It’s true this is late, but better late than never eh? Hobby mojo was at an all time low these past two weeks and it was so hard to feel motivated to work on anything really. But last night I managed to get back into the gear of things and really had to force myself to stop before it was past midnight, again. :)
Finished up these two WW2 German zombies last night for my very much side-project (Weird War 2) Konflikt ’47 collection. They were made from the plastic Warlord Games German Grenadiers boxed set. I wanted to keep them “gore-lite” and so just a single obvious wound on both. (It struck me that horribly mutilated or injured corpses would not work for reanimation as they’d be too mucked up!)
|Painted these with a similar formula that I used for my fantasy zombies. One is missing a hand, the other got shot in the eye.|
|Eye-shot has an exit wound in the back of his head, which I thought was fun.|
Uniforms were painted with no particular unit or theater in mind but I think at least can't be confused as anything other than a Heer uniform.
As my current 28mm WW2 efforts are all Winter theatre, I will finish the snow-basing at a later date so I can get them done in a big batch with my latest Winter Soviets.
Speaking of which, here are six members ready for basing that will represent my “free inexperienced squad” (Per the Soviet National rules in Bolt Action.). Again, snow basing to come once all squad members are completed.
|Squad leader pointing the way.|
|Free unit gets Anti-tank grenades (Molotov cocktails) so there are a few members of this unit who are sporting flaming bottles and/or grenades.|
|Goodness I am not a fan at all of prone poses....|
Better pics to come once everything is based.
Let's see if I can finish out Zomtober with a flourish - there's three more of this undead squad to complete and only 3 days to get them done - yikes...
