Zombie Horde WIP
I don't normally post images of base-coated miniatures on the website, mainly because they always look pretty awful regardless of how great they'll look when finished. However, I'm posting some up today for a customer who's had some problems downloading the images I've been emailing out. Clearly, these zombies have a long, long way to go yet. Because they're soft plastic, I'll be treating them with a mix of floor varnish and turpentine later tonight before taking them to the next stage of painting. This should make the plastic less bendy, which keep the paint from peeling off if the miniatures are handled roughly during play or in postage. It also means that (I'll more or less) have to reapply the base coat afterword. Then I'll be able to shade the miniatures with a wash or two and finish them off with some highlights as normal.

As well as these thirty odd zombies, I have over a dozen survivors to paint as well. I'll be starting on them tomorrow. I hope to have some more Battletech pictures up tomorrow as well. Right, that's me finished until after I come back from the club later tonight. I've got a game of AE-WWII arranged with Mecha Ace tonight. It'll be my last game of anything but 40K for a while though. At least until after Chaos in the Warp 4 (a tournament held in central scotland on 30th June to 1st July).
