Never was much into zombies to begin with but I've actually painted quite a few since last year. And I have to admit loving the process. They're very rewarding and quite forgiving and often have plenty of silly details that make most of their charm (how else could we love dead but walking rotting meat ?).
These are of course part of the zombies Kev Adams has sculpted a few years back now and ad always they have a lot of charm, mostly because the multitude of them means you can have plenty without having any doubles or even variants.
To be honest the painting was pretty straightforward, after a white zenithal coat over a black undercoat, I just placed my base colours and used all the washes I thought would work to pick some highlights and bring back a bit of contrast.
Add a good load of gore and fancy stuff on the base et voilà !
You might notice they vary greatly in size and bulk but humans do so I suppose their corpses shouldn't be any different !
That brings the total of painted models to 9 for this warband, meaning I still have some room to make a list for Mordheim and Frostgrave (the games they're intended for.
I still have plenty of archetypical undead creatures to paint and add so expect plenty more for this band ! There's a good vibe going on these days so I'll try and surf that wave to benefit from it as much as I can !
