Last Night on Earth Growing Hunger Survivors: Kenny, Supermarket Bag Boy; Amanda, Prom Queen; Sam, The Diner Cook; Michelle, Detective Winters

I managed to get a decent number of Zombie Survivor models painted in March, as part of Ann’s “Neglected But Not Forgotten” painting challenge. As with the previous set, I’d originally hoped to get these done in February so that the two ladies could be part of Alex’ Fembruary challenge. But hey – nothing wrong with keeping up the female models throughout the rest of the year, either! As with the other LNoE models, these are pretty small PVC sculpts with soft, simple details, but as you can see here – they do work well. I kept to the artwork/photographs of the characters as my colour guides once again. Amanda’s metallic mermaid dress gave me a chance to experiment with different Contrast Paints over a pre-shaded metallic base, and I’m quite happy with how it turned out. Red Fire Axe once again – because I see it as a location-based “break glass in case of fire” situation. I’m not sure why the diner cook has a chainsaw. Maybe best not to ask…?

This four gives me all of the models from the Growing Hunger set painted now, and a total of eight LNoE models painted in March. I do have more LnoE models to paint still, but all of my “ready to paint” ones are now done. I’ll have to choose the next batch, and get to cleaning them up to prime. I do have more Zombicide models ready to paint, and in fact, I have a couple more of those tomorrow for my final set of March models’ to post…

    • Thanks! I’ve seen it (and used it a little) to get coloured metallic effects on armour, but this was the first time I’ve used it for metallic cloth, so very happy with the result.

    • Thanks Dave! I reckon being such simple/smooth sculpts they lend themselves nicely to straightforward paintjobs, unlike, say, the overly-blinged out nature of a space marine or almost any GW figure.

  1. Nice work as usual, mate! Board game minis are tough to work with in my experience but you frequently make it look easy just like with this group. These will all look great in your Last Night on Earth games 🙂

    • Thanks Kuribo! I think it’s just a matter of setting expectations for both the type of model, material and what it’s supposed to be. Simple civilians with a gun don’t need to be the most pimped out minis in my opinion, and the “blank canvas” nature of them means you can really challenge your brush skills to make them look good. (And they don’t need to be Golden Demon-quality models or paintjobs for it!) 😀

      • Well said! If you can set the right expectations, there’s no reason you can’t enjoy painting a less sculpt. I’m finding that I get snobbier and snobbier about sculpt quality with age so there may be little hope for me haha
