Zombicide Runner 1

Quick and dirty summer painting continues with another season 1 zed from Zombicide. As usual, great sculpts with crappy casting, but hey…it’s game plastic. So feel free to slap paint and have fun!

I think the total time for this dude ran just over four hours after filling in the base. As usual for these guys I just re-used colors on the palette for the base.

He ended up being a bit more limited palette, I used the undead skin triad and the newer blood triad, only adding Olive Shadow to extend the darker end of the undead skin triad. As I mentioned in my WIP, I’m kind of obsessed with that triad right now, it’s really nice. The ‘greens’ here are heavy on the lower to mid and the ‘whites’ are mid to high; bloodless skin is the ‘pure white’ for this project (as it was with my walker 1). My only problem was that olive shadow doesn’t hold its value when combined with darker reds, it brings both paints up about a point.

Hope you enjoy these guys. They’re fun to paint and helping me keep my sanity during the painting doldrums!

Zombicide Runner WIP

Last weekend I put in a quick round on a runner zombie I started base coating with the fatty, but lots of interruptions. Just going to be a painting doldrum as I’ve been saying, and I’ve been finding ways to cope with prep and painting quick stuff!

Last night we were out in Saratoga seeing Doyle Bramhall, Tedeschi Trucks and the incomparable Sharon Jones. I love me some Sharon Jones, she’s just amazing.

Anyway, today I had a couple hours on my hands and decided to finish off that runner, quick and dirty. Maybe four hours total, and it shows…but it was fun and accomplishing my goal of keeping full-on rust from forming over the summer.

Just need to whip up the base colors like I’ve been doing with these quick zombies the last couple months and I’ll put up a show off, probably tomorrow…but I wanted /some/ WIP of him, hah!

Prep bench update

I’m not dead…yet! Mostly been spending any hobby time I get here and there doing some prep work so that I can focus on painting this winter. I also have the Grudge bust and a couple more zombicide things underway (forgot I have three or four survivor/zombivor pair prepped, too). Oh, and a couple KD pieces I pulled for a possible scene. Ah, well.
