zombies

Everyone I know seems to have a box of zombies at the back of their cupboard. Often there is no memory of how they even got there. This seems appropriate for zombies. These ones lurked unloved and unpainted for far too long, but have now crawled out of their toxic barrels, ready to shamble into whatever undead filled horror is required. (Most likely as totencorps for K-47.)

I had a play with a newish Citadel paint, Hexwraith Flame. Put it on a light base with a pale grey highlight and it can really glow. It behaves a bit like an ink, so my experiment of using red ink on the same models wasn’t entirely successful, loosing the bright finish. The end result is OK, but didn’t need expensive green paint to achieve. I’m looking at this as a bonus. The models are painted and I’ve learnt a bit about a new paint line from GW.

The models are Eureka Miniatures, and are their usual excellent standard with lots of different poses, which is a real plus for metal figures. From the same manufacturer are these toxic-waste zombies, emerging from mysterious barrels of goo. Good fun.

Assisting with enquiries

I found some old, old minis the other day. Most of which I don’t know what they are.

I think this one is from Citadel, an Aly Morrison cave troll from the 80s (complete with 80s paint job!):31195856080_13e080d727_k (1)

But I don’t know who this bad boy is?31567884495_d735b74727_k

Plus some skeletons, also from the 1980s, by I think Ral Partha, along what looks like Fiend Folio era githyanki and some goblin-looking thing:
