Zombicide Season 1 Core Set & Season 2 Bonus Abominations (Contrast Paint Experiment #23)

Zombicide Abominations

As a finale to the previous two sets of Zombicide Abominations, I’ve finally finished my “normal” set of them. I may be missing one of them, actually. I’m definitely missing a Berserker Fattie. But as it stands, these are the last of my Abominations for the modern versions of Zombicide, finally painted (until 2nd Edition arrives!)

The “tourist” sculpt (see the camera?) seems to be the one I’m missing an extra model of, though it shouldn’t be an issue in most normal games – where four A-Bombs will be way more than enough. The other sculpt seems to indicate that he used to be a tradie (or a tradesman) with the tool belt, rag, drill and safety goggles. With that in mind, I tried to use approriate colours for them and gave a couple of them flouros. I also gave these “vanilla” Abominations white street lines on their bases as opposed to the yellow on the exotic ones, just as a small visual distinction.

Much easier to get individual colour distinction on these models, as they’re not covered in Red Carapace like the Berserkers, or “Toxic Green” skin as with the, er, Toxic ones, as I’m able to vary both the clothing and the skin on these. I used various Contrast Paints on them, thinning, mixing and varying them, even across the same model to create some (hopefully) disgusting discolouration – even if they’re not quite as disgusting as Poxwalkers. What say you, John?

I’ve thrown in this size comparison shot with a GW Ogre, showing that they’re decently tall models, especially when you compare the smaller bases with the GW model. That’s because I’m thinking they might count for Ann’s Miniatures of Magnitude Challenge being run over May & June. (Hurry! Last Days!)

Finally, here’s a group shot with the other completed modern Abominations. Not 100% sure on my next Zombicide step right now, I’ve got a ton of Fatties of all three types, but perhaps some of the more exotic Abominations from Black Plague and Green Horde would be more fun to paint, even if they’re not as common on the board as regular zombies, runners and fatties…

    • Thanks TIM. They were kinda painful to finish up actually with all the little fiddly bits (and needing to do them all x3) but now they’re done I’m quite happy with them and they’ll look great in games.

  1. Nice work with the contrast paints again! This some of those poses I’d be tempted to use them as a highly stylised Ogre team in Blood Bowl. Not sure what their gnoblars would look like though.

  2. Excellent work mate, the varied skin tones and clothing colours makes them easily distinguishable, and they look suitably gross as an abomination should.
    Have got the scenery challenge up on the blog, if your still interested

    • Cheers Pete – same here. I think we’ll have to get into it again at some point in the near future, but the question is if we pause on the D&D Adventure games for Zombicide, or keep on through the D&D games until they’re done before moving to ZC.

      • We have already played through the first season of ZC entirely, as well as most (all?) of the first expansion and S2. It gets messy at that point, though. Also played through most if not all of Black Plague, but not the expansions or Green Horde (abandoned that because the models for goblin runners and orc walkers looked too similar!)

  3. This batch looks great and man, do they look cool and scary all together. I think you need to do some crazy Zombicide army type photos when you’re done. That would look awesome! Your awesome paint jobs of these do make the game tempting too but I’ve thus far been able to resist picking up another game 🙂

    • Thanks Kuribo – I don’t think the whole Zombicide set is on the cards for anytime soon, though. I think perhaps some of the exotic Abominations from various sets and/or some of the fatties, but as for the endless hordes of regular zombies… it’ll probably need to start playing Last Days or something like that before I get into them…

      • I can totally understand that and take your time and do them when you’d like. I forgot about Last Days but maybe with all of the Fallout terrain I plan to build/acquire, that could be a fun game for me to pick up in the future. I’ll have to remember that one! 🙂
