First Zombie Painted


Hi, everybody. I painted my first Zombie of 2012.  A Studio Miniatures one from set #2, the Chicken Mascot. Since I first saw this mini on Vampifan's site I wanted one.

This was a fun mini to paint. It has great detail. I used some Tamiya Clear Red for the wounds. It's still a little fresh and shiny in these pics.

I also did a little work on one of the Sarissa Precision Buildings. Sprayed it Krylon Ruddy Brown primer. It took the paint well, no detail lost and no warping. I printed out some textures from the WorldWorks Games Bank that I'll use for the floors and walls. Maybe I'll make that building a bank.

Thanks for looking.

That´s exactly why I never wear any chicken costume... How embarassing is to be seen like that in the middle of a zombie holocaust!!!

@Ray: Thanks. I used to use the Tamiya clears for gems on my High Elves. What a big change. :)

@Brummie: Thanks. It is a very cool scuplt.

@Dan: Thanks. No, I haven't seen the penguin zombie. I'll have to google it.

@Vampifan: LOL, thanks. You've gotten hooked on Studio minis.

@Fran: Thanks, bit of a pun there. :)

@The Extraordinarii: Thanks. I'm going for mid-moderate gore levels.

@Dice Plague: LOL. So true. Next up will be a Dino Mascot from Victory Force Minis. Gotta get the mascots out of the way. :)
