MasterDisaster Posted April 1, 2014 Report Share Posted April 1, 2014 Hi Guys Welcome to my first EVER painting thread/blog. As many of you many know I've spent many months commenting and offering advice on painting, modelling etc and I figured it was about time I put up or shut up! I've not painted in about 18-24 months for varying reasons but finally I decided to get my ass in gear and start it up. I started with small things to ease myself back into the process so here is what I started with. Corpse Counters I'd decided to work on these because Nicodem is going to be the first crew I paint myself. I made 10 of these using Grave Stones from GW's Tomb King Skeleton kits I've had lying around for a good 10-15 years. Nothing special but they get the job done. Apologies for the picture quality. I've been using my phone. When I get a chance I'll pinch the camera from the Mrs and start getting better quality pictures up. After painting up these little bad boys I felt more confident in trying something bigger so I decided to go to Mindless Zombies for my next project. I decided to use Mantic's range of Zombies as they seem about right for scale and there isn't a huge amount of detail to worry about. They are also fairly cheap so in the event something went horribly wrong (Turns out it did with my first batch of 6!) they'd be cheap enough to replace. Mindless Zombies Now I can appreciate this isn't the best work ever seen here on the forum. Not by a long shot but to be honest I think they turned out rather nicely. I decided to give the Army Painter products a go, I started with the Necrotic Flesh Primer (Which is how I screwed up the first 6 by applying WAY to much primer on the models) and then had a go with their Quickshade Dip. I chose to apply the dip with a brush instead so I could control where it went more easily. Only after applying the final layer of varnish and taking these photos had I realized I'd missed one or two mold lines which caused a few 4 letter words to be screamed but I started working on these 8 after cocking up my original 6 and it was quite late at night, I was tired, annoyed and in a bit of a rush. However considering this was my first effort at models in a good long while I'd happily say they are good enough for tabletop quality. Given that these guys came out quite nicely I'm going to start the Punk Zombies next using a similar method I used on the Mindless Zombies. I must admit I'm a little apprehensive as there is way more detail on the Punks but only time will tell. Comments. Critique and Advice most welcome! (Be gentle! ) Punk Zombies to come soon.
