The second episode in the Zombicide: Black Plague painting series is now live and features the abomination.
Taking the approach used for the regular zombies in Episode 1 as a starting point, this video then focuses on the basics of highlighting to bring about a more dramatic level of contrast which will prepare us well for tackling the necromancer and heroes!
The reference shots referred to in the video can be found here and will hopefully be useful to anyone unsure of where to place their highlights.
The video also contains plenty of newly-composed music; some of which re-uses the 15th Century song “L’homme armé” (“The Armed Man”), along with the even older English round “Sumer is Icumen In” (loosely translated as “Summer has arrived”).
Most of the music is however entirely original and includes brooding Baroque-style guitar passages (as heard at the beginning of the skin highlighting section) as well as more upbeat, modal sections featuring the hurdy-gurdy and the evocative, traditional Hungarian string instrument – the gadulka (as heard in the trouser highlighting section).
I hope you enjoy watching the video as much as I enjoyed making it!

Thanks for the music musings. 🙂
You’re welcome! (I’m just happy to hear someone reads it) 🙂

I just finished painting Black Plague following your tutorials. I learned so much thanks to them! I put some pictures and referenced you on my blog http://jareksboardgames.blogspot.com/2017/01/zombicide-black-plague-zombies.html Maybe after 10 more painting series my minis will look at least half as good as yours 🙂
Outstanding work! I think you’re a little harsh on yourself in the comments; you highlights are coming out very nicely on both the necromancer and the abomination. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
