ATZ Survivors

Some painted survivors for All Things Zombie and other, near-future games. Just to prove I haven't been entirely idle over the last few weeks. You'll note that two of them look a bit green. That's because the big guy also doubles as a Troll for Shadowrun games while the purple-haired lass doubles as an Orc. I like to think of the guy second on the left as my mate Andy. He has that "Meh!" look about him. The guy winding up the baseball bat is scarily similar to my mate Danny. More significantly, the dark-haired girl fourth from the left, is the painted mini' that represents my missus. Complete with her favourite tights. I'd better try damn hard not to get her killed. You can't see it very well but the little yellow object at her feet is the "button-box" from a pedestrian crossing, complete with little green man crossing the road.  I like to think of the Gurps fan on the right as a Game Store clerk defending his beloved store from looters. That's why he based on carpet rather than tarmac. I'm very happy with how the T-Shirt design came out. I tend to shy away from freehand work.

Alas, I also seem to have gone a little overboard with the Quick Shade on the Gurp's fan. I'm still not all that familiar with using the stuff.Sometime's I seem to do a decent job with it. Sometimes I use too much. Either way, it doesn't seem to save me that much time on the highlighting. I still end up putting on at least two layers.

They certaintly look playable mate!

Maybe finish of by painting the edge of their base. Either flat grey or black.

Thanks guys. I think you're right about that Siwoc. I tend to leave the base colour around my 15mm troops purely because it's helps them blend into my terrain better. But for the 28mm's They probably could benefit from having the edges done.
