This is a thread for discussing our latest article - Luke Yates's extra-gribbly Zombie Painting Guide. It's taken me ages to get it onto the site, but I hope you think it's worth the wait! Lots of great tips for advanced detailing, shown here on a large scale figure but still applicable to 28mm wargaming models.

Bonus tip: I don't recommend reading this one on your work computer while your colleagues are eating lunch...

You can find the new article here: Painting Zombies

Hey thanks blokes, it was a lot of fun to do - made the recipient emotional, which is a good sign smile.gif

And Screwyink, follow the article and you can! wink.gif

Wow, again Luke, awesome work.

It might seem bizarre, but my favourite part of your work is the t-shirt! It just looks... right. 10/10 mate.

Thanks blokes! Much appreciated!

Funny you mention the shirt, took me a little while to figure it out - sponging on the highlight gave it the right ook for material, happy with it - seeing as I didn't do a test smile.gif

Nice little tutorial there! I like how it turned out, plenty of contrast for a piece this size, if I had to critique something it would probably be the uniformity of the revealed muscle, particularly around the mouth it looks a little consistant... I would have like to see some more rotten/mottled colours... that's just me though tongue.gif

Quick question (not really related to the tute though) who do you get in contact with about writing articles? I emailed paul@goodgames.com.au a while back (months ago) but got no reply ???

That would be me wink.gif Send me an email at morsla-at-yahoo-dot-co-dot-uk if you have some article ideas that you'd like to discuss.

(Although Luke can vouch for the fact that I'm very often snowed under with work, and may take a while to respond!)
