FIRST OF THE ZOMBIES


The Zombies are coming !

Well, these are the first four zombies that I have painted for this project, all of them Cold War miniatures, I have previously painted three Eureka zombies (the toxic variety) before, but they are the wrong 'type' of zombie, I want my zombies to look very human, very normal, but just infected, anyway here they are shambling around just waiting to get shot.  


It took me a while to figure out how I wanted my zombies to look, in the end I went for a modest look, I'm not big on gore, so the key features for my zombies is as follows, must have a normal civillian appearence, skin tone must be a pale colourless sickly look, wounds must also be toned down, limited to severe bites or scratches, I'm not really interested in missing limbs, bone pertrusion, or anything really gross.



I may later on introduce different types of zombies ie. smart zeds, fast zeds and even zombie anomalies, they may not look like the typical zombie and they will certainly not act like the typical zombie, so keep an eye out for these freaks, the fun has only just begun.

Well it's a start and that can only be a good thing. I respect your decision to keep the gore to a minimum. It's not for everyone, I know, but I am unashamedly a gore hound. Keep 'em coming!

I must admit your toned dowm gore look is very good, really nice paintjobs on those figures, keep them coming.

Looking good. I aplaude your choice of not drenching them in gore. It makes for some new variations on the zombies.

Thanks again Glovey, I got some more Zeds coming and in the not too distant future, pics of a small section of Small Town USA, my gaming terrain.

Looking really good. I wanted to go down the min-gore route, but Vampifan said he's set his horde on me if I did, hence all my zeds being drenched in blood ...

(he's very intimidationg that Vampifan you know ...)
