Mantic Zombies painted

Well, the first three zombies are done. Actually they have been done for a couple of days just haven't had the time to take pictures of them. But now there are! The models was easy enough to paint, and I could probably painted them faster than I did but the extra highlights and blood just add that much more flavour to the models. Anyway, will paint the converted zombie ghouls next and here's some pictures of the painted Zombies.

First of all sorry for the poor updating of the blog lately, hasn't painted much the week after I came home. Why do you ask? Well there's a couple of of things, but one thing that have taken up a lot of my time lately is a game called Minecraft. My brother showed me the trailer which I will post here and sure the graphics look like crap but god it's addictive and very fun. Unfortunately that leaves not much time for painting at the moment, but one of the Zombies should be done in the next days and then I will post some pictures of it here of course.

Also the new White Dwarf arrived at my house today, haven't read it much yet but there is a lot of stuff for you Dark Eldar fans out there. You sure deserve a updated codex and some new models, and I really think they are gorgeous. Well more about that in the next posts, look at the trailer now and decide if you think the game seems to be worth my time.

News: Ultramarines Second Movie Trailer

Okey I'm back from my holiday going from 30 °C on Gran Canaria to 7-4 °C back home in Sweden :( Anyway it was warm and fun there but it's nice to be home again despite the fact that it's so god damn cold here right now. As you may understand I haven't had any time to do anything Warhammer or Kings of War related yet, but I'm gonna start painting some zombies and some of the converted ghouls asap. In the meantime you can look at the new trailer of the animated Ultramarines movie.

I'm afraid it looks just as awful as the first one though, the voice acting seems to be all right but the animation just looks really old. I mean the old Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within looks a hell lot better and that movie came out nine years ago! Sure they probably don't have a huge budget (especially when compared to the FF movies) but I really think a Wh40k movie deserves better. Well, look for yourselves if you haven't seen it below.

Mantic Zombies!!

The zombies are here! I finally got my hands on the zombies as well thirty more ghouls on Friday. Been quite busy last weekend and I won't do much updates until next week as I travel to Gran Canaria tomorrow. But atlest you will get a small update today and see what I have done to my zombies and ghouls the last couple of days.

As I have mentioned earlier I wanted to kitbash the zombie sprue with the Ghoul one to get more variation to the units. There are no problem combining the two sprues to make Zombies, but making Ghouls was a little bit trickier. The main problem of making Ghouls with the zombie parts is that they look to decayed which results with them looking like Zombies anyway, so I decided to do some Greenstuff work to make them look a little bit more alive and human. You can see the result below.

As you can see (hopefully) there isn't any major GS work. I made clothes for the torsos on two of them and I needed to fill up some places where the skin is missing with greenstuff. Particularly two of them around the knees and lower legs. The hardest bit was probably the one that got an nose job and the one to the left where I needed to sculpt the right portion of his face. Not anything really hard, but hard to tell if it will look good until they get some paint on.

And then there was the Zombies. I used almost only the Zombie sprue for these guys, and I didn't need to do any GS work on these as I want them to look decayed, they are Zombies after all. Just added some more intestines and some maggots.

So not much done yet I'm afraid but there will be more, well next week anyway. I will also make a decent review of the Zombie box and pretty much all of the undead from Mantic in the near future as I now have all of the undead range that has come out. So stay tuned for more!

Eleven ghouls sitting in a tree

Eleven ghouls finished, god knows how many more there will be. I've just finished three more ghouls and it actually starts to look like a unit which is always nice. The latest of the bunch have some minor greenstuff work done to them to make them look a little bit different from the rest. I am especially keen on the one with the long hair, just add a electric guitar and he would look like belonging in a Heavy Metal band. Cool to see how such small changes actually makes them really different from the rest of the bunch, which is needed as there only are three head options.

I won't convert everyone of them though, my order from Mantic with 60 Zombies and 30 Ghouls was dispatched yesterday, and when they arrive I will have plenty of options of kit bashing the two boxes and make more different looking ghouls as well as zombies, really looking forward for this.

I have also taken some pictures (although not very good ones) of the whole bunch of maniacs so far, and I must say I really like how the unit looks ranked up, really ragtag and crazy looking, decide for yourselves.

More flagellants, soon a horde of forty maniacs

So I've finished more of the flagellants, really happy with how they turned out. Especially the old Zealot models from the Mordheim Range, love those models. I have actually finished three more ghouls as well but will show you them tomorrow, as I wasn't happy with how the pictures turned out. Still struggle with the new camera. Not much more for now as I need to get to bed, but here is the pictures of the latest addition to my flagellant horde unit.

Ghouls and Flagellants

Okey not much updates lately, have been quite busy with renovation of the bathroom and stuff. But here is a little update of what I'm doing right now.

As you can see I wanted a little more variation on my ghouls so I added little bits of greenstuff on them, not any major stuff but it makes them a little bit different. I have also ordered new stuff from Mantic, I choose to buy 60 zombies and 20 more ghouls, as they are interchangeable I will kitbash these quite extensively.

I'm also in the process of painting more Empire Flagellants, the two Mordheim Zealots to the left and in the back just need some Quick Dip. The one in the front is in the converting stage and my intention is to make him into an Prophet of Doom, I will take more pictures of him when I finish him up.

On a other note I have finally bought a new camera as well, still need to learn a bit more how to use it properly but these two photos is taken by it and I think they look quite decent, down below are a picture of one of the old ghouls which I hadn't any good picture of, this one looks better and I even took it with flash turned on.

Thats all for today, will try to post more updates in the future. Until next time.
