MartinC - Zombie Horde ( 210 points)

Having finished the Zulus I was sick of brown. I needed a different palette to use and grey was appealing so I present a zombie horde painted in grey (mainly).




These are the Studio Miniatures plastic Zombie horde and were painted very quickly using thinned down greys, black and whites. The figures were then dipped in watered down indian ink and left to dry. Ties, hats and big hair were then painted in different colours and blood added to hands, mouths and clothes. The bases are painted plain black , I think it works well for the horde.

Overall there are 42 figures in the horde and I'm now off to paint something slowly.

Yup, that is a big bomb of zombies to be sure! Wicked. With this mob Martin, you will handily move into the lead in the points race. Well done.

  3. I really like the colour palette and the feature splashes!

    Have you ever tried, you know, just painting one miniature at a time? Horde addiction is a terrible thing...

  4. Is this the start of a Meta horde? Going on the Zulus I would not bet against it,

    One rotting and shuffling bomb.

    1. Bring it on. Although I'm pretty much down to proper painting now I'm sure I can find some more batches to paint

    Very tidy work, but are all your submissions going to start with 'z'?

  7. You are a very strange man with excellent cinema references. Running out of Zeds. Maybe some Zoroastrians, Zorro, Zappata. Ok this now sounds like the end of the Referee's alphabet by Half Man Half Biscuit (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WKk9eizHAaE)
