ZEDVEMBER WEEK # 3

What's Occurrin'.

Still ploughing on with the zeds. Although I have been drawn away from the painting table by the lure of a new computer game. More on that later! So production has taken a backward step. What can I say! Easily distracted, um definitely.

Keeping up with the mission, the cultural one? Another great work from stayinwonderland. His penultimate piece unfortunately. Entitled Zombie Amusement Park. I've have enjoyed his small selection of zombie images, he does a lot more than zombies if you care to check it out. All of the same exceptional high standard.

ZOMBIE AMUSEMENT PARK.
Production down, back to four zombies. Never mind, it's still four more off the plastic hill. Season 1 walker, Season 3 VIP, Season 3 VIP and a Season 2 walker.

FOUR MORE SHAMBLE IN TO JOIN THE HORDE.
From left to right. Firstly is Luc, another vest and shoes zombie, shot as well as having lost an arm. Secondly another officer of the law Deputy Hughes, obviously injured on duty. Next up is short order cook Tomos, looks as if he ended up on the menu! Groan!! Finally for this time another guy in a suit, without a tie. Maybe a software designer, called Bran.

AND AGAIN, TAKEN FROM BEHIND.
I said I'd been lured away from the paints by a new computer game. Lost quite a few hours to it this week too. My son bought Fallout 4. Oh my word, lost in a post apocalyptic reality, check! Get to shoot big guns, check! Familiar but with enough new twists and tasks to keep it epic, check! You get the idea, check! Feckin' Brilliant!!

Well I guess that's all I got for this time dudes and dudettes. So until next time follow in the path of the DUDE and "take it easy".

  1. Great looking zombies, Bob. I especially like the cop.

    I hear the short-order cook specializes in finger food... made from actual fingers.

  2. Great work Bob, you are truly one of the kings of blood splatter :-) Very tempted by "Fallout 4" myself but am trying to resist for the very reason you raise ;-)

      The blood splatter gives a little interest to some very boring grey bases!
      Fallout 4 is an excellent post apocalyptic romp dude! Yes, it can steal all your hobby time if you let it!

  11. At the Con I attended in Reno this weekend there were SO MANY Fallout Vault dwellers in costume it was silly. But also cool.

    New Zed's fit in nicely mate.

      Fallout is a great premise and a very immersive game. I can see why people go crazy for it. The vault suit is a pretty iconic look too dude!

  12. Love the skin tones you achieve on your zombies. What colors do you use for them?

    By the way ... GLENN IS ALIVE!!!!!!! I know I know the comics. But still ...

    ReplyDelete
  13. Thanks F.E.M.
    OK, the colours I use at the moment are : The pale green is Necrotic Flesh and the yellowy off white is Zombie Skin. Both by Army Painter, the Zombie Skin is in the Zombicide range of paints. The grey skins are Eshin Grey, overbrushed with Dawnstone. Finish with a dryish dry brush of Fortress Grey. All these are GW paints, all though Fortress Grey is long OOP.

    Yes, Glenn is alive, pretty cool. I really like his character!

    1. Thanks Bob. I would have to figure out the VMC and Citadel paint equivalents for some of them but at least this gives me an idea of how to approach a different version of zombie skin tone than what I'm used to.
