Zombie Cavalry update

Posted: May 12, 2013 in Uncategorized

Having spent the weekend with an absolutely stinking headcold I’ve not felt massively in the mood to paint. That said I did do a tiny bit more work on my zombie cavalry. The photos below show the difference in the colour of the horses depending on the basecoat used.

It’s a subtle difference but when ranked up it stops the horses from all looking the same.

As I type this three of the horses have been finished and just need basing, meaning that I’m struggling to work out how to paint two of the remaining riders. I honestly thought that painting zombie cavalry would be a very quick process, given how quickly I can paint zombies, but it’s turned out to be an incredibly slow process because each model is like painting a character model. I was looking at one of the models and I thought “Gah! Why is there so much detail on this figure!” a model from the mid 80’s no less.

Once the five zombie cavalry models are painted I’m hoping that painting some of my skeleton cavalry will be a much quicker process. In order to speed that up four of the cavalry riders are identical and just their steeds are different. After that I need to crack on with my Skull Chuckers and metal Undead Chariots.
