C18 Zombies, again...

Just a quick update with the most recent addition to undead horde (and hoard!) - five old C18 Zombies sculpted by Kev Adams. Enjoy!

In the background, you can see a few terrain pieces I've finally finished up. Got them for christmas from my wife in 2009. There's also a piece of an hedgerow I slapped together to see if it would work out. I think it did, so probably more to come.

The astute reader might notice how I've painted the skin of these guys a little bit differently from the previous five zombies. This have several reasons, but the main reason is my painting style have changed a bit since I got Citadel's "new" line of washes. I think I like this dry look a bit better than the greener zombies I did before. What do you think?

Coming up next... game plan for 2012, I hope!

Thanks Paul! I'm actually quite happy with the old school tint my photos get... maybe not this one in particular (too much green), but a few of the recent posts (the dwarf and dark elf warbands in particular) got very red and reminded me quite a bit of the photos in the 3rd edition Warhammer rule book or white dwarf issues from the same period.

I like the zombie flesh tone shown here. There wasnt anything particularly wrong with your old fleshtone but I think that I prefer these guys.

I have tried all sorts of ways to paint zombie flesh over the years (some significantly less successful than others) with varying results. A bit like the guys shown above my current favourite look is also a grey that uses Citadel washes.

Everything in the photo is very nice. The terrain reminds me of some shots from White Dwarf from 1991 or so, the articles on making thatched cottages, fences, hedges etc. Thats a good thing.

Cheers Steve, I'm quite happy with both zombies and the walls. The guy in the middle is Gavin. =) Got one more of him to paint. All the other kids got cool names like "Flesheater", "Rotspleen" or "Luknanek" while he's stuck with... "Gavin"! =D

Looking nice old chap - I like the new terrain pieces.

New zombie skin colour works really well - I recognise the fellow the middle - still haven't painted him mind!
