Back to important manners.....zombies! I've had my tray of figs that I tend to use one colour and pick and choose models to add it to. I decided I needed a solid effort to deliver some figs though, and focused on painting up 3 sticks.
My trained zombie elimination troops. Since they don't need camo against mindless foes, they are marked up in some bright hazmat gear. I made a mistake when I painted two sets of colours on two sticks.....I grouped them in similar poses for ease of painting, so now the squads are, unfortunately, few very poses.
I rationalized that they probably quarantine all their 'outside' equipment, and have disposable (or cleanable) inner suits.....hence the purple hoods and gloves (closest to the skin). Everything else stays in the 'dirty area'. I imagine it wouldn't be worth trying to clean weapons, armour, and battle harness every outing.
The dogs were fun to paint, as I was trying to convey a few different breeds. Two of the small guys ended up looking too similar in my mind, but I couldn't be bothered to change it as there is still a mountain to defeat.
The ladies I painted with 2 different skin recipes. The greener one is super simple (2 colours), but I don't like it as much. The one on the end is much more involved..and one of the later steps detracts a lot (green ink, too light final skin tone used). I'll probably edit it a bit for some of the other zombies.
The blood was a mix of dark red/brown, with a bit of brighter red. I suppose I should add some extra brown and black bits, but I think it will darken the figs too much. These are the first zombies I've painted so input would be much appreciated.
