Just another update on the Punk Zombies – flesh tones are done on all three:
It only took two hours a piece to get the flesh done from basecoat to finishing gore splatterings. I did however think something was missing so I did what I’ve been doing on my Skaven – added some subtle patches of yellow-green glazes to really make them look undead.
I’m still pondering what colour(s) to do the hair and clothing though!
Malifaux is one of those systems I’ve dabbled with over the last five years, first in 2010 having painted up a handful of the 1st edition. More recently I tried again in 2014 only to basically rage-quit because I wasn’t prepared for how fragile and fiddly the 2nd edition plastics can be (evil glances at the Rotten Belles.) 😦
Anyway I wanted something simple I could work on inbetween Skaven so I don’t burn out on the little rats.
Punk Zombies are one of those sets I was waiting for, but weren’t available seperately tip after I gave up on Malifaux last year. A year and a half later, being a bit less impulsive with miniatures and having thought the assembly through properly – I thought I’d try again.
I did the skin in one session using the box art as colour reference – although mine is browner and less saturated. Aside from a few touchups I’m ready to get the rest of the model done so I can bash my way through the other two. Suggestions for trouser and mohawk colours are appreciated, I’m thinking black leather and crimson red respectively at the moment.
As a side note, the Skaven Warlord is still being worked on and the plan to finish it by end of October.
