Zombie Giant: Bones 5 Figure (Part 1)

      This past week I started painting the “Zombie Giant” from the Bones 5 Core Set.  I thought it might be fun to start tackling some of the Kickstarter’s bigger figures. 
      I prepped the figure in the usual way, soaking it in a dish of water with a couple drops of dish-soap added, then giving it a light scrub with a soft toothbrush, and then rinsing and drying it.  I then trimmed the figure’s integral base a little, and glued the figure to a 2″ black-primed metal washer with some Aleene’s Tacky glue.  I then glued the figure to a pill bottle with a couple drops of white glue.       

     To begin, I painted all the skin with Americana “Jade Green”.  I then painted the open wounds with Pathfinder MSP “Urgathea Red”.  I then mixed a little of the “Urgathea Red” with some of the “Jade Green” and splotched the skin around the open woulds to give it a stained, rotting, look.  After that, I painted the club with Folk Art “Barn Wood”.

     Next, I painted his loin fur with Americana “Charcoal Grey”.  I then painted the bandages with Reaper MSP “Alien Flesh”, and then the wagon wheel and splints with Americana “Mississippi Mud”.  After that, I painted the necklace chain, and metal straps on the right leg, with Americana “Asphaltum”.  
     I then painted the rope with Reaper MSP “Ginger Cookie”, and the inside of his mouth with Reaper MSP “Drow Nipple Pink”. After that, I painted the exposed bones with Reaper MSP “Graveyard Bone”, and the hair bead on his left with Ceramcoat “Denim Blue”.  I painted the other beads with Reaper MSP “Fresh Blood”, Ceramcoat Charcoal”, and Accent “Mustard Seed”

     I then used the “Charcoal” to paint his hair, and I having noticed the metal band around the club I went back and painted that with the “Charcoal Grey”.  I also painted the teeth with Accent “Golden Harvest”.   then let the figure dry for a while.  When dry, I gave the entire thing a coat of Citadel “Agrax Earthshade”.  While I was doing that, I noticed I missed his toe and finger nails, so when the wash was dry, I went back and painted those with Vallejo “Brown Violet”.  When the nails were dry, I went back and gave them, and the inside of the mouth, a coat of  Citadel “Null Oil” wash. After that, I highlighted the teeth with Americana “Moon Yellow”, and then pained the eyeball with Apple Barrel “Apple Barrel” “Apple Parchment”.  I then painted the iris/pupil with Americana “Zinc”.  When dry, I went back and went over the iris/pupil with a wash of the “Apple Parchment” to try to give it a milky appearance.

    That is all I got done for now.  Be sure to tune in next week for the highlighting and completion of this figure!
