Lets do some Zombie painting  :o
Undercoated.

.. now using the 20/20 hindsight and talking to cleverer people than me, undercoating in black for the groups would have been better as I have since found out painting them is a pill, because getting the brush through to paint the interior is... well lets say challenging, with lots of griping, recoats and one minor tantrum. With black undercoat, the misses may not have been quite so obvious
So far.. still work in progress

Far better figure painting skills than I have. Well done!

Seeing that horde approach would make me check my mag pouches and press check my rifle to make sure I had a round chambered.

 ;D

Maybe, although I appear to have a lot more browns, greys and greens in my paint drawers, most very drab colours for a rather different genre of figure painting ;)
Striped garments are right out.

For dead-ish people, they look very lively now. Great job on the clothing and features!

Some look a tad "ripe".

This ...

"Again, eww!"

... could be very appropriate if one was down wind of them. :-X

One of those things I suppose books and TV cannot really convey to the viewer/reader... the smell of the Post Apoc world would be overwhelming.

Anyhoooo...

Almost there.. this is more like what my Minds Eye saw for this dio. Might get a couple more Zombo's on but, this is the hordeish type effect I was after

That's a great dio! The shot of the soldier looking at the zombie horde from some iffy cover reminds me of "Blackhawk Down" - same sense of desperation.

The guy hiding under the vehicle behind the front tire takes this over the top.

Move your build into the fourth dimension and put one of these on the backside of the garage wall.
