Yay I've actually started doing something on this project now  lol







The minis are obviously of a larger scale than the housing. But it doesn't bother me. I think it gives a cartoonish feel to it all that I like. Some of the houses I have are WAY too small though (hobbit doors and so on).

I'm trying to decide whether I should undercoat the buildings and paint them from top to bottom.. or just toy around with some mat varnish and pigments on the plastic?

I think you should go with the varnish and pigment approach. The zombies are looking good so far btw. I get quite a Slesvig-Holsten-feel about the buildings: The top pic looks like something from Lakolk on Rømø and the other one looks just like the trainstation at Niebøl... Almost feels like home  :'(  lol

Indeed. Any old station village (stationsby/ladeplads) of Jutland will actually be quite well rendered by these buildings.

A little more experimenting today.

I dullcoted the house and then drybrushed it with a bone colour.

After that I sprayed it with white from directly above and then spray glue. After that I gave it a case of the cold with GW snowflock mixed with Noch snow.

I'm thinking that I'm going for a nuclear winter approach.

Great job, I really like the idea of a local Zombie game, please let me see it for real on day!
