Tutorial- Speedpainting Zombies

The following is an excerpt of a blog article.  Read Full Article

Tim and I decided to run a large scale game of The Walking Dead: All Out War at next week's Tabletop Minions Expo (come see us there!), and I decided this would be the perfect excuse to paint up all 33 Walking Dead zombie models I own. I decided to speed paint them to make sure I finished them in time, and to challenge myself. So many zombies! I started by priming them black using Vallejo Surface Primer through my airbrush. I then, added layers of grey and white in a zenithal highlight pattern. The original plan was to do ...

Looks great! This is probably the 4th generation of mass-painted zombies that CSW members have done and by far the most gory.

They look quite varried. How many unique sculpts are there?

Not exactly sure. there are a couple duplicates, and 3 of one particular model. Most of them are unique. It's a big selling point for the various upgrade boxes in my opinion. I think the duplicates all came from the "extra zombies" expansion.

Mostly unique zombies is really impressive. Most games resort to multiples of just a couple sculpts. I still look back with a bit of embarassment at painting lord knows how many identical rubbery "Zombies!" figs. They served their purpose back in 2011 but I don't miss them and these are so much better.

Along with Tim's undead we've got to be close to 70 or 80 zombies now.

The blood effects look really nice in these pictures! I might have to look at some of this Tamiya clear red. :D
