Cheap Zombies are no masterpieces, but they are cheap


I worked some more on the cheap squad I showed you yesterday, wanting to finish up more zombies to get ready for my next game. here's a step by step, really dirty and quick paintjob. Remember, the paintjob can be like that until the last highlight, which I haven't done yet. I have really taken painting more serious over the years, but I couldn't help doing this quickly and that in itself was fun. Here's the tutorial on how to go fast

Here's the squad, painted white and brown

A quick drybrush over the earth


Heavy wash over all of it


 Now some different colors washes while all is still wet; use it sparingly! Red
 Green
 Blue
 On the larger bodies you have a bit more room to work
 After a bit of drying, white drybrush
 Starting to look a bit better
 Then a black wash around all creases of the zombies coming out of the ground
 A bit of grass
I will finish it up tomorrow


Hope this inspires! No masterpieces but good enough for FREE units: play those counts! They are super COOL

  2. Don't be hard on yourself; I don't think zombies are supposed to look beautiful.

    No, they won't likely be winning any golden demons, but they capture the essence of zombieism perfectly. I think they look great. :)

  7. Holy smokes, fantastic! I included your blog in my Fantasy Directory, but it's nothing right now and won't get the attention it deserves for another month or two.

    You popped-up on Blogger's Recommended list and I was blown-away. This may sound like a spammy comment just to promote myself, but I really just wanted to stop and give you a shout of encouragement.

    Thanks!
