Citadel C18 Zombie 'Kand-Meet'



Work on my second zombie by Kevin Adams is complete, and I even had a little attempt at a shield freehand design. As with the last miniature, this figure was released in June 1986 along with a large bunch of other rotters. He had a fairly long shelf life for a zombie, and was still available in the '90s as simply 'sickle'. 

I used a similar colour scheme as before, with greater use of silver metallics to paint up his rusted armour. For this I based everything in Foundry's Chainmail A, washed the lot with layers of brown and black ink before highlighting up with the remaining shades in the triad. Obviously using the lightest tone to pick out a few details on the edges of the breastplate and raised areas of the tattered chainmail. 


As you may be able to spot from this photograph, my eyes were really playing me up when I was trying to paint the teeth and this side of the model looks a bit gappy. But I am happy he is finished. Painting the shield design wasn't as hard as I was expecting. To be honest, I was a little worried about how things would turn out but if anything, I rushed through things as I enjoyed it so much. In hindsight, I should have waited for the layers of paint to dry thoroughly before moving on. 

You live and learn, I guess. 

I finished the shield up by carefully edging the rim with bright silver. 

All in all, a nice little model, if a little rank and file in style.

  1. Those Kev Adams zombies are great, and a good choice of you're have steadiness and/or vision problems. They're very forgiving and washes work well on them. Plus you can always hide any mistakes with liberal application of gore and others bodily fluids!

    Also, that skull came out great! I wish I could freehand one that well!

    1. Thanks Andrew. The painting process you describe is exactly why I chose undead as a starting point. Great minds and all of that! (:

  5. Lovely work on this zombie and good to have you back!
    Your work and your blog inspired me to return to my old lead. I started to complete collecting my 3rd Edition Dark Elves army while painting my remaining 4th Edition stuff. I documented my progress in a blog as well: https://georcs-workbench.blogspot.com/
    Thank you so much for the inspiration and motivation for these projects which brings me so much joy. Keep up your excellent work and my best wishes for your recovery. Kind Regards from Germany,
    Georg

    1. I am glad that this humble blog has been of some use, GeOrc. I have had a look at your blog and was impressed with your Dark Elf collection. I had a go at painting up a Witch Elf as a result. Let's just say, my painted models are NOT as good as yours ):

  6. Maybe a cherubic halfling face on the shield in a bit of contrasting humor?
