About the Project

I'm not getting rid of my entire Zombicde Season 3 because its a bad game. I'm giving it to my sister because its a great a game. It kind of became the go-to game on my shelf when people were undecided or just too lazy to learn another game. I began to feel my other games weren't going to get a look in, so though I'd often said to myself I would never give away a game, my shelf space is curently at a premium, I have to make room for new games and I have plane to catch to go over the seas to New Zealand and deliver this to my sister in September. So why a project blog you may ask. Well 2 tings. First is to make record of all the painted minis as I will no longer be able to gawk at all the hard work. 2nd is to detail the last few paint jobs and final packing touches. Oddly this is the game that lead me to here, the BoW site. Prior to Zombicide my mini painting experience pre dated the internet. So when I finaly decided to give painting a proper go after decades of not putting paint to minis I naturaly did some searching and ended up here, discovering a great community and even more games to buy and paint!

After a hectic weekend painting I’ve managed to finish all my kickstarter exclusive player peices. And packed them ready for delivery to my sister.

So the last few minis to complete in my stretch goal box are all player pieces with their zombivor counterparts. My time is now short and other projects have to go on hold (sorry slow grow league).

Instead of spaying an under coat as I usually would I decide to try something different. I block in a black, a grey and an off white as an undercoat and proceed to apply thin coats, washes and glazes to build up a sense of skin tones and shading over the collection.

Up to now I’ve been working my paint pallet over the collection as seemed to fit best but they are starting to call out individually for more attention so I suppose I could call this collection based and blocked. Time to get down and focus on the individuals.

So VIP zombies (Very Infected People) behave like normal zombies, but from a player’s perspective are considered collectables. In that after collecting 5 different VIP sculpts during a game you can ‘cash them in’ for special equipment.

The ones dancing below were Kickstarter stretch goals , painting  only completed over the last few weeks.

Alongside Adam, Jeff, Julien and Tiif came friendly helpers in the form of companions, but following was a new zombie, the seeker, that would simply never give up.

Pretty much just a record of all the player characters and the companions. Technically I think there is some room for improvement, I never did work out why some of my matte finishes didn’t quite work the way I wanted. But having now played a few games with these, the paint certainly does what it’s supposed to on the table.

Making the pack up easy.

Perhaps the only consistent gripe with this game is packing up after a game session.  If you’ve managed to play through a couple of scenarios , or maybe just one big one then it’s possible every zombie from every box you are using has got on the table, and determining the right shape in the clear plastic trays when putting away isn’t always easy after a long night.

So I created some inserts to speed up the pack up and take out the guesswork. Though I’ve made sure a few images were reasonable enough to also act as a record of paint work they only need be recognizable silhouettes to work.

I created them by taking a photo of the full trays on a white back drop, giving enough distance to reduce shadow, then filtered the background out with GIMP (image editing software)

Bring on the horde!

As of starting this blog the only record of of my Zombicide painting efforts has been a few entries in the What Are You Painting Now thread . The pic above shows all the minis I obtained from the Zombicide season 3 kickstarter wich comprises of Rue Morgue- all painted, Bad Neighbours  – all painted, the zombivor addons to complement the player characters from Rue Morgue, and the extra stretch goal minis wich are almost all painted except for a few player characters and a handfull of VIP zombies which are still W.I.P. There is also a few player characters as seperate packs which have yet to be touched.
