Zombies – wave 1

Is there better enemy for fantasy heroes warband than pack of zombies? I guess not 🙂 So here are first 4 of RedBox Games zombie set. More will come soon (at least 5 more). These are my first zombies ever, so I’m still learning to paint them enough zombie-like. The skin is painted in light grey and shaded with green and purple glazes.
I wanted to place them in winter setting – just like the undead from Game of Thrones. I used frozen rolling pin to create base surface and colored ice plates gradually in shades of blue. The snow is from Army Painter.

Wolf pack

Recently I painted one big wolf, now it’s time for 3 smaller ones. These are from RedBox Games. The metal miniatures had really prominent fur sculpture, so painting them was quite fast. After priming with light grey I applied black wash and then drybrushed with base color. After that I highlighted with precise brush individual strands of fur with progressively lighter grays (up to almost white). I wanted to paint really evil wolves, so I couldn’t resist to paint their eyes in bright red. To break the monotonous grey, I painted their noses and ears in shades of violet. The bases are made from pieces of cork with some static grass and various trash to simulate forest ground. Project “One wolf per one evening” came to an end 🙂
