Shamble On


Too late for Halloween, another Heresy zombie limps into view. He did his best to be punctual, but it would seem that undeath takes a toll. The old boy just doesn't get around as well as he used to.

This was an exercise in producing results comparable to the first Heresy zombie from a couple weeks ago. They were painted entirely separately and, to my eye, match up nicely.


Less pleasing is the white, comma-shaped marking on his shin. I could try to pass it off as necromantic sigil of some sort; an unholy symbol of great power.  In truth, I slopped some paint in the wrong spot while finishing the base and only noticed while I was taking pictures. Oops.

I'll touch that up while painting the final two minis from the blister. Speaking of which, here they are in various stages of completion:

Left) Primer, Center) Basecoat, Right) Near completion


Before proceeding, I'll likely finish the owlbear and two gorilla bears that spent October on the back-burner. More on that next time.

  1. Nice job. I wouldn't of worried it just likes a diseased patch of skin or something nice work on them all sir!

    1. Thank you Simon. It's an easy fix. Just have to remember to do it while painting the other two.

  2. Outstanding! What a wonderful job and nicely matched to the exiting one; not being a fan of batch painting I keep forgetting my 'recipe', I really must write them down.

    1. Thanks Michael. It is frustrating when attempting to revisit a previously successful recipe to realize that I haven't the foggiest recollection of how I got from point A to point B.
