I’m looking to return to the hobby after a gap of several years (kids) and I figured one of the ways I could motivate myself and give me some structure or direction would be to share what I’ve painted previously and add to that over the coming months. Progress might be slow and stuttering but hey it’s undead so that’s hardly unusual.
Here’s the army I’ve been working on so far, please excuse the dust, they’ve been in a display cabinet for a while and even though I tried taking a duster gently to them and thought I’d done a good job, some of the pictures show me to be wrong. Any tips for getting dust off figures?
Besides the dust here’s a few tweaks I already want to make.
1/. The zombies are too uniform and clean. I didn’t want to deviate too much from the green theme but they just look bit dull. I’m planning on adding some fresh gore similar to the zombicoide models I’ve included.
2/. When I first built and painted these guys it was under the ruleset where wights didn’t have models and didn’t have flying. now my lumbering suits of malevolent armour aren’t quite right so i’m going to need to replace them with something, just not the mantic wights as i’m not a huge fan of the models.
The whole army, not grand by anmy means but there’s plans to expand.
Skeleton Regiments with Spears and swords
The Zombies which need bloodying + some idea of what i’m going for
Werewolves - It seems popular to paint them flesh coloured but I thought it would look odd amongst everythign else so chose all grey.
Undead Giant (Zombie troll horde?) - I just really like the idea of a skeletal giant but I thik the best way to include one might be as a troll horde proxy? It’s very unfinished and hopefully one of the next models I get stuck into properly.
Undead Dragon - Similar to the giant I just really wanted one in the army but this time there’s actually rules, I just need to find a vampire to ride it. The model is a very old all metal grenadier death dragon and weighs a tonne, even the base is solid metal!
Mhorgoth and some sort of hero (tbc)
Thanks for letting me introduce my army to you and i’m looking forward to updating with some new models and really getting back into the hobby soon
