Mustard Gas Breath Zombies - Part One

I've finished working on the first two of four models from the "West Wind Productions" blister SOV-SOTR18 Soviet Zombie Horde, which I plan to use in the "Savage Worlds" "Weird War Two" setting as Mustard Gas Breath Zombies. Although these figures are Undead Russian soldiers they'll still be fielded as an element of the Axis Horror Force I'm collecting; their back story being that they're captured defenders of Mother Russia whom the Germans have experimented upon and gassed.

Having first replaced the (under-sized) Russian zombie heads which come in the blister with those from SHS-SOTR08 Soviet Gas Mask Heads in Helmets, these "Secrets Of The Third Reich" 28mm metal miniatures were undercoated with my usual Coat D'Arms Black. I then painted the majority of their uniforms with "Vallejo" Heavy Brown before washing them with the "Citadel" Shade Agrax Earthshade. The ribbed hosing for their gas masks was painted using either "Vallejo" Heavy Bluegrey or "Citadel" Adeptus Battlegrey, depending upon whichever colour was closer to hand at the time, for. These areas were later washed with "Citadel" Nuln Oil. The models' filter boxes were painted using "Vallejo" Heavy Grey with a double wash of "Citadel" Thrakka Green and Agrax Earthshade. Finally the Soviet helmets were painted with "Vallejo" Heavy Green and washed with more "Citadel" Thrakka Green.
I'm already quite well progressed on the other two Mustard Gas Breath Zombies, as well as close to completing a certain blue-skinned Genetic Infantryman from Nu Earth by "Mongoose Games".

  2. Many thanks. Hoping to have a game of "weird Wars" this weekend using both the Mustard Gas Breath zombies (who use a Medium Burst Template to represent the poisonous cloud which surrounds them), Werewolves and a British Heavy Machine Gun team.
