Zombicide: Black Plague Green Horde – Orc Abomination (Contrast Paint Experiment #20)

Zombicide: Black Plague Green Horde - Orc Abomination

Just before I took my little break from painting for a few months, I was working on different Abomination models from my Zombicide boardgames. After completing both the Berserkers and the Toxic Abominations, I started on the basic ones, as well as this guy – the Orc Abomination from Black Plague’s standalone expansion, Green Horde.

Unlike the Abomination from the Core Black Plague boxed set, who had weird looking protuberances which I chose to paint like Warpstone, this guy’s ones are pretty clearly in the bone spike/horn category.  Especially given that his spine appears to be eriuipting from his back as well, it just made sense…

Because we’re doing both Orc and Zombie here, I went for a desaturated pale green, as though most of the Orc’s blood has drained out of him. Purple lower leges might have worked there as well, but they’re not especially bloated, so I let it go. I let the blood (both his own, old blood and whoever donated the spatter on his claws and chest act as the spot colour, as he was pretty dull without it. (And by design, too!)

He does, I guess count as another Contrast Paint experiment, This time it was using the stuff in a very similar way to how I’ve used washes on zombies before. Particularly the purple-on-putrid-green look. Verdict? Well, obviously I used a bunch of Contrast medium on them as well, but it came out pretty similarly to the Army Painter wash. Possibly a little more subtle in the transitions due to the way that the Contrast Paint works… (and yeah, looks like I found some more Photobucket posts there to unfuck!)

Zombicide: Black Plague Green Horde - Orc Abomination & Abomination

Finally, a family shot next to the Core Black Plague Abomination. Once I finish the 5 or 6 Abominations from the base Zombicide Game (they’re on the tray) then I just need to seek out where I put the boxes with the fancy add-on Abombs from Black Plague and Green Horde….

And finally, if we’re talking Ogre-sized monsters, I figure this one will also work for Ann’s Miniatures of Magnitude Challenge for May & June. I just thought of that while typing this post, but yeah – this guy is Ogre-sized, so just squeezes in at the minimum height to get on the ride…
