WIP: Walk of the Dead Zombie 1 Part 1

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.

I’ve got to say that I really love the aesthetics of the walk of the dead zombies from Zombicide.  They are the perfect mix of character, enough detail to be interesting without being too much.


The only parts of them I’m not so keen on is the thin flat bases, as I just don’t really know what to do with them.  If I were a gamer,  I think I’d paint them basically with a single colour per type of zombie, but as I’m not, I need to do something else.  I don’t want to make them too detailed as I’ve got so many to work through, I’ll be a zombie myself by the time I’d be done!

I’m quite pleased with how this guy is coming along besides the base, and I really enjoyed painting the blue, possibly because all that brown on the Mordor Orc I have been looking at recently.

Walk of the Dead Zombie 1 WIP 1 Close Up


The close up shows off my lazy mini prep, but I’m finding these close up photos handy to help spot where I’ve been a little clumsy for future reference.

Anyway, long day at work with lots of context switching on planning various projects so I’m going to leave it there tonight.

Thanks for visiting,
