Bones II: A Trio Of Zombies

Chris Palmer

  I also completed three Zombies from the Bones II, Expansion I, Zombies set, for use in my Frostgrave games.   I prepped the figures in the usual way; soaking them in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish- soap added, then giving them a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying them.  I then glued one of the figure to a white-primed 1" fender washers with Aleene’s Tacky glue and the other to a black primed 1" fender washer.  I then glued the washers to a tongue depressor with a couple drops of the Elmer’s glue each.

      I began by painting the skin of all the figures with GW “Rotting Flesh”.  I then painted their clothing:  for Zombie-1 I painted the pants  with Ceramcoat  "Raw Sienna" and the shirt with Apple Barrel “Burnt Sienna”,  Zombie-2 I painted the dress with Folk Art “Cloudy Day”, and for Zombie-3 I painted the over shirt with Americana “True Blue” and Reaper MSP Bones “Cinnamon Red” and the under shirt  with Citadel Colour “Snakebite Leather"and the pants with Folk Art "Poppy Seed”.

     I then painted their hair: Zombie-1 with Americana “Asphaltum”, Zombie-2 with the “Raw Sienna”, and Zombie-3 with Black.  Afterwards, I gave all three a complete wash with GW “Agrax Earthshade” wash using a wet brush.

     When the wash was dry, I painted their teeth and eyes with Americana “Buttemilk”.   I then painted Folk Art “True Burgundy” blood splatters here and there, and then followed with some Crafter’s Acrylic “Christmas Red” to represent fresher blood".
      Lastly, I painted the bases White.  I then applied a little area of white glue to each base and sprinkled a couple bits of black gravel and some course black sand on each one.   When the glue was dry, I drybrushed the sand and gravel areas with Americana “Neutral Grey”. Then drybrushed them with Crafter’s Acrylic “Storm Cloud Grey”, then Folk Art “Porcelain Grey”. When everything had overnight to dry, I gave the figure a coat of Ceramcoat “Matte Varnish”.  Then, the next morning, I flocked the white areas with Woodland Scenics “Snow” flock.  Later that afternoon I sprayed the figure with Testor’s Dullcote.

          Nothing exciting, but a nice trio of Zombies to populate the frozen city.
