    Like the concept - I did a very similar thing by turning my Night Goblin into a Mordheim Dreg with bow and skull wand for summoning!

    I would really like to see some close ups too as I am very old and retro myself! Is that the Heroquest Chaos Sorcerer I see in there? ;)

    Now that I finally have all (ish) of my zombies painted up I think they deserve to be up here as well:

    Damn it Mad!
    Stop showing off, your making me look bad. ;)

    Must say though I do love the character in those units, just brings so much to them.

    Love the variety in yours Mad 'At, and the unit fillers really add something to the feel of the unit.

    A nice first set Senzo, the flesh looks genuinely mouldy - good job.

    I love the almost cartoon-ish style of your padrissimus, I wish I had the time and patience to paint like that. They genuinely look like something out of a clean-cartoon computer game (such as Magicka or Orcs Must Die). Great stuff.

    All the best

    Martin

    Doesn't have much on some of these efforts, but here's my measly 25 zombies that I painted up for Raise Dead purposes.

    Prime white -> Talarn Sand on skin -> mud wash -> tallarn sand drybrush on skin / watered white on clothes -> base -> white on eyes, grey on guts (which should have been done before the wash, but oh well)

    (Mods: I've been through the forum several times and I cannot find a show me thread for corpse carts so .... I really hope you don't mind!)

    Mine is a converted/kit bashed old chaos chariot, using a 1980s figures as the crewman and old plastic models for the draught horses.

    From the front (ish)
    ai69.photobucket.com_albums_i49_padrissimus_TileaCampaign_Corpse_20Cart_201_zpspbhsfaws.jpg

    From the rear (also -ish)
    ai69.photobucket.com_albums_i49_padrissimus_TileaCampaign_Corpse_20Cart_202_zpsbmoplgoa.jpg

    And the ancient paintjob on the rider - more than 30 years old!
    ai69.photobucket.com_albums_i49_padrissimus_TileaCampaign_Corpse_20Cart_203_zpsygcatat4.jpg

    There was something very satisfactory and appropriate about using ancient models as the basis of a resurrected chariot. This is meant as a 'counts-as' corpse cart as it is the chariot of an ancient head hunter (thus the piles of skulls) and so has an exactly similar magical effect on necromantic magic. The mass of skulls represent the mass of corpses usually found on the cart. There are some fresher heads too as the head hunter is up to hid old tricks even in undeath. Obviously as a hobby it is a hard one to quit.

    @Mad 'At Youve got an awesome horde of dead guys there, nice and chaotic too with those fillers.

    @Pirate Robot Ninja of Death Your zombies and basing are cool, they look like dead desert slaves or something. Nice job.

    @padrissimus Nice looking cartoonish zombies. Reminds me of zombies in WoW or something. Vibrant and creepy!

    Do frozen zombies last longer than normal zombies?

    You have to start a plog to show your entire army! The frozen theme kicks donkey balls, those zombies reminds me of Walkers from Game of thrones -series :D
    Love 'em.

    @Pirate Robot Ninja of Death It might be a little late to comment but I really like those zombies. I'm hankering to get some mantic ones myself. The models are much better than GW and the paint scheme on yours looks brilliant! They look really desiccated.

    Not your typical zombies, that's for sure - and while I don't see plaguebearers in the role of cheap fodder I must say that they are very well painted! Also a nice change from the typical green with these pale colours and pink :thumbsup:

    @hlt1984 First time seeing plague bearers as zombies, but they fit pretty well, I reckon!

    Nicely done disgusting-looking paint job too. Just 40 more to go xD

    an addition to my block of zambies - a filler, perhaps a crypt horror if he gets enough buddies for a full unit :)
