I’ve been aquiring Mantic Zombies for a while now and somehow they never seem to get to the front of the paint queue. There always seems something I’d rather be doing. Mostly, they seem time consuming for something that will appear in hordes and is really never in center stage. They are impressive due to numbers rather than individual appearance. Now this goes against my nature to hurry and paint figures, but I realized they were never going to get done unless I did.
I came to this realization about the same time I found this thread. Such a wonderful effect for such little effort. I had to try it and these are the results. It took VERY LITTLE TIME and I like the effect. Now, to get the other 60 I have in their new paint jobs.
It’s a simple spray paint with cheap Walmart flat white, then a dip in Minwax Tudor color, two coats of cheap Krylon Matte Acrylic spray paint, and basing them with a golden harvest static grass for that dead and decaying look. I should be able to crank the rest our in a few nights.
