Default Test Models On Acid Base

Hey hows it going lads?

Thought Id post up the nob ive just started painting to test my new scheme. IM not really sure where im going with this as im prettymuch choosing colours as I go.
Im fairly happy with the skin, im getting the right sort of zombie look id hoped for, however im not sure what colours ill put with this to make the models really go "Pop!".(I was thinking maybe something like yellow....or general bright primary colours as squad markings).

Argh, my main problem is that I keep thinking that if I going like this the whole army will be boring.....but maybe im just on the 'colour war' hangover from my feral orks...

The bases will be lava-ish, however ill be painting green/yellow acid instead of lava.



Anyway, heres the WIP 'ardboy nob. Pretty dodgey so far, but hes just to test schemes. The idea is to paint the entire army to this or a higher standard, focussing on each individual model like I would a character. Behold! crappy nighttime pics!

Maybe a Blue to make it stand out? Or Green, cause the skin sure aint!

Good work though, I like the zombie skin. Looking really sweet

Maybe a yellow like you said before, or a red even.

I like it a lot! Man, you're talented.

I think either a green or yellow would pop out the most.

The colour of the Flesh is excellent, and I think that darker colours would best suit them.

Looks good, I have a zombie scheme in my case somewhere.
I agree it definately needs another colour to liven it up..I think a red or yellow.

I think it looks great. I guess if you wanted to liven it up a bit you could mix in a little green in the flesh. I think it looks dull and grey...that's how zombies should look. ZOMBIES!!! :rockon:
