Last night saw some progress on the first batch of Very Infected People. I have box set number 1. I started with a single model of each type and they are good fun to paint. Very different characters.
In the box we have have a 1970'ies black guy, some kind of rocker dude, a hospital Orderly, a female surgeon doctor and of course hotdog man.
They are coming along nicely. I have kept them to the original paint spec (not the Toxic Green Zombies). We are not playing their special rules as yet so I be treating them as normal walkers. They add a nice bit of variety to the growing hoard.
I gave 'hot dog man' a big yellow mustard stripe. I might try to zig, zag it on the next one.
There are five models of each type so it is going to be interesting to see how different I can get them looking.
This has been my first attempt at painting black skin and I am chalking it up as a fail! Well at least a learning event. I have learned how not to paint it. The trouble is you get one or two attempts on a model before it becomes swamped with paint. I have decided to try again but on a new model.
The plan this time will be to put in a base dark brown colour and then take that up through a series of highlights before knocking it all back with washes. This worked really well for painting black generally. In fact I am getting quite confident with it at this stage.
