Mantic Zombies

Having had a sort out and re-shooting photos of my various miniatures I have just realised I never took photos of my Mantic Zombies once finished. Bit of a lazy post but I did take new photo's yesterday so :P

Re-vamped the old blog as it was looking a bit odd and mixed. So Here we go enjoy the pics.

  1. Excellent work Simon. A very scary group of rotter.
    More a catch-up post than a lazy one. It makes me want to do some zombie gaming..... hmm that's an idea. Thanks Brummie.

  2. Cool zombies and cool new design. Good job on the zombies. I know from experience how hard it is to get them just right: pale skin and nice red gore.

  6. Whoa, what a gruesome group! If that's a simple 'blocked in colours and wash' job, then you need a medal!

    And the new design really suits the blog, doesn't spike the eyes too much, either.

  15. Hey Simon, they look great. How long did it take you to get through them? Do you think you may have enjoyed painting these guys more than the other minis? Or one of the others more?

    1. Thanks Nathan. I can't remember it was this time last year when I did these it was in batch's of six probably about 10-12 hrs including building time.

      Delete
    2. Nice. That's around the same amount of models I have in my batches currently. I find it a lot easier to get through them like that.

      Delete
    3. Yeah I built/painted six and then painted something else in between. Did all the basing and varnishing in one go though for consistency

  16. I don't have any mantic, but for a while, they seemed to be the best option to really boost up your hoard in a hurry. Nice job.

    1. Thanks Adam yeah I think these can fit into multiple periods so I can use them in EotD, Modern and Fantasy gaming if needed
