Zombicide: BP – Painting Survivors #2

Morgan – Merlin (Nicol Williamson) from the movie “Excalibur” (1981).

Bob – Tim the Enchanter (John Cleese) from the movie “Monty Python & The Holy Grail”.

Baldric – Original Black Plague set.

Karl – Black Plague, Wulfsburg expansion.

 

 

Another four survivors finished. Mostly straightforward painting with these, except that both Baldric and Karl have a number of items hanging from their belts. I did spend some extra time doing some extra shading on the cloaks/robes that they all wear in addition to using ink.

 

 

I hadn’t realised (until I was going to paint the figure) that Karl wears a wolf-skin across his back. I suppose I hadn’t looked closely at the card image (or the figure) until this last week. My previous wolf painting was good preparation!

Three are straight magic skill characters – thus orange bases. Karl does have two “Combat Action” skills, but with +1 die Magic and Spellcaster as skills, I think it more likely the character will be used with magic than melee or ranged. Morgan has three distinct magic skills, but he starts with +1 die Combat at blue, and has melee choices at orange and red. As a result he’s got a dual colour base (orange/blue) to signify his playability as either magic or melee, or a combination of the two.

 

I’ve been taking photos with my phone for a while – mostly because it’s easier to use. I haven’t been particularly happy with the quality of the pics though, so today I found batteries for my camera and used that. I think they are much better, so it looks like camera again in future.

EDIT: I watched Excaliber during the week.  (Mostly to show my wife the story of Arthur, since watching ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ earlier this month didn’t explain anything.) As a result I’ve just repainted ‘Morgan’s’ skullcap to silver (like Merlin in the movie) and I think it looks much better!
