Zombicide Black Plague: Survivors
Here are my finished survivors from Zombicide: Black Plague. It was a long process, taking me weeks of on-and-off painting (while I work on my children's book/illustrations.)
It had been a while since I had painted medieval/fantasy figures; I forgot the amount of detail sculptors like to cram into those figures. Ugh. The modern Zombicide figures were great to paint fast -- Shirt, pants, shoes and gun, done -- but the fantasy figures: belts, baldric, armor, satchels, swords, daggers, scabbards, jerkin, boots, overload! But they do look pretty if I can get everything painted properly; half of my problem is identifying many of those details.
Now, I have a bunch of zombies to get done fast (my friends and I are playing on Sunday.) But they'll be getting the monochromatic treatment, so they shouldn't take more than a long afternoon. I'm going to try out brown for my monochromatic base color, and go from there.
I better get them done fast (after my zombies): Just put into the mail are my copy of Soccer City, along with three teams worth of minis. They look a little bit more cartoony, so painting might go quick. I'll get a better idea once I see them in person.
