Hey hey folks! Firstly, happy New Year! Apologies for the extended break-the honeymoon was amazing (if tiring-Chicago, San Francisco, Las Vegas and Miami in 17 days then flying back to the UK is more than a little knackering!) and I can highly recommend the Tonga room if you are ever in San Francisco! Work has been crazy busy since we got back, but I finally managed to get a few things finished up whilst visiting the in-laws this weekend, so here we go with the sketches ...
Zombie-thinking of this guy as a kind of standard foot soldier for making up the hoard, with multiple heads, different colourways etc
Nap time zombie (this guy's still in his jammies)
Crawler-one of two 2.5ishD crawling zombies I'm working on And some human victi...HEROES!
Jack-this guy's lost his family and is bent on revenge
Kelly has put her martial arts skills to good use since Z-Day
Adrian-an ad agency intern, he just thought it would be another day at the office...
I have a few more bits and pieces (more heroes, some female zombies), but don't want the post to be too long and boring!
Will keep you all updated and hope to get a little more active on the boards again!

Have you looked at Apocalypse Z..... it's a supplement for battlefield evolution by mongoose. Minis in your style would be perfect for that. I've managed to find most of the human forces form Onemonk..... need fireman and swat teams though. Firemen have become vital zombie killers with their protective gear, gas masks and axes. The terra force models are great for most of the rest. Need more zombies though The mad cow has allready been draughted as a 'zombie beast'.
Love 'em. I particularly like the idea of the '2.5D' Crawlers - matter of fact I was thinking a couple of days ago about creasing shoulders and such to add dimensionality. Jack and Adrian look particularly cool, too.
LOL! ;D'Fraid that progress is at the 'slow and steady' stage at the moment, abaddon. Had an awful 'why can't I draw all of a sudden???' night last night resulting in a lot of screwed up inks and frustration, but did get the weapons scaled in right this morning before work ( I got in a little early...) Soon-I promise!
Well, I managed to catch the stomach bug that was doing the rounds so was out of action for a few days (THAT was a great way to end the Valentine weekend! ) but I have managed to start colouring the new batch, so worry not!
I will post a 'sneak peak' as fig each is finished, but will be putting these together in one set-am thinking one hero (in the 3 stages if I have time), and 3 or 4 zombies.
In almost related news I am now trying to decide what to go for for the wii-Dead Rising or House of the Dead Overkill. I have a birthday coming up so...

You sound like a fellow obsessive
Have you looked at the New world disorder game? I downloaded it with it's zombie expansion..... basically Necromunda gang type campaigns, but you can have one player running the zombie hoards every now and again.
woosh: also, where can i find cool ships and mechs? im looking particularly for any spider tanks or spider mechs. ive seen the site with all the mechwarrior papercrafts and ive made a couple of those but none of them are especially spider-like

chiefasaur: Sweet tutorial! Now I know how to make paper minis ;P

oldschooldm: Yup. More power to anyone who tries it. It will only whet the appetite for people who want paper minis that were designed to be paper minis. :-) Fronts and Backs FOREVER! :-) [... it's bait, don't bite it! ... ]

cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.
Feb 26, 2019 20:46:54 GMT -9
berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?
