Another pair of Zombicide survivors again today – the first being a pretty obvious take on Sylvester’s Barney from the Expendables as well as an original Survivor from the Toxic City Mall boxed set.
Barney (or Benny? nah!) was both a tricky model and an easy one to paint, given that his outfit is made up of several shades of black.
I did like doing the weapons, though – the AA-12 was fun and yes, I do have a hammer that looks like that. I think it works well as a weapon in these games as a more plain hammer would stand out a lot less.
Neema was a pretty fun model to paint. Her pose, her curves and the folds in her clothes leant themselves to an enjoyable painting experience that was complete before it had a chance to get old.
That’s the thing that came to pass on this run of Zombicide models, really – while needing to essentially paint these models in almost-identical pairs, it was an enjoyable experience to be able to just pluck and paint different models with their own palette on what became a daily basis. I started with four (two pair) to paint with the models I’ve just shown in my previous two posts. After awhile, and starting with these two – once I sat down to paint, I’d complete the pair that I started the previous day/night, and then after completion, I’d choose a new pair to get started on – then complete that Survivor/Zombvivor and choose a new one to start on – and so on and on…
