Amazingly, I managed to finish more models from this set before 2024.
I finished Gozer and Slimer late last weekend, and so they were photographed and ready to have a post written about them, though I hadn’t had a chance to write and queue one yet. Both are a little more nuanced in hand than in these photos. Gozer’s skin and outfit have a ferw layers of pearlescent purple in the midst of the rest, so she has a nice sheen in hand that you only get a hint of in these pics. Slimer was painted with layers of mixes of Vallejo’s Mecha Colour Flouro Yellow and Green, with Citadel’s Tessaract glow added in towards the end for some shading.
We haven’t yet used any of these Ghostbusters models or characters ingame, but Gozer is a custom Abomination, while Slimer is actually a companion card to the Ghostbusters. Not sure how that works in practise, maybe something similar to the Zombicide Dog Companions?
Then there’s the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. Unsurprisingly, he’s also an Abomination. I just completed this one late on Friday night/Saturday am. A tricksy one to paint, as it’s a large model without much detail and a smooth soft form.
I used Contrast Apothecary White with some greys mixed in at some points over a white prime, then drybrushing over the top. It’s a little manky, but I figure that’s okay since it’s representing an animated advertising dummy… thing in the “real world” rather than a fully-spectral creature like Slimer, so it doesn’t need to be perfect.
While neither Gozer nor Slimer are extra large and so may or may not count, Stay Puft certainly is large enbough to count for the Monster MAYhem challenge. This just leaves the four Ghostbusters to go for the three sets to be completed. They’ve been cleaned up, spray primed and given a wash, so once I complete the two “regular” Zombicide survivors and their Zombvivor counterparts that are on the painting desk, they’ll be next up!
