Zombies, Zombies, Zombies....of All Kind and Creed. Oh, and Bats Too!

By now, I would venture to say I have become fairly adept at painting zombies. For Necromunda, the zombie horde is something like 80-100 strong. Many of those still need to be painted, but who's counting? For Malifaux, I have a pretty large collection of Ressers now, essentially just zombies with a variety of abilities and styles. And on the horizon, I've been giving Zombicide envious eye lately, so there are likely many more zombies to paint before I rest.

I know I've shown pics of some of these models before, but now that they are based they really are worth looking at.

First up, Rotten Belle #2 is complete and ready for the table. She has yet another variation on the zombie skin tone as I wanted her, as well as the rest of the Belles, to look freshly dead.

I don't recall exactly how much I discussed this before, but I ended up a big fan of her spring green dress. When I was younger, painting Orks and Space Marines and lots and lots of Guns, I never thought I woul…

Green Space

I have found myself in that strange part of the creative process recently. This obviously applies to painted and every aspect of the hobby, but it also applies to creative endeavors in general. What I’m speaking of is that “green space” we find ourselves in when between one model and the next. I have found myself firmly planted in this green space, with all of my pedestals empty.



The correct thing to do in this situation is to simply grab the next Ressurrectionists, stick them on the pedestals and start painting. I, on the other hand, have decided that this situation calls for me to look over all of the models I own and take large pains and a few hours looking things over, debating whether I should pick up some more Necromunda models to paint, maybe Space Hulk….or if I could just finish that Puppet Wars project….or maybe buy Zombicide or something…..AH!!



The good news is that I do have a nice long weekend coming up and a chance to really deflate from work and get some good painting …
