research projects--and some ends are more terminal than others! 
      Here's Reaper's Antarctic Explorer, 80072. (Though I'm sure he could work as an Arctic explorer, too, in a pinch.) Bearded, bespectacled, and well-insulated, this guy is perfect for the Pabodie Expedition. The barrel of his rifle was unfixably bendy, so I replaced it with a portion of straight-pin. Used the same color scheme as my Zeppelin crew. 

      I've said it before and I'll say it again: the Arctic ice holds Santa's Workshop and Captain America. The Antarctic ice holds shoggoths and the THING. Don't go digging in Antarctica.

      "The sun never sets in January this far south, but my chronometer indicated I had been hiking for eighteen hours. In all that time, I could see no man or beast, but the persistent cries of "Tekeli- li! Tekeli-li!" sounded bleatingly in my ears."


      "The monolith must have been in this valley for uncounted ages, exposed to sub-freezing temperatures since the advent of the glaciers, yet it was warm to the touch. No snow stayed on it."


      "Day 6 in frozen hell. The katabatic storms have reduced visibility to all but nil. Have concluded Man has no place in interior of this blasted continent, here at the bottom of the world."

      Luke and Elise thought they could escape the zombie apocalypse by heading to the countryside. Oh dear.
       
      These minis don't have names, so I christened one as Luke because his open white shirt and blond hair remind me of Luke Skywalker on some of the original Star Wars posters and Elise got her name because the Cure's "Letter to Elise" was playing as I was finishing her paint job.
       

       
      My girlfriend took one look at these and said, "If you put them opposite each other it looks like they're in a dance-off".
       

       
      And she's right.

      Well, I managed to fight my way back into hobbying...at least a little bit.  The wraiths were some of the minis I was anxious to get at, so I wasted no time.
       
      I thought about doing the expected (black and grey), but that left me uninspired.  So I thought about ROY-G-BV-ing them.  But I didn't have any OYs that I thought would be appropriate.  So I just muddled my way through.
       
      My apologies to Bob Ridolfi, your sculpts are wonderful and deserve better than what I can throw on them.
       

      The new wood paints were brought out to work the haft.  
      Muddy Soil served as the base for Bloodstain Red and Clotted Red
       

      Nightmare Black followed by Carbon Grey and Glacier Mist.  This was a little too close to the Blue Greys triad, I was hoping for something further off.
       

      The robes were started with Coal Black, and then hit with Peacock Green.  Brilliant Green finished them.  The tabard was started with Pure Black, followed with Stormy Grey, and then finished with Cloudy Grey.
       

      The robes were started with Pure Black, then followed up with Dark Elf Shadow and Dark Elf Skin.  This is one of my favorite combinations.
       

      I love the Blue Greys triad.  Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, and then a 50/50 mix of Twilight Blue and Snow Shadow.  I think this is my favorite.
       

      I wanted a monument reminiscent of marble, so I started with Leather White, Pure White, and finished with Sparkling Snow.
      The robes were done with Regal Purple, Monarch Purple, and Royal Purple.  The difference is a little more obvious in person, but I was having troubles with the camera.

      One of my favorite Fantasy races are the Undead.
      This thread will be dedicated to all the beautiful female vampires/necromancers/ghosts and apparitions.
      I will also include all my Sophie minis..
       
      Here are the girls I have painted before to show what this is all about, soon more Undead / Evil Sisters will follow.
       
      EDIT - Changed the Name of the thread from the Alluring Death to Ladies of Death since not all are actually Undead.
