More 28mm infected/ zombies - Dara O'Briain in drag zombie!

Below are pictures of the last three Pig iron miniatures off the paint tray. As per my last post, the figures are based on Micro Art Studio bases and have been painted with a mix of Vallejo and Citadel paints and washes.

Now, I can't be the only gamer who's mind starts to wander when he's painting... but is it me, or does the female zombie in the yellow blouse look like comedian Daro O'Briain in drag?
Next on the paint table are four US Special forces troops and an attempt at digital camouflage!

28mm infected/ Zombies

 The problem with following blogs is that you always see more goodies that you must have!  Pig Iron Miniatures new 'infected' were a must have. When I saw the pictures on their blog they reminded me straight away of the infected dark seekers from the movie 'I am legend'.

When the figures arrived I was delighted with the quality of casting and the details on the figures. I was however surprised to find that they had 'posts' on the end of their feet, meaning I would have to use resin bases.

A quick ebay search led me to Micro Art Studios. They provide a super range of detailed resin bases and gaming accessories. I bought 2 packs of their 25mm urban bases, they ship 5 bases selected from the 12 below.

To attach the figures I used a Dremel to drill two holes. I then used superglue to fix them in place.

As for painting, I used a selection of Citadel and Vallejo paints and washes. I used Citadel rotting flesh from their old range for the flesh (I suppose they have an equivalent now).

The pictures below show the completed figures.

OK this picture is the same as the first, but I left the flash on and it created a nice sinister effect... I'll give you three to start running!

Next on the paint table, three more infected and four special forces figures from Hasslefree miniatures.
