Zombie: Figure 9 of 265
Since I knew I would be away at Historicon all weekend (see previous post) I finished up a quick and easy figure last week before I left: the Zombie from the Original 30 BONES set.
After scrubbing with dish soap, and gluing to a black-primed fender washer, I applied just three colors of paint: Americana "Reindeer Moss Green" to the skin, Americana "Khaki Tan" to the pants and black to the hair. I then gave the whole thing a wash with Windsor Newton "Peat Brown' ink. After this dried i added yellow pupil-less eyes, and some bloody gore on the hands mouth and spattered randomly across the body with Apple Barrel "Apple Maroon"with a couple highlights done with GW "Blood Red'
When completed, i brushed on a protective coat with Ceramcoat "Matte Varnish", and then flocked the base. the final step was a coat of Testor's Dull Cote spray paint.
Very pleased with the outcome, and the ease and quickness with which the figure was completed.
