The boys decided to help paint the figures - Callum is now 10, Aiden 7, Nathan 6 and Katie 4 and the boys have been making kits and painting them since they were 5. Callum has painted 28mm Lord of the Rings and Hobbit figures. So we used the same simple method - spray white undercoat, block in the main colours, add a few details (grandad helps) and then wash over with a colour that brings out the shadows. A brown/green mix for zombies and a red/brown mix for most survivors. Once they are dry a quick dry brush and a fine pen adds a few details and then base and varnish.
First up some Zombies - we used them mainly for practice as a ropey paint job does not look so bad on them
Doctor Puke (by grandad) and "The Beast" (by Callum).
The zombie "lady" in purple swinging her hand bag has acquired a sort of character of her own. She is the most successful zombie at disposing of unwary survivors. The boys call her "Barbara".
