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

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)


From the rear (also -ish)


And the ancient paintjob on the rider - more than 30 years old!


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.

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.

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
