Zombie Time! + yesterday's game

Further advancing in my plan to paint all my crews I started the Punk Zombies tonight.

I had some vague ideas of what I wanted to do with the skin but nothing certain. I didn't want to go for any green 'glowing' zombie scheme and experimenting on the belles showed me that I have a long way to go before I will paint skin properly so I put my vote on grey. And to have some otherworldly feel to it I mixed in some purple.
I'm happy with them so far, tho the supewhite light I use for taking the pics actually makes some shades disappear, they look a bit better in RL. The further use of VGC glaze-medium made the gradients really easy, so I might try to paint their swords nmm. I will need some more highlight on them and then I can paint some different hues on different parts; greens on the rotting sides and reds on the fresh cuts. I didn't really like the models first but I have to admid that they are real fun to paint, very well sculpted minis, so I recommend them to anyone who likes to paint dead stuff.

I had a game yesterday against Max von D. I brought my usual Redchappel Gang reinforced with the punks and Max played the Ortegas. You can find a very good narrative battle report on his site. (the link is on the right in the section 'Blogs I Follow' or just click here.)


  1. I like the purplish hue to their skin. I'd recommend playing around with other coloured glazes, like you mention. I did this with my 40K daemonettes and was really happy with the way it came out.

  2. Woah, those daemonettes are rerally good. Now I feel like these zombies look crap. xD
    Need. More. Practice.
