They’re done! The little buggers. Some of them are really terrible, some parts of some of them are bad, and some small parts are pretty ok and quite pleasing. I played a lot with the new paints and washes and a couple of other things (I’ll blog about those later). For now, just a short post to say the zombies are done, seven years late, but done none-the-less.
So I didn’t finish them all, but I put in a damn good showing! They are zombies after all and eventually, all mortals fall to them.
Four more done, only 5 of the 20 left to go!
I’m really tired of these zombies now and it’s showing in the detail (or lack of it). In fact, looking back at the way I cleaned them (hardly at all) and undercoated them (badly) it’s clear I wasn’t that excited about them from the start. I bought them when it looked like I was going to give Warhammer the game a go, but that never really got off the ground. I’ve enjoyed painting them, don’t get me wrong, but in order to enjoy it I’ve had to basically use the figures as experiments, playing with technique and colour and seeing how things look.
Five more to go … but working tomorrow and roleplaying in the evening (yay), so they won’t get touched until the weekend at the earliest.
I am going to finish this troop of Warhammer Zombies today, or I shall die trying.
No quarter given.
Painted from around midday to around 10pm, while also watching the first season and two specials of the Vicar of Dibley, Wallace & Gromit in The Curse of the Were-Rabbit and also Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Did a tiny bit of work on Sasha and will update the diary posts (there’s a post to come covering stuff I did last week, and I’ll write up a new post covering today’s work which will show up in a few days time). Messed around a little with one of the fighting nuns, but most of the work went into the zombies. Finally got a half-dozen or so finished and some pictures posted in the Picasa album over here.
Here’s a group shot, I managed to convince them to stop eating dwarves and stand still long enough for a photo.
