it's really funny, I always thought you painted your miniatures very well, but didn't really like the cold/blue shine that they often seem to have. However, seeing some of the miniatures in the report compared to in you gallery, I am now more convinced that the cold/blueish tone that I often see in your pictures is due to how you take your pictures. Funny to see how much difference there is between the way pictures are taken.

Don't take my critisism as a big thing since I still have to say, I always do enjoy seeing new work from you.

Why aim for gold if you can get lead?

Hi uti long smile, Email sent with the excel sheets.

I just added the missing zombies from Ral Partha and Reaper into the zombie folder. The zombie rising from the grave is from an oop Ral Partha pack.

The pics from the game were taken from UncleRhino's camera without the light set up that I usually have. I thought that he did a great job with the pics on the fly.

The set that I usually use is a white background with reveal light bulbs with the white balance adjusted.

Thanks again all.

I believe that the zombies are from the fantasy range. See link:

The zombie scenario was blatantly nicked from zombie movies that I have seen. For the zombie stats, I used for the most part the stats from the Rattrap WW2 book with modifications.1/2 grades.

The zombie dogs were faster that your run of the mill zombie and there was an uber zombie (siren) as an encounter.

Those are great photos, thanks for sharing :)

The zombie dogs painted up much better than I expceted. I saw the bag '0 zombie dogs in the plastic so to speak years ago and didn't thing they would look this nice painted. Well done Sir.


I have a few of those dog minis left over after I quickly painted up a few.  PM me if you would like me to send you some.

I have to echo Braxandur request.

Excellent paint job! They do look bruised... like their blood has just stopped.

D'OH!!  o_o I guess that's the way they're supposed to look. But how did you do it?

Trying to learn because my painting is still in the sucky stage.  :'(

Later,
Warren

To be honest, since there were so many zombies to paint and they go down like fodder, I used the dip method with Minwax Polyshades.

After blocking out the colors, I painted purples and pinks around the open wounds and liberally slathered on the reds for blood. Painted on the dip with a brush, waited a couple of days to dry, Dull Coat, finish up the bases and off they shambled to be cut down like corn.

I love those simple & fast techniques that give fantastic results!!

I'm going to try this on my zombies too.

THANKS!
