The two day painting challange: Zombie!

In the constant battle to stave off panic attacks and clinical depression I have decided to turn myself over to a painting challenge. As I don't have much time during the week I will keep it simple at first. 2 minis a week and then a big project on the weekend. I figure I can build/prime one day then paint/quickshade the next. Also, I was able to paint a little this weekend so I have some Warhammer Fantasy Battles test models that I can use to hedge my bets. First up... the Zombie!

Prepare to see alot of this guy and his ilk in the coming weeks creeping out from the mist. Painting him was a snap. I actually spent more time on the bone portions than the rest of the model combined.
I used the following paint:

Rotting Flesh
Codex Grey
Scorched brown
Bleached Bone
Scab Red
Blood Red
Baal Red Wash
Devlin Mud Wash

Questions, comments and criticisms are always appreciated

Have a good one


  1. Woot Zombies! Looks even better in person! GL with the challenge!

  2. Oh I like that zombie!
    Far superior than the one I painted in two hours on the weekend... That said those two hours were from 2am to 4am lol!

  3. Thanks Da_Sub =). I have just started that guy's mob so if you would like a step by step I will have plenty more opportunities to post something. Just let me know.

  4. Make enough of those and you can start to plan out a zombie invasion!

  5. Thats the intention, I am working on the zombie corpse cart right now. I should be able to post that up this weekend as my "big project".

  6. I like it. He looks like a zombie committed to his work.

  7. Oh he is, he works his fingers to the ..... bone? WAAA waaa
