Weekly Round Up – 2019 – Week 22

This weeks effort has been focused on the Toxic City Mall Zombies. They’re still WIP as I figure out how to achieve the style that I want!

Zombicide

I rushed into the first batch of Zombies with a hazy plan, but I didn’t start with a test mini, which I’m regretting a little now. I think I’ve started too dark on the skin, picking a rather dark base coat colour, and hadn’t really considered the effect the overall wash would have. The clothing is OK (because it’s lighter), but even from the first photographs it’s clear the green was too dark.

The brown wash that I use for my board game standard is OK, except that it darkens the skin further. The paler green (Moot Green), and the yellow highlights pop nicely, it’s just the basecoat layer that’s not working for me.

I’m going to continue reworking the skin until I’m happy with it, and then once I know the recipe I’ll soon start to pick up the pace again!

#PaintHammer2019

Nothing to report on the completed mini’s front, but the zombies aren’t too far away which means I am closing in on breaking the 100 mini barrier.
