Zombicide: BP – Painting Survivors #9

More survivors! Most of these were fun to paint – mostly simple colour schemes and some different colours.

The four figures are:

Clovis – Original Black Plague

Theo – Wulfsburg Expansion

Gowan – “Connor McLeod” (Christopher Lambert, Highlander movie.)

Troy – “Ash” (Bruce Campbell, Army of Darkness movie.)

There’s quite a variety in “quality” when it comes to the movie characters – the cards are generally very close to the actors representation, but the actual figure faces aren’t always so good. Troy’s card certainly looks like Bruce Campbell, but I feel figure is close but not great. ‘Gowan’ is worse – with perhaps the exception of the shield, the pose and gear is accurate, but the face doesn’t look that much like Christopher Lambert to me. The tartan is wrong too.

 

“Everyone yell at the enemy!”

I like tartan and Highlander (Scottish ancestry), but I’ve dreaded painting it. I wouldn’t say my first attempt is great, but it came together better than I’d hoped. In future, I’d paint slightly differently – light background colour, darker colour, then fine stripes, rather than trying to darken ‘squares’ after the lines. I used movie stills for accurate tartan colours.

I was pleased to get to ‘Ash’ – since I completed ‘Evil Ash’ (Survivor/Necromancer) a long time ago. I found a sculpting error with this figure too – there’s no sword hilt below the crossbar. The hilt should be visible between his hands – but there’s just an empty gap – and the very end of it should probably extend just below his left hand. I couldn’t be bothered trying to fill the gap, or manufacture a ‘repair’ – it’s not obvious unless you are looking very closely at his hands.

I also noticed after painting and getting ready to type that Theo’s base should be blue/green. His skill set is melee/ranged, so I’ve repainted half the base.
