This year I’m trying to do something a little different with the blog; rather than create posts for specific individual models, I’m going to try to do a summary post of the work I’ve done over the past week. Hopefully I’ll keep it up!Continue reading “Weekly Round Up – 2019 – Week 1”
I’m having a little trouble pushing the minotaur over the line particularly now that I’m back at work, I suspect because I’m on the fine details stage.
I had really enjoyed working on the Necromunda terrain, and trying out a looser and more relaxed style, so I thought I’d try a similar approach to some Zombicide Zombies…
I had a real problem finishing this guy off. I was really demotivated by how badly the base was, that I lost all interest in finishing this guy off, so he sat on my painting desk whilst I worked on the Mordor Orc.
I’d tried the citadel texture paints for the first time, and I really didn’t do a good job with it, and the edges of the base had a nasty horizontal mold line that looked really terrible and unfinished – but technically it was unfinished!
In the end, I rolled my sleeves up, filed and trimmed away the mold line on the base, and applied some sand as normal. A quick black basecoat, a simple drybrush of a couple of different tones, a few clumps of static grass and a smooth coat on the base edge, and I was happy enough to claim that he’s done.
Walk of the Dead
I was getting a little fed up with painting brown (yes I know, after only half a model), so I thought I’d switch things up and paint something a bit different tonight,
I could hear some shuffling and groaning from the corner of my hobby room, and looking over to the other end of my desk I spotted a zombicide season 1 walk of the dead zombie. He’d been sitting partially worked on for a while, so I took the chance to push him on a few further steps.
