Only three figures completed today, although I did spray undercoat another dozen ready to work on during the week. I ready should have photographed them before the spray varnish – there’s a fair bit of reflection on Stormcrow. He was an annoying figure to paint, since the card image is all brown with little variation. He’s been partly done (browns) for at least a month before I got stuck into finishing him off over the last few days. He finally got an assortment of browns, with some grey and black for variety.
From left to right: Dr. Stormcrow (Kickstarter exclusive, artist Adrian Smith), Glynda (Hero Box), Mizar (by guest artist Paul Bonner).
There is a suggestion that Mizar is based on “Illyn Payne” (Game of Thrones) – the face/expression certainly match, even if even nothing else does.
Glynda is pretty much what you would expect from a melee dwarf character, and Mizar is similarly a straight-forward caster.
Dr Stormcrow is very different from most of the other survivors: His entry skill of ‘Hold your nose’ fits the character perfectly, and I think ‘Zombie link’ goes well with the theme too. The other skills are the best options you could have on a Zombicide survivor – all ‘Combat’ and no specific melee/ranged/magic options – allowing you to work with whatever situation you need each turn, as well as making the most of whatever equipment you have collected.
