Zombie/Undead schemes

Postby genghis ken » Sun Nov 03, 2013 9:46 pm

Im looking for a few color recipes to work on my growing army of zombies. These are more the Walking Dead kind rather than the Warhammer models. Not that I think it makes a huge difference. Can I get some suggestions on what paints variations you might use to add a mixture to the growing horde.

I like a german green-grey taken up by adding khaki/stone colors with a thin purple wash.

Purple Wash! I never thought of that. Going to pick one of them up and give it a try. Thanks J.

I also like mixing warlock purple with Khaki or whatever light brown you favor and then just adding more and more khaki for successive highlights.

The purple wash from bottle was a little to strong. I watered it down a bit and it seems to be a good combo to go with the brown washes. This way ive got a few different looks abound for the figs. Never thought of purple, thanks you guys.
