Cursed City: zombies, part 1

I have completed the first five zombies from the Cursed City box, and they have a lot of fiddly detail about them:

Okay so those coffin tops on their backs are held there by a steak which runs through the chest of each model and out the other side. The coffin tops may have soil on them, and flowers, and grass tufts, and maybe a gravestone, some flowers, some candles(!) and a bird. All these details – to say nothing of the roots growing through and out of the zombies – mean as you paint you’ll be making a lot of passes to pick out different bits. This is not the kind of model set you want to use for a zombie horde, in my opinion. Painting up the ten in the box will be quite enough for me!

    I’ll admit I keep getting scared off from painting these, they’re really lovely models but as you say – hellishly fiddly. You’ve done a great job on them though. 🙂

    Looking good! Perhaps this level of detail is best for the skirmish game of Cursed City and you could get some slightly less blinged-out zombies if you ever fancy a horde of them.

      Luckily I have the SAGA revenants if I ever need a horde, I would definitely look for something other than these models to paint 50-100 of!
