ZOMBIE MASHUPS

ANOTHER THREE SHUFFLE IN TO JOIN THE HORDE

GLAD TO SEE THE BACK OF THEM
      The first two zombies are made from simple conversions/kitbash of Mantic torsos and WGF legs, while the third one is an old Heroquest zombie.
  Left to Right: First up is Baywatch Brin, actually on the beach this time. Next to Brin is Andy the ex-survivalist, obviously his survival planning didn't work out
Finally we have Ivor, he used to be a lab assisstant to a famous science franchise but now he just shuffles about looking for fresh flesh. I'm not a big fan of zombies with weapons, but after re-watching the black and white classic Night of the Living Dead I noticed that the zombie in the graveyard in the opening scenes picks up a rock to smash the window of the car, to get to Barbara, so maybe I'll just let it slide.
   Ivor has been painted with a variation on my basic Grey scheme. The basic scheme starts with a Shadow grey basecoat, overbrush with Codex grey, another overbrush with Fortress grey. Finally a touch of Leviathan purple wash here and there for a little mottling. Ivor differs slightly as he has a Blue Ink wash between the Shadow and Codex grey coats and has another layer of overbrushing on top of the Fortress grey with Space Wolves grey. I try not to use as much Devlan Mud wash on the grey figures, but they do get a splash.
   Hope the breakdown helps.
I must give a massive shout-out to VAMPIFAN who very kindly sent me a package of Studio plastics, the man's a LEGEND, they will get paint thrown at them soon. I've had an incredible amount of pageviews, over 500, I must thank everybody for taking the time to look.
                'til the next time in the words of the DUDE take it easy.

  2. I like them, Bob. The zed in the middle is particularly outstanding.

    1. Thank you very much, Bryan. He was a bit of an experiment with flesh colours over a purple wash. Glad you like him.

  3. Great work Bob. While I'm not a fan of armed zombies, I love the one with the machete!

  6. Nice, the Mantic & WGF kits mash up well imo, the Mantic torsos are a little heroic but the kits create some unique and disturbing poses. I've had my eye on the heroquest chap on ebay for some time, was thinking of replacing the axe with a leg maybe, whatever he looks cool :)

    1. Thanks hh
      Yeah they do mash up well, I've got some Studio plastics to mix with a few Mantics next but got loads to paint up first so won't be for several weeks.

    2. Cool, a cut down sprue makes a great neck for the Mantic heads on the SM zeds. Looking forward to seeing them. Have fun! :)
