|Nectar of the gods?|
I had actually begun painting some zombies a while ago after taking part in Victory Forces cheap zombie sale earlier this summer, but without the blood effects, I wasn't ready to show them off. The first two zombies actually aren't from the sale, but were from their more unique figures of zombies, and I simply couldn't pass them up.
So here we have the children's entertainer and the basketball player. Both zombies are fantastic in my opinion, but I think the 'Barney' zombie takes the cake. He is just so unique that everyone will recognize him immediately and probably be thankful that he was among the first to become infected. The basketball player, while a good sculpt, is really only unique in the fact that he is significantly taller than the average 28mm figure. I gave him the number 17 as it was among the easier numbers to paint. No rounded edges!

You'll probably also note that I did not center the basketball player on his base at all. I use washers with a hole in the center as bases, and had a difficult time attaching the zombie. It does look a little odd, but I am thinking of adding a traffic cone or some debris to break it up some more.

I realized in this photo from the back that I had failed to 'bloody up' the wound on Barney's under arm. I took care of this later, but did not take another picture of it. The ball player also had something sculpted by his left foot. I just covered this in blood and treated it as though his skin had fallen off, as his lower leg is just bone. Hope that's what it was meant to be.

Hope you enjoyed the first zombie updates to this blog. There will be more, but none of the Victory Force deal zombies are as interesting as these two, so they'll probably come in larger batches.
Thanks for reading, and I appreciate all comments and opinions.
