Zombtober - First Survivor - Madonna with Knife

Hi All,

I finished this earlier today, but we had a shake out workout and then I was too busy watching Fear the Walking Dead to post.


She turned out alright. The Grunge wash is not quite where I want it to be. Somehow I didn't get the black portion of it right. But it still does the trick of softening my heavy handed highlights.


Showing you the back is mostly an exercise in self flagellation. I struggled with painting texture into the back of the jacket. The detail is pretty soft. I do like the detail I painted in her hair, the top and back of her head are smooth, only the curls are sculpted.

I have and Orc on the table as well, but couldn't get him finished for Orctober.

  1. I like the painting; it works very well. Can't help thinking that the sculpt is a little odd, though.

    1. HI Hugh, the sculpts are very odd. These are plastic "Army Men". The plastic is fairly soft and has a bit of memory, hence the curved knife blade. Since these figures were just for a goof, I didn't fuss with cleaning them up too carefully or unbend limbs or weapons.

    2. Is this the set the figure came from? Where did you get it? It doesn't seem to be on Amazon (not to be confused with a similarly named set from Sphereworks).

    3. Hi 1Mac, that looks like the one. I thought I got it from Amazon. Perhaps they don't carry it anymore.
