Hello chaps, another quick post on my little undead side project… this time we’re on to the zombies!! To recap, the range is (mostly) non-human undead – this post covers ‘the baddy’ races of Orc, Gobbo, Rat Man and Lizard Man. As before, they were painted quickly using mostly ink washes, with just a little bit of technical paint for some effects.
First up we have ‘Orc Zombie’ by Mate Lavotha. Again, as with the skeleton, he’s a real bruiser – this time boasting a massively muscled physique. It isn’t massively obvious that he’s a zombie really, other than the classic zombie pose… not hugely convinced by this guy:
Next up we have the ‘Lizardman Zombie’ by Jason Weibe. Another substantial piece, and again, one of the stand-out minis for me. I like the pose and the detail – you can see that this guy took some killing!:
Thirdly we have the ‘Goblin Zombie’ by Leandro Ventic. He’s a bit light on detail and the head is a bit clown-like, but still a nice little character who was good fun and quick to paint:
Finally we have the ‘Ratman Zombie’ by Behrle Hubbuch. What a creepy little critter! (the mini, not the sculptor). On the one hand, there isn’t much to this mini at all, but the surface detail is actually quite lovely, and this really helps to make it look like a mangy, rotten little rat. I actually feel a bit sorry for the little guy – I bet he had a really shitty life, and undeath just continues to shit on him… poor rat:
And here we have the double-set of four:
I just have six more minis to go to complete this project – three sets of two. It’ll be at least a week today before I can get them finished though, I have no hobby time this week. I’ll be really glad to get them out of the way tbh, and get back to something for the grim darkness of the far future. I have a few ideas bubbling away, not to mention some cracking minis from the Colony 87 KS! Onwards and upwards! :-)
