Reaper Miniature's Zombies - 77053
I painted these three zombies from the Kickstarter on Sunday while watching the original Resident Evil movie on Netflix - it was the perfect movie for this painting session! Call me a fanboy - I'm big on Milla Jovovich going back to her role in The Fifth Element (which ranks near the top on my list of favorite sci-fi movies).
I was able to crank out everything except the base which I completed tonight.
Again, the value of the Bones figures is pretty awesome - $5.49 for a pack of three bones. The metal figure is in their Legends line as 3598B and will set you back $3.99 a piece.
Painting instructions for Zombies:
Step 01: Undercoat model with black paint (not primer - it will eat into the plastic and cause tackiness)
Step 02: Paint all flesh with Camo Green
Step 03: Drybrush all flesh with Rotting Flesh
Step 04: Drybrush highlights on flesh with Pallid Flesh
Step 05: Paint tattered pants with Regal Blue
Step 06: Drybrush tattered pants with Enchanted Blue
Step 07: Drybrush highlights of tattered pants with Lightning Blue
Step 08: Drybrush highlights on hair with Shadow Grey
Step 09: Drybrush Codex Grey on base
Step 10: Drybrush Fortress Grey on base
Step 11: Drybrush Skull White on base
Kickstarter paint total: 44 + 3 Zombies = 47
